‘But, when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honor and allegiance will be tested — even if that means losing the trust of those closest to him.’
Talking about the role during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres last month, Golding explained: ‘It restarts the G.I. Joe universe and we concentrate on one of the most iconic characters which is Snake Eyes.
‘And we start right at the beginning – his origin, who he is as a person, his mistakes, his lessons, his goals and it pretty much opens the window for exploring the rest of the characters that we all know and love.’

For the action movie, Golding had to hone his martial arts skills and he told Ellen that ‘the training was intense.’
‘It was a lot of sword work… Four hours a day of choreography and an hour and a half of training a day for two months,’ he went on. ‘It was a real trial by fire but the action sequences are out of this world.’
