Then this happened:
I love that image of the Cobra flags being unfurled at the White House...reminds me of Zod taking it over in Superman II. And how about that great reveal of Bruce Willis? He's apparently playing the man who started it all, General Joe Colton. That's right, John McClain puts the "Joe" in "G.I. Joe". Fantastic.
John Chu, I'm sorry I ever doubted you. Bring it.
