Cobra could, conceivably, make a good Hollywood movie.

Not least of which not many people have even read the manga or seen the anime enough to complain.

I guess as long as they're not white-washing it. Laughing

Can anyone else see a face in his shirt? It looks kind of like Zero from Megaman X to me.

And the only actor who could possibly do Cobra perfectly is Chuck Nurris.

Owen Wilson gets my vote for the role of Cobra.

Dammit, I keep saying Thomas Jane needs to be Cobra, not a Chris Hemsworth/Kurt Russell-type. Mad And Owen Wilson and Chuck Norris would blow, 'cus one's too old, and the other's too hipstery.

I like the image...70's hair and all. Laughing

I've never seen any of Alex Aja's films, but, from I've heard, he seems to have the right mind set for Cobra. Aja's films tend to be fun and over the the top like the original Cobra manga/film/OVAs/tv show. After hearing about Aja involement and the ad, I'm willing to see how this film turns out.

This could work very well as Cobra is very much deep trenched in Western Sci-Fi and action hero influences.

Only if Wilson is willing to get buffer or should I say "thicker"?
They better include the classic opening theme in the film, hahaha.

I am surprised that I really like the Ad, I am glad that they know what they are doing Very Happy

Didn't know the Cobra from GI Joe was a Space Pirate.
