In Case You Were Wondering, Firefly Also Looks Awesome in G.I. Joe: Retaliation

No real news here, but if the few snippits of Ray Stevenson as Firefly in the G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailers and TV spots didn’t give you a good enough look at the character (I think he had his mask off in most of them anyways), well, then this new international poster should set your mind at ease. He looks both accurate and awesome, serving as a reminder that you can please fans and mass audiences alike, you just have to put in the tiniest amount of effort. It also serves as a reminder than including Bruce Willis in promotional materials nowadays requires an absurd amount of photoshop, but that’s neither here nor there. There are several movie new Joe posters at ToyNewsI, if you’re so inclined, although none of them are as groovy as this one.
