Cobra Commander's Face Not A Total Wash?

Illustration for article titled Cobra Commanders Face Not A Total Wash?

I think we all remember the terrible fail that was the leaked toy face of G.I. Joe's live action Cobra Commander. Now, the Cobra actor, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is trying to put our minds at ease.


In an interview, Gordon-Levitt said it was the face of Cobra Commander that got him interested in the part in the first place. And reassured us that what we've seen isn't truly the face of the Commander, in the most side-stepping manner ever:

That toy is not my face. It's a mask. I like that I get to keep my face. It has less to do with me and more to do with this character that I helped create. That's more thrilling to me. It's this thing that was born out of a creative, collaborative process between me and a bunch of other people that all worked on creating this character.


Well, clearly it's a scuba mask and not your face - this is what upsets us. But if you're telling the fans that there will be another reveal of the face under the tubes and gadgets, I could maybe, possibly, sign on for that. [AP]
