I could care less. I think of stalker as a leader which there is already one too many of those in the movie so Im glad its not him.
also... if you go in wanting this movie to be like gijoe WAS then your going to hate it. just go in and enjoy the movie and look for tidbits that ARE like the old GIJoe.

Considering the Ripcord err... I mean Stalker rename debockle, I figure it has something to do with what Hasblo has deemed politically correct or what they believe will be assimilated by the mainsteam audiences without any backlash.
Whatever, it is bunk.
I will go see the movie but don't get your hopes up. Enjoy it for what it will be and that is a summer blockbuster show. Maybe if it goes over well, Part 2 and Part 3 and the eventual Snake Eyes movie spin-off will be much more entertaining.
Hell, maybe they will have a Snake Eyes vs. Wolverine TV mini series!

Stalker is a more popular character than Ripcord,without a doubt.perhaps he will make an appearance in the sequel ,just like Transformers where quite a number of fan-favs robots weren't shown in the first movie.

Terry Crews would be good for Roadblock. But, he is up or the role of B.A Baracus in the A-Team movie,

It's easy for us to say, "ZOMG Hollywood is so stoopid! Nobody would think someone named "Stalker" is silly or bad!" because we've grown up with "Stalker" and have retained a connection to this mythos.
This movie isn't for us. We're a pathetically tiny minority within the intended viewing audience for this film.
It's for the millions of people that don't have the slightest clue (or don't remember) who "Stalker" is, and whose first thought when they hear that word is a skeezy psychologically unbalanced dude (or girl) who hangs around outside celebrities' homes and tries to insinuate themselves into their lives, sometimes to the point of murder.
Sad but true.

The only thing the Marlon Wayans character has in common with Stalker is they're both black men. Other than that, the characters don't come close and you would be insulted if he was called Stalker.
The Marlon Wayans character is closer to cartoon Shipwreck.
Looking for at reasonable prices:
