Rumor has it that G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra's sequel might have an Scarlett/Snake-Eyes/Ripcord love triangle. Being one of the first sub-plots commented for the sequel, I tough it'd be interesting to discuss? What are your opinions about it?
I personaly like those kinds of concepts, even if they might be viewned as "Cliche", because it adds conflict and humanizes the characters. But I can see some people don't liking it, especially if Scarlett ends up choosing Ripcord after all.

I honestly hope Scarlett turns to Snake Eyes in the sequel. You can really write off the relationship between Scarlett and Ripcord in ROC as a pseudo-fling. Scarlett is portrayed as a tortued character in ROC. I think SE should lose his speaking ability in the sequel right after he decides to break his vow of silence. Make it happen like in the comics (saving Scarlett in a chopper or one of the Joe-Jets). Then Scarlett feels responsible and also is drawn to SE as they both have tortued souls. That could come out really big. The Spider-man movies were successful due to the way the character was portrayed as a tortured soul. Joe #2 can learn from that.

me too. Keep things canon. Reminds me of Justice League cartoons where GL John Stewart had a romance with Shayera (Hawkgirl). In the next Justice League Unlimited series, the creators decided to bring in Katar Hol aka Hawkman, and guess what Hawkgirl returns to Hawkman arms and John Stewart started a new romance with someone more appropriate (Vixen). I hope Marlon got someone else as goofy as him.

I would have liked to see a little reaction by Snakeyes at the end. He seems the jealous over protective type.

If its one thing i did hate about the movie ,it was the relationship between Ripcord and Scarlett! It should have been with Snake Eyes or Duke.

Maybe this is Paramounts/Hasbros ham-handed way to segue into fixing their plot screw up.
If they can bring Snake and Scarlett together after botching up RoC I won't complain no matter how corny it has to be.

Well, first there would need to be a Scarlett/Ripcord relationship.
I didn't see one in the movie, just some flirting and what looks like could end up being a good friendship at the end.

So, the movie has been out for 4 days, the sequel has been greenlighted for 1 1/2 days, and there are already "rumors"?
I heard a rumor (in my head) that the next movie will have Destro as a pimp daddy, Baroness will be played by Megan Fox and Duke will be recast as Brad Pitt but use CGI to make him younger looking.
I think there is a difference between wishful thinking from fans and studio rumors being leaked before a screenwriter has been attached to the film treatment.

Of course, towards the end, she actually kisses Ripcord. Whether that was for good luck or whatever, it was completely needless and out of character. In both the comics and cartoons, Scarlett's always been portrayed as having an active dislike of jokey horndogs like Clutch/Toonwreck/Snailscord.

I don't want to see it! She belongs to Snake Eyes. Plus I noticed something today after seeing the movie for the 3rd time now. She was hanging off of him in the control room like a couple would do. Plus she went to go grab him and hold him tight when he was running back to her and Breaker running to the elevator. I think in the next movie Ripcord will have another piece of tail to go chase, and it will be the blooming of the love story between Scarlett and SE.
On a final note- 11 year old boys coming out of the theater told their mother "That was the best movie ever!" So like it or not- us ARAH fans are stuck with these mythologies and character changes!
