In Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins, Henry Golding plays Snake Eyes, a tenacious loner who is welcomed into an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage after saving the life of their heir apparent. Upon arrival in Japan, the Arashikage Snake Eyes learn the ways of the ninja warrior, while also providing something he longed for: a home. But when secrets from his past are revealed, Snake Eyes’ honor and allegiance are tested, even if it means losing the trust of those close to him.
