If nothing else, Paramount is doing a great job selling G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which sees the return of Channing Tatum, Ray Park, Lee Byung-hun, Arnold Vosloo and Jonathan Pryce to the fold, and adds Adrianne Palicki, Ray Stevenson, RZA, D.J. Cotrona and small-timers The Rock and Bruce Willis.

The first batch of official identification card photos for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra have made their way onto the interwebs. A bunch of previously unseen characters are featured. I have put together the image above which features the four new characters.
