"Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes, their brotherhood/relationship is one of the most famous in the G.I. Joe lore," Golding said. He continued by pointing out that the two have gone through a lot together so it would make sense that they have an existing bond.

"They have such an interesting, forever-wavering relationship of hate and love. They love each other as brothers because they've been through the same thing," Golding said.
