Ninth Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston is currently co-starring in the live action movie based on the G.I. Joe toy range – and G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra is currently riding high in the US box office as the top movie over the last week.
Eccleston plays a key character – the main villain, James McMullen who is also the major Cobra villain, Destro!
What this means for the movies future as an ongoing film franchise is unclear however – Christopher Eccleston is of course notoriously non-commital on long running projects and after taking a few months to film G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra who knows if he will return to play McMullen/Destro in any future installments?
Bearing in mind of course that Destro is a masked character, there is plenty of scope for the former Doctor Who star to appear minimally or not at all in any sequels.
Incidentally, Cobra features a team member known as “The Doctor”…
