‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Delivers First Trailer and an Official Title
In case you forgot — because 80 percent of the real estate in your brain has been occupied by Star Wars — there’s a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel on the way. Arrow star Stephen Amell plays hockey hero Casey Jones in the upcoming film, and the actor has revealed the first footage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows…and oh yeah, that’s the title.
UPDATE: The full trailer is now live, above.
Amell dropped the 15-second teaser on his Facebook page, where he also announced that the first full trailer will arrive tomorrow morning. We get only the briefest glimpse of Amell in character as Jones, hurtling toward the screen between sets of cars on the street while something is tearing after him. You might also catch a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance from what looks to be either Bebop or Rocksteady, the famous TMNT villains.
And you’ll also notice Tyler Perry, determined to squander his Gone Girl goodwill by playing yet another TMNT villain: Baxter Stockman. It’s unclear if we’ll see him actually mutate in the sequel, or if they’re saving that transformation for a potential third film (post-credits sting, anyone?).
Update: Paramount has released “wanted” posters for Bebop and Rocksteady (in their obnoxious human forms, at least):
Megan Fox, Will Arnett and William Fichtner are returning to reprise their roles from the first film, with the WWE’s Sheamus in the role of Rocksteady, Gary Anthony Williams as Bebop, Brittany Ishibashi as Karai and Brian Tee as Shredder. Directed by David Green (Earth to Echo), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows arrives on June 3, 2016.
