When it comes to Ninja Turtles movies Shredder is almost always the villain, despite there being plenty of other options to choose from such as Krang, Baxter Stockman, and Rat King. There’s also good henchman options aside from just using members of the Foot, such as Bebop and Rocksteady.
This was no different with the latest take on the characters, the Jonathan Liebesman-directed and Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that was released this past August, where William Fichtner played the infamous villain. But some new concept art has found its way online and shows what Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady might have looked like had they been used in the final movie. There’s also concept art for different versions of the turtles and Shredder than the not-so-popular designs used in the movie.
You can see the artwork below.
The concept art comes from Tsvetomir Georgiev through visual effects studio The Aaron Sims Company. You can see Georgiev’s work over at his Facebook page.
UPDATE: We’ve been asked to remove these images, as they were not approved. Below are some new approves images, though sadly none involving Krang, Bebop, or Rocksteady.
But… William Fichtner did not play the villain. He was supposed to. And why didn’t Shredder look like one of those? Good god Shredder was awful.
