The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot had a very polarizing effect on its fans, but it was enough of a box office smash to lend itself to have a sequel. Following the release of the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out Of The Shadows comes a brand new TV spot, which features all sorts of new footage and a few more details on the plot of the upcoming film.
While the most recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film wasn’t well received by film critics, it was still a big hit with audiences, and a lot closer to the ’80s cartoon then the first trilogy. the sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, will introduce the hockey mask wearing vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell), the nefarious scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and the Shredder’s (Brian Tee) dim-witted mutant henchman Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE’s Sheamus).
But the new characters don’t stop there. Producer Michael Bay has one more character to confirm for the sequel, and it is most definitely a fan-favorite. According to the producer, Krang, the living brain who hails from Dimension X will make an appearance. More on the story below.
Those heroes in a half shell are back for an all new adventure that will surely be a polarizing trip down nostalgia lane. The first reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film franchise debuted back in 2014, where it was a huge box office success but was critically panned. The fact that Michael Bay was and is attached as producer doesn’t help with loyal fans. But since the film was a resounding success grossing over $490 million worldwide, obviously a sequel was going to happen.
For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows, director David Green takes over for previous director Jonathan Liebesman. And with a sequel comes brand new characters, some of which may be familiar to fans of both the comics and the cartoon. Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly, a.k.a. WWE’s Sheamus), and Doctor Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) will be the Turtles’ new adversaries. But there will also be new allies to aid them in their fight against the Foot Clan. Casey Jones (Steven Amell) will join the turtles as the hockey mask wearing vigilante and possible love interest to April O’Neill (Megan Fox).
