The Turtles are the star of the show in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, but plenty of fans have a soft spot for April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and Casey Jones (Stephen Amell) as well. A couple of deleted scenes give more screentime to the Turtles’ human friends, and even makes some room for a blast from the past, in the form of Judith Hoag — the original April O’Neil from the 1990 movie. Watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows deleted scenes below. Read More »
The most recent trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows just debuted before the weekend began, and it finally showed more of the Dimension X villain Krang really sticking it to the heroes in a half-shell. Now some new clips from the sequel have arrived online, showing us even more of the new supporting heroes and villains.
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 clips give us the introduction of Arrow star Stephen Amell as the new Casey Jones as well as the mutation of Gary Anthony Williams and Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly as Bebop and Rocksteady. And if you’re in the mood for seeing more of the turtles in action, we get to see some more of the airplane jump sequence. Watch below. Read More »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows brings back all the heroes in a half shell from the last film, but it also introduces a brand-new hero into this world: Casey Jones, played by Stephen Amell. And although the hockey-stick wielding vigilante has been a part of the Turtles mythology since the ’80s, Amell gets to build the character from the ground up, and bring some new twists to him in the process.
“We are meeting the character at a very early part of his evolution,” Amell told me during a post-set visit interview. “When we meet Casey Jones in the movie, he’s not a vigilante, he’s a corrections officer.” Amell knows his character looks more “clean cut” than past iterations, and that’s by design. “Basically, you’re looking at a Casey Jones that tried to do it the good way and tried to live on the straight and narrow, and it just didn’t work out for him,” he teased. “And so he gets that glint in his eye, maybe a few shadings of what might become as a character.”
While we’ve got a few more weeks to wait until we really get to meet the new Casey Jones, Paramount has revealed a nice little taste of Amell’s performance — including his rough and athletic fighting style — in a brand-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 clip. Watch the video, and then read our full interview with Amell, below. Read More »

We met the newest live-action iterations of Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit screens in 2014. But when they return to theaters this year in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, they’ll be bringing some fresh faces along with them.
On the friendly side, the most exciting new addition is probably Casey Jones, the hockey stick-wielding vigilante to be played by Stephen Amell. And it’s just as well he’ll be along for the ride, since the Turtles are going to be up against some dastardly new foes including Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), Rocksteady (Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), and Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) — and maybe most exciting of all, Krang. A new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Super Bowl spot offers a better look at what’s in store for our heroes in a half shell. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was the Turtles’ first live-action theatrical feature in 21 years, but the guys haven’t waited quite so long to issue a follow-up. Arriving next summer is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, which brings back the beloved heroes in a half-shell — Leonardo (Pete Ploszek and Johnny Knoxville), Raphael (Alan Ritchson), Michelangelo (Noel Fisher), and Donatello (Jeremy Howard) — as well as their allies April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett).
The gang will also be joined by new friends like Casey Jones (Stephen Amell) and Rebecca Vincent (Laura Linney), and face new foes including Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry), Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), and Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly, a.k.a. Sheamus). Dave Green (Earth to Echo) replaces Jonathan Liebesman in the director’s chair. Watch the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer after the jump. Read More »

For fans who may have disappointed in last year’s reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the studio is hoping you’ll give them a second chance, and they’re including some fan favorite characters to help get butts back in the seats.
