If you thought Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 was already crowded with our four heroes in a half-shell, their reporter pal April (Megan Fox), vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell), supervillain Shredder (now played by Brian Tee), scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and the arrival of Rocksteady (WWE’s Sheamus) and Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), you may not like this latest update.
Michael Bay has confirmed that one more villain from the TMNT universe will make their big screen debut in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and it’s one that some fans have wanted to see for awhile. Read More »

New York City is practically teeming with superheroes these days, but there’s always going to be a place for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The “heroes in a half-shell” have been charming fans since the 1980s, undergoing several makeovers in the meantime. Most recently, they returned to live-action with their 2014 big-screen feature — and next year these turtles will be back for more with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
Back in June, I had the opportunity to visit the New York City set of the movie. And yes, I do mean a New York City set, not a Vancouver-pretending-to-be-New-York-City set. We visited a law school dressed to look like a police station, and the effect was so convincing that I walked by the set several times trying to find it before I realized what I was looking at.
While there, I got to chat with some of the cast and crew. Among other things, they revealed what they learned from the first film, what’s gonna be different in the next film, and what they’re really looking forward to showing the world.

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.
Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly) will be appearing in the sequel, but the real draw in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is Arrow star Stephen Amell as vigilante Casey Jones, an ally of our heroes in a half-shell. But while fans may be excited to see the hockey-masked crime fighter in action again, Amell says that this version of Casey Jones is a little different than you might expect.

Ever since Marvel Studios launched their cinematic universe, other studios have been desperate to replicate its success.
