‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Comes Out Of The Shadows With First Trailer
The first trailer for next year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel has arrived, and with it a new title, 'Out Of The Shadows'. The trailer boasts all the usual summer blockbuster carnage that we've come to expect from superhero movies, and arguably some intimations of a plot, but perhaps of more interest are the first glimpses of a few fan favorite characters, including Casey Jones and Bebop and Rocksteady.
Hockey-themed hero Casey Jones is brought to the screen by Arrow star Stephen Amell, doing something here that we rarely see on Arrow; smiling. Brian Tee takes over the role of Shredder from the first movie's Tohoro Masamune, while hench-mutants Rocksteady and Bebop are given their voices by Gary Anthony Williams and WWE wrestler Sheamus. In addition to the trailer, Paramount released 'Wanted' posters featuring the two characters in their human forms. They've clearly been very bad boys.
Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Johnny Knoxville and Jeremy Howard all return to provide the voices of the Turtles, while Tony Shalhoub is back as Splinter; and Tyler Perry joins the cast as mad scientists Dr. Baxter Stockman. It's not clear from the trailer if Stockman will mutate into his fly form over the course of this movie.
Out Of The Shadows also sees the return of Megan Fox as April O'Neil, William Fichtner as Eric Sacks, and Will Arnett paying his bills. Directed by David Green (Earth to Echo), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows arrives on June 3, 2016.
