Despite much backlash from the first Michael Bay Turtle Romp, the second movie is hoping to gain a better reputation by serving up a heaping helping of fan service with news that fan favorites Casey Jones and Baxter Stockman will be playing a huge role, but the biggest news has been the inclusion of Bebop and Rocksteady, two punk rockers that get mutated into a rhino and a warthog. But fans have been worried about how the two will look in their mutated forms with some less than stellar CGI being used in the first movie, but now, Casey Jones himself, Steven Amell has leaked a sneak peak over on his facebook page.
UPDATE! The full trailer for the sequel to the 2014 film was released Wednesday night, earlier than expected. (more…)
As fans of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series know, Shredder’s two hench-mutants, Bebop and Rocksteady, were the opposite of everything that the Turtles were: they were stupid, untrained, ineffectual, thuggish, and mammalian. They were supposed to be part of the first live-action Turtles movie from producer Michael Bay, but they were cut from the script before production began. Now part of the sequel, the duo are now being seen out and about on the streets of New York in their pre-mutation form. The set pics don’t reveal their exact role in the film, but it does open up a funny guessing game to play with friends. Guess which one is Bebop and which ones is Rocksteady. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. (more…)
Michael Bay just tweeted the first look at Arrow‘s Stephen Amell in full Casey Jones Mask, armed with his hockey stick. It will be interesting to see Amell on the big screen without his bow and arrows. He brings a solid fan base to the TMNT franchise that while it should have some crossover, will help the movie at the box office. (more…)
No doubt trying to drum up some hype for the latest TMNT installation after the mixed feelings about the first film (and by mixed feelings, I mean primarily bad feelings), producer Michael Bay released three images from the set of the upcoming movie on his website. The images depict two vehicles that will be used in the film; a garbage truck that also functions as a party wagon for the Ninja Brothers, and a Polaris Slingshot. (more…)
