Say what bad things you will about the TMNT reboot (and to be fair there were very some bad things) but to a 10 year old, it was pretty awesome (and hasn’t that always been TMNTs target audience?). It wasn’t your fathers Turtles, for sure. But… with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes 2: Out of the Shadows coming into theaters on June 3, the sequel looks to bridge the gap between old time fans and the newer younger generation. While the action and camera work still looks like something Micheal Bay crapped outta his butt, it features characters that first generation fans never to see in those 90’s live action movies (TMNT 1-3). Specifically speaking – Beebop, Rocksteady, and Krang!!! Giant Turtles with human noses and everyone loses their minds.

While the first film had some white guy in a suit overshadowing the iconic Shredder, this sequel is delivering much more recognizable characters. So far we’ve gotten a peak at Bebop, Rocksteady, Baxter Stockman and Casey Jones. However, there was a lot of initial speculation of whether or not one of the Turtles’ biggest enemies would be included. Would we finally see the live-action debut of Krang? Thankfully, the answer ended up being a resounding “yes,” and we finally got out first look at our favorite talking brain in tonight’s Super Bowl Spot. (more…)
