Despite the fact that last year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie sits lamely at 21 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, Paramount is filming the 2016 sequel.
And over the past few weeks, there's been a slew of new information. Let's take a look and hope it will make a movie worth watching.
First and foremost, Megan Fox's April O'Neil is blonde
And apparently a sexy school girl?
It doesn't really jive with the whole depiction of O'Neil as a hard hitting journalist imho.
And here's what she thinks of the wig, apparently...
Then we got the first look at Casey Jones
There's no doubt about it, that mask is preeeeeetty dumb looking. Especially since the original from the comics/cartoons/first movie just wore a hockey mask to protect his face and hide his identity. This just looks like Casey Jones is trying way too hard.
Still, never forget that Sephen Amell plays Arrow on the eponymous CW show. And with him is always his abs.
Bebop and Rocksteady are happening
The bumbling pair of mutants from the original cartoon series will make a big screen debut in the upcoming sequel. The only thing that has leaked is the concept art which looks pretty similar to the cartoon's representation:
They have not yet appeared in a TMNT movie, although the 1991 sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret of the Ooze gave some similar characters in Tokka and Rahzar (who were originally a wolf and a snapping turtle).
Also a new Shredder has been cast
Brian Tee was cast in the role of The Shredder multiple outlets reported April 28.
The actor has been in a variety of other franchise like Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, Mortal Kombat: Legacy and the upcoming Jurassic World.
Tee replaces Tohoru Masamune, who played the shiny villain in the 2014 movie. Who knows how he will differentiate the villain who leads the foot clan and who has made mortal enemies of genetically mutated juveniles.
So what say you? Excited for the TMNT sequel?
