We know Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will see fan favourite vigilante Casey Jones return to the franchise and that he will be played by Arrow star Stephen Amell. And now Michael Bay has shown the world what the hockey stick wielding anti-hero will look like in a new on-set photo.
The photo sees Casey Jones as he should be – complete with a menacing hockey mask and a hockey stick. TMNT 2 will see the new character alongside the returning Turtles as well as April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett). New additions to the cast include Tyler Perry, Alessandra Ambrosio, Laura Linney and Brian Tee who is cast as the new Shredder. Iconic TMNT villains BeBop and Rocksteady will also feature in TMNT 2.
Production of the film is currently underway in New York but little else is known about the storyline for the sequel including the role Casey Jones will play. In previous films as well as in the comic books, the character and April O’Neil were romantically linked, but right now, it remains unclear if the sequel will follow that direction.
TMNT 2 is scheduled for a June 2016 release.
