TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2 May Include Another Classic Villain
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is currently shooting in New York City, and thanks to Cinema Blend we have some details on another classic villain that might be included in the story. For those of you who are hardcore fans of TMNT, I’m sure it won’t be hard to guess who that character is, but in case you don’t have any idea, and you don’t want it spoiled for you, don’t read any further.
There have been rumors in the past regarding this character, but the name hasn’t really popped up since production started on the film so I wasn’t really sure if he would be making an appearance or not.
According to the report, though, the alien brain villain Krang will be making his live-action debut. The news comes from a source close to production, and they also said that last week a scene was shot which involved “a number of extras and the character's arrival on Earth through a portal of some sort.”
Krang was a character created for the TMNT animated series, and he is a warlord from Dimension X who commands a huge army. After he lost his body, he teamed up with Shredder, who constructed a new human-shaped exo-suit body for him. In exchange, Krang let Shredder use his mobile battle fortress known as the Technodrome.
There’s no word on if this is how it will play out in the movie, or if they will create a whole new story around the character, which wouldn’t surprise me.
As of right now we know the film stars Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, William Fichtner as Eric Sacks, Tyler Perry as scientist Baxter Stockman, Brian Tee as the new Shredder, Gary Anthony Williams as Bebop and Laura Linney, who was cast in an undisclosed role.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set to be released on June 3rd, 2016.
