Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 comes out next year with David Green at the helm, and for what its worth, at least the fans have something to look forward to. The first film grossed well over $480 million dollars under Clash Of The Titans helmer Jonathan Libesman directing, so you can imagine there’s plenty of reason to move forward with a sequel that will further expand the franchise in a new age of fandom.
Sure, its an age everyone has, and will always have an opinion on, and you can count on there being plenty, especially if you were waiting to see Arrow
star, actor Stephen Amell
as Turtles’ ally, the sportsgear-wielding masked vigilante Casey Jones with a full head of hair. Nope, not the case here, but this is the Casey we’re getting, so there’s that.
There’s plenty to hope for though here. I’ve never seen Earth To Echo, but I enjoyed the first film for the absolute cheese and spectacular no-shits-to-give levels of fun it was, and it’s a Michael Bay production so I expect no less. Plus, this sequel is expected to introduce animated characters Bebop and Rocksteady, as well as actor Tyler Perry‘s iteration of mad scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman to accompany the impending return of The Shredder with actor Brian Tee in the mix.
It’s shaping up pretty well so far, but we’ll know plenty once we see the footage. Plus, it’s got a great fight coordinator on hand, and I had the pleasure to meet him last month! Feel free to click here and find out how that happened
