Great news for fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! People were pretty disappointed once it became clear that plans had changed in production and Shredder's two lackies Bebop and Rocksteady wouldn't make an appearance in the first [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles](movie:323027) movie for reasons unknown.

Bebop and Rocksteady might be one of the only villainous pairs that people really enjoy. Not just because they're bad, but because they're really funny. While their comedic attempts at catching the Turtles was missing from the first film, Paramount is ready to remedy that fact in the sequel.

According to Collider (via Omelete), producer Michael Bay and his partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have stated:

We can say that Bebop and Rocksteady are in the film, and Casey Jones is a character that we love and we’re trying to fit him in as well.

This, of course, means that Shredder will return for the sequel, but I'm also hoping that Krang makes an appearance in this one. Will Arnett and Megan Fox are already set to reprise their roles of Vernon Fenwick and April O'Neil, respectively.

Now we'll anxiously await the casting news to see who will play these Foot Clan members.

[Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2](movie:2181585) is set to hit theaters on June 3rd, 2016.


Settle this office debate. Which of the Ninja Turtles is the leader?
