With the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back in the Summer of 2014, a lot of hype was built on the second movie. This line of movies had already been planned to be made a trilogy, so we could easily expect a second movie. And that movie will be hitting theaters June 3, 2016. All the four lovable turtles will be back along with April O'Neil, Master Splinter, Eric Sacks, and of course, The Shredder. We will also be seeing Karai, the possible love interest for Leonardo in this film, along with the Foot Clan, it seems as though everyone is back for the sequel!
But, hold on! We have some new familiar faces joining the team. Yes, in this sequel, they are introducing Casey Jones, Bebop, Rocksteady, and Baxter Stockman!. Although it was planned for the Kraang to join this film, all casting lists are showing no sign of actors who would possibly play as the voice of the Kraang. Most people do hope they will make a appearance in the third film, with a much bigger role.
Everyone was very excited to know that Casey Jones would be making an appearance in the sequel. Stephen Amell will be playing as our masked hockey player. Fans have complained about how he does not have the lock hair, like Casey Jones is known for, but this is how things ended up turning out.
Fans have also wondered if beloved Irma would be taking role in the third film, but no one knows for sure. And most fans who have this question, really ponder is she will still remain as the possible love interest for Donatello. But that's a whole other movie away! So let's not get ahead of our self.
Bebop and Rocksteady will also be starring the the sequel. But we are not going to see them as mutants first time around! It has been said that Bebop and Rocksteady will be humans in this film. Yes, most people are upset, but there still is a chance for them to become mutated later on in the film. Stephen Farrelly will be playing as Rocksteady, while Gary Anthony Williams will be playing as Bebop. The well known duo is believed to be working for Shredder in the movie. As of late, there is no evidence pointing towards them becoming mutated in the film, but they most likely will.
Back in around some time in March, the casting list listed the Kraang being in the upcoming film, but recently, has been taken down. We can only assume that they will instead come back in the third film, with a much larger role than what they had in this one. There isn't even a set design on how the will look, but pictures around the internet can give a pretty good idea. It is not known if the Kraang will work for Shredder or against him. Only time will tell.
Finally, Baxter Stockman is returning in the second film. It has been mostly confirmed that he will mutate into Stockman-Fly sometime during the film, and that will truly be an amazing sight to watch! It has been confirmed that he will be working for Shredder. Although like in the 2012 animated series, where he was mutated as punishment, it is unclear how he will become mutated in this film.
As for the third film, which has yet to have a release date, fans are hoping they will bring back the characters that they left out in this film, such as Irma, Fugitoid, and possibly more mutated characters that the turtles can team up with. With two more movies to go, and an evil overlord to rule in each one, will the turtles be ready to kick some shell?
