My 6-year-old self is quaking in her boots with fear because the cantankerous disembodied stomach-brain that is Krang has been confirmed for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2!
For those of you who aren't totally familiar with this classic TMNT villain, below is a clip that demonstrates how hilarious it is that I was authentically terrified of the nostalgic '90s toon.
While my adult self has gained enough composure to scoff at the grumpy glob of gray matter, I'm still super psyched about seeing the sassiest cerebellum getting to renew his reign of terror for a new generation!
Krang will probably be getting a bit more of a makeover though, or in the concise words of Michael Bay himself:
"He could have some tentacles. I just don't want them coming out of the side. He looks like a stupid octopus."
Refreshingly, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is a return to form for the slightly ridiculous, although much beloved band of baddies of the franchise who, let's face it, seem the most appropriate to fight heroes who also happen to be shell dwelling reptiles.
We will also be seeing old school faves Rocksteady and Bebop hitting cinema screens for the first time in decades and, if they are anything like in the trailer below, they could be the best villains yet!
