As many of us 90's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans are aware, the second installment, TMNT: Out of the Shadows, is just around the corner hitting the silver screen with an iron (green) fist June 3rd. Out came the early catchy trailer played to RUN-DMC's "It's Tricky" where we finally witness the long-awaited hockey stick-sparring vigilante, Casey Jones, and the forever bad-boy mutants, Bebop and Rocksteady.

Well, some new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 TV spots have just arrived online this week, and one quick fifteen second trailer (seen below) offers a new glimpse at our latest baddie outside of his cybernetic suit. However, it wasn't until this clip that we caught a glimpse of infamous TMNT villain, Krang, in any previews. Why? No, producers Michael Bay and Brad Fuller were not trying to keep you in suspense or attempting to leave it a surprise. The main reason: TIME! Krang being one of TMNT's most complex characters, consisting both of robot parts and brainy flesh, it took ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) until last Tuesday, May 10th, to complete this intricately meshed composite, only about three weeks before premiere day! Talk about calling it close.

Check Out Krang!

Producer Brad Fuller explains in the interview below:

Do you wanna know why you haven't seen Krang? Because we didn't finish him till last night! It's the most complex character because from a CG standpoint, to have a robot and then a brain that's interacting with the robot that's interacting with other characters - it was the biggest challenge that we had on the movie, was kind of realizing the vision of that.

As the saying goes, good things take time, and this gooey evil-doer is no exception. Staying true to fan requests and the original characters, Krang along with Bebop and Rocksteady will make for a great time at the theaters for many nostalgic viewers. Let's not forget to give it up for Stephen Amell's Casey Jones! Goongala!
