TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS Trailer Shows Us Casey Jones, Rocksteady and Bebop

Here’s the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the sequel to 2014’s original, Michael Bay-produced adaptation of the comic series and 1990s cartoon about the quartet of titular crime-fighters. Of course, it’s fun to see the musclebound, bro-ish turtles back in the game, chasing after Shredder and weirdly flirting with April O’Neil, but the real reason to watch the trailer is the new characters. First and foremost, there’s Arrow himself Stephen Amell playing hockey-stick-wielding vigilante Casey Jones, with Tyler Perry appearing as a pre-mutated Baxter Stockman; Laura Linney is also hanging around for reasons that aren’t entirely clear as of right now. There’s no sign of Krang or his suit.

Stockman is most important because he’s the one who creates Bebop and Rocksteady, the classically dumb pig and rhino mutants who are a constant hassle for our heroes. The design of both characters, not unlike the turtles, is a bit too interested in realistic fidelity, attempting to give a a sense of what a mutant would look like in the real world. And of all movies that don’t need to look realistic in any sense of the world, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows already looks to suffer just a bit too much from a blend of juvenile nonsense and grim plot machinations..

Here’s the trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows:

The film is directed by Dave Green, who last helmed Earth to Echo, and written by Andre Nemac and Josh Appelbaum, who scripted the original film and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows stars Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Johnny Knoxville as the voice of Leonardo, Tony Shalhoub as the voice of Splinter, Alan Ritchson as the voice of Raphael, Noel Fisher as the voice of Michelangelo, Jeremy Howard as the voice of Donatello, Brian Tee as The Shredder, and Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick. Alessandra Ambrosio, Stephen Farrelly, and Gary Anthony Williams also co-star.
