Last week, we showed you new character posters for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, which hits theaters nationwide on June 3. Those posters showcased each of these heroes in a half-shell, springing into action, but they didn’t feature any of the supporting characters. Today we have a new international poster, which brings the Turtles together with April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and fan-favorite character Casey Jones (Stephen Amell).
After super villain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady, to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang. Portlandia star Fred Armisen has come aboard to voice Krang, joining a stellar cast. It isn’t known if Paramount plans on releasing even more character posters featuring beloved characters like Casey Jones, Baxter Stockman or Bebop and Rocksteady, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Noel Fisher (Michelangelo), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo) and Jeremy Howard (Donatello) all return to reprise their roles as the Turtles from 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, along with Megan Fox (April O’Neil), Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick) and William Fichtner (Eric Sacks). Tyler Perry has come aboard to play Baxter Stockman, alongside Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Brian Tee as Shredder and Brittany Ishibashi as Karai. Laura Linney also joins the cast as a law enforcement officer.
Dave Green (Earth to Echo) directs TMNT 2 from a script by André Nemec and Josh Appelbaum. The screenwriters also wrote last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which took in $485 million worldwide from a $125 million budget, and they also wrote the 2011 blockbuster Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, which was released by Paramount. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is slated for release on June 3, putting it up against Universal Pictures’ Popstar: Never Stop Stopping. It’s possible that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 could put up even bigger numbers than its predecessor, but we’ll have to wait and see.
If Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows proves to be another big hit in theaters, it wouldn’t be surprising if Paramount issues a green light for a third Turtles adventure. We haven’t heard anything about plans being made for another sequel yet, but we’ll have to wait and see how well this sequel does at the box office. Until then, take a look at the latest poster, and stay tuned for more on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, in theaters June 3.
