Breaking!! Classic TMNT Characters Coming To Sequel!!
By Jake Buchanan
"Cowabunga!"-Ralph, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)
Whether you liked it or hated it we're getting a sequel to 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so sit back relax and eat some pizza dudes!
As Jonathan Liebesman makes his departure from Michael Bay's rebooted TMNT it looks like Dave Green(Earth to Echo) is in talks to take the helm of the TMNT sequel. In an interview with TMNT producers Brad Fuller & Andrew Form held by brazilian entertainment outlet "Omelete" the duo confirmed that characters Bebop and Rocksteady will be in the sequel.
Now they also hinted at possibly trying to fit Casey Jones in the film as well, but only time will tell if we'll actually see the hockey masked vigilante appear in the new series. If anything we'll definitely see Bebop and Rocksteady before Casey Jones in the new TMNT franchise, because both producers have hinted at this duo of characters before coming to the previous TMNT but obviously that didn't happen.
In the end I'm all for classic characters coming into these kinds of franchises, and I would highly enjoy seeing Casey Jones turn up in TMNT 2. If Jones doesn't fit it in the story then leave him out until the next TMNT where it makes sense to have him, and with the addition of both Bebop and Rocksteady in this one I think it'll definitely bring some great nostalgia to the franchise.
Sound off in the comment section about what YOU think about Bebop and Rocksteady being in TMNT 2! Also the possibility of Casey Jones making his debut in the new franchise as well! Thank you for taking time out of your day to give this a read and make sure to share it wherever you can!
