Though many fans didn't care much for the first film, the sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is at least shaping up to feature some pretty interesting new faces and concepts. We've already gotten a promise of Bebop and Rocksteady heading to the flick, though we haven't seen them yet, and last month we got an intriguing bit of casting news: Stephen Amell will play Casey Jones.
That's right, Amell will go from being a vigilante on Arrow to being a different kind of vigilante altogether for TMNT 2. We don't know yet if the character will be a friend to the Turtles or a foe, whether he'll romance April O'Neil or not, or really anything else about the character, but Amell could definitely bring more fun to the sequel. Of course, before he can do that, he has to have a costume, and it looks like this is it:
That image was posted to producer Michael Bay's official website today with nothing but the headline "Stephen Amell as Casey Jones," so unless it's some kind of trick, this is the real deal. True to form, Casey's got a taped-up hockey stick in hand, and he's got a particularly wicked-looking new hockey mask that looks appropriately battered. Plus, that looks like one of Raphael's sai sticking in the signpost to the right of the frame, so perhaps he's in the middle of a Turtle confrontation?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will arrive, Casey Jones in tow, on June 3, 2016.
