We’ve had to wait a while, but we finally got our first look at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ big bad villain, Shredder (now played by Brian Tee), all suited up.

The actor debuted the image over the weekend on his Instagram and Twitter accounts in the wake of the movie’s first clip, which aired during the Nickelodeon's 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday. 

The clip features our turtles Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Donatello trying to put a stop to the Foot Clan’s freeway robbery in a high-octane action scene. Turtle Power!!! Check it out:


As for The Shredder’s new look, it seems like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles powers-that-be have learned from the backlash they received for the 2014 live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and have endeavored to stick a teeny-weeny bit closer to the source material for the sequel.

In the new movie, April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and the Turtles join forces with hockey-mask-wearing vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell) as they take on Shredder, Krang, Baxter Stockman and fan favorites Bebop and Rocksteady.

The Ninja Turtles come into conflict with T.C.R.I. scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman with the association of the Foot Clan and the return of the Shredder, who has hired Stockman to create mutants of their own in the form of Bebop and Rocksteady and an unknown invasion above New York City. To prevent the end of the world, the turtles and their human friends April O'Neil and Vern Fenwick comes to the aid with vigilante Casey Jones.

Directed by Dave Green, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Stephen Amell, Tyler Perry, Brian Tee, Laura Linney, Sheamus and Gary Anthony Williams. The movie will open in theaters June 3, 2016.
