The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle reboot by director Jonathan Liebesman was panned by critics. Even though reviews were bad, that isn’t stopping Paramount from doing a sequel (it did well at the box office). For those who didn’t like the movie, there’s good news; director Jonathan Liebesman won’t be returning. Who will be taking his place? That would be David Green, who did the found footage family film, Earth to Echo. (Okay, so that’s not saying much, since that film was split by critics.)

Two popular villains from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon were Bebop and Rocksteady. These were two clueless thugs who became anthropomorphic animals, a warthog and rhinoceros, respectively. In an interview with Omelette, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes producing partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form said that fans can expect to see the two mutants in the sequel. Casey Jones may also be in the film as well.

“We can say that Bebop and Rocksteady are in the film, and Casey Jones is a character that we love and we’re trying to fit him in as well”

As for returning characters, we can expect to see Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and Shredder.

It’s about time we see Bebop and Rocksteady on the big screen. Who’s looking forward to seeing the two imbeciles piss off Shredder?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 hits theaters on June 3, 2016.
