Baxter Stockman is a villain known to fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and animated series. Now it looks like we’ll finally get to see him on the big screen in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. According to Variety, Tyler Perry is going to play the scientist.

In the ’80s cartoon, Baxter Stockman was a white scientist who became a fly, being heavily inspired by the Fly film starring Jeff Goldblum. Will we get to see this version where he turns into a fly? In the original Mirage comics and the 2012 animated series, the doctor is African-American. Well, let’s hope the one thing we can see are the Mousers he creates. They are deadly robots capable of munching through objects and walls.

The film will star Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and Stephen Amell (Arrow) as Casey Jones.

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