Michael Bay reveals the big baddie in TMNT 2 we’ve been wanting to see!


Now, I’m going to be frank on this: I wasn’t a huge fan of Bay-hem’s take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. From every angle of every scene, you could practically see how much the film tries to be a good revamp of the original comic or cartoon series, but, inevitably watch as that vision falls into a Michael Bay ball of flame. Weird turtle designs, clunky plot development, an overabundant amount of product placement. Yeah, wasn’t a fan…of the first one. With that said, after everything I’ve seen so far of the latest installment of the tubular green machine quartet, I have to say: I’m super stoked! The film looks like it’s a fanboy’s wet dream, improvising all the things that made us jump over our brothers and sisters to see the cartoon series: from Casey Jones, their Party Wagon, Bebop and Rocksteady, and an even better looking Shredder. Now what else could make this even better? Well, hold on to your butts…


According to a lengthy interview with Rolling Stone, Bay, accompanied by visual-effects supervisor Pablo Helman in a video call, reveals that the latest villain to attempt to destroy the turtles, along with the rest of the world, is none other than the pink brain monster himself, Krang! In a conversation (lacking the Bayhem explosions, thank god), Bay and Helman discuss the latest rendering of the bubble gum giant, as Helman explains, “So we’ve eliminated the tentacles, is it too monster-ish?” “He could have some tentacles,” says Bay. “I just don’t want them coming out of the side. He looks like a stupid octopus.”


The film, already gaining ground with a lot of fans who lost hope in the franchise due to the first one, has become one of the anticipated films of 2016. With director Dave Green at the helm, TMNT 2 will showcase a bunch of new faces such as Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman, and Brian Tee as the latest Shredder. We can only hope that the film continues with its good fortune, and lands the right person to voice the evil Krang just right. C’mon Paramount, don’t let us down!
