Despite the disappointing first installment, hope seems to still be alive for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows, which continues the franchise from where it left off in the 2014 reboot. Some of that might have to do with the new creative talent behind-the-scenes, and another part of that might have to do with the inclusion of some iconic characters from the TMNT world. Most specifically in Stephen Amell’s Casey Jones.
Following the release of the initial teaser trailer several months ago, as well as some exciting new announcements since, a new trailer tease has been unveiled for the film as well, announcing the newest theatrical trailer’s release on Monday, April 11th.
Check out the teaser below:
Growing up as a Turtles fan, I think I can say fairly certainly that this already looks much better than the original film. It doesn’t seem to be taking itself nearly as seriously, and hopefully, it lets the Turtles take the front stage, rather than trying to focus too much on the human characters like its predecessor, because despite the controversial designs – the Turtles themselves have at least maintained the same spirit and heart of the source material and original films.
So here’s to hoping the new director, Earth to Echo‘s David Green is able to recapture the Turtles magic that was very clearly missing from the 2014 installment.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows is set to hit theatres on June 3rd.
