Michael Bay Reveals ‘TMNT 2’ Vehicles

By April 26, 2015

Last year, producer Michael Bay helped to release a new incarnation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a film that became commercially successful enough to warrant a sequel releasing next year. Now, Bay has given fans a sneak peek at some of the vehicles that will be popping up in the new entry.

Releasing new images on Twitter, Bay showed two vehicles that will likely be front and center in the as-yet untitled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: the Turtles’ “party wagon,” as well as a Polaris Slingshot. See the released images below.




Most fans who were tuned into the 1980s animated series “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” likely remember that the van, which belonged to Baxter Stockman, the scientist who was later recruited by the Shredder to work against the interest of the Turtles. The van was later “repossessed” by the team and used as their primary mode of transportation across New York, while also serving as something of a mobile base of operations — with some modifications from Donatello, of course. The design of the van looks to be in line with the aesthetic established by that show and some of the van’s subsequent appearances, and it’s pretty cool to see the new movie include it in it’s story.

The Polaris Slingshot’s appearance could mean anything. The sleek three-wheeled motorcycle was introduced last year and retails for around $20,000. It seems unlikely that this will be the Turtles’ conveyance, but it might be fitting for another vigilante like Casey Jones, or perhaps the film’s villain.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will feature the returns of Megan Fox and Will Arnett as April O’Neil and Vern Fenwick, respectively, with Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Johnny Knoxville, and Jeremy Howard all returning to voice the Turtles. Tyler Perry was recently cast as Baxter Stockman, and fan-favorite characters Bebop and Rocksteady will also be appearing. The film is shooting now, and will hit theaters on June 3rd, 2016.
