Complaints about the sanctity of your childhood fell on deaf ears when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit theaters last year. Despite the protests of some, the film still went on to gross nearly half-a-billion dollars worldwide. With a cash haul like that under its belt, the studio would certainly demand a sequel, which is now currently in production. Producer Michael Bay — yes, I know — shared over Twitter the first look of Arrow‘s Stephen Amell as Casey Jones and, well, I’m not sure this is going to steal the hearts of many skeptics. The mask looks like a cross between General Grievous from the Star Wars prequels and Jigsaw from Saw. Seriously, what Slipknot concert did Casey Jones just leave? Amell will be joined by returning stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett and new stars Brian Tee and Tyler Perry. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is directed by Dave Green and will open on June 3rd, 2016.
