In just a few short months, your favorite heroes in a half-shell will return in the highly-anticipated sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, in theaters June 3. While many are excited for the turtles' triumphant comeback, others are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the two iconic characters Bebop and Rocksteady (Gary Anthony Williams and Stephen Farrelly). Last week, we showed you individual character posters for each of these villains. Today, Comic Book Movie has uncovered a new one-sheet with brings both characters together, exhibiting their brute force.
Bebop and Rocksteady were not created for the original comic book, but debuted in the popular animated series to sell more action figures, where they quickly became fan favorites. BeBop and Rocksteady will start off as a punk thugs who serve as members of a ragtag street gang. After meeting the nefarious Shredder (Brian Tee), they mutate into hybrids of a warthog and rhinoceros, and become Shredder's enforcers. We'll have to wait and see how the Turtles handle these powerful enemies, who have much more brawn than brain.
