It was just under four weeks ago that we learned Stephen Amell would be taking on the highly-anticipated fan-favorite role of Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. The sequel is now shooting on the streets of New York, and we get our first look at the popular Arrow actor running through scenes in the middle of a busy intersection. He doesn't have his iconic hockey mask here, but he is seen reaching for an all-too familiar weapon. Yes, he does have his hockey stick!
Along with these first look images of Stephen Amell, we also get our first look at Megan Fox, who returns to reprise her role as April O'Neil from last summer's breakout hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which proved to be a bigger success at the box office than predicted. She no longer has on her signature yellow jacket, instead trading it in for something a little darker. Maybe it's a hint at the sequel's grittier tone this time around? One thing is for certain, she'll still be running a lot.
We also get a look at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 logo (if you squint), which really isn't any different than the first movie. The sequel is directed by Dave Green, who made a name for himself with the well-received family friendly sci-fi adventure Earth to Echo last summer. Will Arnett and William Fichtner will return along side new cast members Tyler Perry and supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. Shredder has been recast, with Brian Tee now taking over the role. And fan-favorite villains BeBop and Rocksteady will be making their debut appearance alongside Casey Jones as well, though they have yet to be cast. Our first look at them will probably arrive courtesy of mo-cap photos. For now, take a look as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 comes together in the Big Apple.
