The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for over three decades now and there is without a doubt that they are one of the most recognizable characters in the world today. The longevity of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles means that almost anyone from any age knows or is familiar with the brand and the characters. From your 6-year old neighbour to your 60 year old grandfather that you often visit, you can expect them to know about the famed humanoid turtles. Every avid fan would be able to recognize the turtles from a mile away, recite their iconic names like a prayer and even describe the personalities of each. But if you have been living under a rock for the past three decades and don’t know who the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are, don’t you worry because the recently released trailer for the sequel to the 2014 film will definitely help you out.
In the trailer, you will see Michelangelo (Noel Fisher) introduce the members of his iconic team namely himself, Donatello (Jeremy Howard), Raphael (Alan Ritchson), and their leader Leonardo (Pete Ploszek), all four being named after famous renaissance artists.
But the question is really not about who the turtles are because even those who’re not fans of the show still know the names of the four main characters that is why they should be introducing the other casts instead.
Now that the cast seem to be growing in number, it can be quite difficult to stay on track with the cast. Of course, those who have watched the 2014 film would be familiar with April O’Neil (played by Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) and Splinter (Danny Woodburn/Tony Shalhoub). This new film will introduce the likes of Casey Jones (played by Arrows’ star, Stephen Amell), Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry), Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams), Rocksteady (Stephen Farrelly) and super villain Krang (Fred Armisen).
The reintroduction of the film’s main protagonist is evidence as to how the film will be focusing mainly on the crime fighting quartet as their comedy and their chemistry is what had worked the first time and focusing away from the human characters. All in all, people can’t wait until TMNT 2 hits the theatres this coming June
