For his half, Rowe is happy to convey Shredder to the desk after holding him out of this primary film, telling us, “Shredder is so cool. I am unable to wait to introduce that character and determine that character and design that character and determine how the digital camera’s going to maneuver for that character.” Since Shredder has lengthy been the archnemesis of the turtles, you possibly can wager he’ll have a badass introduction within the follow-up. And contemplating the change in Splinter’s origin story, there’s loads of room to refresh his place in “TMNT” lore as properly.
Plus, let’s not overlook that there is nonetheless a complete ensemble of mutants on the market alongside the turtles now. However may any of them find yourself turning again into villains? In spite of everything, Bebop and Rocksteady have historically been Shredder’s henchman. We requested Rowe if that is one thing they’ve thought of for the sequel. The filmmaker stated:
“We’re unsure but. We’re very early, nevertheless it’s like, we forged all these nice comedic performers in these roles and we barely acquired to scratch the floor of utilizing them on this movie. I need to see a complete scene between Bebop and Rocksteady. I need to have a complete scene with Wingnut and Donnie speaking about anime. I need to spend time with every of those characters, and I feel the problem might be, how will we do this with out taking an excessive amount of highlight away from the Turtles within the movie and in addition not making one thing that feels episodic, making one thing that is a well-oiled machine that does proper by all the characters?”
Possibly Superfly may go the other route and has the potential to change into one other ally of the turtles. That is one thing we’re additionally desperate to see within the eventual sequel, and we will not wait to see the way it seems.
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” is in theaters now.
