TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2 Updates, Set Photos, And More!

The following are a collection of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 casting updates, a bunch more set photos that reveal some things and then some, and more!

Cinemablend reckon Krang will be causing problems for Raph, Leo, Donny and Mikey in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. The sequel is still shooting in New York, and according to the site a scene was recently filmed "involving a number of extras and the character's arrival on Earth through a portal of some sort." Krang actually first debuted in the original animated series back in the '80s but has since gone on to be a mainstay in TMNT canon. He's usually depicted as an uneasy ally of Shredder (Brian Tee), and provides him and his cronies with the alien tech they need to defeat the Turtles.

It looks like Karai will have a larger role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, as Deadline report that the character has been recast, with Brittany Ishibashi replacing Minae Noji. Karai's origins are never alluded to in the first movie, but there have been several variations of them over the years. In classic TMNT lore she's depicted as being either the daughter or granddaughter of Shredder, but in the new animated series for example, she's is actually Splinter's daughter, who's stolen and raised by Shredder to believe that the Turtles' sensei is the one responsible for the death of her mother.

Ishibashi most recently appeared in TV shows such as Grace And Frankie, Bones and Emily Owens, M.D., as well as features Everything Before Us and The Harvesting.

Megan Fox (Transformers) and Stephen Amell (Arrow) were spotted filming scenes for Teenage Mutant  Ninja Turtles 2 late last night in New York.

The vigilante 'Casey Jones' (Amell) is usually sporting a goalie's mask and intrepid Channel 6 News reporter 'April O'Neil' is usually wearing a yellow jacket, but in order to sneak into the headquarters (One Police Plaza) of the New York police department they wore dark clothes and matching baseball caps.

Check out a video with Fox and Amell and a photo of Will Arnett ('Vernon Fenwick') who was also on hand for filming.

Below you can get your first look at Brian Tee as our new Shredder (sans helmet), and Brittany Ishibashi as Karai as they prepare to shoot a scene for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. In TMNT lore, Karai is usually portrayed as either Shredder's daughter or granddaughter, but we're not sure if that'll be the case here as no mention was made of it in the first movie. There's also a snap of (presumably) a masked-up member of the Foot Clan.

Some more images from the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 have found their way online, and they give us our first look at Shredder's fan-favourite henchman... before they're turned into a humanoid warthog and rhino that is. As you can see, that's Gary Anthony Williams with a pink mohawk as Bebop, and engaging him in sure-to-be stimulating conversation is WWE superstar Sheamus (real name Stephen Farrelly) as Rocksteady. We also have better shots of Brian Tee as Shredder and Brittany Ishibashi as Karai.

We've had an official image of the Arrow actor in his Casey Jones hockey mask, and now some new BTS pics provide another look at him as he takes on the Turtles.

These appear to be close-up shots from a scene that was filmed a couple of weeks back, which seemed to feature the first meeting between fan-favourite vigilante Casey Jones and the Turtles. Things got a little heated if Raph's sai sticking out of that metal is anything to go by! We also have some more pics from the scene in which April (Megan Fox) meets Vern (Will Arnett) and his date Alessandra Ambrosio (Alessandra Ambrosio).

Lastly, Megan Fox has returned yet again on set with the questionable schoolgirl outfit. Who knows how this will play out in TMNT 2 and why it has to be worn is probably the more asked question out of the two.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2″ will hit theaters on June 3, 2016 and stars Megan Fox (April O’Neil), Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick), Stephen Amell (Casey Jones), Brian Tee (Shredder), Tyler Perry (Baxter Stockman), Laura Linney, Gary Anthony Williams (Bebop), Brittany Ishibashi (Karai) and Stephen Farrelly (Rocksteady) in the Paramount sequel. Michael Bay will once again produce with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. David Green is set to direct from a script by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec.
