TMNT Sequel Planned, Could We See Shredder?

Just 3 weeks before the film opens, TMNT director Kevin Munroe discussed in an exclusive interview with FirstShowing.net at WonderCon in San Francisco the possibilities of sequels, including the return of Shredder to the long-running Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. A new set of mythological creatures arrives, along with the villain Karai in the upcoming CGI film due out in just a few weeks. There has been continual criticism for the lack of Shredder, but that concern may finally be remedied! Read on for what Munroe had to say in regards to sequels and possibly a return of Shredder.
Take this as a spoiler or not, but when asked if the film sets up a sequel at the end, Munroe replied:
"Yea, a sequel big time. It's a very not-so-subtle nod at the end.
I'd love it to happen, I wish it was my decision. I do have a deal to do a second one, we'll just wait and see if it happens. I think it's going to depend, it's just all box office at this point."
And when asked about the possibility of seeing Shredder return in a sequel, he responded with:
"Yea, it'd nice, it'd be really cool. As a fan I'd love that."
"Because we now have these sort of better Shredder stories of how to bring Shredder back. But now if it works out well, and Karai coming to New York, that's a setup for a really good volume in The Turtes in the comics as well, it could work out to a really cool sequel."
TMNT arrives in theaters on March 23rd - go see it, support the Turtles and CGI!
The full interview will be coming early next week, but stay tuned on FS.net for more exclusive news and details from WonderCon.
