Mark Wahlberg Gets a Flashy New Ride in Photo from Set of 'Ted 2'
Some casting information has been surfacing over the past week regarding the comedy sequel Ted 2, and that's mostly because the comedy sequel is currently in production over in Boston right now. However, we've yet to see any photos from the set and no plot details have surfaced at all (beyond Morgan Freeman playing a successful civil rights lawyer who helps Ted with some legal trouble). But now we get a hint of what could be going on in the film set for release next summer as star Mark Wahlberg posted a photo from the set on Twitter for everyone to see. Not only does he show off his ripped arms, but it seems his character John Bennett also has a slick new ride inspired by his hero and wedding officiator, Flash Gordon.
Here's the photo Mark Wahlberg posted from the set of Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2 on Twitter:

Notice in the photo that the Flash Gordon motorcycle appears to be a gift, and it appears to be in front of a church. Take that into account with the pink ribbons on the stair rails and the fact that Wahlberg is wearing tuxedo pants, this seems be at a wedding. The question is, when does this wedding take place and with who? At the end of the first film, Wahlberg ended up marrying Mila Kunis with Sam Jones presiding over their marriage, so this could be an early recap scene to set the stage for what follows. Or maybe the sequel just picks up immediately after the events of the first film.
However, we've also heard that Kunis either isn't in the film or only has a small role. And if Amanda Seyfried is the new female lead, we're wondering whether or not Kunis and Wahlberg are still together in the sequel. Maybe this scene starts an inevitable failure of their marriage allowing Wahlberg's story to continue and that's how he meets Seyfried. That would seem to betray everything about the first film and how Kunis brought Ted back to life, but this isn't exactly a comedy that is a slave to logic or rules. Maybe this is a spoiler that Seyfriend and Wahlberg end up getting married. Ted 2 arrives on June 26th, 2015.
