Bebop & Rocksteady

Just after hearing that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 would be directed by David Green of Earth to Echo, instead of bringing the first film's director Jonathan Liebesman back, new details on the sequel have emerged that should get longtime fans of the characters excited, or at least hopeful. Omelete (via Collider) has confirmed with producer Andrew Form that villains Rocksteady and Bebop will finally make it to the big screen. That explains why that leaked concept art we featured earlier this year was taken down by Paramount Pictures, since they still might use those designs. And they won't be the only new/old characters.

Form also says they're trying to figure out a way for Casey Jones to be involved as well. There's still no details on the story of the sequel, but if Rocksteady and Bebop are going to get involved, things could get a little more weird. Leaked concept art also included Krang and his exo-suit, so maybe Shredder, who will be back as a villain, has a new ally in the fight against the heroes in a half-shell. As for other returning characters, April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and Vernon Fenwick (Will Arnett) will be back along with Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. Can the sequel redeem the awful new origin story? We'll see.

    If they include Krang and his suit I'll give in, I think. B&R isn't quite enough.
