Continuing the gradual trickling out of images from the currently shooting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, producer Michael Bay yesterday tweeted out a set pic that gives fans their first glimpse at a classic TMNT character.
In the comics, Jones is an apartment building handyman who turns vigilante and cobbles together his costume and tools from equipment lying around in his apartment. Weapons include clubs, crowbars, golf clubs and hockey sticks, which he carries with him in a modified golf bag. Arrow star Stephen Amell’s version of the character is a bit different from the comics, where Jones wears what amounts to thrift store gym clothes and sports long, shaggy black hair.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 hits theaters June 3, 2016. Megan Fox, William Fichtner, and all four of the actors portraying the turtles return, joined by Amell, and Tyler Perry as evil scientist Baxter Stockman. Dave Green is directing from a script by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, who also return to produce. From Platinum Dunes and Nickelodeon, Paramount is distributing.
