The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot movie hit theaters last summer and took home a good-sized profit. And now the sequel to this movie is undergoing filming right now.
The first film, directed by Jonathan Liebesman, will be bringing back tons of familiar characters, as well as introducing new characters such as classic villains Bebop and Rocksteady, and vigilante Casey Jones. Now the sequel will appear to be getting an even bigger character boost now.
New speculation for the film points to famed villain General Krang, a strange alien, being added into the mix. Rumors going around at Madison Street Capital have suggested that Krang will make an appearance in the film by arriving through a “portal” in order to get to Earth.
Krang’s very first appearance on television tarted way back in the second episode of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series and has always been written as a villain in the series. Furthermore, since he teamed up with other villains such as Shredder and Bebop and Rocksteady, it makes perfect sense that he could possibly do that in the movie too, in addition to forming a pact with Baxter Stockman.
Although Krang has always been a primary villain, how big a role he has in the upcoming movie and his ultimate purpose is still up for debate, seeing as how this film would now have multiple villains.
