10 Characters Who Need To Be In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2
When 1990's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a hit, it meant that New Line Cinema could confidently move forward with a sequel, though they'd have to keep to that ground-level aesthetic due to budgetary concerns and effects limitations. Not so with the new version of the story: the latest $65-million opening for Jonathan Liebesman's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles means that a sequel can open the floodgates for the wild, wacky and colorful extended universe of the shelled warriors. Heck, it wouldn't be a surprise if Paramount was currently kicking around ideas for mutant spinoff movies coming from the world of the Turtles.
Taking into account the previous four films, the long-running comic and the animated series, we decided to dig up 10 characters who could conceivably pop up in the newest Turtles installment. Who could the heroes fight? Who would join their side? Who's going to get doused with Ooze, and who's going to open the portal to Dimension X? Here are ten candidates.
Casey JonesIn the early days of the Ninja Turtles, Kevin Eastman figured that audiences just wouldn't fully get that the characters were spoofs of the recent grim 'n' gritty trend in comic books. Enter Casey Jones, a vigilante who spoke like the Punisher and dressed like Jason Voorhees, who wore hockey gear and patrolled city streets, looking for crime. Jones has already been rumored to be of interest for the sequel, the fourth Turtles film to feature the character, who was played by Elias Koteas in the original trilogy. In some Turtles stories, he's a love interest of April O'Neil, so this is a chance to cast someone really pretty but with a slightly psycho side. Zac Efron?
