The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel has found its Baxter Stockman. The role of the scientist will be played by none other then Tyler Perry. Brace yourselves, mousers are coming. It will be interesting to see if he stays human or undergoes his famous mutation into the humanoid fly (as seen front he original animated series above).

In addition to getting a big screen version of Stockman, as well as Rocksteady and Bebop, the nerd world rejoiced at the casting of Stephen Amell as Casey Jones.  Megan Fox and Will Arnett are also set to return to the sequel.

For those of you not familiar with Perry’s film and TV works, your life is probably better for it. No word yet on if he will portray Stockman as a stereotypical older black woman or if they will change the name of the movie to Tyler Perry’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Stay tuned to FTN for all your mutanty, ninja-y and turtle-y news.
