He was a shadowy ghost in the first movie  (after the fan backlash when it was leaked that William Fichtner was meant to play him) but now the sequel has put an identifiable face behind the steel face of The Shredder…

Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift and Wolverine star Brian Tee has joined the cast as Oroku Saki, joining the aforementioned Fichtner, Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Will Arnett as Vern Fenwick, along with newbies Stephen Amell as Casey Jones and Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman. David Green is set to direct from a script by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec.

Surely this will mean a bigger role for Shredder this time out and, with the inclusion of Bebop, Rocksteady and Casey Jones, we’re really hoping this one goes full out cartoon series crazy.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will hit cinemas on June 3rd, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
