WATCH: New trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem! Is spinoff animated show coming too?

June 8th, 2023 by Marc Comments

While the Spider-verse comparisons are pretty obvious, it’s hard to argue that the new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem doesn’t look like a lot of fun.

And with a cast that includes Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr, Hannibal Buress, Rose Byrne, John Cena, Jackie Chan, Giancarlo Esposito, Paul Rudd and Maya Rudolph, it’s hard to argue that the voice talent isn’t there and the animation, well, it looks great!

So great that, not only have we a new trailer, but word is that Paramount is so excited about the movie, that they have already started developing a new TV series that will pick up where it leaves off.

FIRST LOOK: IDW give us a crossover we didn’t know we needed: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Stranger Things

The series, according to the rumours, is set for 2024 and this will be as well as the proposed – but not connected – TMNT animated series focusing on the best villains in the Turtles world; that series is still reportedly due sometime this year but there’s been very little news about that one.

And, if you’re not excited enough by this news, it seems the Mutant Mayhem movie will be scored by The Social Network and Watchmen’s Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross! That’s a reason to be excited on its own!

After years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts. Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.

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….
