"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" Rumoured To Feature 'Krang' And Judith Hoag; Gary Anthony Williams To Play 'Bebop'

Cinema Blend is reporting the Turtley Awesome news that a source close to the production of Nickelodeon Movies, Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes' "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" has revealed that fan-favorite supervillain Krang will be making his live-action debut in "TMNT 2".

This source said that the production recently filmed a scene last week involving a number of extras and the character's arrival on Earth through a portal.

Krang was created for the 1980's animated "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" series, and is a warlord from another dimension, called Dimension X, who commanded a massive army. After losing his body, he came to Earth where he met Shredder. The Turtles' adversary teamed up with Krang and, by doing so, agreed to construct a new body for him in exchange for use of his high-tech base, known as the Technodrome.

Although Krang didn't appear in Nick and Paramount's first "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie in 2012, concept art of Krang, as well as Bebop and Rocksteady, revealed what he would've looked like if the filmmakers had decided to feature him.

Cinema Blend is also reporting the exciting news that Judith Hoag, who played April O'Neil in the 1990 "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, has been spotted on the New York-based set of the movie! Judith has also been hinting on Twitter that she may be in the movie!

Additionally, Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Gary Anthony Williams has joined the cast of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2", where he'll star as one of the franchise's longstanding villains, 'Bebop'! A mutated Warthog almost always paired off with a fellow mutant, 'Rocksteady', Bebop is a henchmen of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle" arch villain Shredder (and thus is a quasi-member of the Foot ninja clan.) In TMNT 2, he'll start off as a punk street thug member of a ragtag gang of misfits who acts as if he's intellectually superior, but isn't.

Williams joins Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Stephen Amell, Tyler Perry, Brian Tee and Laura Linney in Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures' sequel directed by David Green from a script by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec. Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing. The film is currently filming, and is set for release June 3, 2016. Williams has also appeared in "The Internship", "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" and "The Factory". He's repped by APA, Jordan Tilzer at Roar, and Ginsburg Daniels LLP.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" is currently filming in New York City and is scheduled for release in theaters on June 3, 2016.
