With production set to begin on the sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, news is coming almost daily about casting and potential plot lines. We found out a few weeks ago that Casey Jones had been cast for the film, and that Bebop and Rocksteady would be in the film as well. Today, Variety is reporting that Tyler Perry will bring a key character to life in Baxter Stockman.
In the comics and animated series, Stockman is an African American scientist who is responsible for creating, among other things, the turtle-hunting Mousers.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set to hit theaters on June 3rd, 2016 and will star Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Will Arnett as Vern Fenwick, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Johnny Knoxville, Jeremy Howard, Danny Woodburn, Tony Shalhoub, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Stephen Amell.
