Get ready for a brain with little tentacle arms to grace the screen in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows when it hits screens this year.
Speculation has been high that Krang, the warlord from Dimension X, would be appearing in the new TMNT film, and it has now been confirmed in an unconventional manner. Deep within a lengthy profile of Michael Bay by Rolling Stone, the film’s producer is mentioned as having a conversation with Pablo Helman, the sequel’s VFX supervisor. The article goes on to state that the two men had a video chat with Helman showing the latest design to Bay. Apparently Helman stated that ILM has “eliminated the tentacles,” which prompted Bay to reply, “He could have some tentacles. I just don’t want them coming out of the side. He looks like a stupid octopus.”
That seems like definite confirmation the film will add the evil dictator to an already crowded film that will feature the introductions of Baxter Stockman, Bebop, Rocksteady and Casey Jones.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows hits theaters on June 3.
