Your First Look at the Turtles of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Sort of)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon


Most of you probably already know by now that the ninja turtles that will be showing up in Jonathan Liebesman’s currently in-production reboot “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” will be of the mo-cap variety, similar to how Joss Whedon did the aliens in “The Avengers” and James Cameron pulled off the Na’vi in “Avatar”.

So it shouldn’t as much of a surprise to you to see actors in mo-cap suits on the set of Liebesman’s movie, which you can see before. Of course, what the “turtles” are doing/situation may be a tad SPOILERIFIC, so of course take a gander at the set images below at your own risk.

Also, Deadline reports that professional bad guy William Fichtner has joined the cast of “TMNT”. The trade doesn’t know what role Finchtner will be playing, only that it’s “a lead with iconic stature in the Turtles’ mythology”.

Shredder? Krang? Casey Jones? Nah, it can’t possibly be Casey Jones. Just look at that face. Fichtner was born to play bad guys. Plus, he’s way too old for Casey Jones, who would have to be about Megan Fox’s age. He is her love interest, after all.

The turtles rise next year June 6, 2014.
