Now we have our first look at the emerald archer turned hockey mask wearing vigilante.
Producer Michael Bay revealed the photo on his Flickr account:
Amell has abandoned the long hair you might be used to seeing on Jones but otherwise the photo gives a faithful depiction. His roughed up hockey mask looks particularly freaky and he’s carrying a hockey stick. His street clothes are nonchalant and effortless.
Jones has always been seen as a violent and erratic character, but a good guy nonetheless, and ally to the turtles.
We think he looks spot-on.
While the first film may not have performed well critically, the sequel seems to be setting its sights higher. With a possible inclusion of Bebop and Rocksteady, Brian Tee as Shredder, and Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman, it looks like the cast and crew have a solid path for this film.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set to be directed by David Green and hit theaters on June 3, 2016.
