If you weren’t a fan of last year’s Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, you’re probably not too pumped to hear that it made enough money back to get a sequel due in 2016. Megan Fox will for sure be returning as April O’Neil, and Will Arnett will be back as well, but today Variety has reported that Arrow’s Stephen Amell will be in the film as none other than Casey Jones.
Casey is one of the few human allies other than April to know about the Ninja Turtles. In the original TMNT films from the 90s, he was played by Elias Koteas. He eventually becomes a love interest for April and bonds (and clashes) with Raphael. Variety reports that out of the half dozen actors that auditioned over the weekend, he had the best chemistry with Megan Fox. However, given the fact that April Fools Day is tomorrow, it’s extremely likely that this is a prank. So take this with a grain of salt.
But if this does end up being true, how does it make you feel? Are you hoping he’ll say “You have failed this city!” at least once? Let us know in the comments below.
