Well, five minutes after posting the new Movie pics, I find this…
William Fichtner has been added onto the cast of the New Movie as a “Character with Iconic Stature”.
For those not familiar with the name, you’ve seen him in various movies and shows such as SEAL Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden, Entourage and The Dark Knight.
Considering his acting background, and the recent photos of a seemingly Para-Military style Foot Clan, we may have our Shredder. The Rumor Mill’s been grinding away at stories of a crazed Soldier who’s got the turtles in his sights, and this… may or may not cement that idea in some fans’ minds. I’m very curious to see how the whole origin story is going to play out, if this is the situation.
I want to see more info before I make a judgement, but the speed that things are coming out is awesome. We’ll be getting our answers soon enough…
If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s all here… we’ve finally caught glimpse of the new Logo, which looks Very nice, and we’ve been treated to peeks of April, some well-known co-workers, trampolines and Three of our Mo-Capped Turtles in a wicked bad situation. I just had to pull away from FCBD stuff to share this – It’s comin’ out of the woodwork!
So yet again, like a broken record, Tokka’s gonna beg you to exercise patience & WAIT just a tad longer – cuz as this pattern continuously shows .. the figures that do this rotation post ebay usually head over to the brick n’ mortar stores & online retailers like **Playmates’s Web Shop at much more reasonable prices than at online auction. Of coarse, it’s up to you .. depending on your situation & how desperate you are. Oi .. !!
Well, we’ve just gotten ourselves an update today, courtesy of JoBlo:
Last week, the first of the four NINJA TURTLES in the Michael Bay-produced reboot was cast, bringing in former Aquaman Alan Ritchson for the role of Raphael. Now, the other three turtles have filled their shells, with Pete Ploszek (Parks and Recreation) playing the leader, Leonardo, Jeremy Howard (Breaking Bad) taking on the bo-staff wielding Donatello, and Noel Fisher (BATTLE: LOS ANGELES) portraying the wise-cracking Michelangelo. All of the actors are new on the scene, which was probably a big consideration when the studio addressed the budgetary issues a while back, causing the film to be delayed. It makes perfect sense, really, especially when the actors will be virtually unrecognizeable as themselves anyway.
(Picture belongs to the JoBlo Network, with much appreciation! Now let’s see how long it takes for TMNT fans to start Turtlizing these guys’ faces…)
According to the article, the movie is slated to come out in June 6, 2014. Now we just have tto wait and find out about Splinter, Shredder, and possibly Casey Jones…
