Producer Michael Bay has released the first photo of “Arrow” star Stephen Amell in costume as Casey Jones from Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.” Bay revealed the shot via Twitter on Friday morning.
The new image shows Amell with his face obscured by Jones’ signature hockey mask, sticking fairly close to the comics’ interpretation of the character — albeit without the long hair he’s been seen with in many iterations. The vigilante is also pictured carrying a hockey stick — one of many pieces of sports equipment the character has been known to utilize as a weapon. Jones is the primary love interest for April O’Neil (played by Megan Fox) in the “Turtles” franchise.
Joining Amell and Fox in the sequel are Will Arnett, Tyler Perry (Baxter Stockman), Brian Tee (Shredder), and Laura Linney. Dave Green is directing from a script by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec. Michael Bay is producing along with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2″ will bow in theaters on June 3, 2016.
