Arrow joins Turtles 

Star of Arrow, Stephen Amell has been cast as Casey Jones in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. The character was previously played by Elias Koteas in the 1990 New Line adaptation.

I only made it half-way through the first episode of Arrow, before switching off. So I’m not too familiar with Amell’s work. 

The actor will join Megan Fox, who is reprising her role as April O’Neil, and Will Arnett  is returning as Vern. Plot details have yet to be revealed but fan-favourites Rocksteady and Bebop are rumored to be a part of it. 

I may well be in the minority here, but I didn’t hate the first movie. I found the back-story a little jarring, but overall I had a lot of fun with it. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release next year.
