The Turtles Have a Crisis of Faith In the New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Trailer

It’s a sequel superhero movie—what else would Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 be about if not the heroes doubting their ability to work together and be heroes, right?


The new TNMT 2 trailer has a few fresh moments beyond what we saw in the first one and the Superbowl TV spot. We get to see a little more of Stephen Amell’s Casey Jones in action, and we get to see the transformation of Bebop and Rocksteady from humans into mutant animals.

It’s the transformation that prompts one of the two moments of doubt for the half-shelled heroes—some of whom, like Raphael, suddenly want to use the mysterious purple ooze to turn themselves into humans rather than... back to turtles? Also, the team is in danger of falling apart and all that jazz! Like I said, it’s a sequel to a superhero movie, there has to be that moment of doubt, regardless of how little it makes sense.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows drops in theaters June 3rd.

Is it acceptable to consider watching this purely for the Amell?
