In addition to the roster of new characters being added to the sequel to the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot, such as Casey Jones, Bebop, Rocksteady, Baxter Stockman, and a new actor for The Shredder, a handful of concept images were recently leaked that indicated Krang may also play a role in the film.
While Krang made his first animated appearance in the second episode of the ’80s cartoon, his nature has varied depending on the particular continuity a viewer examines. While some versions of the character place him as the ruler of another dimension with planetary conquest as a motivation, other versions have simply declared that Krang is one member of an entire race capable of interdimensional travel.
Given how The Shredder was the main antagonist of the first film, it makes sense that the second film will aim for a villain with a grander scope thinks FreedomPop. While the medium by which this nefarious alien will make his appearance, between mo-cap technology, live action practical effects, or entirely generated by computer, is yet to be determined, the film is set for release in June of next year.
