Following the set photos we posted yesterday, the Daily Mail has managed to get a hold of even more photos from the set of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 which confirm that none other than WWE superstar Sheamus has joined the cast as the villain Rocksteady. You can click the link above to see him with Gary Anthony Williams as his counterpart, Bebop, on the set of the film.
Seamus confirmed the casting last night via an image on Twitter with Williams as well as the film’s new Shredder, Brian Tee, and Tee’s wife, Mirelly Taylor. You can view that tweet below.
Megan Fox and Will Arnett lead the cast for the film that also includes William Fichtner as Eric Sacks and newcomers Tyler Perry as scientist Baxter Stockman, and Stephen Amell as the sports-themed vigilante Casey Jones. Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, and Noel Fisher will reprise their roles as Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo (Johnny Knoxville did the voice), and Michelangelo.
The original film, which grossed more than $485 million at the worldwide box office, also starred Danny Woodburn and Tony Shalhoub.
Directed by Earth to Echo‘s David Green, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release on June 3, 2016.
