Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Casting News, Spoilers: TMNT Half Shell Finishes Shooting; Sci-Fi Theme Continues As TV And Merchandise Catch Up; Will General Krang Return Via CGi

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 News, Spoilers: Filming is done on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell and reports say the film will include new characters who are popular in the comics. Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio is reportedly going to be included in the lineup for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."

According to reports TMNT2 will explore the origins of the ninja turtles and Half Shell will take a look at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle's universe.

But the big news is that Half Shell will see the return of the alien villain General Krang. According to rumors, General Krang may be rendered in CGI. General Krang was a commanding warlord in Dimension X in the comics. Krang was exiled to Earth and hooked up with the Shredder.

Not many details about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Half Shell have been released, but Master Herald reported that William Fichtner, who portrays the villain Dr. Eric Sacks, said the sequel will explore the origins of the turtles.

The new incarnation of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" was met with some skepticism and fans say the TV show doesn't live up to the original series, but the rebooted series has been successful. A recent episode continued the science fiction theme and the writers are reportedly going to go further with this.

Fans noticed a reference to Star Trek and other popular science fiction.

"It's going to be massive with a toy and action figure range to complement the release. We are very excited at developing the movie franchise with all new product and retail activations."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic writers Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman, and Bobby Curnow promise to deliver something different and brought on new artist Ken Garing of "Planetoid" for the next few issues.
