Anyone who saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will know that Shredder survived the third act battle. As a result, the character will be back for the sequel, which is currently filming. However, there will ne a new actor under the mechanized samurai armor to torment our heroes. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2″ has cast Brian Tee (“The Wolverine”) as iconic villain Shredder, Variety has learned exclusively.” If the actor looks familiar it’s because he will feature in the upcoming Jurassic World. In addition, he’s also appeared in the likes of Grimm and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. Casting a higher profile actor suggest to me, that Shredder will play a much larger role in the sequel, rather then being relegated to the shadows, except for the final battle. Also, casting an Asian actor from the get go will please fans, instead of retroactively doing so in the first film after fan complaints during filming. The film is due out in theaters next summer.
