It appears that “Arrow” star Stephen Amell will be playing the vigilante Casey Jones in the upcoming TMNT movie sequel. We already heard reports about Casey Jones being incorporated into the 2nd flick but this confirms it. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for a June 3, 2016 release date. Great news!
UPDATE: It appears that Baxter Stockman will also be making his debut in the sequel. There are several other tidbits of information mentioned in both articles on casting and some other star appearances.
Baxter is one of the great Mirage characters and I loved his role in the original comics and the 2003 cartoon. Hopefully the character traits of the movie Stockman resemble the comics/2k3 cartoon rather than Baxter in the 1987 Fred Wolf cartoon.
