Ever since the screenplay for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot leaked onto the Internet last year, the production team has tried everything in their power to keep fans excited about the project, despite reports of questionable elements. However, it seems that, at every turn, fans are increasingly frustrated with the reboot’s developments. Now the latest word from the film’s production seems to have sucked out all the badass out of the damn movie!
According to Geek Tyrant’s sources, the masked vigilante Casey Jones will not appear in the reboot. Instead, TMNT will feature a bigger role for Will Arnett’s Vernon Fenwick character. If Casey Jones won’t be in the movie, why even bother?
Casey Jones is the one of the most popular non-mutant characters in the entire TMNT mythology. In the 1990 live-action film, actor Elias Koteas and brought a messy grit and grime to the beloved character. Casey Jones is not only a masked vigilante, he’s also the Turtles’ connection to the outside human world and April O’Neil’s love interest.
