When “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows” returns to the big screen later this year, the Ninja Turtles aren’t the only mutants running around New York City. It was previously announced that Bebop and Rocksteady will appear in TMNT2.
Just like how the heroes in a half-shell were once normal reptiles, Bebop and Rocksteady were originally humans, and now we might get an idea of how their transformation to freaky humanoids will transpire.
Ever since they made their debut in the 1980s comic books, Bebop and Rocksteady have been among the more popular fan-favourite characters from the TMNT cartoon. Now, these 2 thugs are finally getting their cinematic debut and Paramount has also released a fresh pair of character posters for “Out of the Shadows” featuring the fully-transformed Bebop and Rocksteady.
First up, we have Bebop who is played by Gary Anthony Williams. The humanoid warthog is looking mighty fine with his fur well-groomed, the tusks looking sharp, and he’s more than ready for battle. We also love that he’s still rocking the purple mohawk and sunglasses even in his mutated form.
Next up is Rocksteady who is played by WWE star Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly. Unlike his buddy Bebop, Rocksteady is no longer sporting his red hair. With a face like that, skin that tough and a horn that big, keeping his hair wouldn’t make a difference for the giant rhino man anyway. If Rocksteady didn’t look badass enough, check out his weapon of choice – a baseball bat covered with sharp nails.
Unfortunately for the duo, while their power did increase, they remained just as dumb as before. They will be recruited by Shredder to do his dirty work. Though they’re not the smartest adversaries for our beloved reptillian martial artists, as pure muscle, these criminals are still going to give the Ninja Turtles a lot of trouble.
In addition to the Bebop and Rocksteady character posters, we also have a limited edition poster by Gallery1988 artist Dave Quiggle showing the Turtles and their newly improved Turtle Van.
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows” comes out on 3rd June 2016
