For so long fans have been wondering exactly which role William Fichtner be acting in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 film. Fichtner recently put all the questions to bed in a recent interview with Huffington Post by revealing his character as The Shredder!


“I play Shredder. It is cool. It’s one of those things that came along where I thought, “Really? Let me think about this for a minute.” [Laughs] Then I was like, “Yeah, OK, this sounds like a journey.” I’m very glad that it worked out, I’m really glad that I’m doing it.”


Fichtner has a superb acting background and can definitely use his experience to move his audience, he especially can perform as a villain as he did in a number of bits. The only issue fans would have with William Fichtner as Shredder would be the characters Asian decent. Or some would question Fichtner’s fighting ability as an martial artist, because Master Shredder is recognized forocious fighter. Some would approve and others would not. Do you approve?
