Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Casts New Shredder

The Ninja Turtles will be fighting a new Shredder in the sequel – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.  Brian Tee will carry the Herumetto (Japanese for helmet) and lead the Foot Clan this time. Tee (38) is a Korean/Japanese American actor born in Okinawa, Japan and now resides  in  sunny California.

This casting decision points in the direction of a non-robotic Shredder suit, because Brian Tee is has shown his martial arts on the big screen before. We bet every TMNT fan would like to see an old school fight between Master Shredder vs. the Ninja Turtles. Some fans predict the Ninja Turtles might be toned down in size for the sequel.

Director Dave Green has a lot on his plate as fans still await the decision for Bebop & Rocksteady casting decisions. Brian Tee joins Tyler Perry (Baxter Stockman),  and Stephen Amell (Casey Jones) for TMNT 2.

Our regards go out to Tohoru Masamune, the original Shredder from the 2014 reboot.
