Kevin Eastman Makes Cameo Appearance in Out of the Shadows

Embargoes are a pain in the butt, dudes. Although we can’t officially provide our review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows until tomorrow, we will be able to share some interesting information about the film. As the title indicates, you can expect the co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to make an appearance in this latest TMNT movie.

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time that he has made such an appearance, as both he and Peter Laird also showed up in the very first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie in 1990. Both creators were a little more difficult to spot back then, so you’ll be happy to know that it’s hard to miss his cameo in this one.

Before anyone gets concerned about spoilers, it’s important to note that this is a minor role and even IMDb has it listed in the credits. I won’t be telling you much here that hasn’t already been shared by the studio in one way or another, so there’s no need to be worried about this spoiling the film in any way. With that said, make sure to be on the lookout for this cameo appearance very early on in the film, because you might miss it if you’re too busy getting popcorn.

So what is Kevin Eastman’s role in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows? He plays a pizza delivery dude, of course.

I really loved this little nod to the co-creator, as it was simple and small enough that it didn’t necessarily interfere with the rest of the film. It reminded me a bit of Stan Lee’s appearances in Marvel movies, because it wasn’t overstated and there was simply an implicit understanding from the fans that they had just seen the co-creator on screen.

Some fans will see this scene and think “wait a minute, was that who I think it was?” The answer is yes. Keep an eye out for Kevin Eastman when you go to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows this weekend!

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
