Brian Tee Hints at Shredder’s Return in Potential TMNT Sequel

Thanks to the success of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows on home video, another TMNT sequel is beginning to look a lot more likely. With that in mind, perhaps it’s fitting that Brian Tee recently shared his thoughts about the potential for another Ninja Turtles movie during an interview. After playing the role of Shredder for just enough time to experience betrayal, Tee had a few things to say about the villain’s possible role in a third TMNT movie.

“I actually do think that Shredder is way cooler than Krang anyway, and his betrayal was definitely one of those things that we have to be like, ‘Really? Really dude?’

You know, as he betrayed me and he froze me in time, um, people get unfrozen, I feel, so just saying that there will definitely be a revenge of the Shredder, hopefully in a movie really really soon, so we’ll have to wait and see.”

Much like Pete Ploszek, it sounds like Brian Tee is very excited to find out whether or not he will have the opportunity to return for another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. That being said, something tells me that Shredder’s return in a sequel might not be as impressive as he’s expecting. After all, the role of Shredder in Out of the Shadows mimicked the original animated series in a lot of ways. If the filmmakers decide to continue trying to re-create the TMNT animated series in live action, Shredder could find himself acting as one of Krang’s henchmen!

Unfortunately, Paramount has yet to announce any plans for another TMNT movie. While there is a strong possibility that the studio will move forward with a sequel to Out of the Shadows, we simply don’t know when or if it will be revealed to the public. As of yet, it would appear that these details haven’t even been revealed to the actors involved with the franchise, so it may be a while before we get any definitive information about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3. Until then, it’s at least nice to hear that the actors are ready for more shellraising action!

What do you think? Will Brian Tee make an appearance as Shredder in TMNT 3? Will the movie get greenlit? Will Shredder get his revenge against Krang? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments section or on facebook/twitter!

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!
