The latest trailer for the second "TMNT" feature, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”, is set to excite fans with a first glimpse at supervillain Krang and his new voice actor, Brad Garrett. Garrett, best known for his role as Robert on ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ and the voice of Bloat the blowfish in ‘Finding Nemo’, will be voicing the eglomaniac, in contrast to earlier reports from this years WonderCon that former "Saturday Night Live" comedian Fred Armisen would be donning the role. With Armisen now unable to perform due to scheudling issues, Garrett has stepped up to give life to one of TMNT’s most notorious villains.
The second film in the TMNT franchise is set to introduce a range of fan-favourites who were absent from the previous film, notably the dim-witted goons Bebop and Rocksteady, along with super-villain, Krang. Banished from his home planet, Krang intends to take over planet Earth, armed with his mighty technodrome and a human-shaped exosuit.
Krang made his first appearance in the 1988 ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures’ comic, gaining further popularity in '90s TV series, where he was voiced by Pat Fraley. This years film will see Kang in his first “real-life”, CG-animated form that has the potential to be as unsettlingly gruesome as it is endearing.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" is the sequel to the 2014 hit film "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." The film is based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman and is directed by David Green ("Earth to Echo").
