Oliver Queen Proves He Can Cowabunga with the Turtles

At the beginning of the month, we reported that Stephen Amell of Arrow fame will be playing Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

Now we have our first look at the emerald archer turned hockey mask wearing vigilante.

Producer Michael Bay revealed the photo on his Flickr account:


Amell has abandoned the long hair you might be used to seeing on Jones but otherwise the photo gives a faithful depiction. His roughed up hockey mask looks particularly freaky and he’s carrying a hockey stick. His street clothes are nonchalant and effortless.

Jones has always been seen as a violent and erratic character, but a good guy nonetheless, and ally to the turtles.

We think he looks spot-on.

While the first film may not have performed well critically, the sequel seems to be setting its sights higher. With a possible inclusion of Bebop and Rocksteady, Brian Tee as Shredder, and Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman, it looks like the cast and crew have a solid path for this film.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set to be directed by David Green and hit theaters on June 3, 2016.

What do you think of Stephen Amell’s look as Casey Jones? Do you think he’s a good choice? Sound off in the comments!
