    Damn, Marvel just seem to be doing everything right at the moment. Even the Inhumans news is exciting me.

    DC, however – and this is despite being a much bigger DC comic book fan than I am Marvel – drain me of joy with each further bit of news they release.

    I really hope they explore other TMNT characters in the sequel. There are loads of other characters other than Shredder!
