During Rolling Stone’s recent interview with director Michael Bay, the filmmaker took a video call from visual supervisors of ILM to go over a few ideas and concepts for both Transformers 5 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
Furthermore, one of Bay’s remarks is a major clue that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows would feature the live action debut of fan favorite villain Krang, with Bay stating that: “He could have some tentacles, I just don’t want them coming out of the side. He looks like a stupid octopus.”
Krang had been rumoured for some time to feature in this year’s sequel, and will be the first time the character has appeared in live-action form. You can check out concept art for him here.
UPDATE: We’ve got our first glimpse of Krang and the Technodrome thanks to some images of action figures for the sequel; check them out here
