As we anticipate another trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that reveals more of the story, characters and those Turtles, a batch of new images have arrived online, snapped from an upcoming book called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Visual History.
The most notable thing about these images is they provide our best look so far at the villainous Shredder (played by William Fichtner) and the Turtle's master, Splinter, voiced by Tony Shaloub. And while Splinter pretty much looks the way we expect Splinter to look, it's Shredder who's bulked up, added some crazy armor and transformed himself into a vicious-looking bad guy.
Check it, and tell us you're not afraid of this dude. Even his cape can kill you!
Of course it wouldn't be a TMNT movie without a showdown between Splinter and Shredder, which the previous trailer teased. You might not think an old rat can hold his own with that... thing above, but think again. Who do you think taught those Turtles how to fight?
Speaking of the Turtles, here's one image that shows off a bit more detail, like how the notoriously misunderstood Raphael is completely ripped.
"The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan."
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters on August 8. What do you think of the looks for Shredder and Splinter?
