WWE's Sheamus to play TMNT Villain

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie 2014

WWE superstar spotted on set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

Shooting is underway for the next installment to the TMNT franchise and rumours regarding the cast and characters are rife.

This week may have shed some more light on the cast though as WWE Superstar Sheamus has been spotted on set, dressed in what has been described as a "Punk Rock" inspired outfit, leading to rumours that he could be playing Villain Rocksteady.

As fans of the '90s cartoon series will know Rocksteady is one half of the slightly comical double act Be-Bop and Rocksteady, Henchmen for the evil Shredder. Now in the cartoon Be-Bop, who it has already been announced will be played by Gary Anthony Williams (The Internship, Harold & Kumar, Undercover Brother), was an African American man with a purple Mohawk that was tuned into a Mutated Warthog whilst Rocksteady was a Caucasian man who was turned into a mutant Rhino.

As leaked images show it seems as though we will be seeing the characters in their original human forms before their mutation.

Sheamus and Williams will be joined in the cast by Brian Tee (The Wolverine, Goldmember, Tokyo Drift) as Shredder, Tyler Perry (For Better or Worse, Temptation, Diary of a Mad Black Woman) as Baxter Stockman, Megan Fox (Transformers, TMNT, Jennifer's Body) as April O'Neil, Will Arnett (Arrested Development, Blades of Glory, 30 Rock) as Vernon Fenwick, William Fichtner (The Dark Knight, Black Hawk Down, Armageddon) as Eric Sacks and many more.

TMNT 2 will be directed by Dave Green (Earth to Echo, Meltdown, Zombie Roadkill) and is scheduled for release on the 03rd June 2016
