*SPOILER ALERT* Something was recently shot that will serve as an EASTER EGG for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2. If you’d like to be surprised by this bit of crossover fan service, go away!
Looks like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles producer Michael Bay wants to have some fun with the fact that he also produces the Transformers franchise. A few days ago, while filming a sequence that takes place at a Halloween parade in New York City, the filmmakers inserted a not-so-subtle wink/homage/reference to the colossal robot car series.
Check it out below:
As you can see, someone in a little yellow car costume rolls up on Michelangelo, and then transforms into Bumblebee. This bit of fan service is capped off by a quick high-five between the two characters. Between stuff like this, and the bringing in of characters like Bebop, Rocksteady, Casey Jones, and the rumored inclusion of Krang, it’s clear that the filmmakers want this sequel to be very fanboy-friendly.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set to come out on June 3, 2016.
