Michael Bay Reveals 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Casey Jones

Meet Stephen Amell's other comic book alter ego.

Fans of the CW's Arrow know Stephen Amell as one comic book vigilante, but Michael Bay sees him differently, as the first image of the actor playing Casey Jones in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel demonstrates.

Having produced the franchise's first pic, Bay is now producing the second TMNT feature, with David Green directing. In addition to returning stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett and William Fichtner, Amell joins the cast to play Casey Jones, a hockey mask-wearing vigilante whose sanity is somewhat in doubt.

The character, created by Kevin Eastman, first appeared in 1985's Raphael No. 1. Casey Jones later went on to star in his own comic book series in addition to making appearances on the various TMNT animated television shows, as well as the original TMNT movie series, where he was played by Elias Koteas.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is scheduled for release June 3, 2016.
