Sounds Like We Might Be Taking A Trip To Dimension X In TMNT Sequel
last night we found out that after a very impressive opening weekend, Paramount has already greenlit a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. The likes of Casey Jones, Bebop and Rocksteady have already been teased...but could we see Krang and Dimension X too?
The Michael Bay produced TMNT reboot doesn't stray too far into sci-fi territory, but any Turtles fan will know that most versions of the mythology eventually take Raph, Leo, Donnie and Mikey far away from New York..in fact, far away from Earth. In pretty much all previous incarnations of the story, villainous alien brains known as the Utroms (or the Kraang) are introduced, along with their homeworld of Dimension X -- so can we expect to see these elements in the sequel? Screenrant spoke to the first film's director Jonathan Liebesman, along with producers Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form, and when asked if there were plans to "go big and sci-fi" the answer they got was: "F~ck yes!"
Jonathan Liebesman: "I would love to. I mean it’s not up to me. It’s up to all of us to decide.
Brad Fuller: But we’ve talked about those worlds already.
Andrew Form: There are scripts that have been written for this movie that integrated those worlds into it already…
Jonathan Liebesman: They were just too…it made the movie a bit too unfocused for this particular story."
This trio have previously hinted that we might also see the likes of hockey mask-wearing vigilante Casey Jones and Shredder's mutant henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady, so if we'll also be getting Dimension X and Krang, things could get very interesting. Does this sound like a good idsea to you?Or do you think it sounds like a bit much to pack into the next film? Sound off below.
