If you'll remember, back in January when images began to leak out from Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I reported that a source "close to the production" had informed me that 'Krang' was in the film. My source had specifically said that 'Krang' would appear in Shredder's abdominal region. While the concept art below does not show that, it does show that 'Krang' was supposed to appear in the film. The artwork below was created by conceptual artist Tsvetomir Georgiev. It also reveals designs for two other characters that originated from 1987 cartoon show: Bebop and Rocksteady.
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 directed by Jonathan Liebesman ("Wrath of the Titans"), and produced by Michael Bay ("The Rock"). The script was written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec, based on characters created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The cast includes: Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Danny Woodburn as Splinter, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Will Arnett as Vernon and William Fichtner as Shredder.
