Michael Bay has given the world an official glimpse at "Arrow" star Stephen Amell suited up as Casey Jones for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle sequel.
Casey is a vigilante, which is not a far cry from Amell's main series as Oliver Queen. Jones goes around wearing a hockey mask and using several pieces of sports equipment as his arsenal, including a baseball bat, hockey stick and more.
His origin is rather simple. New York, where Jones is from, was overrun by criminals. Enticed by examples from TV, Casey decided to do something about the crime in the streets. After equipping himself with a hockey mask and various sports clubs, he began his vigilante campaign.
He started his career with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when he ran into Raphael beating up a pair of muggers. When Raphael let them go, he proceeded to "finish them off" but was stopped by Raphael. The two clashed but eventually helped each other take down additional muggers that appeared after their fight.
Bay’s photo shows a faithful interpretation of the character in Amell’s take, as the actor’s face is entirely obscured by a mask. While he doesn’t have a golf bag full of weapons just yet, he’s already ready to fight with a hockey stick in hand. However, the character is usually portrayed with long hair.
Jones is almost always a love interest for April O’Neil, who is played by Megan Fox in the films.
TMNT 2 is set for a release in 2016.
