"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" Title Possibly Revealed



Reports from this past weekend possibly provided some details on the sequel to last year's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie from Paramount, which has started filming in New York.

One scene, filmed Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, had Will Arnett's character, Vern Fenwick, at a basketball game with his apparent girlfriend, played by Victoria's Secret lingerie model Alessandra Ambrosio. (Convenient, considering the last shot of the first movie.) During filming, the two shared a bag of popcorn and, apparently, at least one kiss.

During a podcast interview with The Lowe Post, LA Clippers star J.J. Redick detailed, that he, along with fellow Clippers Austin Rivers, Matt Barnes, Spencer Hawes, and DeAndre Jordan were featured in the filming along with five Knicks players. He also let slip that the title might be "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell."

Of course, shooting titles are subject to change, so it's hard to take any meaning from this.

In an announcement yesterday at Emerald City Comic Con, IDW and Kevin Eastman announce that Eastman has signed an exclusivity contract with IDW that will see all of his new projects created solely with IDW.

From a press release, it was detailed that Eastman will be joining the IDW staff "in their newly announced move to San Diego’s historic Liberty Station NTC offices with an office on-site, and his original works will mark the inaugural exhibition of the San Diego Comic Art Gallery"

IDW’s working relationship with Eastman started in 2011 with the launch of the all-new IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Eastman has continued to work closely with IDW on projects including classic reprints of the Ninja Turtles, special IDW Limited editions featuring original art alongside essential stories, and cover art for hit original series. A number of new projects will be announced in the coming months as part of this agreement.

Nickelodeon to Release TMNT 4Kids Series on DVD



In a long-anticipated move, Nickelodeon has announced the DVD re-release of two volumes of episodes from the 4Kids TMNT cartoon series. Unfortunately, it's probably not the release fans have been waiting for.


From a pressrelease provided by TVShowsOnDVD.com:
The classic 2003 series of the hot Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise returns to DVD with Volume 1 and Volume 2. Each single-disc volume includes 3 first season episodes filled with all the ninja action and comic-book adventure that TMNT fans love...released in time for summer and available at hot, low value pricing!
So, we're getting two single-disc volumes that have only three episodes, and it also sounds like they might not even be the first six episodes?

Honestly, I have no idea what to expect from this. On the one hand, sales of these will probably be used to justify future releases. But, if you don't yet have these episodes on DVD, you probably want to hold out for something better.

IDW Announces New "Casey & April" Mini Series



Beginning in June, IDW will be publishing a special four-issue mini series featuring Casey Jones and April O'Neil. In an exclusive interview with IDW, writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Irene Koh give some background on this story that sees April and Casey on a road trip to the southwest.
When asked for details about the dangers that Casey and April will encounter while on the hunt for Pantheon-related answers, Tamaki kept things vague but did offer a hint at the kinds of threats our heroes will encounter. "Well, when you're dealing with the Pantheon, you're dealing with some supernatural level challenges," said Tamaki. "It's a battle of minds and will." 
Potentially more pressing than the dangers that April and Casey will run into on this road trip are the relationship problems that the couple will confront in the series. "April and Casey are lovers in a dangerous time," said Tamaki. "The question is, what does it mean to be in love when it's not such a dangerous time? What does it mean to have love last?"
