Like a sweet cross between a Grateful Dead song and Friday the 13th, Casey Jones is one of the most [email protected] comic book characters out there. Growing up, he was the human connection to the Ninja Turtles that made you think “That could be me.” All you needed was some stick or bat and a hockey mask and you were set.

Decades later, it’s only natural if you were disappointed not to see Casey Jones in the 2014 movie. The creative team had even said they wanted to include him, but it would have felt too forced. Luckily, we’re all in for a treat because he will definitely be appearing in the 2016 sequel, and today (May 1), we got our first sneak peek.

Director Michael Bay tweeted out an image of the masked vigilante earlier today, and some other stills from filming have popped up online, too. You can check them out below!

33-year-old actor Stephen Amell is best known for his role as Arrow on both The Flash and Arrow on The CW.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is currently set to premiere on June 3, 2016.
