The casting of Stephen Amell as Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 was a stroke of genius and we finally have our first look of the Arrow star, all decked out. Michael Bay teased a shot via twitter today:

Impressed! It seems that Bay is going for more of a modern look to Casey, which makes sense, but still utilizing the sinister styled hockey mask that we all know and love.
Arnold Bernid “Casey” Jones is a vigilante from the TMNT universe who tends to take his sport to a…competitive level. Using baseball bats, golf clubs, hockey sticks and cricket bats as weapsons, Casey takes the law into his own hands and enforces a sporty brand of justice. Casey has become a fan favorite over the years and played a key roll in the live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle feature film (1990). Elias Koteas, who played Jones in the films, gave us a violent and lovable love interest for April O’Neil and comrade to the turtles and introduced the character to a whole new audience.
Stephen Amell, best know for his breakout role as the title character/Oliver Queen will take on the role of Jones in the upcoming film. Arrow’s dark and gritty personality seems like a perfect fit for the fellow vigilante and we couldn’t be more pumped to see him donning the mask.
