This is a first look at the Shredder, played by William Fichtner from the upcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. TMNT concept art has provided a sneak peek at the Shredder’s metallic accessories while in a showdown between the villain and the Turtles’ stoic rat master, Splinter (voiced by Tony Shalhoub). For some reason the Transformers influence appearance weighs heavy on The Shredder’s new look, almost robot-like, and the Edward Scissorhands style hand blades puts the whole look almost over the top.
Could Bay be going to far on recreating the Ninja Turtles characters? Why is Shredder's new look so overcomplicated?
