(PCM) In partnership with Wizard World Philadelphia, actor Stephen Amell introduced the film “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows” to two packed house crowds at the UA Riverview fan screening in Philadelphia, PA.
We had a chance to briefly catch up with Stephen Amell on the red carpet prior to the screening to chat about, of course, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows’ and gain some knowledge about some of the things he was surprised to learn about himself as an actor by taking on the role of Casey Jones and filming in NYC.
Amell also joked with reporters on the carpet when asked who would win in a fight between The Green Arrow and Casey Jones saying with a laugh, “Please don’t make me answer that one! You know it is too hard to choose between characters”. Amell also spoke a bit about “Arrow” saying Oliver always “gives people advice, even if they don’t want it” and he can’t comment on the what the future may hold for Oliver and Felicity now that it appears in the finale that much of Team Arrow has gone their separate ways.
Amell also revealed that he would “love” to go back and work some more with the WWE and that pretty much “depends on and is all up to Vince [McMahon]”!
About the film:
Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to theaters this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder (Brian Tee) escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
