The new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is out now, and the film is teasing a major connection between its main villain and a classic TMNT character. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise is massive, spanning TV shows, comic books, video games, and several movie series. Because of this, there is a massive pool of characters and stories to pull from, and TMNT: Mutant Mayhem may be pulling from one of the franchise’s most iconic storylines.
TMNT: Mutant Mayhem‘s new trailer gives a much better look at the story of the film, with it showing off all kinds of mutants, including Splinter, Bebop and Rocksteady, and the villainous Superfly. TMNT: Mutant Mayhem features a star-studded cast and tons of deep cuts from the franchise’s lore, with it introducing some lesser-known mutants to a wider audience. There are still loads of questions regarding TMNT: Mutant Mayhem, but one major theory is all but confirmed.
Superfly Is Probably A Mutated Form Of Baxter Stockman
The new trailer for TMNT: Mutant Mayhem introduces Superfly, who seems to be the main villain of the film. Voiced by Ice Cube, Superfly is a powerful new foe that leads a gang of mutants. Superfly is an interesting enough villain on his own, but it seems likely that the character is a mutated form of another classic TMNT character: Baxter Stockman.
Baxter Stockman is one of the most popular TMNT villains, with him being a scientist that often experiments on mutants. One of Stockman’s most popular stories involves him accidentally turning himself into a mutant fly, leading him to a life of crime. Baxter Stockman is already confirmed to appear in TMNT: Mutant Mayhem, voiced by Giancarlo Esposito. While the voice actors are different between the two characters, it would be weird to have Superfly and Stockman have no connection, meaning that it’s likely the film will reveal that Superfly is a mutated form of Stockman.
What TMNT: Mutant Mayhem Has Revealed About Superfly’s Plan
Although it doesn’t reveal much, the trailer for TMNT: Mutant Mayhem has given a small glimpse at Superfly’s plan. Superfly believes that humans will never accept mutants, thinking that the two cannot co-exist. Because of this, Superfly is leading an army of mutants to seemingly overthrow humanity, and the Turtles will have to stop it.
Superfly has curated a pretty powerful army, with the film already confirming several mutants that will appear. TMNT: Mutant Mayhem‘s cast of characters features Bebop, Rocksteady, Wingnut, Ray Filet, Genghis Frog, Leatherhead, and Mondo Gecko, all of whom will presumably ally with Superfly. Superfly is gearing up to be a dangerous new foe in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, but he may be hiding a big Baxter Stockman secret.
