Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star Megan Fox, who plays April O'Neil, has revealed to ComingSoon.net a secret Easter egg in the film. Well, I guess it won't be a secret anymore if you keep reading this article. Fox revealed that a character from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles history is present in the film.
That character is Baxter Stockman.
Stockman is just an Easter egg. Fox says you really have to be paying attention to even notice him, so he must not do anything of significance in the film, but he's there.
Stockman is a character that dates back to the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books, and has appeared, in various and varied incarnations, in many of the Turtles' various animated series and comic book continuities that have followed.
In each iteration, he is a scientist creator of the Mousers, robot enemies of the Turtles. In some versions, he also is mutated in a man-fly hybrid, and in others he becomes a cyborg.
Fox's revelation will surely give Turtle fans something to look out for while they're at the theater.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens August 8.
