And here’s Casey Jones, once played by noted character actor Elias Koteas, now essayed by Stephen Amell, who knows a thing or two about nocturnal urban vigilantes from his ongoing tenure as Oliver Queen on the TV series Arrow.

What more is there to say? He’s a crimefighter who beats street thugs half to death with an assortment of sporting equipment, although this iteration seems to favour nifty tricks with hockey pucks rather than straight up bludgeoning dudes into a coma. Also, this may be the first iteration of Casey Jones with short hair, a break from canon sure to generate a furor on par with the whole blonde James Bond thing a few years back.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is in cinemas from June 9.
