Imagine a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
movie that finally delivers fan-favorite villains Bebop, Rocksteady, and Krang. Apparently that's what was on the table in the early stages of development for the Michael Bay-produced movie, which hit theaters in August. And we've seen the concept art to prove it.

, a visual effects house that's worked on movies such as Noah
and Sin City 2
. Georgiev previously did much of the concept work on Green Lantern
, and on Thursday he posted a batch of photos
to his Facebook page showing his design work for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
What we've seen has given us an idea of what Bebop and Rocksteady might have looked like if they'd made it to the screen. But don't despair. If anything, these renderings should inspire hope that we'll actually see the pair in a sequel. After all, we know director Jonathan Liebesman and producer Andrew Form have even said they'd like to work them in. While talking to ScreenRant
at Comic-Con in July, Liebesman and Form both talked about characters they wanted to fit in.
"Casey Jones. Bebop and Rocksteady," Form said. "We had those conversations throughout development of this movie but we’re launching this movie now in two weeks."
