Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villains movie series is coming to Paramount+

Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Animation are embarking on a new era of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) in 2023 with the announcement of a series of Paramount+ films focused on the franchise’s infamous cast of villains. Deadline says the plan is to start releasing the fully CG movies next year, but details on which stories have yet to be told weren’t shared. While we’re still awaiting official details, it’s probably safe to expect appearances from franchise stalwarts like Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, and/or Krang.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans have more than animated villain movies to look forward to. A CGI theatrical release by Seth Rogen has been on the way for 2020 and promises a film focused on the “teenage” roots of mutant superheroes. Rogen says the hope is to bring that teenage element to the fore without losing all the other things that make crime fighters a special team.

Comedians Colin and Casey Jost dive into the sewers of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe too, as an August 2021 announcement revealed their plans to write a live-action film. This project is produced by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Scott Mednick, and Galen Walker, but without any release plans, it will be some time before the film comes to fruition. Be sure to stay tuned for more on this project and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles villain movies in the next year.
