(CBR) Jonathan Liebesman and Michael Bay's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is fast approaching its August 8 release, and the TMNT Fansite Twitter has posted a very good look at William Fichtner's portrayal of Shredder. It's a far more bladed take on the Turtles' arch-nemesis, and it certainly looks like he dwarfs Master Splinter in the photo. Although fans also got a glimpse of Shredder in the recent black-and-white "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" theatrical posters, this is the first time the character has been fully revealed in the context of the film.
