Arrow star Amell spoke about his excitement at joining the Turtle family, saying it was ”surreal.”

“Casey Jones has a beef to settle with two of the people the Turtles are after: Bebop and Rocksteady. So Casey unwillingly goes along with the Turtles to find them,” he says. “He’s a little suspicious of the Turtles.

“When we meet Casey in the movie, he is far from a vigilante carrying a hockey stick He’s a correction’s officer. But he does have a hockey stick….I mean I know them. My wife and I watched the original movie with Elias Koteas as Casey Jones. But other than that, I did my own thing,” the actor stated.
