The panel started with a bang, with people skateboarding on a half pipe and dancers hyping up the crowd. Everyone was wearing Ninja Turtle headbands, and a DJ was playing "Can I Kick It," the same song featured in the initial trailer.
Chris Aronson, a Paramount executive, then emerged from a sewer pipe on stage wearing a turtle mask and handed out pizza to the audience. Later on, Seth Rogan came out wearing a green suit and expressed his excitement about working on the project. He talked about his obsession with the Turtles since he was eight years old and even mentioned the story about his dad buying him a pair of nunchucks back then. He also mentioned how they cast actual teenagers to capture that teenage energy and had them record and play together. He then showed some footage from the movie.
The footage opens with April talking to the Turtles and Mikey saying that if there are more people like her that would accept them, to which April responds that there's no way. The Turtles just want to be accepted and think that apprehending some villains would help their cause. The footage then focuses on the villain Superfly, whom many have speculated is actually Baxter Stockman in a secret mutation form that he keeps from everyone. There's a collage on the wall with yarn going from different spots across the collage, and a question is asked: "Who is Superfly?" Reports suggest that Superfly is the main villain of the film with Bebop and Rocksteady being his main bodyguards.
The footage also showed more villains, including Wingnut, Ray Fillet, Leatherhead, Genghis Frog, Scumbug, and Mondo Gecko, who apparently speaks with an Australian accent. They are all part of Superfly's crew, and the Turtles didn't even know that other mutants existed, so they try to make friends with them at first, which was apparently pretty funny. There's an interaction between Michelangelo and Mondo with one of them saying, "I'm digging your vibe."
At one point, Leo says, "Let's go," but the other Turtles make fun of him because he's trying to be the leader, indicating that this is early in their journey, and they don't have their roles established yet. There's also a funny moment where Raph asks April if she recorded all that while they're jumping across rooftops.
Lastly, there's a scene where Leonardo tells Splinter that they almost went to the movies with a human, and the rest of the brothers get upset, saying Leo ratted them out. Apparently, Splinter says, "Hey, don't use that word that way," before the clip ends.
Fans are eagerly anticipating the release of the movie, which promises to be a wild ride full of mutant mayhem. The trailer and footage shown at CinemaCon have given fans a taste of what's to come, and it's safe to say that excitement levels are high. Stay tuned for more updates on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem movie.
