90s kids, getting ready to have your world rocked.

It looks like one of the most infamous villains to ever grace the tube is making his way onto the big screen. At least, it has been hinted at quite heavily recently by the film’s producer.

Michael Bay, who is a producer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, recently sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about the upcoming film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. He still had things to say about TMNT, particularly the villains.

Now, if you seen the trailer, you know Bebop and Rocksteady are two of the villains that will be fighting against the turtles, April O’Neil (Megan Fox), and Casey Jones (played by Arrow‘s Stephen Amell). Apparently, they aren’t the only ones the crew of heroes has to worry about.

During the interview, Bay kinda confirmed that Krang is also to be featured in the film. Or at least, he alluded to the villain’s appearance. The interview with Rolling Stone shared some discussions that took place during the production of the film.

“They start with Ninja Turtles animation. Pablo Helman, a visual-effects supervisor who worked on the Star Wars prequels, appears onscreen and shows Bay the latest version of Krang, a new-to-the-movies villain who is, essentially, a disembodied brain inside a giant robot. “So we’ve eliminated the tentacles,” Helman explains. “Is it too monster-ish?”

“He could have some tentacles,” says Bay. “I just don’t want them coming out of the side. He looks like a stupid octopus.”

If that doesn’t scream spoiler or confirmation, at least it will get moviegoers wondering if Krang is going to be in the film. For those who aren’t familiar with TMNT lore, Krang, who looks like a disembodied brain with tentacles and usually lives inside of a robot body, is one of the most notorious villains from the animated series.

The character has yet to make his debut on the big screen.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will hit theaters on June 3rd.
