Actor William Fichtner (“Prison Break”) — who provided the menacing voiceover in earlier trailers — is credited as playing the famous villain, but the trailer throws a curveball when Fichtner talks to a mysterious, shadowy figure about “taking your armor to the next level.”

For anyone who remembers Super Shredder at the end of 1991 live-action “Turtles” movie, “Secret of the Ooze,” this incarnation is even bigger.
