Eager fans of the forthcoming Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows are going to have to wait for the film to be intertwined with another franchise. 

Speaking with Screen Rant on Wednesday, producer Brad Fuller explained that there are no planned crossovers on the horizon, even if the soon-to-be-released TMNT 2 film does include a blatant reference to Michael Bay's Transformers.  

Speaking about a potential crossover, Fuller played down the hype, saying "we need to do a lot more work before we get to that stage." He then elaborated, noting that because TMNT creators Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman "created so many amazing stories" over the years, current capabilities "are not even close" to incorporating such a scheme. 

But in a slight glimmer of hope, he did mention that Nina Turtles 2 includes "a tangential moment that the Transformers fans will enjoy." He notes however, that no one has informed Michael Bay about it. 

Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows releases this Friday, June 3. Watch the trailer here
