Along with the release date of the new film, Rogen, 39, shared an imagine that appeared to be taken from Leonardo’s notebook, featuring all sorts of easter eggs about the characters.
“Leo takes notes like I used to,” Rogen captioned the image.
The sketch included jokes about Leonardo’s brothers and TMNT teammates (like Donatello getting a series of question marks in the skill set department).
There was also a drawing of Leonardo’s iconic sword, the chemical recipe of the genetic mutations that created the TMNT, and a nod to April O’Neil, the journalist who often helps the heroes in a half shell during their time of need.
