He only makes a quick cameo when April O'Neil asks the film's primary villain, Eric Sacks what his experiments are for. In the scene, we see Sacks, April's dad, and Baxter Stockman standing in the background. In a later scene, Stockman's name was written on a whiteboard by April when she is trying to put together her knowledge of Project Renaissance.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Although a prominent industrialist and a genius who graduated MIT at fifteen, he is soon revealed to be working with the Foot Clan, using salvaged alien technology to rescue Shredder from jail by teleporting him away during a prison transport. When Shredder learns that the component Stockman has is one of three parts to a teleporter that would allow the alien warlord Krang to dispatch his ultimate war machine to Earth, he arranges for Stockman to assemble the other pieces. Once the portal device is complete, however, Shredder dismisses Stockman's efforts and has him taken away to their headquarters in Tokyo. Realizing that Shredder has betrayed him, Stockman unsuccessfully tried to break free of the Clan men taking him away as he screamed for mercy. At the end of the film, April O'Neil states that Stockman remains at large.
- Stockman was slated to return for a sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, but due to disappointing box office returns, the sequel was scrapped.
