Michael Bay, what have you done? (TMNT content)

Quote:
At the annual Nickelodeon upfront presentation last week, über-producer Michael Bay revealed details for Platinum Dunes’ upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, including a new origin story for the half-shell heroes that is sure to raise the ire of diehard fans.

“When you see this movie, kids are going to believe one day these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie,” said Bay as he took the stage to discuss his new vision for the reptilian reboot. “These turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.”

In the original mythology, four baby turtles fall into the sewer and come into contact with glowing radioactive ooze, which mutates them into four bad-ass warriors trained in ninjutsu by astute rodent Splinter. But could the rewriting of the Turtles’ origin story dissuade some fans from embracing the newest incarnation? A comic book-to-movie adaptation’s worst nightmare is bad pre-publicity, and Bay may have generated that in about 30 words.

On the flip side, it might seem outrageous to non-fans of the series that Teenage Mutant Ninja purists are offended by the new mythos of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. Truth, we might sound a wee bit ridiculous when we cry out, “I can’t believe Bay says they’re aliens when they’re obviously derived from radioactive slime!” But Bay is essentially erasing almost 30 years of love for transmogrified adolescent reptile ninjas by claiming each turtle is less of a fearsome, fighting toxic anomaly and more of a forest green E.T. with nunchucks. What would Shredder think!?

"...tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.”

Sounds like the producers pitching the idea of "Poochy"

Ok but the Turtles ARE "tough, edgy, funny and lovable" they've always been like that from all the cartoons and comic books and video games I remember playing when I was a kid. So he's not changing that part at all, so I don't understand the anger towards it.

And as far as Christopher Nolan doing this movie ? love that guy makes pure gold, but what can he do with a bunch of goofy fun loving pizza eating characters, I think he would probably end up messing up the movie even more than Bay, lol, since he's an expert in serious characters, darker movies...

my two favorite comic book characters batman and wolverine, so he's touched on one of those, but I always wished to see just how truly badass and true to life he could've made Wolverine if he did that Wolvie movie instead of whoever the fck fcked it up

I don't know how Michael Bay is going to fit a $200million highway chase / accident scene full of explosions with more explosions into a TMNT movie. But I guess the part of my brain that likes shiny things and loud noises is at least midly interested. Fuck you Michael Bay.


As far as Chris Nolan, he turns comics into dark reality. TMNT could make a good movie with a back ally ninja guild thing going on maybe.

Ninja turtles the first movie was the best. Simple, funny, and catchy lines. Secret of the ooze was good too.

I have a feeling this is gonna be full of turtles on steroids and pointless explosions.

On the plus.. This is kinda rekindling my interest to download the original movie.

Nolan would be amazing. Actually the first TMNT movie is quite dark, and quite good in fact

^^ & Bad Boys


Heard about this for awhile wasn't sure if they were going to go through with

I loved the original 3 all 3 (yes even 3 i especially loved the time travel installment)


I think this could work the 4th movie, the animated one, was dark and action-packed and i didnt enjoy it as much i prefer the lovable tv cartoon versions rather than the darker comic versions


I'll watch these Bay versions but i dont think they'll be as good as the first 3
