TMNT

TMNT general thread. Grew up with the turtles as very possibly my favorite and most iconic heroes (next to Sonic, of course), so I thought I'd kick it off with this utterly horrifying piece of info in which my childhood is about to be raped:

Just announced for a Christmas Day, 2013 release last week, Platinum Dunes' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to feature a very non-traditional origin for its reptilian heroes. In fact, producer Michael Bay hints that the turtles may not be mutants at all.

Word arrives via Stuff We Like and a video of Bay speaking at last week's Nickelodeon Upfront in New York where he states:

"When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie. These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable."

To be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature a script from Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and John Fusco.

The franchise, which began as a black and white comic book series in 1984, rose to tremendous popularity when it became an animated series in 1987. Following the first live-action film in 1990, the series spawned two live-action sequels, a live-action television series, a second animated series and a CGI feature film.
WHAT

THE

FUCK!?

But if they aren't mutants then doesn't that make their whole premise sort of useless? Also Michael Bay should leave our childhoods alone.

I don't think it's that bad a change, except that mutant is in the franchise name and many plot points revolve around the mutation stuff.

Five different screenplay writers for one 2-hour film = oh boy.

Teenage Extraterrestrial Ninja Turtles --> "TENT"
Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles --> "TANT"
Teenage Ninja Turtles --> "TNT"

Michael Bay: Did someone say 'TNT'? LET'S DO IT!

You know that when the word "edgy" is used it automatically is going to be bad.

You guys should really watch the movie Turtles Forever if you haven't. Seemed like the perfect way for Eastman and Laird to say goodbye to what semblance of modesty the franchise managed to preserve over the decades.

Edgy? Probably means Bay ships Casey x Donatello hardcore or something.

Check this out. Michael Bay is already responding to the hate.

I haven't seen it, and as much as I hate 4kids, I will admit that the few episodes I saw of their TMNT reboot I quite enjoyed. I heard they jumped the shark later and took them across the galaxy and traveling through time, but eh, whatever. I liked what I saw, and I'm shocked at myself for feeling that way.

Even the future shock thing wasn't that bad, although it really did screw up the plot-lines written for the show, but also kept it alive for a few more seasons than it otherwise would have lasted.

Apparently I'm over a year late to the party on this one, but if you are too, then enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. (Good lord, those smiles are creepy.)

They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE'S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN.
