The Kidd here...
Okay, so maybe I shouldn't place all of the blame on Michael Bay here, but with Platinum Dunes producing the new live-action reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount, he's at least part of the problem.
Speaking at the Nickelodeon Upfront last week, Bay talked about the heroes on the halfshell, to which he explained the new vision for Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo.
"When you see this movie, kids are going to believe one day 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 loveable."
I know a lot of people are excited about a new TMNT flick, but are wholesale changes really the price we have to pay for it? Turtles of an alien race...? Did someone forget that whole canon with the radioactive ooze?
The reboot is scheduled for Christmas Day of 2013.
