The Ninja Turtles are now aliens.

No matter how bad his movies are, no matter how much they fail critically, someone keeps giving Michael Bay money.

Anyone ever see Highlander II: The Quickening? Basically the same concept. The 2007 film wasn't perfect, but it has to be better than anything involving Michael Bay.

Holy piss no.

They'd better try to pass this off as some sort of reboot/re-imagining/etc., or I'm going to be vehemently opposed to this. Regardless, I'm not really looking forward to this new... whatever it is. I'm actually fine with a TMNT movie by Michael Bay (not that I'm a fan of his), but there's just no need to do a retcon of the entire series. It's just stupid.

They'd just better present it well (that is, their purpose for rewriting the Turtles' origin), that's all I'm saying.

Since they would no longer be mutants, the rumor is that the movie would just be called "Ninja Turtles."

Bay, please stop ruining childhood icons.

Ouch. Sucks for Turtles' fans.

Michael Bay has released a statement concerning the backlash from fans:

--- Quote from: Michael Bay ---Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.
--- End quote ---

That he's working with one of the creators is nice, but the fact that the turtles are aliens remains a problem, not to mention "Calm down, the script is good" is not very reassuring when coming from the mouth of the guy who made Transformers 1-3.
