As a huge fan of the TMNT, I thought I would respond to this as I’m sure some of you are curious on my thoughts. Director Michael Bay, put his fans into outrage again after he announced that he is adapting a re-boot of the TMNT franchise. Then he went on to say that the turtles came from an alien race which upset some of the die-hard fans. Michael then, responded again, telling fans they need to calm down, saying he wants to expand the origins and give it a more complex back up story.

While everyone knows they aren’t aliens, they were actually mutants. They got turned into mutants by radioactive waste. They didn’t come from space or other planets.
While I’m sure that’s not what Michael Bay means, the TMNT’s re-boot is still gonna suck. He’s still going to destroy TMNT’s, just like he destroyed the Transformers franchise. You can betcha the TMNT’s re-boot will be a huge special effects movie full of CGI. I sure hope the Turtles themselves won’t be CGI characters, they probably will be, I wouldn’t be surprised.
On top of all this, it’s not the first that the TMNT’s origin story has been changed. It’s been changed before through the cartoon series, and the animated movie, “Turtles: Forever”. I’m sure they changed the origin stories through the comics many times, as well.
I’m not sure if Michael Bay is directing the “TMNT’s” re-boot or if he’s just producing it, but either way it’s still going to suck. If they can make Master Shredder, all badass and evil looking, I might give it a chance, but I’ve been skeptical of this re-boot even before this controversy started.
