Michael Bay: Ninja Turtles Movie Will Make 'TMNT' Aliens, Fans Cry Foul

Fans of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" franchise may want to sit down while reading this. Michael Bay, who is producing the new live action "NInja Turtles" movie, dropped by the Nickelodeon Upfront in New York to talk about the new project. The producer is promising fans an epic return-to-form for the sewer-dwelling masked heros.

But then Bay dropped quite the bombshell: he may be changing up the Turtles' origins.

"These turtles are from an alien race," he said, "And they're going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable."

Until now they were referred to as mutant ninja turtles, not alien ninja turtles. For fans of the comics, the traditional backstory for the "Ninja Turtles" is that they were regular turtles who mutated after being exposed to a radioactive substance.

Needless to say, the fans are not too pleased with Bay for changing the origins of the beloved "Ninja Turtles."

"So will they be changing the title?," asked one Reddit user. "I mean, 'TMNT' doesn't really apply anymore ... Maybe they could be Teenage Alien Interstellar Ninja Turtles?"

However, another Reddit user pointed out that if the Turtles were in fact aliens -- and not nuchuck-wielding ninjas -- perhaps they would have developed more sophisticated weaponry:

"If they're aliens then why would they be ninjas!?!? They would have laser guns and lightsabers and junk! They wouldn't need to be ninjas! Michael Bay is the destroyer of worlds!"

Despite public fan outcry, Bay believes that the alien "Ninja Turtles" could inspire a whole new generation of kids to believe in Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael again.

"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."

I was ok with Bay doing the Transformers films but not this. Why another live action film and why change their well established back story? Hell, Matt Murdoch, aka The Daredevil, had his powers activated from the same canister of radioactive goo that turned the 4 pet turtles and a sewer rat into the TMNT and Splinter their master. Why not a sequel to the animated feature they made back in 2007? All this is going to be is explosions and more explosions.

Bay is a douche...I hope not only the outcry by fans, but the creators of TMNT come out and demand that this is changed back. Aliens...wtf?!?!?!?!:livid::livid::livid::livid:

These people have no imagination left. There are thousands of stories waiting to be made into great movies and we get remake after remake after remake.

STOP!

Bit more.


Michael Bay recently stated (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/GreenieGobbie/news/?a=56536) that the reboot (which will be directed by Battle LA's Jonathan Liebesman) will have a new origin for the turtles, saying that they're "from an alien race". Of course, the die hard TMNT fans did not like the sound of that. Now, some more details for the movie have apparently showed up.

Sources have told First Showing that the turtles are a part of "An entire race of inter-dimensional beings". Concerning a possible villain, the site has heard that the inter-dimensional storyline is happening because Krang will be a villain in the film, which would mark the first time the character has appeared on the big screen (and maybe along with that huge body suit and the Technodrome?).
