[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1029:]]With news that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be having an alien origin, the internet has exploded!
Quick recap: Producer on the movie Michael Bay let loose the following:
"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."
Now with that, various people related to the TMNT mythos have been taking sides. Various voice actors and creators have come out and offered their thoughts etc.
The latest (via ComingSoon) is from the director on the new TMNT movie, Jonathan Liebesman, of Battle Los: Angeles fame, and the upcoming Wrath of Titans.
"I heard about it, and I'm glad there's such a passionate fanbase--I think that was good news for everyone--but literally, I've just been locked in a room with Kevin Eastman. I think what we're developing, the fans will love. I'm a fan, and I love what we're doing. It's a lot of stuff Kevin's been thinking about for a long time and just hasn't done. Anything we expand will tie right into the mythology, so I think fans will go apesh*t when they see it."
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is slated for a Christmas Day 2013 release.
