It's once again being speculated and rumored that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are actually adults.
Once upon a time, reportedly producer Michael Bay just wanted the title for the movie to be "Ninja Turtles" as the actual Turtles were no longer teenagers with it also said they were aliens.
Eventually, the real title was released with "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and the alien aspects and origins were said to be scrapped.
However, a toy image has apparently hit the net which shows the evolution of the Turtles with: turtle to teen to what we see them as now, which is stated as "Ninja Turtle."
If this is legit and current, it seems odd that the title of the movie is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles if they are adults. Perhaps they are a little bit older than previous versions at 18 or 19.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" has an August 8, 2014 release directed by Jonathan Liebesman, produced by Michael Bay starring Megan Fox as April O'Neil, William Fichtner as Shredder, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and Whoopi Goldberg as Bernadette Thompson.
The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.
