Yesterday Michael Bay revealed that the new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie feature a slight change in the origins of the Turtles.
Bay said that in the new movie the Turtles would be “from an alien race.” which sent everyone on Twitter and Facebook into a mad frenzy. Some journalists tried being smart in saying he's correct, that in the comic book, they were aliens because they were exposed to an ooze of alien origin. Doesn't work that way, guys. They were never aliens.
Bay had this to say about the negative feedback he received:
“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.”
Bay is producing the new Turtles movie from a script by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. Jonathan Liebesman is directing.
