Ask the fans who are happy about Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles getting shelved how they'd feel about Paramount getting Nolan to reboot the franchise. It's not that the fans don't want to see a remake, we just don't want Michael Bay sh*tting on a classic from our childhood.
As a storyteller, Nolan brought new ideas and twists into a story familiar enough to make something new feel like something we remember fondly with the first two Batman movies.
Michael Bay is not a storyteller. He's great at setting up visually stunning action sequences. Give him some light fluffy brand new sh*te that can serve as an excuse for the fireworks show...
Nolan flipped the whole Batman series into dark and cynical premise; and now has other following in his footsteps.
We didn't get a chance to see if TMNT would have been awesome.
So you're saying you're not familiar with the source material for either Batman or TMNT... got it...
We never gave him a chance.
We all just ridiculed him based on his past performances. Who knows he might've had the illest vision.
This is like saying if Puffy wrote his own songs, he might have been the next Kool G Rap. I'm just sayin, can you troll harder than this or are you really that dumb?
