Michael Bay Says New 'Ninja Turtles' Are No Longer an Alien Race
 

 
image

Last year, fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were in an uproar after Michael Bay, producing the new version of the heroes in a half shell, simply called Ninja Turtles, said that the turtles would be an alien race from another dimension. His words seemed to indicate that the four mutant heroes would no longer come from the ooze that turned regular turtles into teenage, martial arts experts and crime f!ghters. He even told fans to chill out and confirmed the shortened title. But now Bay is backtracking a whole hell of a lot, pretending as if everyone is crazy, and says that the ooze is still the source for the turtle mutation.

Bay spoke with Moviefone and had this to say about the turtles' origin story:

There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not. It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.

Bay can't escape his quotes from a year ago, especially since it's not as if someone made them up, but director Jonathan Liebesman did explain that the turtles do have alien roots:

Look, it’s so funny—if everyone was such a die-hard fan, they would know that the TCRI canisters where the ooze comes from. That is alien ooze. Now I’m not saying what Michael said is exactly what the movie is, because we’re sitting in a room now figuring everything out. So we don’t know, but we are like Michael said: we’re expanding it, and the expansion will be true to the mythology.

So there's a chance that this is what Bay meant when talking about the origins of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo, but more than likely, the massive backlash just made the writers switch gears a bit and figure out a way to fit in the ooze and also the idea of other dimensions. Anyway, Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, and Pete Ploszek all star in the film which is slated for release next summer on June 6th, 2014. Stay tuned for more updates on the project coming as it moves closer toward production.

They went into damage control and closed production because of this. Bay must didn't realize how loyal the TMNT fan base is, and we were pissed. Because of the internet, folks cant get way with sodomizing our favorite characters anymore. I liked how they tried to fix the narrative Bay had by saying that he really meant to say the ooze was of alien origin. Trying to save face.

The fu*king hack... own your mistake fu*king bi*ch.

Aliens had to be THE most dumbest fu*king idea ever. It was completely useless and unnecessary. And he thought he was "pushing the envelope". He needs to be bi*ch slapped.

/rant

Bay and M. knight should make every fantasy/sci fi film together cause they both fu*k them up, just in opposite ways
