TMNT Fans rejoice!!! The Turtles are back to been Mutants in the Ninja Turtles Movie reboot

A year ago, or so, Ninja Turtles reboot producer, Michael Bay, broke the internet when he announced that the turtles will be aliens from outer space and that the movie will be called Ninja Turtles, removing the words “Teenage Mutant”. Fans went berserk and outraged at the blasphemy. Things did not go any better when a supposed script for the movie leaked proving that not only the Turtles and Splinter are from another planet, but that Shredder is now Colonel Shrader, a military dude who reveals himself at the end of the movie as an alien with spikes coming out of his body.

Things got better for us fans couple weeks ago when Paramount showed the movie logo, at CinemaCon, and the words “Teenage Mutant” were back. And now finally speaking about the controversy to Moviphone, Mr Bay himself confirmed that the Turtles will not be aliens and that the movie will be sticking, very closely, to the source material.

Michael Bay: “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.”

It sure seems that fans have won this time, and that our beloved mutants will not be E.T’s cousins in next year’s reboot of the movie franchise.
