The Nickelodeon’s Ninja turtles are invading comics shop everywhere today in celebration of “Free Comic Book Day”. The issue availabl (for free of course) is our first look at the anticipated new Comics series from IDW. Check out a preview below:
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.
The past year has seen some crazy turn of events regarding Paramount’s upcoming TMNT movie reboot. First rumored that the turtles would be aliens, and later confirmed in a leaked script, then Bay officially announces the movie title as “Ninja Turtles” dropping the flagship words “Mutant” and “Teenage”. Things got even worse when paramount announced a delay in production signing the movie being in trouble.
But everything seems to be getting better now, as the script has been rewritten by Evan Daugherty, filming has just started, and to everyone’s surprise, Paramout showed the first logo for the movie during their CinemaCon presentation, and the logo clearly reads “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”
Does this mean our four favorite heroes are once again mutated turtles instead of aliens from another planet ? We sure hope so!
After announcing the cast for the four Turtles and April, it is time for announcing the actor who will play MAster Splinter.
Deadline revealed that actor Danny Woodburn (Rorschach’s voice in Watchmen) will lend his voice (and maybe motion capture acting) to Master Splinter.
Ninja Turtles is stated for a June 14 2014 release.

Nick’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been pretty successful among fans and the target demographic for the show. The show has already been picked up for two more season while it is still running its first.
Talking to USA Today, Show-runner Ciro Nieli revealed some awesome tidbits about to expect from the next season of Teenage Mutant ninja turtles.
On the first season’s finale:
“Fans can guess there’s a lot in there that needs to come to a point. The trick is not letting that point burst,” the executive producer says. “There’s a million things we can do, but we have to temper ourselves so we can have a good series overall and not just a good season.”
And there will be explosions. “I always try to end episodes with an explosion,” Nieli admits. “Sometimes we can’t afford it and they get dust clouds, and I get disappointed and sad. It’s kind of a fail. A perfect show ends with a boom.”
On “Mutagen-Man” making his nick debut:
The toy version of the Mutagen Man was always a favorite of Nieli’s, he says. “All of us have one sitting on our desks and it’s just a matter of time: ‘Well, when are we going to do Mutagen Man?’
