 Michael Bay is a tool. I want Teenage MUTANT Ninja Turtles (from Earth). The only plus side to this is if we get to see Krang.

Wow, first Dark Shadows is a comedy and now rhe Ninja Turtles are aliens. Wait until people find out NBC is rebooting The Munsters as an hour-long dramatic series. the interwebz will explode.

Well in the first run comic it was aliens that provided the ooze.  When they ended up in space to confront them it was pretty cool.  But Bay is in the Lucas school of not giving a fuk about the fans.  So this will probably suck.

As long as it stars Shite Labeef then we'll be all set for another Bay crapfest.  Someone needs to stop this man.

Well, he could just be using alien to mean unfamiliar or completely different to humans or something to that effect.  Alien isn't only for describing beings from other planets. 

I don't see this doing Transformers type numbers at the box office, but it'll be super awesome for kids.  People really do need to chill.

 I'm betting the ooze that turns them will  be alien. Thus making them mutant and alien?

Is he going to change the names of the turtles too? That would be fun.

hahahaha

Yeah, I was reading all this as the ooze being the alien component here. Not the turtles themselves. But maybe we're all be wrong on that front.

Bay is working with one of the original creators of the comics (Eastman, I think?) on this story, so even though I'm a 30-something childhood fan of the property, I'm pretty sure whatever origin story they choose to run with will be fine by me.

However, if they go and make them actual aliens my only sticking point will be: why turtles? I mean, having them come from outer space is one thing, but how do you explain them being turtles then? Are turtles like dolphins in the Hitchhiker's Guide universe now?

I'm with Tonebone, not really having a problem with this....yet. I'm a long time fan of all the Turtle films, never followed the comics and the toons were on and off so obviously I'm not a diehard maybe that's why.

Still like some have mentioned maybe we're not fully understanding Bay's meaning and maybe he has a point by saying we haven't seen the script. Maybe he's using a play on words to throw the fans off, piss them offf onlly to pleasantly surprise them.

Ok maybe I'm giving Bay too much credit, either way I'm sure I'll be there opening day. Even Bay's bad movies are worth seeing IMO even if it's just for all the over the top action

I dunno.  I smell "Catwoman" on Michael Bay's breath....
