Michael Bay Claims that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Will Be Aliens. Seriously.

Unpopular opinion of the century: I like Michael Bay. I’m not always forthcoming about my adoration for the much-maligned director, but I honestly enjoy his work. Sure, some of it may be more than a little goofy and a bit long in the tooth, but his output is almost always enjoyable. Save for “Pearl Harbor”, of course. At the 2012 Nickelodeon Upfront in New York City on March 14th, Bay decided to take a moment to explain a little bit about where the franchise is headed. Apparently our favorite ninja turtle heroes won’t be mutants anymore — they will be an “alien race” that’s “completely loveable”. We’ll just have to see about that. Truthfully, as long as the film is entertaining, I really don’t give an mutated rat’s ass about where they came from. I know that may piss off loyalists to the nth degree, but, again, I don’t care.

Director Jonathan Liebesman’s take on “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” lands in theaters on December 13th, 2013. When you’re ready, the video featuring Bay’s plans lies below.
