Michael Bay makes TMNT into aliens, pisses off world

Michael Bay really pissed off the nerds when he announced at the 2012 Nickelodeon Upfront event info about his reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

“When you see this movie, kids are going to believe one day that these turtles do exist, when we’re done with this movie. These turtles are from an alien race, and they’re going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.”

Aliens? Does he know nothing about Raph, Mikey, Donny and Leo? Those dudes were not aliens. In fact the original comics were created as a spoof on a bunch of Marvel comics. How they became TMNT was a spoof on how Matt Murdoch became Daredevil by getting sprayed in the eyes with toxic waste. The turtles drenched in the wasted and swept down a sewage drain where they mutated...along with Splinter - the rat that makes them ninjas.

What the mother F'er Michael Bay. All you needed to do was Google that shit to find out that your alien idea was one part RE and one part TARDED.

If I am annoyed by this and all I remember for certain about the series was the theme song then I can only imagine what true fans are thinking, plotting or breaking in their homes right now.
