TMNT 2013 Movie: Michael Bay, What the Shell?

Michael Bay has decided to uproot some TMNT origins by tweaking a certain Turtle-based topic, from Mutant Ninja Turtles, to Alien Ninja Turtles.

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

The video of said quote is below:

Michael Bay Talks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I thought this was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? The one thing that made the series even plausible for walking talking turtles? Now they’re going to be some kind of alien race from another planet? Oh I can hear the jokes now, little green men, Michael Bay what the Shell are you doing??

The idiocy is just vibrant in the statements he presented, TANT?? Tant?? Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles?? Ladies and Gentlemen, fellow Mutant Ninja Turtles fans, we have a serious problem that needs to be corrected and I for one am completely disgusted as to how the owners of the TMNT franchise are working the series. This needs to stop, the fans of TMNT could do a far better job than the actual owners-what does this tell you fans? We need to get this error corrected, it’s unbelievable how badly they’re messing this up. So long TMNT, here comes the new Alien schtick! So there’s an Alien race of turtle people? Turtles that originate from our planet? Oh geez, and now they’ll have mum’s and dad’s flocking about on that planet? It’s no longer a special thing for them to be mutant, now they are an entirely different race from the humans? The stupidity is turning the TMNT world upside down, we need to stop this! What happens to Master Splinter then? Will HE be a mutant? How did they crash land on Earth? Or did they? Master Splinter appeared when? Does he have his own race? Is the Turtles Alien race decimated? This is a cruel blow, fans get up off your haunches and stop the stupidity!
