Since the mid 1980s the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been some of the most universally popular superheroes on the globe. Like so many the world over, some of my most vivid memories of childhood involve the Turtles. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are such a fond memory that I intend to share my TMNT knowledge with my children one day. Now, Michael Bay is planning to fundamentally change our beloved Turtles with a live-action movie. I'll just quote him directly- "When you see this movie, kids will 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 lovable." - Michael Bay
Aliens? Really? He seems to think that he can simply smear his ego on anything sacred and make it better! Sure there have been many TMNT movies, comics, videogames, toys, etc. Not all have been very good, but none of them outright spit in the face of the source material for seemingly no reason at all. I don't care who he his. He can't be allowed to go around taking steamy dumps on the world's cherished childhood memories! This is like taking Mickey Mouse and saying that from now on he's going to be an edgy ant eater from outer space, just because...
If you care about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or the sheer audacity of this ridiculous man enrages you like it does me, then PLEASE sign. If this movie is made there will sequels, spin-off shows, and toys. This blight on our childhood WILL endure if we let it. Thanks in advance for your support. Also- KEVIN EASTMAN and PETER LAIRD, if you're out there please make your voices heard. Michael Bay is about to turn your creations into a joke in one fell swoop. Don't let it happen!
