Back right before 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' came out, director Michael Bay said several times that he wasn't going to touch the Autobots or the Decepticons ever again once the trilogy was completed. Well, the trilogy is done and here we are on the heels of yet another Michael Bay 'Transformers' movie. But that's not the big news.
Thank goodness Michael Bay's next project still takes place in the age of gunpowder, otherwise the director's first TV foray would be dreadfully devoid of explosions. But if Michael Bay really is to take to TV for a new Starz series, what classic story might the upcoming 'Black Sails' draw its inspiration from, how will it manage to incorporate giant robots?
We all know the controversy surrounding the 'Ninja Turtles' reboot being produced by Michael Bay. Bay himself has said they're expanding the origin of the Ninja Turtles and went so far as to say they were an "alien race" which caused millions of sewer dwelling pizza eaters to throw their pepperoni up in the air and cry foul. Now a new player has been added to the mix.
Will fans joyously yell "Cowabunga!" or finally give up on the franchise entirely?
Let the fan backlash continue. It appears that there might be a couple more changes going to the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot which includes chopping down the brand name once more. One of the best traits about the turtles was the fact that they were young, wide-eyed, pizza loving teenagers who still didn't entirely know how the world works. It may be time to throw all of that into the garbage can.
Yesterday the Internet was in a complete uproar, but not over the news that Platinum Dunes was going ahead with a 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot (we're used to that already especially since the last time they did that was with a CGI animated movie back in 2007). No, fans were fuming over the fact that producer Michael Bay wanted our favorite pizza loving turtles not to be mutated but aliens from another world, thus deleting the "mutant" in their title. After all of the crazy complaining online about the sudden decision to alter the Ninja Turtles' origin story, Michael Bay told fans to take a chill pill. What exactly did he say?
Ever since Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird first created the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' in their comics around 1984, fans still can't get enough of the pizza loving abnormal reptilians and their Turtle Power. Just think about how cool the story sounded when kids first heard of the television show. You have a bunch of large turtles fighting crime with the help of a large rat. There's no way that doesn't sound totally cool. However, this time the big twist isn't whether or not this will be animated or live-action. Producer Michael Bay gave away what'll make these turtles a bit different the third time around.
