The Turtles' transformation from cult comic book characters to mega-popular cartoon superheroes began in 1987 and was overseen by writer David Wise. If you're a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chances are strong that Wise is the man you want to thank. As a writer and story editor for the original animated series, Wise was present from the show's inception to its conclusion, writing and overseeing the vast majority of the series.

The internet has not been kind to the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot. This shouldn't be surprising to you, because a) you are on the internet, and b) you have seen the footage from the 'Ninja Turtles' reboot. (True story: during a recent 'Guardians of the Galaxy' screening in New York City, the crowd loudly booed the 'Ninja Turtles' trailer.) But, star Megan Fox has a word for all of those haters. Two words, actually.
We know there are some who are still on the fence about the upcoming 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' film, but going by the awesome new footage we saw at Comic-Con 2014, this movie might surprise you. If you want to know more about the work that went into bringing your beloved childhood heroes back to the big screen, check out our interviews with star Megan Fox, director Jonathan Liebesman, and the producers, straight from San Diego.

Sachs inspires April to become a real journalist, as opposed to the celebrity beat she's currently working on. She's sitting in traffic with Vern (Will Arnett) when they see a crowd running from something inside a building in New York City.
We're just a couple of weeks out from the release of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' and we know we're going to be seeing a whole lot of those green dudes this week at Comic-Con 2014. Until then, feast your eyes upon the latest poster for the heroes on a half shell, which looks pretty darn tough.
The comedienne hit 'The Tonight Show' last night to talk about both her ever-expanding family tree and her next role in 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' plus she brought with her the first clip from the film! The results were basically riotous.
After a brief marketing stint that revealed a batch of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' posters, the new trailer for the Jonathan Liebesman-directed, Michael Bay-produced, live-action 'TMNT' movie has hit the web.
'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' is starting to ramp up their marketing and will release a new trailer this week (which will surely be in front of producer Michael Bay's new movie 'Transformers: Age of Extinction'). But as we wait for that trailer, new character posters have been released that feature Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello.
For as long as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have existed, there have been Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys. With the new movie on the horizon, Playmates revealed a first look at their new line of toys, which include the usual suspects: the turtles themselves, the scrappy reporter April O'Neil, the wise Splinter and the evil Shredder. Interestingly, the toy versions of Splinter and Shredder offer us our best look yet at the new incarnations of these characters.
Fan reaction to the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' movie has been mixed, to say the very least, and our first look at the re-imagined supervillain Shredder isn't going to change that. The arch-nemesis of the Turtles' ninja master was once one of...
