Megan Fox in new TMNT Movie

News broke out that went around yesterday for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie produced by Michael Bay.  On his blog he wrote the simple line of “TMNT: We Are Bringing Megan Fox Back Into The Family”  So this bit of news jumped all around, with people jumping to the conclusion that she is going to be “April O’Neil”.  The fact that she is going to be April or not is just rumor for now.  Of course that would be the leading female role in the film, so please note that until further notice of being confirmed as April, this is just a rumor.  Here is my thoughts on this subject.

TMNT Movie on Hold

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle history there has often been the promise of a new movie, with it falling through in the end.  This past year a lot of talk has been going on about the new film, which was originally promised for 2011, as 2011 rolled around we were told it was going to be released in 2012 and then it got pushed to 2013.  When people came to me asking for my thoughts about the film my main response stood at “I’m more excited about the new cartoon series by Nickelodeon in fall 2012.”  I also told people “I don’t get my hopes up about movies, until I see the movie in filming stages.”.   So was I surprised when I heard that the new Ninja Turtle Film is on hold?

Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles - The jokes

Since Michael Bay’s speech about Aliens, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans have been going crazy with all sorts of different things picking on it.  We’ve got the media picking it up to where TMZ had Robbie Rist on the show, the voice of the fans; we’ve had Conan O'Brien pick on the movie and so much more.  The hits just keep coming, though some of the best ones have been in the forum of art, be it music or drawings.  I’m going to take a little bit of time now to share some of my favorite Teenage Alien Ninja Turtle pieces that has come out in the last month of crazy Ninja Turtle news.

First, a few from people us Turtle fans all know and enjoy a head sketch Peter did for his blog about this subject.  I just found this a little head sketch picking at the notion of the Turtles as aliens.  Nice of Peter to write up a blog for the fans, seeing as how he has no control over any of what’s going on with the TMNT.      

TMNT Movie Updates

For the last week, the 15 second clip from Michael Bay talking at Nickelodeon Upfront has overshadowed anything and everything else going on Ninja Turtles.  People have been reacting out of fear from the words “The Turtles come from an Alien Race”.  As soon as I saw this clip I knew this was going to make waves, and that it did.  Fans have been speaking up from all over, fans are coming out of the shadows who we haven’t met before to say how much this news angers them.  For the past week, I’ve been waiting for someone official to say some real news to help ease the fears and anger that has crowded the fandom.
