Default First pictures; The new Turtles and Shredder

So as many of you probably know, Michael Bay is making a new Turtle movie. There has been a lot of controversy regarding this feature, as he originally stated that he wanted them to be aliens, but changed his mind after a epic internet backlash. Now only the slime is of alien origin.

Regardless, people have been pretty sour about this whole ordeal - That is until the first images of the new Turtles and Shredder hit this morning:

Turtles


Shredder


I have to say I really like the look he's going for - Especially Shredder who look badass! I am looking forward to seeing how William Fichtner will portray him, but the visuals are down, no question about it.

Enjoy!

Shredder. Hell yes!

Turtles, um not so much. I may change my mind as they might grow on me, but the fact is the movie will probably 98% explosions and ineffectual gunfire, 1.5% dialogue and 0.5% plot.

You missed out shaky cam and shit attempts at humour.

Like in transformers, wheelie trying to hump megan fox's leg. Or Devastator having robot testicles. Or shoehorning attempts at masterbation jokes in. Or trying to make Jar Jar Binks in robot form (skidz and mudflap, I'm looking at you)

I like the look he's going for with the characters in this so thats something up on transformers at least. I really hope this is a good movie.

Fixed

I'm just glad Mr. Bay heard the cry of true Turtle fans and changed them from...aliens back to turtles. But he's giving the ooze alien origin, so there will be aliens in it obviously.

Here's a shot of Megan Fox as April standing next to one of the turtles.

Ol Chrome Dome looks pretty badass. Dont see how the samurai gimmick applies to a white boy however.

One thing I do like, when looking at the turtles, is that they even seem to have different physique and poses from each other, that compliments their mentality.

If you look at Donatello, for example, and compare him to Raphael. Donatello is pretty slim whereas Raphael is bulky as all hell. If the images are something to go by, the pose also tells us something about their personality - Raphael looks like someone who will just jump in and beat the snot out of you with his bare hands like a freakin' bear, where Donatello looks more like the typical Bruce Lee martial artist.

I really hope he does something like that - It would compliment their personalities more than they previous incarnations and would give them some spark

Donatello was always something of a pacifist in the series

Doesn't mean he wouldn't fight though

Aye, but apart from the headband there wasn't a single thing that separated the turtles in terms of appearance. That's what I like that is being changed

True.
If Donatello looks smaller compared to the sizes of the others but gets to have an epic fight to show he's just as hard, I'll be happy
