OK this isn't a real miracle (not that I think they exist) but it's still remarkable given Bay's track record. From this IGN article, Bay commented on some news about his Ninja Turtles and Transformers 4 movies. Here's his Ninja Turtles news
"There was that quote saying that we're making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We're not. It's the ooze! It's from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they're going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great."
Well at least he isn't making aliens out of the Turtles. But with one step forward, Bay takes a mile's step back. Here's his quote on Transformers 4
"You know there are a couple of historians of Transformers," he said. "I would do my designs of the robots and they're like, 'What if you just add a little bit more ears to Optimus?' But they're really hands off. We've redesigned them in Transformers 4, and there's some really cool s*** in it. I'm literally redesigning every character, top to bottom. There's a reason why they're redesigned, but it's also to keep it new and fresh to me. I think the fans will appreciate some of this new stuff we have in the movie and some of the new characters."
So not much has changed. But at least we have confirmation the TMNT will no longer be aliens. Whether the film will be any good that's another story. What do you Viners think of this?
By the way, this is just a temporary article until the staff get wind of it.
