TMNT Reboot Demands

#1 Posted by k4tzm4n (36126 posts) - - Show Bio

It seems likely we're going to get a live action TMNT movie in the next few years, so I made a "wishlist."

To summarize:

-Dark vibe like the 1990 movie.

-More attention to Mikey/Donny since they never get love.

-Human characters (April/Casey) are secondary.

-Shredder, but packed with easter eggs to establish a wide universe (Stockman, Krang, etc)

But this is a forum for the chit-chat and all that jazz, so what do you want in the next TMNT movie? 1,2,3...DISCUSS!

I'm not placing anything in mind thus far, oddly as I'm a Turtle hardcore4life. I recall the rebooted comic continuity (IDW) being assigned by Viacom when the sale was made, and automatically expect any of their upcoming properties to tie directly to it, and the character models it's establishing. Really, I already got it all as far as nostalgia was concerned with Turtles Forever. Now I'm ready for nothing less than the unexpected. I have to hand that them. They really understand the idea that in the business they're in, one must reinvent their franchise at least every five to ten years in order to keep it relevant. Mainly, since the new series hasn't hit and it's very likely that any feature film will be tied into the series, I'm at a loss of a starting point without the series having even aired yet?

I just ask that it's a little scary. These are giant talking turtles with deadly wepons, they should be able to scare children

@k4tzm4n: Kind of off topic but any idea if TMNT is supported on Digital apps?

honestly...I don't want Krang, Bebop, or Rocksteady anywhere near the movie....for me they're reminders of the crap that Hollywood turned the TMNT into....I still don't like seeing them in the new IDW series

I think they should keep the Shredder/Krang partnership, only Shredder isn't the stooge.

Krang (an Utrom) was once the ruler of Dimension X. But he was overthrown and banished to another dimension (ours). But he sabotaged the ship taking him there, and it crashed on Earth. The surviving crew tried to blend in among Earth and contacted their home dimension, eventually forming TCRI, and they're now the Utroms' research center on Earth. Krang, meanwhile, escaped and eventually met Shredder.

Now, they plan to summon Krang's ultimate weapon from Dimension X: the Technodrome.

I would like to see a fight between Slash and the TMNT, I can't imagine how big Slash would be compared to these 2014 turtles.
