What do you think? Is it past time, or should we get another sequel?

I liked Leonardo v. Rapheal. C'mon, it wasn't THAT bad! Plus it had that General Traag fight at the end!

Anything to avoid another movie by Zack Snyder.At least Snyder is a Mirage fan. He can't do any worse than PD.

If Zack Synder is to turning TMNT comics into movies what Zack Snyder is to turning Watchmen comics into movies... then I'm all on board for that. Though I don't know that he'd bring enough of an original vision or flavor into the mix, unless he's had some time to develop such. It would definitely pop off the screen, though.

Snyder is to poo, what poo is to poo.
Some folks like lateral movement.

If we're getting real for a minute, there's about no one I'd rather see on board for a comic adaptation less than Snyder.

He is slavishly devoted to all the wrong elements -- which is why Watchmen is a panel-for-panel, action-oriented mess rather than the story about superhero impotence the comic is. Total stylistic mismatch.

I suppose he could handle some of the early style-over-substance issues like #1, but for any of the Turtles' many more humanistic comic ventures, I'd rather take anyone else.

Some people love fads and gimmicks.

Snyder is the acid-washed pet-rock of Cinema.

I once spoke with someone who called Zack Snyder the nu metal of major studio directors, and ever since I've found that to be the most accurate way to describe him.

Puddle of Mudd totally describes his storytelling and his visual style.

I get the feeling some folks are still hard for this.

Is there a line between Nu metal and Emo?

Oh look, Snyders Krypton, complete with terrible CG :

Also has anybody stopped and thought that in the future, some kid who's new is going to be like 'hey, I wonder what people talked about way back when the PD movies were out' and they'll come here and see all these joke threads?

Didn't Marvel try to buy the TMNT property back in the early 90s? I wonder how things would be today if it had turned out that way...

The franchise would be bottom of the barrel for Marvel.

Spiderman, X-men, the Avengers would all get star support and TMNT would be this third or fourth-tier franchise Marvel owns.

Maybe it'd have been better if a company like Dark Horse o Vertigo acquired it?

Ironically, given his comments on comic books, a TMNT movie by Synder probably wouldn't be so bad.

Assuming if Batman v. Superman did any better than OotS at box office.

In terms of movies Marvel doesn't have the rights to X-Men and depending on who you believe it impacts how Marvel treats the comics which are not one of their top priorities anymore (then again I would say that was true well before the MCU was a thing).

If Marvel did own TMNT I don't think it would struggle in movies or comics.

Doesn't Marvel cancel comics that sell below 50,000 or so? IDW TMNT only sells on average 16,000-20,000 copies an issue, I don't think TMNT's sales would be much different if Marvel was doing the comic.

A TMNT comic from Marvel would likely sell better than any from IDW just by virtue of the fact of it being published by Marvel.
