Jennika in the next Platinum Dunes movie?
 
http://bcsr.rutgers.edu/wp-content/u...FocusGroup.jpg

Does anyone else think Platinum Dunes might be seeing all the interest being piqued about Jennika over in IDW going, "Reeeeally? A female Turtle and most people don't seem to hate it this time? Innnnteresting."

Jester 07-11-2019 11:12 PM

but then they'll get it wrong, not world build to get there, and just gender swap a turtle....probably Donna-Tello.

Wildcat 07-11-2019 11:18 PM

I don’t read the comics and only came across the character the other day. I don’t know anything about her.

I’ve always liked the idea of adding another turtle though and I actually liked Venus so if they did that’d be cool to me.

Shark_Blade 07-11-2019 11:32 PM

She’s gonna be the main character and the rest will take a backseat isn’t it?

Galactus 07-12-2019 08:11 AM

Can't see it myself.

For all the talk that the first Platinum Dunes movies took their main inspiration from the IDW series it didn't ever seem like that in the finished product. The one thing which was kinda like that series (the lab origin) we know has been kicking around the minds of Hollywood execs that have handled the property for years before IDW had the TMNT license. I'd be willing to bet it was largely a coincidence. They may have been aware of the IDW series lab origin but they clearly didn't feel any reason to make their version anything like it.

So yeah they haven't followed the IDW series and I don't think they are going to start now.

Even for the sake of diversity Michael Bay and the guys and PD have never struck me as people all that concerned with that. If anything I'd imagine Bay would use his influence to go the other way. Like these are the kind of guys that made a big stink anout how Arcee was too difficult to explain in the first Transformers movie (why would she need any more than explaining than the male Autobots?) and I know people think Fichtner-Shredder was to appease Chinese market/investors but I could easily see Bay thinking do we have to cast a Japanese actor? Why can't we just make him a white guy? That'd be much easier.

From a creative standpoint she'd have to be saved for a sequel and world building is not something Bay and co do. Neither PD movie hinted were the next would go and they pretty much ditched everything from the 2014 for Out Of The Shadiws. At best I could see that instead of Karai we get a blonde second in command of the Foot that only says a few lines and is never named in the actual movie that is supposed to be Jennika and I doubt we'd ever see her mutate into a turtle.

CyberCubed 07-12-2019 09:47 AM

Even the whole reincarnation aspect IDW came up with that I forget exists half the time was never used anywhere else. Hell IDW’s Turtles are technically humans turned Turtle, something people would have seen as shark jumping material in any other version.

No, not technically. If I reincarnated into an eagle, and then the eagle mutated into a big eagle, that doesn't mean I am "technically human turned eagle." It means I am an eagle that mutated big, who in a previous life was a human.

IndigoErth 07-12-2019 10:50 AM

Oh dear. Uh... no thanks?

Being THAT company however and how Bay clearly likes to shove his ideas in there even if he's "just a producer"... it's like you just automatically know in what ways it would be bound to go wrong. There's no way in hell that Bay & Co. wouldn't try their damnedest to ensure that she's sexy to their supposed target audience.

Spoiler:
But... that would kinda make me giggle a lot when plenty of male fans/viewers are feeling sorta awkward about noticing. :tlol:


And I REALLY don't care to watch any of the boys being made to be drooling over her. Please no.

If they did bring her in, I request there be a large enough age difference to kind of put a stop to going in that direction. Either she's too old for them OR maybe bump the guys up into their 20s and maybe she's a new "little sister" who has come along and is just in her teens. Too young for them, accepted as a sister, and maybe go with the slimmed down design some of the concept art had for the guys before they decided to make them so much bigger in the films.

Galactus 07-12-2019 03:18 PM

To be fair that would entirely depend on whether Bay finds the idea of female anthropomorphic turtle potentially sexy. I have a feeling Bay aint that freaky.

I could be wrong though...come to think of it that Blue Door script had Michelangelo hook up with a female turtle that just came out of nowhere so maybe it's not that far fetched.

Andrew NDB 07-12-2019 03:26 PM

On thing's for certain: Platinum Dunes would bring back shell boobs for sure.

Yeah, but Bay thinks the nerds are. He put balls on a Transformer, remember?

Really? And this female turtle was nameless?

It was a whole planet of mutant Turtles.

The "Blue Door" script was tripping balls on some serious street smack.

Also, whoever wrote it didn't understand what "hate fvck" means. :tlol:

Sounds like a very bad fic. Hopefully "Blue Door" script was just a joke.

It wasn't, amigo.

We didn't dodge a bullet; the bullet that is Platinum Dunes still hit us. Twice.

But we dodged getting mowed down by heavy-caliber automatic weapons fire.

Their Turtles didn't -- they can take heavy-caliber automatic weapons fire straight to the skin no problem!

Aw geez, I forgot about that stupidity.

And people say Megan Fox was the worst part of the PD TMNT movies. :trolleye:

IndigoErth 07-12-2019 04:03 PM

I'm not even sure how to vote... I'm somewhere between rotflolcopter, "Um...what?" and "dear god, no."

Though the fact that whatever PD does is probably bound to be bat crap crazy anyhow, I'm almost willing to throw caution to the wind and just say do it, just to see what the hell happens.

Actually, if it's the same part I'm thinking of, I think it was "eye f***" when Leo and Raph get into a tiff in the back of a (moving?) van. :lol: No... no that is not a term for just glaring at each other!

That script was really something else.

Some of it's descriptive writing was decent in some of the fantastical elements (lord knows it would have been dumbed down for a film though), but the alien concept and how they ended it was depressing, so no thanks.

Yeah, that was it. Eyefvck, my bad.

It was Leo "eyefvcking" Raph, and the writer meant for it to be glaring... but that is NOT what that word means. NOT. AT. ALL.

Shredder was an alien. Turtles were aliens. Planet of Turtles. What a ride.

IndigoErth 07-12-2019 04:22 PM

I believe I found it here if anyone is interested in reading Blue Door again, or for the first time.

I had to go hunt down that lovely excerpt from it.

Quote:

Casey charges back to the trailer, where he furiously SWINGS
OPEN the U-Haul Doors —

THE TURTLES FREEZE IN POSITION - Raph with Leo in a headlock.
Don grabbing Raph's leg. And Mikey pulling at Leo's waist.

Casey notices The Turtles have moved around April's
furniture, TRANSFORMING THE U-HAUL INTO A MOBILE LIVING ROOM .

CASEY (CONT'D)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but...
don't Ninjas pride themselves on
being stealth ? And undetectable ?

DONATELLO
In all fairness, it's been a while
since we've had a proper meal.
Check this one off to low blood
sugar .

Casey SLAMS the door shut.

Raph releases Leo. Don and Mikey standing between them as
the Turtles catch their breath. After a beat, Leo, while eye-
f***ing Raph
, addresses Mikey:
Just kills me. :tlol:

If one Turtle had to be gay it would probably be Donatello.

He wears a purple bandana which is a highly recognized gay color. He's also usually in most universes the most understanding, polite and quiet. Leonardo and Raphael definitely give off the macho, "toxic masculinity" vibe, and Mikey just seems like a free-spirit but probably straight. Don seems to be the most likely to "swing this way" if you know what I mean.

But not Fred Wolf Donatello. I see him as very different than all the others due to how assertive he was and what a large temper he had.

IndigoErth 07-13-2019 05:49 PM

So straight guys can't have those qualities...?

Also not sure you even understand what "toxic" means, as none of the Turtles are.

The-Shredder 07-13-2019 06:14 PM

One of the historical reasons as to why you don't see a lot of people wear purple is because such colors and fabrics were mostly accessible to the nobility or wealthy classes in premodern times. Plain, monochrome colors are the norm nowadays to give the impression that one is serious and professional, as well as that they are easier to maintain. Purple and pink were also in style in the 80s and 90s, and many still wear those colors today.

Nonsense. You don't have to go more than the first 15 issues or so into Mirage (i.e., the source material) to have Donnie being lovestruck over an alien woman.

In fact, an argument could be made that he's the first Turtle to actually exhibit an actual attraction to... anyone.

Well, Peter said on his blog that it could also be interpreted as only mutual respect.

Original TMNT Cartoon Fan 07-14-2019 06:37 AM

The problem is she isn't that well-known. Let her appear in a couple of cartoon episodes first, and give her an action figure.

IndigoErth 07-14-2019 09:23 AM

I assume we're talking Jhanna?

While in most cases I tend to feel that people read a lot into stuff that they want to be there, this one though...? Yeah, if you're clutching her braid and hanging onto the moment just a minute longer, guy there's no way you aren't swooning at least a little. :D :D

It's a shame she hasn't appeared more or at least got an actual arc in the 2003 series.

IndigoErth 07-14-2019 12:47 PM

Yes, I know she's the original topic, that it aught to get back to, but she wasn't the current discussion. (I mean Jhanna is an alien warrior, not a Turtle, so that's rather hard to mix up.)

Original TMNT Cartoon Fan 07-14-2019 03:48 PM

Sadly, we will get a lot of

Jennika was not in TMNT during the late-1980's and early-1990's. My childhood has been ruined?

But it shouldn't prevent anything.

IndigoErth 07-14-2019 05:46 PM

At this rate, since it's just PD and we're in an era with a cartoon that already said "screw it" to everything important... ya know what, so long as the boys are properly represented personalty/behavior-wise, what the hell, just throw in whoever you want; the new Turtle girl, Venus too so she's not just the token girl in the room, Usagi, Leatherhead, etc... :tlol: (But that would be one hell of a budget.)

Coola Yagami 07-14-2019 09:19 PM

The comic book fans barely know who Jennika is, let alone the casual fan. That's a big no. They'd sooner bring back 'Jennika' but call her Venus.

Donnie also gets kissed by Mae West in the Savanti Juliet arc, then after he passes out she complains about how she had just swapped "Turtle Spit" with him.

All the other turtles are confronted by Male figures.

Raph is confronted by Robert E. Howard (the author of Conan the Barbarian)

Michelangelo is ambushed by Bruce Lee

and Leonardo faces off against his namesake Leonardo Da Vinci
