As others have said, a reboot is what'll be needed, but currently, it shouldn't be done. If Out of the Shadows did poor at the box office due to the first film and other better movies at the time of its release, it's best for the films to lay low for a few years. Then, reboot it.
Agree, no TMNT movies for awhile for now. Have to let PD movies fade a little bit more into obscurity first.

I'm pretty sure they already have. At the rate cinemas have been blasting CBMs and kid movies out in the last decade, the bad ones get forgotten reaaaaaaaaally quickly.

Why not? There hasn't been an origin movie since 1990. The PD ones didn't even have one.

Hopefully, TMNT can follow the same trend...

Burton/Bannon...
enjoyable but ultimately dated

Schumacher/Bay...
a lot of disrespect to the franchise, wacky, stupid, toys

Nolan/???... a fresh new interpretation that brings the franchise back to prominence and success
Forever and &Robin were enjoyable for what it's worth...besides, everyone...chill.

I forgot that, and you're absolutely right. Man oh man, you are absolutely right.

True. Guess I'm just burnt out on origin movies in general.

...I just want to see some damn Mousers already

I'm really hoping this is the case, it would be the best case scenario....I'll hold off for our "Nolan"

Really hope so....but at the same time I wouldn't want MORE bad TMNT movies to ultimately fade into obscurity further tarnishing the franchise. I say wait for the next one for a good good while.

Like I said....even as a kid I didn't like them all too much. Maybe it's the Batman: animated series influence in me but they pushed the camp way too much even for 7 year old me lol.

I still think if a reboot is necessary, limit the origin to a flashback/recap at the beginning, then give us a film with rat king, purple dragons, and leatherhead as the enemies. heck, bring in Angel bridge/Nobody as and Radical as the TMNT's allies instead of April and Casey, and set the classic elements (April, Casey, Shredder and the foot) up for the sequels. That way we get to know the turtles first in a new story, before we begin the retread.

I second this motion, it'd be a good twist and probably has the most potential IMO.

I do know some of my friends think OOTS was better than the first and enjoyed it. Something tells me they're not going to easily fade. Considering the upcoming show, Rise, may have PD elements, it's clear it won't fade entirely yet, especially with taking jabs at them. I get that it is humor, but constantly repeating the same jokes, whether references or any form, gets old really fast.

I do wonder if Viacom could allow TMNT to air on a different station or on Netflix with a different direction at some point. It's wishful thinking on my part, but it could very well convey TMNT as more than a kid's property. It was one of the best-selling kid properties last year according to a thread about merchandise, but otherwise, not sure.

Until then, we have a long way to wait.

Honestly Netflix is the absolute dream. It'll take awhile for the OOTS Bay Turtles to fade a little bit at least, I'm still holding out on Rise though.

We'll probably get another TMNT movie somewhere between 2021-2025.

At least they'll have waited more than 3 years by then

Preferably a reboot, but if they decided to go sequel, go sequel to the original movie only, like how Jurassic Park did with Jurassic World.

I'd actually like them to continue with the original trilogy because I'd be interested to see the direction they would go in. To see the advancements in visual effects and creature design applied to a continuation of the original three movies interests me.

Leave Batman Forever alone thank you.

Also the Nolan films were overrated.

That's never going to happen. Too much poo between movie #1 and movie #6.

I would love to see this as an animated movie similar to some of DC's direct to video stuff. Bring back as many of the original cast as possible. Since it's animation, they could bring back those turtles without messing with the animatronics, and any human characters can look younger than their actors/actresses currently are. (Assuming a sequel would keep relatively close to when the original took place and not almost 30 years later like in real life.)

I love this...the DC direct video stuff is pretty good as a whole. Gives them more creative freedom too.

That's where I've been hoping they take this. A DTV animated film could cater to the hardcore fans more than a theatrical live-action film (which to make enough money have to try to extract the mainstream). And, a series of such videos in different continuities could cater to the varying tastes of different segments of the fandom.

I like that idea but don't set it 30 years into the future.
