You know what, I take what I can get. I love both the new movies. Looking forward for what they have planned for TMNT in the future.

Not on here. I've seen people get pissed off that others enjoyed the PDTMNT films.

* Megan Fox neither helped nor hurt these movies. Of all the things to complain about these movies she shouldn't even make the Top 20. Probably not even the Top 30. Stop acting like both films were somehow wrecking balled by her... they weren't, they were already FUBAR.
* Stephen Amell isn't bad, but they apparently didn't give him anything to do and Officer Casey Jones quintessentially isn't Casey Jones.
* Yes, the designs are god awful though even with the designs intact, had these been actual TMNT movies we probably would have been able to swallow them.
* CyberCubed is not really upset about nostrils, that's been a part of his schtick for years now.

and...

With all this speculation of TMNT 2012 being done and this franchise finally over... what's next? I'd hate to see another origin story.

Welcome to the Technodrome, ColinStein. Beer's in the fridge and Happy Hour is on Wednesday.

I'd hate to see another origin story too, kinda like Spider-Man.

Why? TMNT 2014 barely had one, and even there it didn't bother to explain why Splinter hated or even knew Shredder. Before that, not since 1990.

That would be so awesome. Hope the alternate universe that's had it for the past 2 years is enjoying it.

You're right. There was almost no explanation of the Splinter and Shredder conflict but there was a weird watching them grow up. And those weird title names to introduce each turtle. Maybe it's just a level of respect that I don't think we're given as a viewer. Then again... we watched it, who's to say we respect ourselves?

I rather they adapt from the IDW comics.

I'm OK with them taking the reincarnation angle from the IDW comics and a few elements here and there... as long as the Bebop, Rocksteady, and Krangs are left at the door.

Actually I wanna see Bebop and Rocksteady plus Krang as well, Bebop and Rocksteady should still be the comic relief characters, but also make them more dangerous, Like how they are portrayed in the IDW comics.

Nah, pass. And you can bet no matter what shape or form the TMNT movie reboot takes... none of those clowns are going to be in it.

Oh new versions of those characters will be in a reboot no doubt, and any other characters like Leatherhead, Maybe the Mutanimals.

Highly doubtful they'd follow a failed launch of those clowns with another one. They aren't going to throw good money after bad money.

You and I both know they'll be in it. The question is, will they be done WELL?

The fact to the matter is, you'll never see a Mirage adaption, the perception of TMNT right now is the IDW Comics or the Nickelodeon series, the reboot is gonna have to cater to the new fans of those, and even those versions borrow from FW.

I would like to see them done like the IDW version, in which they like a force of nature.

Eventually, maybe. But them being in the next (rebooted) movie would be like if Nolan had made Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy the villains of Batman Begins... ass backwards.

Bebop and Rocksteady are quintessentially stupid, created for stupid lowbrow laughs and plus so Playmates could sell a rhino and warthog toy next to the Turtles. I don't mean stupid as in, "What dumb characters they are," I mean stupid is their whole schtick. That's what they trade on, and their "look." You know, just putzing around, occasionally mumbling about "da toitles" while they fall down and hurt themselves. Doing them "well," you'd have to stick with that. Making them into super serious, dangerous muscle killers or something... you CAN do that, but #1: That is emphatically NOT who they are or what they're about, you are now actively warping them to be something else and if you ARE going to do that, then... #2: Why use them at all? Just raw nostalgia for the toys or Fred Wolf cartoon? That's not an answer and that's not good enough, and by this point Fred Wolf has had more than enough "nods." Enough for a lifetime.
