A Shared Movie Universe?

I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but this is something that's been on my mind for quite a while, aforementioned something being whether not a shared TMNT movie universe a la the MCU or the DCEU would work. I mean, when you think about it, there are plenty of characters that could be established and have their own little spin-offs built around them, and after OOTS, I think it might be time to do something to shake things up a bit to keep audiences interested. If course, this also might not be that great of a idea given what's been happening with the DCEU as of late, but I believe it might be worth a shot. Thoughts?

it would have been pretty cool to have the Bay Turtles as "the" universe for the movies.

I could definitely see crossovers with GI Joe and Transformers (which IDW already did).

Too bad though, since a third one is unlikely.

Another reboot will hopefully establish a new universe for the movies.

How about hell no? Besides, they have no one to crossover with. There are no other major Mirage series for them to crossover into. This isn't like Marvel or DC where they have tons of different comic series. Unless you want the Nick TMNT to crossover with Spongebob and the other Nicktoons.... but no. Just no.

With both DC and Marvel, characters had already been established as existing in a shared universe. True, IDW has made crossovers with TMNT and Ghostbusters and they mingled with the Power Rangers once, but those are isolated instances. Meanwhile, it was not uncommon for Marvel characters to team up.

TMNT is pretty self contained.

They could do a Playmates cinematic universe and fight the Toxic Crusaders, Dick Tracy, and various incarnations of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Totally, the TMNT movie series could relaunch, then a Fugitoid series, then a Gizmo series, then a Bioneers series, then a Justice Force series ala Guardians of the Galaxy, then a big Avengers type crossover movie series begins that crosses them all over while they take on Galactose!

Wait, no. That's a horrid idea. Would never and should never happen.

I wasn't necessarily referring to other Mirage series but characters in the TMNT mythos. Like a Shredder movie or a Bebop and Rocksteady movie.

^Ditto! A Bebop and Rocksteady movie is definitely something I do not want to exist.

I think people are getting too excited with the "Shared Universe" popularity created by the MCU and don't realize it's not that easy. If the reboot TMNT movies couldn't even get to a third entry why would they try to make a universe out of it?

Also people are mistaking why it worked for say Marvel, if you think about it all these superheroes were their own comic series' and eventually they had crossovers, same with DC or say the Universal Monsters. You had many A-listers who could handle their own book later set in the same universe. TMNT is the only "A-lister", anyone else getting a spin-off (as cool as a Casey Jones movie would be) does not make it a "cinematic universe" it would just be a spin-off that have been popular way before Marvel even started making movies. So the question is more of a "should TMNT have spin-off movies?" well I'd love it but if the main heroes can't hit it big the minor characters certainly won't.

No thanks, man.

IDW's got that generally covered with their various mini-series', so you've got that at least.

A third movie could cross over with Usagi, since he's been established as existing in the same universe.

Even if a third movie was being made I'd highly doubt Stan would trust Platinum Dunes with handling Usagi well enough to allow them to use him.

And I echo what others have said. A TMNT Shared Movie Universe would not work at all.

I think studios should try and make a really great TMNT film first before they jump the gun into all the possibilities of a shared universe.

Don't wanna end up like WB/DC....

Yeah, leave the whole shared universe thing to the professionals. All the Marvel copycats have been anywhere from uninspired to wretched.

And if Hollywood can't figure out a DC comics universe... jesus.

NO. Stan Sakai would never stain his wonderful creation by having it be with those abomination TMNT.
Also, if they couldn't even make it to a third movie, how would they make a shared universe?

What? There is no TMNT universe where Usagi exists in the same universe as them. That's not even possible. Unless there's like, entire continents with humanoid rabbits and dogs and such roaming around with swords in some TMNT universe.

At this point most people would probably probably settle for a good TMNT film, or a middling one.
