Kevin Eastman at least is looking to make Ninja Turtles IV as dark a film as possible. Does this mean much? It may not, as Kevin is quoted as saying "the stories are written with a much harder older edge" in regard to the goofy campfest that was Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. Since elements from "City at War" are being used in the script, it seems to be set to be more realistic and yes, dark. The target rating is PG-13.
We could only wish. I don't think we'll ever see a script like that make it to the big screen. We had a chance before Nick bought the rights, back when Mednick from 300 was on board...of course, PL to the rescue...HA.

Yeah, this is one of those times when I can honestly say that Kevin Munroe's TMNT movie -- while horrible in its own right -- was much better than anything we were going to get previous to it. Pretty much everything I've read or seen about TMNT IV pre-Munroe movie was spectacularly awful.

That's the site I came across over ten years ago when I was just a kid. Amazing that the person who ran it (Andrew) is still around, and still an important member of the TMNT fandom.

from here.

I remember visiting ninjaturtles.com back in 1997, the site was crap back then with no real info on it, but there were always movie rumors posted on the site.

I think Venus might have become much more well known if she had appeared in a movie.

As it is now, Venus and the Next Mutation could be quietly swept under a rug because of how short-lived that show was. But if she appeared in a movie? Not so much.

People still remember Batman and Robin, don't they? With Arnold as Mr. Freeze and Batman's credit card and Robin being a dick.

Ah childhood, how easy it was to actually like bad shows/movies back when I was young!

It's probably the only reason I can actually watch Batman+Robin and Next Mutation today, on some level they make me feel like a kid again, even though I know how bad they are.

So I am curious why was the 4th live action never produced? Was it due to lack of direction, was it due to the cancellation of Next Mutation? Was it due to the fall of TMNT??

Because the studio kept bringing forth crap/hack scripts and Peter and Kevin kept vetoing them, over and over again. Too bad they didn't veto the Munroe script too.

Because Hollywood doesn't work that way and they're not screenwriters (and they weren't bankrolling the movie themselves). That said, at one point Peter Laird himself DID do up a 20 page treatment to steer them on the right track but it was ignored entirely and they just had to go back to vetoing the horrible scripts they'd get.

I remember when the "Batman and Robin" movie came out, I was jealous that Batman had 4 movies and TMNT had only 3....and was hoping the 4th TMNT movie would come out so they would be, "tied."

Yes, that is what I thought as a kid.

Dumb question, but did anything ever mention a bandana/headband color for Kirby? You think something as major as introducing another turtle would have a color in mind pretty early, especially if it was planned for toys.

No clue, but I would assume white or black.

Awesome article, had never seen more than half of this stuff and I'm glad I got a chance to now.
Some of the artwork was pretty cool, but it all just leaves me thinking what if?
