Ever since it was announced Michael Bay had a hand in the film relaunch, I knew something bad would come of it!

God dammit.

Are we really gonna have to hear all this unwarranted Michael Bay hate for the next 2 years? HE DID NOT WRITE THE ****ING SCRIPT! He's not even directing. Viacom had him show off that previs stuff because he's a big name in Hollywood and they want this movie to be a success. Of course they'd rather have him pimping the movie out rather than some other dude from Platinum Dunes that no one's ever heard of in their life.

That being said, this alien business is going to really rub me the wrong way if Utroms are not involved.

Maybe Michael Bay wasnt aware of the TMNT back story and just assumed they were another race from a different planet like the Transformers LOL. I really hope this is the case or I will be very dissapointed

This thread title is very misleading, not to mention exceedingly premature. Michael Bay never said such a thing. We don't really know anything yet. Calm down.

Bay says they are "from an alien race", which could merely mean that they are the product of alien experiments, which is kind of true in the context of the comics (though it was accidental).

True. I think that the ooze that mutates them is what comes from another planet. Maybe Earth-bound turtles get "infused" with the DNA of another race that resemble humanoid turtles?

Wow there goes all hope for a good movie.

Why do talentless hacks feel the need to change things that don't need to be changed?

Quit trying to silence everyone you don't agree with! People are allowed to express their concerns.

But it's pretty painfully clear that Michael Bay operates as a producer in the same fashion that George Lucas "produces" movies like Red Tails. He basically directed that and the director was his voice box... a ton of directors operate like that and everything I've read of Bay indicates he's a guy that likes to be in control of pretty much every facet of a production.

Which isn't to say this movie will be bad because of Bay. I don't think I've ever seen a Bay movie that wasn't entertaining, except maybe the very boring and nonsensical Transformers 2.

Even though I am not a big Michael Bay fan, what he said could be interpreted a number of ways. Technically the Turtles' origins do connect directly to an alien race. Maybe he fumbled his words or really just didnt care otherwise. Seems to me he was just briefly trying to hype a future project. It is much too early to draw any concrete conclusions and go into panic mode.

And who knows, you might like that change. The new origin might not even affect the plot that much. And if you don't like it, no one's stopping you from popping the first movie in your DVD player. But I bet you peckers would like to blame Michael Bay for that too.

But again, it's very, very common for producers of Bay's stature to get their fingers into pretty much every aspect of a production he's involved in. There's a long established precedent for it in Hollywood, in fact, and Bay is not the passive type.

I was under the impression that he had next to nothing to do with the Platinum Dunes horror movies.

I don't doubt the Turtles will be aliens. They said in the link they updated the origin from the radioactive waste product.

It's bizarre and changes everything the franchise is about. Talk about a slap in the face to fans.
