Yeah for once this is some reasonable damage control. I mean it might happen, it might not happen, and there is some evidence to go off of, but running around pretending a hypothesis/rumor is confirmed is one of my least favorite things ever. And just as infuriating is when it's implied that I give a toss either way; I will freaking say it if I do. I just hate misinformation or unconfirmed tidbits being treated as gospel.

Remember all those times people hyped themselves up over things that they never said were going to happen in the last series, only for them to blame the team for not meeting those expectations? Yeahhh.

Case in point here: "leak". Sure.

I just hope you're not disappointed if they're not humans.

I'm really interested in seeing how on Origin without Shredder turns out if thats the case.
I didn't know the mutagen will be of magic origin in "Rise of the TMNT".

I think there's a difference with a fun speculation that is taken with a pinch of salt and then taking a suggestion as gospel.
We were all off on our thoughts about the finale of 2012 but it was fun guessing, but then we actually had a speculation thread for that.

I don't know who Splinter in the new series supposed to be, but he looks like a wet fat hamster.

No he's just afraid of changes that will be so drastic that the turtles won't be 'his turtles' anymore.

Watch him freak out if Raph stays the leader for good, Shredder and the Foot never appear and the turtles get nostrils. Or Bebop not being black.

False rumors aren't being spread here and those who are believing half-serious posts deserve to be fooled. And if someone says they heard it on "twitter" or whatever it's most likely BS, the few times it was likely real there was someone with credibility backing it up even if say the first sketch wasn't the real April.

We know the turtles are different species this time around but there isn't a 100% confirmation that they're NOT human. Now, I don't think they're human so to say they aren't 100% human is also spreading false information.

Splinter being a human/rat is also another thing that's up in the air, he does seem to be a mutated Rat but we're not 100% sure and in the interview with Rob he seemed to not understand the question.

The Foot figure does seem like it's a foot figure, too big of a coincidence for him to have a random foot. But he's not named that in the press release and the foot artwork does seem really goofy to be true.

Shredder not being in the new show in the first season is mostly my educated guess but saying he "will definitely be in it" is the same thing.

My point is...I love the new Splinter.

My guess is he's a rat.

If he was a mutated human he'd stay fairly human-sized, or at least be more "animalistic human" rather than "animal doing human things" (there is a difference between the two).

That's a good point.

I see that someone actually voted "other", what exactly could that be? Is it just the wording of the options? I know that neither the IDW or PD origins fit into the "Mutated Hamato Yoshi" or "Yoshi's pet" definitions, even if they're still variations. Or does it imply some other, more radical deviation? Like he's a supernatural creature created by the Rat King or something?

If he was not a human, he's a thot.

I accept no silliness like pet rat mimicking its owner turned to ninja master.

What is Splinter? Based on the design, I'd say a Ren and Stimpy character.

Hmmm.... the turtles being human originally is an interesting topic of speculation though.

Although it does make my bones shudder thinking they would go with this approach because they have already butchered enough of the story in this series in my opinion... I would strangely almost prefer them being originally human to being originally turtles. That being said that is if (and only if) the purpose is to explain them being brothers of blood relation. It would then make way more sense that they are different species of turtles going in that direction.

To me it's more important that they are originally brothers then that they were originally turtles.

As far as Splinter goes... I have slowly been acclimating somewhat to the turtle's new designs, but Splinter... ain't gonna happen. Someone had it right when they said he looks like a Ren and Stimpy character.
