Going forward will all TMNT movies be CGI? What are the options?

Yeah, I think TMNT movies going forward will be done in CGI, the rubber suits don't cut it any more due to limited mobility.

If they're like the last couple, why would it even matter? They're not doing ninjitsu or even fighting.

The new TMNT movies need a director who can shoot martial arts, and they need a good fight choreographer.

I've seen Twitter bots that create more fitting responses.

I really wish that if live-action, it could be practical effects primarily for the Turtles and slight CGI if needed. Seriously, the over usage of CGI cheapens film to me. It may be easier to shoot and may even be gorgeous to look at, but if too obvious, it gets irritating.

It's wishful thinking, but I wish that in terms of fighting, we could get something akin to Spider-Man 2 or 3. Blend CGI with practical effects, allow the costumes to be light so we can get great fighting. Alas, unless there's a team that can properly handle it, CGI will dominate.

I think we could easily go back to 100% CGI, like in the 2007 film, so effects would become easier.

Gotta say, I wouldn't be against going the all animated route but I can't see them doing it as Western audiences tend to view animated movies as for kids and that could be perceived by the studio as reducing the film's box office potential.

Really the 3 things they need to get right are characters, story and tone. If they can do that then it should be a good movie regardless of the medium.
