There's no way that's a ninja turtle, it has no shell & the limbs are too long.

Yeah, that's not a Ninja Turtle but wow, if not for this thread I would've missed this trailer and it's right up my alley.

It won't let me post the same image in two threads. Anyway if your interested the photo I attached in post #14 of this thread shows a slightly different view and it looks like a little more shell is showing. Reminds me some of a 2007 movie turtle.

Steven Spielberg

Fake, but anyway, it looks nothing like a Steven Spielberg film.

If Steven Spielberg directed TMNT, it would probably be like ET, April (and maybe also Irma) being a child (early primary-elementary school or whatever) befriendind the turtles...

Are we certain that the trailer didn't show us the totality of the Iron Giant's screentime in the movie?

It seems like people are setting themselves up for disappointment in this.

Yeah, we've already seen all we're gonna see of 95% of these characters. Anyone thinking otherwise is a fool.

Even if it was a ninja turtle, I think it would have a role as big as Michealangalo did in the Lego Movie.

Who is that supposed to be that the kid walks by on the left near the beginning? With the mask and the 2 swords across his back? Is that supposed to be Deadpool or Deathstroke or something?

Pretty sure its deadpool. The videos description states that deadpool will be in the movie while theres no mention of Deathstroke.

It's Deathstroke, and next to him is Harley Quinn.

About that "Turtle" it's not a Turtle, it's one of the main character's Avatar, it's just a generic Ninja, nothing more.

Yeah, I thought that was Harley. Kind of a... Arkham Knight Harley, though.

Neither, I don't think. Just another gunter (egg hunter) in the OASIS rather than an intended reference.

However, http://www.cbr.com/ready-player-one-...first-trailer/ I could be wrong. It says it's Harley and Deathstroke and their image it definitely does look like Harley, so Deathstroke would make sense.
