In all seriousness, it's fine. When I read Rogen was attached I was immediately defending the movie here. Rogen of years back is hysterical in his movies, in front of the camera and writing wise. And smart. Clever. And again, look at stuff like Preacher and The Boys, TV shows with his fingerprints all over... great stuff. So there was the kernel of hope that maybe he was secretly a TMNT fan, maybe even a fan of the Mirage flavored Turtles. I didn't know. Nobody knew.

Anyway, now we know. He isn't. He is into the tons of mutants, wackiness and pizza type TMNT fluff. Which again, is fine. It just means it isn't for me, and I'm sure I won't be missed. So the designs we're seeing... why not? It's all fine for what they're going for.
The year is 2022 - Studio plants have reached a new level of sophistication, incorporating nuance, subliminal messaging, and reverse psychology in their repertoire, combined in a potent mix, meant to beat the mind into submission before leading it into an ultimately obedient excitement for product.

They're hiding in plain sight.

I saw the pic but the link is broken, hence me asking if it is indeed a legit picture.

The reason glasses are stupid is it feels like a very dated stereotype from literally the 80's when "all nerds wore glasses."

I mean how is this a thing in the 2020's? Most nerds/geeks these days do NOT wear glasses, and it feels like such an outdated stereotype. And this is besides the point giving a Turtle glasses is stupid to begin with.

Well TMNT was around in the 80s when nerds wear glasses, So I guess they thought, Since the TMNT came out in the 80s, Donnie will wear glasses to represent 80s nerd culture.

Well... I speak for anyone who is able to see the Technodrome for what a dead weight it is, both in-universe and as a plot device.

Funny how theatrical and live-action Splinters always start out as rats. I thought for sure with the Wingnut and Technodrome art that this one would have Yoshi turn into Splinter this time but I guess not. Not that I'm complaining, I've stated before why I prefer this origin for him.

Which is wrong. Because they're not "human". And they shouldn't even want to be.

I constantly get the feeling that a lot of people would like "Ninja Turtles" better if, somehow, they actually weren't turtles. Since there's this constant and irritating push to further and further "humanize" them.

I know this style won't work for everyone but I adore it. Wish we could have seen Baron return to the franchise instesd of this.

I've always found the outsider aspect of tmnt interesting. Both from a biological perspective, like in "Sons of the Silent Age", or from a lonely, social aspect.

Seeing them mimic human culture is interesting and makes sense to me. They take the language, the entertainment, the culture...I think they'd wear articles of clothing, for protection, if nothing else.

I'd be interested to see a movie where they drop the 'teenage' from the title. Just call it "Mutant Ninja Turtles" or "Ninja Turtles". It helps differentiates it from just calling it the same title over and over.

Archie Comics sorta did that once when they did a storyarc focusing on the Turtles in the future. It was called Cyber Samurai Mutant Ninja Turtles. Then of course there was Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation

That's true, I remember that.

No, the movie was called "TMNT: New Generation." Similar to "The Next Mutation" but hardly the same.

The tentative plan had the comic lasted at Image was to just draw a big "X" over the "Teenage" in the title if they had another birthday.

Turtles in their adult years, I've always been a fan of just "Ninja Turtles." Neat, clean.

No wait, wasn't The Next Mutation going to be about the Turtles and Splinter developing powers? It was even on Peter Laird's blog.

The movie? Yeah, one of those awful sounding incarnations of movie #4. But it wasn't called "The Next Mutation" at any point. Though I guess in speaking in broad terms about "movie #4," TNM (the show) really was the final form of it.

Some of the initial press releases and interviews with Kevin talked about how NT:TNM (the show) would be about the Turtles' "continuing mutation" but unless that was planned for season 2 or otherwise then we were lied to.

Here was all the news about 4 when I was following up on it and investigating 20 years ago:

I agree with you 100% on the outsider aspect. And absolutely, they should try to do their version of it (like, amalgams of what they THINK society is), wrongly, "a little off," in their spare time or when they're with April and/or Casey. It's extremely endearing... the whole trying to be a small part of a society that they know, deep down, they never can be a part of. It's sad. It's tragic.

But no. On the regular? Splinter would (and should) slap the f*** out of them if they came to their daily trainings wearing accessory crap. The buck would stop there. Immediately. In any kind of TMNT project that's not a farce or an all out comedy.

It looks pretty good, outside of muttface Raphael.

I can imagine a version of Splinter that cares about that sort of thing and also one which is unconcerned with it, as long they stay in the shadows and continue their training. Maybe there's nothing wrong with a little self expression, if it doesn't get them into trouble.
Whether Splinter cares isn't the crux for me, but it's a fair point.

I just agree that there is a juicy and tragic element to the idea of them mimicking human culture. It's not about us wanting them to be humans, obviously. Quite the opposite.

Right?
What's sad is that it looks like the PD movies were possibly influenced by this art, down to the snow covered action scene, but botched them into oblivion. Now the turtles looking anything like this is sort of associated with the PD films.

Right on cue this kind of stuff drops when I've got one of the most busy kind of work weeks of the year and I'm not on here... So, late to the discussion. Saw the pics in passing on my phone though. (I use the forum via computer and no memory of the login off hand.) The glasses are a big no from me. Can we maybe stop doing that? And if those were braces I saw on Leo... yeah, as stand alone art its cute, but as designs for an actual movie (that might spin off into more?) maybe lets not do that either and accept the fact that they probably wouldn't have access to eye and dental care?

Otherwise though... eh, I don't hate it.

Not that final designs aren't usually different than concept art anyhow, but so far this is at least visually acceptable for the most part.
