Michael Bay has been on the receiving end of fan outrage these past few months, after he announced that his production outfit will be remaking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and after word got out that they will be making changes to the franchise, particularly the Turtles being turned into aliens, instead of mutants. However, Bay has recently provided another update on the subject, in a move that may see some fans finally giving his vision a chance:
“There was that quote saying that we’re making them aliens,” says Bay. “We’re not. It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press.
“I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.”
Bay has also decided to provide some much needed update on Transformers 4, revealing that we may end up seeing a bunch of new stuff as far as the transformer designs are concerned.
“There’s some really cool shit in it,” says Bay. “I’m literally redesigning every character, top to bottom. There’s a reason why they’re redesigned, but it’s also to keep it new and fresh to me. I think the fans will appreciate some of this new stuff we have in the movie and some of the new characters.”
