Michael Bay’s TMNT and “Alien Origins”

Coming Soon is reporting that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, produced by Michael Bay, will make the Turtles aliens. Here’s the quote they are reporting on:

“When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie. These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable.”

Now, you can take that literally, like they did. Or you can look at it in context. Alien race doesn’t mean from another planet, he could just be saying that they’re alien to the audience, which makes sense. On the other hand, if he DOES mean their Alien aliens, and they’re not mutants from an accident that live in a sewer. We will be having a talk, Mr. Bay.
