Is This What The New TMNT Movie Will Look Like?

While surfing the web (cowabunga!) the other day, I came across an interesting image which was purported to be the first look at the design of both Leonardo and The Shredder in Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film due out in 2014. Of course, none of this has been substantiated, but it’s always cool when you see the rumor mills coming to life after a long bout of disinterest. Regardless of whether or not the end result will be any good, most fans have been unabashed about their hatred for how this project has been handled, which has lead to a somewhat stinted  amount of interest in discovering more information about the films. Unfortunately, this has the negative affect of keeping us all in the dark about something that most TMNT fans are at least morbidly concerned about.

As for these pictures, they appear to be only sketches which were done based on descriptions of how the characters will look in the film. With so little information being leaked about this movie, we’ll take whatever we can get! Sadly, what we’re getting here honestly doesn’t look that incredible. The sketches are definitely well done, but to what avail? Who really wants to see a version of Leonardo that looks like he just stepped off the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III and a picture of The Shredder that begs the question of exactly what happened to him after Secret of the Ooze? Wasn’t this supposed to be an origins story? Something tells me these sketches aren’t based on genuine information and therefore aren’t legitimate representations of what we can come to expect. Of course, I could be wrong, and that’s exactly why I’ve chosen to share these images with you, the fans.

These concept drawings were originally posted on the Technodrome forums, but were eventually removed for some reason. Something tells me they may have been based on descriptions from the original script, but I could be wrong. For now, we’re remaining neutral on this film, but these sketches honestly leave me a little confused about what to expect. What do you think? Are we seeing the first images that will give us some hint of what to expect from Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie directed by Jonathan Liebesman? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or spark some conversation in our new forums!

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
