Stewart voices TMNT

Dec. 20, 2006by: Mike Sampson

Sooo apparently Shredder isn't the bad guy in the upcoming NINJA TURTLES movie? I'm not sure I dig that choice, but I do dig this choice - bringing in Patrick Stewart to voice the new villain. He has, according to SuperheroHype, signed on to voice the new baddie Max Winters. Hmmm, that name doesn't quite have the ring to it that Shredder does but OK. Winters "goes mad after he was wrongfully fired and begins amassing an army of ancient monsters" and it's up to the TMNT to stop them. So if Shredder is dead in this film, why not bring in Krang or one of the other weirdo villains from the cartoon? I guess it would be hard to make a living, talking brain look realistic. So far this is the first bit of major voice casting for the film though it has been confirmed that Corey Feldman won't be returning and I think we can all be thankful for that. TMNT hits theaters next March.

Dude,you're a fucking dork. How mature can you be about giant,talking turtles that practice martial arts and fight evil superhuman enemies. The CG animation looks great and there's a nostalgia factor involved, so i'll probobly check it out. Meanwhile, you can stay in your mom's basement.

More Casting News

USA Today just posted an article [link] revealing more of the cast:

"Sarah Michelle Gellar (The Grudge, and TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer) has signed on as the voice of April, the human researcher who serves as the Turtles' tech-services worker and mother figure. Fantastic Four's Chris Evans is the hockey-stick-swinging Casey Jones, and Clerks filmmaker Kevin Smith also voices a cameo as a greasy-spoon chef."

Sounds good to me thus far. This is far more A-Listy than I thought it'd be,

Sounds good to me thus far. This is far more A-Listy than I thought it'd be, anyway.

I could forgive these changes if the promise of a darker movie were true. The original fans are older. I wish we could get a direct adaptation of the original comic, or at least a movie with wider appeal (SPIDER-MAN's doing pretty well, no?). Watching the trailer, my smile quickly faded through the course of the long belch-shot... "More mature 'Turtles' movie" my a**.

Man, I really dont' like the idea that they're making a new villian for this movie.. it would be fuckin awesome to see CRANG!! Maybe the sequel will be TMNT: IN DIMENSION X, oh man, that would make me cream

But Feldman rocked the role of Donatello...it's not like he doesn't need the work.
