TMNT's Kevin Eastman says that the Ninja Turtles movie will have everything the fans want
This should not come as a surprise to you, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle co-creator, Kevin Eastman is still praising the upcoming movie produced by Michael Bay.
When talking to Comic Book Resource about the direction that TMNT is taking for the IDW comic series, Eastman was also asked about how it was going, and if there will be any continuity from the present comic:
One of the things that's awesome about the relationship I've had with Platinum Dunes and Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman and some of the producers, Scott Mednick and Galen Walker on the series, is that It's probably amusing to a lot of people what the press puts out there and what they say people behind the scenes really want to do with the movie, but [Platinum Dunes'] main goal is actually to make the best possible "Turtles" movie with respect to the fans and the core audience as possible. We've learned from movies like "The Avengers," which to me was a superhero movie so good to me personally that I practically wept. It was perfect, you know what I mean? That's the stuff that I grew up on. Joss Whedon just knocked it out of the park, the whole team did, and that includes choreographing all the interlocking movies. From everything that I've seen in the ["TMNT"] script and the development and everything they've asked my input on specifically, it's gonna be an awesome, familiar, solid "Turtles" movie. It'll have everything that fans are gonna want and then some.
Want to remain positive. Want to see TMNT on the big screen again. If it's done right by those who created the Turtles, then maybe there's a chance. I just get a little freaked out with Mr. Explosions producing, and casting Megan Fox as April. I also don't mind them taking the material to a "darker" place since the original material was darker than what we saw in the live-action movies of the 90s. Ugh, I just really love the Turtles.
