Although the news broke recently that Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles picture was going to be put on hold for the time being (moved from Christmas 2013 to May 16, 2014. ) the guys over at Latino Review seem to have some worthwhile rumors.
One of their writers, El Mayimbe, divulged recently Via Twitter, that he has gotten his hands on the most recent script of Ninja Turtles, and while reading it, decided to let the fans know of some juicy details.

While the source still may not be 100%, it is worth noting that this guy recently broke the news (which was later confirmed by Marvel) that Marvel Studio’s mystery 2014 film was to be Guardians of the Galaxy. So I’m not saying this news is legit, but his credibility is pretty good right now.
Its interesting to see that for a movie that was so hated by fans just for the following comment made by Michael Bay a few months ago:
“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.”
When that comment hit the next, fans were in an uproar. It seemed like nothing anyone could say next would change how everyone felt, but like I mentioned before, its interesting to note that for a movie so hated by fans just for this one comment, its script is full of things that fans would geek out over. Things that none of the previous movies put into place, epically things that fans wanted in this movies.
If the rumors are true, I couldn’t care less if the Turtles discover that their origins are more tied to aliens than they originally were, bottom line, if the staff is going to these lengths just to please the fans, one tiny (understandably impactful) change is an easy price to pay.
