After Michael Bay made is fateful statement about making the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles aliens, my best estimate is that about 87% of the internet has been consumed by nerd rage over the topic. Since Saturday we’ve seen a steady stream of reactions, from actors and actresses to one of the original creators as well as multiple comments here and on our Facebook. The Above image (by Bobby Rubio via The Uniblog) is a great representation of how most seem to feel about the subject.
Since the flames don’t seem to be dying down anytime soon, we’ve rounded up some more, including some amusing sketches from TMNT comic book artist Jim Lawson so buckle in ’cause it’s going to get a bit rough. Hit the jump for more.
Jim Lawson: “After a generations old war between their species draws to a close, the Shredulonians and the Turtles bring their latest battle to Earth…”
“Earth has got the hottest chicks.”
“Just give me a walk-on role as an innocent bystander that the building falls on in the climatic final battle scene (with explosions)!”
Please, someone make sure Bay never sees these, he will take them seriously.
As you can see, late night talk show ginger, Conan O’Brien has tossed in his two cents. Please, no one let Bay see this either.
Now it’s time to take the true source of free thought in the modern world. This is what you have been twittering about in this time of crisis.
I don’t know why, but when I saw the above image I giggled for a full 5 minutes. It’s been a long couple of days.
So, that is the day in TMNT/Alien news. If I was a betting man I’d say we are just getting started here too. Big thanks, to ComicBookMovie.com, the /co/mrades on 4chan.org and the various other places I lifted these from. Hopefully things start to calm down soon so the healing process can begin.
