Because you’re all out there eagerly awaiting any and all news regarding the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers 4 flicks, we here at the Nerd Bastards have tuned our mental powers into the network.  Today, we bring you a few more quotes from the mouth of childhood-wrecker Michael Bay.  He speaks a little bit on some changes and un-changes with the upcoming films.

Concerning the mutant-ness of the turtles in the TMNT reboot:

There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not. It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.

Well, at least that’s a relief.  But you still have Megan Fox playing April, you turd, and that may be a sin that is unforgivable.

And he had this to say about how he wasn’t satisfied by the way our beloved Transformers looked and so decided to play God:

You know there are a couple of historians of Transformers. I would do my designs of the robots and they’re like, ‘What if you just add a little bit more ears to Optimus?’ But they’re really hands off. We’ve redesigned them in ‘Transformers 4,’ and there’s some really cool s-t in it. I’m literally redesigning every character, top to bottom. There’s a reason why they’re redesigned, but it’s also to keep it new and fresh to me. I think the fans will appreciate some of this new stuff we have in the movie and some of the new characters.

Well, plus 3 points to your geek-karma for the turtles and minus 20 for pimping the robots.  Still not good enough, Bay!

If you really must see them, look for TMNT to release on June 6th, 2014 and Transformers 4 shortly after that on June 27th.
