​Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Look Like This Now

It's been a big secret—with occasional leaks and glimpses—what Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo would look like in the Michael Bay-produced TMNT reboot. Now you can see it for yourself. They're... bigger.

The new look isn't the only thing that's different about this version of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's indie comic book mega-series. The Daredevil-inspired origin of the Turtles' mutation—getting splattered by radioactive gunk in a random accident—is getting changed up, with their hybrid nature coming as a direct result of experiments by April O'Neil and archvillain Shredder.

I'm 31 this year, and as much as I dislike Micheal Bay, I refuse to be a part of this jaded community that will shit on every reboot because the reigning child-mind is locked in "the perfect era" of all things creative. The size of the turtles is a creative decision. They are still teenage, mutant and ninjas.

Reboots work because they appeal to both older and younger audiences so it can generate more revenue. It's business. New IPs are hard to make work when the rights to classic properties with an already-established fan base are for sale.

I might not see it, but I'm fine with it being made. I'm sure a lot of people will like it.
