Haven't you wondered how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got their start as mutated, nearly adult trained killers? What could have possibly happened? Oh, right, the ooze and training. I guess that was covered in the movie, the cartoon's intro, the arcade game's intro, and the back of all the toy packaging. No matter. Let's go over it one more time. From Variety:
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are making their way back to the bigscreen.
The Mirage Group, which owns the property, is moving forward with a live-action film focusing on the origins of the iconic crime fighters. Project, targeted for release in 2011, would mark the fifth bigscreen outing for the sewer-dwelling heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael as well as their master Splinter.
Personally, I would have kept running with the Turtles III/Turtles in Time theme and sent them into the past again. Could Hitler have been a pawn of Krang? That seems feasible. Is that Michelangelo the turtle's head suddenly on the body of Michelangelo's David? What could have happened in the past to spark that sudden, dramatic change that no one seems to notice? The possibilities are endless.
