Michael Bay has a strong message for the panicked Ninja Turtles fans who are freaking out about his new TMNT movie ... CHILL THE HELL OUT!!!!

Turtle fans have been going INSANE ever since Bay announced he was planning to tweak the origin story in his upcoming live action movie ... with Leo and the gang belonging to an alien race instead of mutating from ooze in the sewer.

Now, Bay has released a statement ... saying, "Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story."

He continues, "Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world."

Satisfied?

i think he is going to make the utron ark story and combined some of the comics, and cartoon animated series in to the remake. i do have one thought, ether at a tadpole state the turtles are aliens and some how morph to resemble the turtles that are around there and then get wash down do to heavy rain or the ooz is the "alien" part that transform them.

He should put ins his rear a very big peruvian sized corn and then sit over an oven and waits until big mutant sized popcorns fill all of his body and then realize what MUATATING means and that those popcorns were not teleported by aliens.

TMNT fans know who I am...    

There's one thing you don't mess with is their origins. He says he's working with one of the creators, which one? Now they don't own any of it, they have no say in what happens to the TMNT anyways. Bay can turn them into radioactive blackbelt hamsters....Bay is a knucklehead trying to make them aliens. F* that! Oh sure F*ing aliens who are ninja experts...like someone said it takes away their personalities and their issues that define who they are.
And if he turns Raphael into some overly muscled brainless idiot, I'll kick Bay's butt! RAWR!

The moment Michael Bay was announced as the guy behind the new movie all the TMNT fan forums knew this was going to happen, he has already ruined one franchise (Transformers) and now he is going to ruin another.
