Jonathan Liebsman’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has been shrouded in controversy, thanks to the divisive casting choice of Megan Fox as April O’Neil and leaked details that suggested that the Michael Bay-produced project would be abandoning the “Teenage” and “Mutant” aspects of the characters and giving them an alien origin story. Needless to say, the movie is hotly anticipated, if only to see what Liebsman has done with the beloved heroes-in-a-half-shell and if he’s managed to not ruin our childhoods.
Despite production starting early last year, we’ve still seen absolutely no footage or even official images from the movie, something that’s going to change when Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrives in theaters on April 4th. According to producer Galen Walker via his Facebook page, the first trailer will debut in front of Marvel’s upcoming movie.
Ok- Cool Beans folks! the new “Ninja Turtles” Teaser will make it’s debut in front of the New Captain America Film- April 4th. We are ready and prepared for lift off! Been a long haul.
Chances are the trailer may debut online a bit earlier than the Cap sequel, and you can bet that we’re all incredibly anxious to see what Liebsman has in store for us. Of course, as soon as it’s available we’ll have it here for your viewing pleasure.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be a full-on reboot for the property, from a script by Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol scribes Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. It stars Megan Fox as April O’Neil, William Fichtner as Shredder and Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, and Jeremy Howard as Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Donatello, respectively. The film arrives in theaters on August 8th.
