Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman was at the Phoenix Comicon when he answered a couple of questions concerning Michael Bay’s upcoming reboot. The movie has been under fire ever since it was announced that Bay would be a producer on it. Naturally fans had questions for Eastman.
When asked how he felt about Bay’s involvement in TMNT, Kevin Eastman said:
“He’s been nothing but amazingly respectful, and Jonathan Liebesman’s been the director… I’ve seen the script. I’ve seen the design of the characters. It’s fantastic. The story has all the right turtleisms. They’re in the sewers. I’m very excited to see the movie.”
Eastman also talked about what he’s expecting for the fight scenes:
“We want to do something better than like Raid: Redemption.”
Eastman added that Paramount wants TMNT to be like The Avengers. Now before you get all offended, here’s some news that ought to make you feel better: Eastman went on record to, once again, assure fans that the Turtles would not be aliens. Bay had previously mentioned this, but it’s always nice to hear it again, especially from the TMNT creator himself, don’t you think?
