Bay’s Turtles Are What We Thought They Were

In case you missed it, the trailer for the latest iteration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film franchise has hit the web.

I mean, what were you expecting? It’s Michael Bay x the Ninja Turtles. It was never destined to end well. You remember what he did to the Transformers, right?

Here, I’ll let former Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green elaborate:

I’m not gonna let them off the hook yet, though. Yes, it looks like crap, and Bay’s fingerprints are all over this thing. But I want to get something straight. It’s absurd to suggest Iron Fist could maybe be portrayed by an Asian American guy (like, say Cole Horibe), but it’s okay that the Shredder is actually being played by a white dude?

Okay. That makes a lot of sense.
