is out doing spin control and in the process insulting our knowledge of TMNT.
“Look, it’s so funny—if everyone was such a die-hard fan, they would know that the TCRI canisters where the ooze comes from. That is alien ooze. Now I’m not saying what Michael said is exactly what the movie is, because we’re sitting in a room now figuring everything out. So we don’t know, but we are like Michael said: we’re expanding it, and the expansion will be true to the mythology. I promise you: fans will love it.”
Michael Bay's comment was the turtles would be alien.
The ooze having alien ties is an entirely different matter.
Yes, the Utroms had infiltrated TCRI and contributed to the ooze. That is not in dispute.
Saying ooze=alien(or alien-esque) sure. I can post pics of utroms at TCRI in early TMNT issues, I have the hardcover.
Saying turtles=alien doesn't fly, cause turtles are terrestrial
