They've reworked the script since then. The Turtles are no longer Aliens, their origin is closer to the comics now.
If I'm not mistaken, they're still going to be aliens they're just taking a more round-about way to get them there.

Re: New live action "Turtles"?

You are mistaken than. Because Bay has come out and said that the origin is now closer to the comics. They completely took out the alien aspect to it.

There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not. It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.
Full story here.

Turtle all bundled up like that makes me think of the Invisible Man.

I think Raphael in a trenchcoat from the first movie looked much better.

He looks "too" bundled up and also way, way too large.

So is this "bad-ass" April, or is she just carrying Raph's sais for him? Check out her boots.

We're getting a van!




I did like the subtle nod to the turtle van in the 90's movie with the volkswagen one.

This one does not hide what it is. A giant toy like something from Schumacher's batman series.

I'm not sure if I like it or not. I certainly don't hate it though.

So far the only thing I don't like is Megan Fox, and not only because she looks like a plastic doll.

Yeah, it sort of works. I'm pretty sure the window tint/decal would violate several local ordinances in NYC, but... The van is sort of neat looking.

That's the best thing I like about the movie so far. It looks pretty sweet. But.. how are they going to fit in that? With all the bulk they have, it looks a bit small for them, but then the pictures might be giving us a wrong sense of scale.

If you look at the second picture you can see a pair of legs underneath the van. Based on that, the van appears to be large enough for the "giant" Turtles that are appearing in this film.

Oh, I guess you're right. It just looks way smaller than it probably is.
