Bay: ‘Teenage Ninja Tur­tles’ fans need to ‘chill’

The Washington Times Daily - - Life -

Michael Bay thinks “Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles” fans need to chill.

The 47-year-old di­rec­tor-pro­ducer in­cited outrage among fans of the su­per­hero fran­chise when he re­vealed at the Nick­elodeon up­front pre­sen­ta­tion in New York last week that the pizza-lov­ing, crime-fight­ing tur­tles would come from an “alien race” in a “Ninja Tur­tles” film he is pro­duc­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to fran­chise lore, mys­te­ri­ous ra­dioac­tive ooze trans­formed the tur­tles into su­per­heroes who bat­tle evil­do­ers.

“Fans need to take a breath and chill,” Mr. Bay said in a state­ment posted on his web­site
