Could This Be What The NINJA TURTLES Will Look Like In The Reboot?

Check out this image posted by an actor who may be involved with the controversial reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes..

By Mark Cassidy - 4/9/2012
Rapper and sometime actor Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi posted the following image (possible concept design sketch?) to his Tumblr..

He also added this..

An original one of a kind sketch of a unknown Ninja Turtle by one half of the creators, Kevin Eastman. A gift given to me by my homies Andrew Form and Brad Fuller over at Platinum Dunes. Hint hint mane

So at the very least Cudi has met with the studio regarding the movie, and even if he isn't playing/voicing one of the Turtles themselves, it certainly sounds like he is involved in some capacity. He also tweeted - "To everyone with doubts & concerns about the new TMNT reboot, trust me, there is NOTHING to worry about. Trust. Everyone will be pleased!". But of course that doesn't necessarily mean that the above image has any bearing on what the Turtles will look like in the movie, it might just be a cool sketch done for Cudi by Eastman. Still, you never know, certainly looks quite "alien" to me. What do you guys think?

Let me just say that if I were suicidal, this would probably what pushed me over the edge and convinced me to do it.
It's almost like they're intentionally trying to [frick] this up.

Dude it's just a funny sketch.

Right that's it. I'm killing Michael Bay.

I don't think thats real. But if it is caps will be popped in many an ass.

Nail, maybe ..maybe not. You know that for a fact?

That is fail

no God Noooooooo, this is bull#$%" añslkjdfñlkjajklñsajklñdjklñfa noooooooo

In a perfect world, this is just a prank by Bay, meant to [frick] with our expectations before they release the actual artwork that looks much more like the source material.
nailbiter111 - 4/9/2012, 3:08 PM
seeing as though kevin eastman has been producing sketches and posting photos over the past two weeks making fun of the alien controversy I'd say I'm pretty confident in my assessment.

Murphy's Law now has a related rule for film: Bay's Law. Any thing he can do wrong, he will do wrong.

This sketch prolly won't amount to anything. And if it did, and you see it finalized for film, you all would probably love it. Bay's good with visuals, you can give him that much. :P

"To Kevin--This might work! XO, Ridley Scott"

Faker than my wife's breasts.
Emjeed - 4/9/2012, 3:13 PM
Oh lord.. i hope its just a sketch Kevin made for him..
RorMachine - 4/9/2012, 3:14 PM
Hey you might be right, I'm only asking the question with the article, Cudi is still definitely involved. Either way I'd say there is much more of a chance of that being the new look for the Ninja Turtles than there ever was of Jason Statham joining Transformers 4 based on an unrelated tweet by Tyrese Gibson:)
AlexRival - 4/9/2012, 3:21 PM
Even if its a joke, its not funny. Whoever posted it probably knows how much commotion Bay has caused and has to know that the fans aren't having it, just be serious about this movie and make it right.
GLprime2814 - 4/9/2012, 3:22 PM
C'mon man are you serious?
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 4/9/2012, 3:22 PM
Funny sketch. :P
nailbiter111 - 4/9/2012, 3:23 PM
He is involved, but what is more likely Kevin making him a funny sketch, or handing over concept art? Just don't buy it.
santoanderson - 4/9/2012, 3:25 PM
PS, I'm pretty sure this is just supposed to be a Ninja Turtle in Gears of War armor. It's a joke people.

I don't care what they do to the Ninja Turtles, and you would be hard pressed to find a bigger TMNT fan growing up in the late 80's early 90's. I don't think there was one piece of merchandise I didn't own. Just keep everyone's personality the same, make them resemble their cartoon counterparts a little bit and make a good, fun movie without taking the subject too seriously. If people really cared about the franchise they would have made the last one a success. Michael Bay isn't raping anyone's childhood with this movie. His movies make money, and are often fun to watch. They never have great plots, but they will keep you entertained and you will more than likely get your money's worth. Well save for Transformers 2, that was just awful. I just feel a lot of people hate him because it's the geeky cool thing to do.

this looks like assgard mixed with the ninja turtles wtf?definitley not cool,why change the turtles if this is a real skectch for the movie that is..
CaptainObvious - 4/9/2012, 3:35 PM
I wouldn't be suprised if it was.
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/9/2012, 3:36 PM

Bay, Eastman and Liebesman cant be this stupid!xD
Lilvic92 - 4/9/2012, 3:37 PM
Why is Kid Cudi part of this movie ??? Let's get some good rappers to do these voices...EMINEM.

But in all seriousness, this film is gonna suck. I guess I finally understand what Transformers fans have been going through since 2007..
Asterisk - 4/9/2012, 3:41 PM
Seriously man, Transformers and TMNT were my two favorite things growing up, and still two of the most awesome things in the world to me...Why, Bay, why?
Sortis - 4/9/2012, 3:48 PM
wow everyone please breathe, and stop trying to stir the pot.
DeadPoolLax - 4/9/2012, 3:57 PM
well if that is what the alien turtles wear when they come to earth, and they are only in those suits for a few minutes, then OK. but the whole movie, no...

HelaGood - 4/9/2012, 4:06 PM

yeah i call bs
BIGBMH - 4/9/2012, 4:34 PM
I highly doubt they'll be dressed like this.
ItsATrap - 4/9/2012, 4:34 PM
it looks like optimus prime and leonardo got it on in michael bay's trailer and somehow birthed *this* thing.
no excuse.

Um... isn't this drawing meant to tease fan's perception of Michael Bay's "alien" comments?
