Ninja Turtles co-creator compares reboot film to The Avengers

Nov 23 2012, 10:01am CST | by

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' co-creator Kevin Eastman thinks the upcoming reboot film will be similar to blockbuster feature 'The Avengers' and reveals it will have state of the art CGI.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' co-creator Kevin Eastman thinks the film is similar to 'The Avengers'.
Kevin, who created the original children's comic book along with Peter Laird, thinks the upcoming reboot film will be just as good as Marvel's blockbuster movie and other successful films with exciting fight scenes and CGI.
Talking to NBC, he said: ''From what I've seen of the script, it's fantastic... We're talking about being inspired by movies like 'The Avengers' for scope and roots origin and 'The Raid: Redemption' for fight scenes and 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' as far as computer-quality style.''
The film, to be directed by 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' filmmaker Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay, may even see original star Corey Feldman return to reprise his role as Donatello after he hinted he would get involved if Jonathan were to offer him the part.
Corey, who voiced the turtle in the 1990 and 1993 films, told MovieWeb: ''Michael Bay and I have become social acquaintances... We have traded cell phone numbers. We have been in communication.
''I have let him know that I support the project. He has let me know that he is a fan of my work. We are communicating.
''I wouldn't say there has been a formal offer, or anything like that. It's not even really going to be Michael Bay's decision. It's going to be the director's decision.''
The film's release date has been pushed back from winter 2013 to summer 2014.

Now playing around the world is Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  As most of you know, TMNT made over $65 million dollars in its first weekend at the North America box office, which led to Paramount announcing a sequel for summer 2016.  What started out as a one and done comic book by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman in 1984 shows no signs of slowing down thirty years later. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an extended video interview with Jonathan Liebesman ...

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back in a Michael Bay produced, Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) directed action flick that is heavy on the CG and still quite loyal to the mythology. Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the Turtles in the 80s as a parody of sorts to all the superheroes permeating in comics. What happened next had to surprise even them. Audiences emb ...
