Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles: Good News- They're Not ALIENS!

     Well, here's a small bit of "good" news about Michael Bay's destruction of our childhood memories-

     Bay from MovieFone interview:
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.
     So, while they are NOT aliens now (again?), did he not say this on EW.com?:
“When you see this movie, kids are going to believe one day these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie,” said Bay as he took the stage to discuss his new vision for the reptilian reboot. “These turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable.”
     Changing them back into mutant turtles instead of aliens is one small glimmer of hope for this potentially massive train wreck.  Still only ONE glimmer though, after the logo reveal at Las Vegas Cinema Con where Paramount reverted the reboot's title from Ninja Turtles, back to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I consider this statement as an extension of that fix.
