Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Design Revealed In New Halloween Costume
This summer will bring all kinds of heroes back to the big screen, from the uncanny mutants of X-Men: Days of Future Past to the titular webslinger of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to the mechanical Autobots of Transformers: Age of Extinction. But while all three of those films have already released first look images and even trailers, one film that we remain all but completely in the dark about is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Directed by Wrath of the Titans' Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay's company, Platinum Dunes, the upcoming summer blockbuster has kept the internet patiently waiting for the first official look at the new adolescent, evolved, martial arts-fighting reptiles. It turns out that the wait has been just a bit too long, as now we are getting our first impressions of the new TMNT design from a cheap Halloween costume.
The fan site TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles.com managed to get their hands on the image you see at the top of this article, which they say is a 2014 Michelangelo costume that is based on the look of one of the four lead characters in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. While clearly not the best way to see the design for the first time, there are some notable elements, namely the shorts underneath the waist sash and the look of the mask.
For comparison purposes, let's take a look at some of the TMNT designs of the past, shall we? First off we have the characters as they originally appeared in the comics:

Then came the live-action movies from the 1990s...
And then most recently there was the animated TMNT movie:
This new version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be different from all other incarnations, as it was made using motion capture instead of either pure CGI or practical costumes, but what do you think of the design? Do you think it will play on the big screen, or are there elements that you don't like about it? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
