Genuine Promo Art From 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Gives Us Our First Look At The Turtles And Shredder

With all the heat Marvel and DC films have been getting lately, it's easy for fans to forget that we will in fact finally be getting a new live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie later this summer. Fans haven't exactly been easy on the upcoming take on the TMNT, as only a few years back rumors had suggested that the film would have the turtles be of alien origin, and of course, as soon as many heard that Michael Bay (Transformers: Age of Extinction) would be producing the film, they were quick to pass off the movie as yet another misguided adaption. But reassured Ninja Turtle fans, because the first bits of concept and promo art for the film have made their way online, and believe or not, they aren't half bad.

Below are the leaked pictures courtesy of CBM which show off the character miniatures used for the upcoming film, that gives us a good look at the full body designs and costumes of each of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle members (Played by Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Alan Ritchson, and Jeremy Howard):

At first glance it's obvious that director Jonathan Liebesman has decided to give the brothers very different looks from each other, which is something that wasn't done in the original 90s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Leonardo has a wooden chest plate and minimalist type armor which is perfect for his physical appearance. Raphael is given more a large muscular appearance and a mask that covers more of his face, being that he is the more physical and aggressive member of the team. Michelangelo wears a jacket around his waist, and doesn't look as physical as his brothers and does sport the shorter height from the other members of the half shell team. Then we come to Donatello, who's given glasses and a taller stature in comparison to the other turtles, and he generally has the look of the stereotypical "smarter sibling", which is really the only design that goes a bit over board.
Now as for the Shredder design we have bellow, there's definitely going to be a lot more reassurance from fans worried about Liebesman and Bay's take on the classic villain. While descriptions of the costume had many concerned that the many blades and metallic armory protruding from Shredder's suit would end up look like a convoluted mess akin to one of Bay's Decepticons in the Transformers series, it seems the look is actually pretty bad-ass. As we learned early in the film's production, Shredder's identity has been changed from the originally Japanese Oroku Saki, to an American named Eric Sachs, who will be played by William Fichtner (The Lone Ranger).
And finally we have that last bit of art leaked from the film, which actually gives us the best idea of what the final look of the turtles will resemble. The faces of the turtles are clearly showing a slightly more human look than we've seen in previous incarnations, but this is mainly due to the fact that Liebesman used mo-cap sensors on the film's actors, similar to how Mark Ruffalo's facial expressions and likeness were used for the Hulk in The Avengers. We also have a better look at the very different gear the characters are sporting, namely Donatello who not only is wearing glasses, but also a pair of high tech goggles.
So what do you think of the new designs Liebesman and Bay have decided to use for the turtles and Shredder? Are you going to reserve judgement until the first bits of footage are released? Let us know below!
