While I’m not particularly excited to see the Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Libesman-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, I will admit to being casually curious about the film’s redesign of the iconic characters from my childhood. So far, we’ve seen the turtles and April O’Neil, today, we finally get a look at the franchise’s primary villain, Shredder.
And he looks pretty goddamn ridiculous.
Not that Shredder—or anything having to do with the franchise—isn’t ridiculous already, but this just looks like a parody of what Shredder would look like in a Michael Bay film. Take a look:
Basically, it’s a Transformer with swords on its arms. Suck on that, nostalgia!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set for an April 8 release date.
What do you think of Shredder’s look?
