CORRECTION: The mask is fan art. Details here.
Legendary Pictures is bringing a reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to screens in 2011. Last April, Peter Laird (co-creator of the original comic) told MTV that the movie would be closer to the original comic and all live-action. Actors would wear turtle suits and CG faces would be added in post production to give them more facial expressiveness. While in the turtle suits, a rouge rogue blogger will wander onto set and hit them with a mop handle, yelling, “I know you’re filled with candy. Gimme the candy.”
Now LatinoReview has received a picture which may be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mask for the new movie, although any masks worn by the actors are probably going to be used more for lighting reference for doing post-production CG work than for the final scenes. I’m putting the pic after the jump, since it could be considered a spoiler (if real). Also so I could start the post with a picture of Raphael punching Hitler in the mouth, because hell yes.
It could be an elaborate prank, but it really does look like the turtles from the original comic (inset pic above). Then again, it could also be someone going to great lengths to cosplay Turtle Rape Shoe. CowabungAH-AH-AH . . . AH!
