Michael Bay Confirms Krang Is In ‘Ninja Turtles’ Sequel, Won’t Look Like ‘A Stupid Octopus’



Earlier today, we wrote about the Rolling Stone article in which Michael Bay revealed his net worth and gave a Transformers 5 update, but that wasn’t the only news to come from the long interview. Bay also confirmed the rumor from last May about Krang making his live-action debut in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. That is one unwieldy title. Also unwieldy? Trying to CG a disembodied brain from Dimension X, apparently.

In the recent Rolling Stone profile, Michael Bay — who is producing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turn Off the Dark — called Industrial Light & Magic via Skype or FaceTime or somesuch in the middle of the interview, and had ILM show him and the reporter some of the post-production work on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Straight Outta Compton.

Pablo Helman, a visual-effects supervisor who worked on the Star Wars prequels, appears onscreen and shows Bay the latest version of Krang, a new-to-the-movies villain who is, essentially, a disembodied brain inside a giant robot. “So we’ve eliminated the tentacles,” Helman explains. “Is it too monster-ish?”

“He could have some tentacles,” says Bay. “I just don’t want them coming out of the side. He looks like a stupid octopus.” (Via)
