The new Ninja Turtles movie has been mired in controversy from the get go. First Michael Bay announced the turtles might be aliens, leading to a mighty uproar which forced the film-makers to change the script. Then Megan Fox was cast in the iconic role of April O Neil, resulting in further fan backlash. The director J. Liebesman's (Texas Chain Saw Massacre : the Beginning, Battle : Los Angeles) track record didn't inspire much confidence either. Additionally the controversy surrounding the apparent whitewashing of the turtles' iconic nemesis Shredder (Oroku Saki) refused to die down.
And then the second full trailer happened : which showed maybe William Fichtner is not really Shredder but someone else maybe playing the villainous role along with some awesome turtle badassery! The trailer had just about tided down the fans ..given some hope...
Alas ! Megan Fox had to open her mouth
In a press panel promoting her new movie, the movie team was asked about the recent fan backlash and Megan Fox responded with this..
"Let me tell you something about those people. How much money did Transformers 4 make? Exactly. Those people can complain – they all go to the theater. They’re gonna love it – and if they don’t love it, they can fuck off, and that’s the end of that."
This makes no sense whatsoever.. Just because a movie made money doesn't make it a good film.Secondly, she was not in Transformers 4 nor is Michael Bay the director of this movie. Maybe she is just frustrated at the fan community for not having her back! Megan Fox is not feeling the love guys. Could it be that her past acting performances haven't been that stellar? Nah fans must be crazy
I really hope Megan Fox knocks it out of the park as April O Neil. But I have serious doubts about her. Also the trailers seem to hide her, she barely speaks in any of them. Maybe that's for the better
Anyways I wanna know what you guys think about this. Is Megan Fox justified in her comments? Put in your thoughts down below
