New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV Spot Hints at New Origin Story

Anyone who’s a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knows their origin: they were turtles that were accidentally mutated after exposure to the “ooze.” (which is said to be the same chemical from the same accident that gave Marvel’s Daredevil his powers.) but the latest TV spot for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film reboot hints at a new origin story, one in which the turtles were not the products of an accident, but intentionally created for warfare.

“…we were created as weapons,” says the voiceover. Although the voiceover points out that the turtles are now fighting for the greater good, for the world that “would never accept” them.

You can check out the TV spot below:

@Josh, Eastman and Laird were big fans of Daredevil. The original 1984 TMNT comic actually depicted the scene of Matt Murdock’s accident as the origin of the chemicals that mutated the turtles.

You can check out the explanation as well as the screenshots of the pages in question in one of the Cracked articles about it:

(#1. Daredevil and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Were Created in the Same Traffic Accident)

Someone here deleted a comment for IDK what reason but the comment said: “Eastman and Laird were big fans of Daredevil. The original 1984 TMNT comic actually depicted the scene of Matt Murdock’s accident as the origin of the chemicals that mutated the turtles.” And to also look up “Daredevil and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Were Created in the Same Traffic Accident”
