You can say what you like about how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looked in the movie this summer, but just be thankful that we didn’t get anything resembling these guys. According to CBM, this pitch artwork by Anthony Francisco (who recently did some great work on Guardians Of The Galaxy and G.I. Joe: Retaliation) represents a much more alien version of the Turtles which would undoubtedly have made fans mob theaters with torches and pitchforks.
Thankfully, the designs only went as far as a meeting with the producers.
