"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" images have been revealed for the new Michael Bay movie. The first "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" images are of The Shredder and Leonardo, giving fans a quick look at what the 2014 film could look like. According to a report from late Tuesday (Jan. 28), these first photos come from a source close to production.

It is unclear if this is what the final version of the two characters will look like in the film, especially since producers have done a very good job at keeping the production under wraps. The images are receiving mixed reactions from fans, with some feeling that the turtles have too much armor on, but many feeling that Shredder definitely looks like a villain in the new interpretation. It will be interesting to see if director Jonathan Liebesman ("Battle Los Angeles," "Wrath of the Titans") confirms the authenticity of these images.

In what amounts to a complete reboot of the franchise, the new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is set to hit theaters on August 8, 2014. William Fichtner ("The Dark Knight," "The Lone Ranger") stars as The Shredder, Will Arnett ("Arrested Development") is Vernon Fenwick, and Megan Fox is going to be April O'Neil. That casting choice ruffled a lot of feathers when it comes to fans, especially since she looks nothing like any of the original interpretations of the comic book.

As for the tagline going along with the film, that might frustrate fans that know the origin story of the turtles very well. In the re-imagined story, "Aliens invade Earth and inadvertently spawn a quartet of mutated reptile warriors, the Ninja Turtles, who rise up against them to defend the world."
