No Shredder for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie?
Shredder was the main villain in the Turtles other franchises. He's like the poor man's Darth Vader. To be fair, the Turtles had other villains too.
((TMNT, the upcoming animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, will dispense with the franchise's previous villain, Shredder, director Kevin Munroe told SCI FI Wire. Series creator Peter Laird suggested the change. "Peter wanted to create new villains, and we tried to figure out what to come up with," Munroe said in an interview. "We dumped Shredder." ))
They dumped the Shredder. Don't piss off the Shredder.
The guy has a point though, read below.
((Munroe added that he was inspired by Batman Begins, which didn't bring back the Caped Crusader's most familiar villain. "I love the way that worked, and how the Joker is hinted at as being the next villain," Munroe said. "I think it would have been a mistake to bring in the Joker as the first [bad guy] in this latest round, and that is why we don't have Shredder in this one. ))
Fine, I can see your point. I can live with that, just don't let the movie suck.
This is also a shredder, used to cover up Big Business's most corrupt CEOs.
