Between 2015 and 2016, IDW released a special crossover event that saw the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fight alongside the Dark Knight. Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a smash hit and there were even rumours that an animated film would follow. Imagine what a live-action movie would be like.
For those who missed the comic, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, written by James Tynion IV and drawn by Freddie Williams II, sees The Turtles and Shredder transporting to an alternate universe by Krang. In Gotham City, they meet Batman and clash with a number of the city’s villains while attempting to find their way home.
The six issues were titled Knights in a Half Shell, Last Turtle Standing, Totally Awesome Team-Up, New Friends, Old Ghosts, Deadly Mutant Arkham Inmates and The Way Home.
Using clips from Batman v Superman and TMNT: Out of the Shadows, we’ve put together a trailer imagining what a live-action film might look like. While we’re not exactly sure if Ben Affleck would be keen, the premise seems fun. It certainly imagines a better Turtles franchise than the one we were given.
