So far Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film hasn’t been meet with the least bit of  enthusiasm by fans, for many reasons.

The name, the change of their origins, Megan Fox, CGI, Changing Shredder’s name, a horrible leaked script or any combination. But it seems that the film’s name may have been switched due to the unanimous bad fan reaction. The new title seems to be….Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

According to TMNT, as per a logo showed by Paramount Pictures during their CinemaCon presentation. Also they say that the script has been re-written by Evan Daugherty, who wrote the screenplay for Snow White and the Huntsman.

So that’s good news right? Well at least the name change part. Does it change the way you feel about the movie? One thing is certain in the social media age we live in, if you don’t like something speak up!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher. Currently in production, the film is set to hit theaters June 6th, 2014.
