It is with great pleasure that we welcomed the news shared by Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the Ninja Turtles, at Comic-Con San Diego. The Ninja Turtles are reappearing in a Netflix series that the creator made sure was true to the original comics. Understand that the tone will be much darker than the one used in the cartoons we used to watch as kids.
In fact, Kevin Eastman stated that the inspiration behind his serial adaptation of the cartoons was Daredevil - the TV show -, which was very well received by fans. Moreover, he explains that Daredevil was the inspiration behind the creation of the Ninja Turtles, 35 years ago. Given that Netflix has dropped Daredevil, the Ninja Turtles could take over and embody this darker side of superheroes.
As for the release date of this series, we don't when it's coming out yet, but we will be sure to inform you as soon as we hear something.
