See Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the entire franchise.
- Welp, wouldn't be the first time.
- Jossed. Eric Sacks is a separate character from the Shredder in the final version of the film and he is a normal human being.
- To be fair it is Jossed only for Eric. Not for the Shredder, it can possibly an Utrom in a human body vessel like in 2003 series.
- It isn't Jossed for just Eric being Krang either. In fact, with him NOT being Shredder makes it work better. Now Eric isn't just a random guy created for the movie... he is secretly Krang, preparing for the Invasion.
- Jossed for Shredder as well. The sequel shows Shredder and Krang as two separate characters.
- Confirmed on the first, Jossed on the second. April comments that the ooze was alien in origin, but the armor is directly from Sachs' company.
I don't get it.
- Splinter has a Group.
- Splinter has a Group.
- Well, he did lead the Foot Clan in the '87 cartoon...
- Jossed. Sachs and Shredder are separate entities.
- Jossed. He wasn't captured because the sewer collapsed on him and he was mistaken for dead.
- It appears to be the case, at least I hope so. He's not just an associate, he's a decoy (just like with Ra's al Ghul) and will be wearing the armor.
- Confirmed, Sachs is the real Shredder's disciple.
- Confirmed, Vernon is a nice guy and Bernadette is a reasonable boss (she fires April, but that's entirely reasonable given how she was behaving, and giving Vernon a new car was pretty nice).
- Jossed. Splinter learned ninjitsu from a book. The rest might be true.
- Jossed. Raphael and April were there during the attack, but Raph was knocked unconscious pretty early on, and avoided being captured with his brothers. Afterwards, it's too chaotic, what with the rush to rescue Leo, Donnie, and Mikey, and then stop the Shredder, for much individual bonding.
- In the vein of the Nick show, Mikey spends the rest of the film proposing new names, eventually settling on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
- Confirmed, Splinter lives.
- Or as members of a gang that will chase April early in the movie.
- Sadly Jossed on both counts.
- They might appear in the sequel.
- There's talk of them appearing.
- Sadly Jossed on both counts.
- Their appearance in the sequel has been confirmed.
- Their craving for pizza.
- Confirmed. Splinter even uses it to tempt them at one point.
- After April faints, Mikey said "Aww she's no fun. She fainted."
- Jossed. Though she did fainted upon meeting the Turtles.
- Mikey saying "Can we keep her?"
- Mikey shouting "Cowabunga!" But the Turtles (especially Raph) think it's lame. "That's so 80's."
- Sort of... they reveal Mikey would say it often as kids, but Raph forced him to stop because he thought it was lame.
- The Purple Dragon gang.
- Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's names are referenced in some way.
- Confirmed, they're the authors of Splinter's ninjutsu manual.
They intend to expand more on the characters' backstory in the sequel, which will reveal the Turtles and Splinter to be the reincarnations of Hamato Yoshi and his four biological sons as in the IDW comic.
Shredder may or may not also be a reincarnation of Tatsuo Takeshi, who in this continuity killed Yoshi and his sons before he reincarnated as Oroku Saki (or whatever the real name of this version of Shredder is).
This would be a brilliant Author's Saving Throw for fans who were disappointed about the removal of Hamato Yoshi, Shredder's feud with him, and the impact they had on the origins of Splinter and the Turtles.
- Another reason could be that Splinter is Yoshi's rat and after Yoshi's death TCRI adopted him and put him in the lab with his turtle friends.
- Jossed. Baxster is a minor secondary antagonist in the sequel and the Rat King doesn't appear at all in the sequel.
- Confirmed... sort of. Shredder explicitly wants to create a mutant army but only manages to create Bebop and Rocksteady.
- Jossed. No Hamato Yoshi in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
- Confirmed, albeit portrayed by a different actress.
- Jossed, although he has been re-cast.
- Jossed. Shredder survives his fall without lasting consequences and resumes his role in the Foot Clan in the sequel.
In the somewhat far future, Sacks' company buys / is bought out by Armadyne. Sacks uses the initial versions of the Med-Bays (which he pioneers with notes that he gathered from trying to recreate the mutagen) to restore himself to youth, and uses his company's research into power armor to create the autonomous robot police. Sacks takes over Armadyne and changes his identity, becoming John Carlyle and working on the technology to create Elysium.
- A blink and you'll miss it visual references in the 2014 film of the 2012 Hamato Crest on the Wall Scroll, it's on a Banner on the Hero's side.
- Sheddder explicitly saying that Karai's version of the foot are weaker and lack training compared to his, implying there's an older version of the foot but they're no longer around. Also that he'd have to have armor that needed to be retrofitted, meaning it's possibly his own.
- The fact both this film and IDW have elements of Splinter suddenly gaining awareness of himself after experimented on.
- The Ooze is said to be of alien origin and the Shedder seemingly knows how to use it for curative means which lines up with IDW where the Ooze is used in several situations as a cure for illnesses (Most noticeably April's father who is confined to a wheelchair at first) and was provided by that version of Krang.
- The original 2 writers and the director of the first film had talked openly about a sequel, that includes the parts for Casey, Bebop & Rocksteady of before the first one was in the bag. Most likely meaning they had a vision on how they wanted to progress this series/not a saving throw like a previous WMG suggested.
