I really hope this is the epic some of us have been waiting for for years. One that is on a bigger scale with plenty of mutants.
To have an epic, you need characters your audience cares about. Otherwise you've got a movie bloated with fluff. I would like less Raph/Leo conflict and more stuff from Mike and Donnie. If they give Mike his love of superheroes, there could be an arc where Mike tries to act like a superhero, maybe to save someone dear to him, and it goes horribly wrong. Donnie could have an arc where he tries to rely wholly on his science rather than ninjitsu and science.

The burden of leadership, growing lax after becoming a successful leader, and being dragged back into the reality of a leader's responsibilities is a good arc for Leo.

IDK about Raph. Suggestions?

I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
