Not liking what I'm hearing so far about Shredder and all of this adopting business.

There's reasons why Nolan's version of Ras gets more of a pass. The most obvious being that an arab attempting to destroy a city is going to raise more than a few eyebrows in this day and age. Secondly the characters ethnicity isn't all that important to characters overall motif. He's a head of an international crime syndicate, an eco terrorist, wanted to recruit Bruce as his successor.

In contrast there really is no reason why Shredder can't be Japanese. While there's no reason why a ninja couldn't be a white American it would seem to need complicated additions to his backstory to make his story as it has always been "work".

Of course that's another issue. The casting of Fichtner who doesn't seem suited to a ninja master and the very strong signs the character is a military man as well as rumours he's an industrialist or politician etc which means the characters main motif has been significantly changed and for what reason? We can only speculate but I suspect it's because guns n' 'splosions are more appealing to the people making this movie than martial arts battles. In which case I'm not sure that should be making a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Heck, the fact they only included the mutant aspect grudgingly is another cause for concern.
But very little "alterations" were done with the 1990 film.

The first Ninja Turtles movie was pretty close to the comics, as close s a kid marketed movie could be. It was a lot more faithful to the source than the cartoon was. The hugest alteration it made was switching Raphael with Leonardo as the fallen brother. Why such drastic changes need to be made to the Shredder is beyond my comprehension.

Same here. Now I'm just curious to find out about the whole Shredder being white deal...I'm hoping for reincarnation, it makes the most sense really

But it looks quite promising in a menacing way.

the suit looks robo suit similar to Elysium and Edge of Tomorrow(tom cruise). like Eric Sachs got this suit from a lab and added the spikes and helmet.

does he need this suit to be able to fight all 4 turtles?

I wouldn't be surprised if this Shredder needs a powered suit to take the Turtles on. Raph looks like the freaking Hulk.

I long for the days when Ninja/Martial Arts master Oroku Saki aka Shredder could fight and even beat all four Ninja Turtles with only his savagery and natural abilities in martial arts.

What a great time to be alive.
