Warner Bros. has provided CBR News with a mini-gallery of new images from the forthcoming film, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." We spoke previously about the film with producer Thomas Gray, as well as director Kevin Munroe, who told us to expect in the Turtles' big comeback a closer resemblence to Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird's original "TMNT" comics.

"The first issues weren't funny, there was really no humor in it," explained Mundroe. "It was when the Fred Wolf series [the first cartoon series] started that the humor came into it. But there was this element of fun, these weird characters and stuff, and that's the vibe I was going for. It's like, "Ghostbusters" is fun, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is fun… fun isn't funny. So yeah, it does feel like that stuff a lot. I think fans will appreciate it. A lot of people forget the comic, or they think the Fred Wolf series was the birth of the Turtles, and so many people forget the original comic."

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" return to the silver screen March 30th, 2007.
