The new Netflix release, ‘The Rise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, starts in the future. We can only see Michelangelo(Mikey) and Leonardo fighting the Krangs in the year 2044. But does this mean their brothers Raphael and Donatello are dead? And will Mikey die too?
In the first ten minutes, it is shown that Leo asks Mikey to create a time gateway so that Casey Jones can go into the past and find the key that was used to free the krang. Time travel is clearly not an easy thing to perform. The making of a time gateway uses up all of Mikey’s power. When he was asked to make it, he even said, “It’ll take everything I have.” Michelangelo successfully creates a time gateway but dies in the process of making it. After he finally creates the portal, we can see that he explodes into pieces.
After Casey Jones goes into the past, and when Leo is impulsive and arrogant, he even tells him that all of his brothers would die in the future while fighting the krang. During his travel to the past, he does see a younger version of Mikey, whom he refers to as Master Michelangelo. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, along with April O’Neil, Casey Jones, and Master Splinter, fight the krang to send them back into the prison dimension.
Rise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has some pretty cool and creepy villains. One of them is the Krangs, we have a whole article explaining Who Are ‘The Krang’ From ‘Rise Of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
Mikey wonders if they can change the future in some way, but Donnie dismisses his idea by saying they can’t because of theories like the grandfather paradox, physical determinism, and space-time continuum; when Leo reminds them, they already have changed the future and are just in a different Bifurcated time branch, where nobody has died.
