During press interviews at Comic-Con 2014, Megan Fox had some interesting insight into the new Michael Bay version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. With all the worry and hate linked to the brand-new story, there was a lot of defending to do. Fox's insight into the Turtles' personalities and an accidental romance spoiler may make fans a little more optimistic, though. (Or perhaps pessimistic, if you can't adapt well to change.)

If your ears perked up at romance, you might have immediately thought of April O'Neil and Raphael. Their flirty relationship is practically cannon for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But, all good things must come to an end, right? From the way Fox talked, that's exactly what might happen.

"You know, when we were filming, there was a connection with Raphael," Fox shared. "However, what took over the movie and what you're going to see a lot of is there's a lot of Mikey. There's a bond with Mikey, I guess."

Will Arnett backed her up by commenting that April O'Neal and Michelangelo definitely had "a thing." Interestingly enough, Arnett also mentioned that it was Raphael and Vern (Arnett's character and April O'Neil's cameraman) who hit it off well. Why? Fox explained it through a little bit of Greek philosophy.

"I've always been on this thing about [how] the Turtles are each based on the four Greek temperaments. And Raphael is a choleric and that's how we were playing April. So there's this bond but also this opposition. You know, brothers and sister fighting," she said, explaining which temperaments belonged to the other turtles. "There's phlegmatic, which I would say is Donatello. There's sanguine, which would be Mikey and there's melancholic, which is Leonardo. And I don't know this. This is what I'm saying, I haven't had that confirmed by Eastman (the creator), but that's my theory."

Wow. That was an unexpected twist to the tale of and the last thing we expected from Fox. Still, she didn't say they were definitely going to have a romance between Mikey and April. As a matter of fact, Fox also mentioned that she thought longtime fans would be happy with how close the new movie sticks to TMNT cannon. Would you be down with a little inter-species fling between Michelangelo and April... or is that just too weird? Tell us in the comments below!
