Annie Ilonzeh as April O’Neil (Mirage version)
"You guys, you’ve all been, well… great. And by guys, I guess I mean four big, green, talking turtles and a giant talking rat."
Even though I like Emma!April, I have to admit I would rather see Annie!April in a TMNT movie. I think she would bring a lot of class and intelligence to the role, especially if April were a scientist. Emma!April fits the snarky reporter role more than the sophisticated scientist, in my opinion. I think it’s disappointing that all the April versions except the original are redheads (variety would be nice, you know!), and I would love to see her brought back as a woman of color <3 Also, it’s upsetting that when I go searching for original Mirage April pictures I only end up with Megan Fox or the April O’Neil pornstar…hence the lack of Mirage April pics for this post :/
Anyway, I love Annie and think she would be an amazing choice for April!
