Megan Fox as TMNT’s April O’Neil Ditches the Yellow Jumpsuit for a Jacket

Many fans protested when Megan Fox was cast to play April O’Neil in the film reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now, it seems there’s even more for fans to be unhappy about — based on the latest pictures of Megan Fox on the TMNT set, it looks like she won’t be wearing the yellow jumpsuit her iconic character is known for; instead, she will be donning a yellow leather jacket.

Gone are the white boots as well. And Megan’s hair, instead of being red, is more of a dark shade of auburn.

Personally, we like this more subtle take on April O’Neil’s wardrobe because, let’s face it, in these modern times, can a reporter really wear a yellow jumpsuit with white boots to work and keep a straight face?

The yellow color of Megan Fox’s leather jacket is enough of a throwback to April O’Neil for us. No word yet on who designed it, but we’ve got an inkling it was Belstaff, the clothing brand known for making jackets for movies, including Harry Potter, X-Men, and Twilight.
