I don't know if anyone else saw this but I figured I'd post it.



UPDATE: Bay himself has spoken out about directing TF4, and though the studios are pushing for his involvement, Bay is still weighing his options:


Right now I’m not decided on Transformers 4… Studio’s are passing rumors but I’m not sure what I’m doing? I know I’m going to do Pain and Gain early spring but that’s it for right now. I’m leaving all my options on the table. I’ve got several Studio meetings in the next two weeks.

What we do know is that there’s already a rough plan in place for the film since producer Don Murphy already came out and said the next film would not be a prequel and that it would continue the franchise’s focus on human characters in an effort to kickstart a second Transformers trilogy. According to Vulture, this remains true and TF4 will “delve deeper into Transformers canon to mine older characters and lore." One of their insiders says the following that we can take as a hint:


”Regular people might not care about bringing out a character like Sentinel Prime. But believe me, fans of the series cared."

Fans who saw Transformers: Dark of the Moon understand that it would be difficult to continue the series as is due to how of the characters ended up by the story’s conclusion. We can therefore expect radical changes and plethora of new characters, perhaps even mining stories from some of the other animated television series.

Expect Transformers 4 to release in summer 2014.

Absolutely. To be sure, the live-action movies have a certain polarizing quality (a problem inherent to mainstream adaptations of subculture material, I suspect); however, this aspect is often and unnecessarily exacerbated across the boards by new and old fans alike. There is no reason as to why we can't conduct ourselves civilly and, in the true spirit of debate (as opposed to pointless polemics), learn a little about one another in the process. :)

So Michael Bay was just confirmed to direct Transformers 4 in 2014. And the enitre fandom cried to their mommies that it's just not fair and that Michael Bay's the Antichrist and that, oh, it's a given that it will suck, but I say...

CALM THE FRAG DOWN

No director is in complete control of every aspect of a movie. In most movies, there's a thing called a script, which writes down every line of dialogue and everything that happens in the movie. And the great thing is, it's usually written by completely different people. And IMBA* the first movie got by on a funny, realistic script from the best pair of blockbuster screenwriters out there: Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. The second movie failed because it was rushed after the writers' strike, and that's that.

We know who the director will be. We know nothing about who the writers will be. Unless Michael Bay decides he's Orson Welles now and has to direct, write, and star in all his movies, we have very little to worry about. For all we know, Charlie Kaufman is gonna turn around and write the most mind-blowingly brilliant piece of Transformers fiction ever written. Something not even good old MB could completely ruin. So get a grip.

*I don't use IMO. I use IMBA (I May Be Assassinated).

I'm sick of the whining too. It's been going on for 5 years and most of it is crap. "Optimus has flames so I'm going to make death threats on Michael Bay." "Ironhide isn't red so the movies suck just because of that." I've heard less whining from fat kids on a diet.

But yeah, some people just can't get over getting their "childhood raped by Michael Bay." Boo f**king hoo. Nobody says you have to watch the films.

*sighs* Not one of these threads....

1.) It won't end well.
2.) It's been said a million times before.
3.) People will see what they want to see and that goes for both sides of the argument.

Rather than watch this devolve into a travesty, I'm stepping out after this post, but just know you were given a heads up.

This will get worse. Good luck though.

Yeah, I'm tired of the G-Whiners. I've been tired of them for a while. Sadly, as one person said, the only way to truly deal with them is to create some pocket universe of the year 1984 and send all of them there so that they can relive their precious childhoods forever and the rest of the TF fanbase will never have to hear them ever again. Unfortunately, we can't do that so we'll just have to live with them... for now.

Nub, i love you like a fat kid loves cake!! :P Haha
But on the real, one can only wonder why Bay & co. would even want to listen to any fan requests after death threats and such immature behavior. Certinaly makes other directors question wether or not they'd want to be invloved in future prodjects.

Oh well. I'm just going to enjoy the ride like i have for the last 5yrs.
