Considering how quickly the last couple of rumors concerning Transformers 4 were shot down by Michael Bay himself it should go without saying that anything we hear as this point should be taken with a grain of salt unless officially confirmed. That being said, we do have another TF4 casting rumor. ITFN is reporting that Jack Reynor has been offered the role of Mark Wahlberg's daughter's love interest. According to the report the young actor auditioned three times before being offered the role by Michael Bay himself. So far Bay as yet to confirm or deny the validity of this one.

ITFN wrote:Reynor will take over the lead role initially played by Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the original three films, which are based on the Marvel comic series. Reynor is expected to play the love interest of Mark Wahlberg’s character’s daughter.

What a conceited statement. You don't know the plot of the movie, how could you be so sure that they're unimportant? Maybe they aren't to you, but you put that remark so bluntly as if they weren't important at all.

Meh, the humans are unimportant... I want to see what the TRANSFORMERS do when the DECEPTICONS battle the AUTOBOTS. Not concerned with the life of a human boy, and his unending luck while amidst battling robots with sharp, jagged bodies where any contact during their motion would rip his body into pieces. Formulaic, unfocused, boring... that's what the new movie will be. Flame on.

They are unimportant. The only important thing is the giant robots pounding on one another. If the human acting is good kudos to Mr Bay, but it is just so unimportant to me.


BTW what does my vanity have to do with my previous post?

Who ???

Like Marky Mark wasnt bad enough...

Just bring back Shia LaBeouf and make sure theres a bottle of Johnnie Walker on the set. Maybe do a scene in a local bar with a good drunken fight scene. Thats about the only time I wanna see humans in the movie. ;)

Fist bump

Though I will probably enjoy the robots clobering the snot out of one another.

Yeah G1 really annoyed me the way the humans like Spike and Sparkplug kept getting in the way. And then they introduced those bloody Nebulons and they was getting all up in the Transformers business.

This is the Bayverse here, guys. The humans are the focal point of these films. No matter how much we wish against it, that is the sad truth of the matter.

Do we have to like that they are? No way. But are they still what these films revolve around? Sadly yes.

These films treat the title characters not as characters but as background effects and plot devices, which is how it's been done and is likely to remain that way if these films continue to be made as they have always been.

I don't like it either, but that's the way these films are. Movies 1-3 were essentially "The Adventures of Sam Witwicky Featuring some robots called the Transformers". I expect there to be little difference with the fourth one sans Mark Walhberg's character replacing Sam as the star.

I think they should crap-can the entire project! There is absolutely no plot whatsoever that they could come up with (Primus help me if you say "What about Unicron?" I will bitch-slap you for that is the WORST idea EVER!!) and all the main characters are dead or being drastically overhauled. So honestly, a 4th movie serves no other point than to reduce once respectable fellow fans to ass-scratching, knuckle dragging neanderthals squabbling over the most inane issues possible and embarrassing themselves and the rest of the fan community in the eyes of the rest of the world. At this point, given a choice between TF4, Star Wars: Ep VII or a vasectomy without anesthesia... I'll take the vasectomy and then go see the upcoming crap-fest that will be Ep. VII. And most of that decision is based on the behavior of my fellow fans!

I doubt anyone from hollywood gives a crap about this forum and its members.

There should be a poll by Seibertron members regarding the matter.

Like:
all in favor of with humans
all in favor of without humans

or:
all in favor of story centered around the TFs
all in favor of story centered around the humans

Every plot line in pop culture has been done to death anyway. It's not just Transformers.

[quote]all the main characters are dead or being drastically overhauled.[/quote]

The only "main characters" were Sam and his two girlfriends. Optimus and Bumblebee (and sometimes Megatron) were the main 'bots throughout each movie, with The Fallen and Sentinel Prime jumping in on the sequels. Everyone else had a supporting role.

Sheesh, how graphic.

Yea, but see, I'm not saying the G1 cartoon show was better (which it is), yet you bring up a good point. Even with the humans and nebulans, they were still pretty much background characters when compared to the Cybertronians. The nebulans even began as regular fleshlings, but then got interesting by combining them as headmasters and targetmasters. Anyway, my point is that humans are boring parts of the movie that I don't care about and shouldn't be such a large focus. Yea, obviously this isn't going to change, I wasn't expecting it. This is how I am so accurately able to predict the next movie sucking. It will focus on the humans.
Course there are numerous other reasons, but whatever.

Hold on a minute!

[quote]Reynor will take over the lead role initially played by Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the original three films, which are based on the Marvel comic series. Reynor is expected to play the love interest of Mark Wahlberg’s character’s daughter.[/quote]

Now, if we take the first sentence literally, is he actually playing Sam Witwicky with yet another girlfriend? Or is he simply the new lead? Wahlberg was supposed to be the 'lead guy'.

Also, "based on the Marvel comic series"?? How about: based on the (Japanese) toys? Or the 80's cartoon series? Those are surely more well known.

Also also, if all the humans are brand new, yet the film is supposed to be in continuity with TF1, RotF and DotM, that's gonna be crap. For all the screen time they stole in the previous ones, there were some funny characters among them (Simmons). Now they have to establish all-new characters in an attempt to make the audience like them. Which means lots of wasted screentime. Compare Shia's screentime in TF1 to DotM. That first hour of TF1 was tragically slow and boring.

I don't have a problem with humans in the movies (They are on Earth, after all). I do have a problem with human characters that are focused on when they have nothing to do with the story. If the movies focused on the soliders working with the Autobots, it would make sense.

Instead, the movies focus on Sam with his job hunts and girlfriends and parents and tons of other nonsense. The sequels intentually remove him from involvement from the main story and then bend over backward to work him back into the plot for no reason other than to complicate things. For parts 2 and 3 he should have been working for Nest from the get go, not spend 2/3's of the movie trying to worm his way back in.

I hope Wahlberg's character actually is involved in the plot and the romance crap with his daughter is kept to the sidelines (do we even need a daughter romance plot?)
