Transformers 4 won't hit theaters until June of 2014, but the rumors are already starting to fly. The latest rumor making the rounds originates from Spoiler TV and states that the new human leads will be a female high school senior and her boyfriend, a race car driver from Texas. Director Michael Bay has stated on several occasions that the film will feature a new cast, both human and robotic, but keep in mind that no source of any kind was cited. Multiple entertainment websites have picked up on this rumor and ran with it, but it should be taken with a grain of salt for the moment.

Spoiler TV wrote:It looks like Transformers 4 will have 2 new leads.

The new female lead that they are looking for is a high school senior and her boyfriend a Texas racing driver.

And I'm already cringing. Yikes.

Was looking forward to a new direction. But this sounds like more of the same problems that plagued the last 3 films. I love the TF movies in spite of their flaws, but was hoping for a truly new direction at this point. I knew Michael Bay was onboard but was hoping that he'd know to get away from the problems of the first 3 films.

Demographics and ASSUMED audience demand. With Shia the first time around, he wanted the audience to relate to the protag.

I don't know; maybe he thinks since ass-kicking hot chicks are popular among the anime/manga crowd (many of whom might also be TF fans), the new protag should be a high school girl.

OR, he just wanted to save on budget, and instead of hiring a lead actor and an obligatory piece of female eye candy, he'd just kill two birds with one stone.

The redneck BF is most likely just for comic relief.

Just theories, though.

P.S. I'm also pissed off that he didn't have a NEST agent star in TF4. I'm as tired of this high school alien-contact BS as you are.

You nailed it. Another commercialized pos with with the target market of core fans being far out of sight. The first bit of news, rumour or not, should have been about the Transformers themselves... :BANG_HEAD:

Calm down. This is just a rumor. An uncited rumor at that.

Just keep in mind that this is just a rumor at this point with according to the website, no real merit. Still a chance there could be a different direction taken.

Either way i don't think were going to get away from the boy girl love enterest. one way or another its going to make its way into the next few films. Thats just what the yound demographic demands now-a-days unfortunutly.

I've kept that in mind as well as the fact that I've been covering "news" and information about the live action Transformers films for almost 10 years. Hard to believe, huh? 2003 was the first time that we reported news about one of the live action Transformers films. What I've kept in mind is that I've often been disappointed after holding on to hope for certain things that the fanboy in me wants to see on the big screen.

This time around, I'm going to keep my expectations in check and will hopefully be pleasantly surprised.

What's bad about this rumor is that it sounds like something that would totally happen. I really wish this new one wouldn't be a 'through the eyes of a human' story again... >:oP

this better not be true cause if it is then its already slated to suck more than the last 3, if bays bright idea is to just make sam into a girl than hes dumber & lazier than i thought. If your not going to ditch the humans then at least get rid of the damn kids, why cant we just have NEST soldiers as the main human characters? And dont tell me it wont work cause if that were the case GIJOE wouldve died out a long long time ago. Oh and for those of you saying "this is just a rumor" just look back at the last 3 movies and recall how many "rumors" were fact. Yes there is still a chance that this is just a rumor thats being thrown out there to see reactions or because someone was really bored but i wouldnt be at all surprised if its confirmed within the next few months.

At least they're still bringing up the little piece of story that it will go into outer space. Humans have very limited activity in space, so hopefully that will shift focus on the Transformers themselves. Maybe we'll see some cool space battles like in the Star Wars series, or the humans will be in only the 1st half or something...?

I'm glad the movies made money for Hasbro but I can't stand the sight of them.
They're all just that awful and hollow.

Hopefully whenever Bay quits there'll be a reboot years later by someone who doesn't make a jumbled laughingstock of the franchise.

Anyone else but me remember the "leaked" script to Transformers 3, with them going into space and much G1 goodness?
That's what people want. That's what would have skyrocketed Transformers into overdrive.

It's profitable right now, but the movies are just ass.

No, that's what a group of fans want.

Given how successful the movies have been, I think it's obvious that "the people" got what they wanted.

You're asking a lot from Michael Bay. He is one trick pony. The problems in the first three movies are in every Michael Bay movie. It's exactly why I refuse to give this movie a chance.

I'm not even sure "the people" know what they want. The theory that you can't want what you don't realize is possible is coming to mind. Experience tells me that the kind of garbage Michael Bay makes is what people expect, demonstrating lowered expectations by "the people" more than a true desire for this kind of movie.

In other words, I think they got what they expected and confused it with what they wanted.

I still refuse to believe people actually go to see an action sci-fi film expecting there to be a human love story. It's total bull. A film can focus on non-humans without problem, as long as they are well characterized. As a teen, I used to watch cartoons about dogs and superheroes and monsters on tv. Nowadays all I see on children's networks (ages 4-16 mind you) is high school crap about good-looking though unpopular quirky tweens. It sickens me what today's kids have to watch.

If the rumours of a new cast of robots are true, I've honestly lost all interest in this movie.

At the VERY least, if this movie sucks (which it 100% absolutely will. Let's not kid ourselves here, this will be our 4th time at the same rodeo), it will be an entire season saving money/catching up on back log figures. Also, more cash for third party beauties. That's as positive as I can spin it, lol.
