I figured this was worthy of a new thread, but I'll just post it here for now. They're trying to turn the movies into a cinematic universe. This is the best news I've heard in forever. I've never been so excited for anything. The TF universe is simply far too vast to have just one guy behind every movie. This way, the franchise gets the depth and focus it deserves. This idea is perfect.

Know why the Marvel Cinematic Universe succeeds?

Because it has well established characters to draw on, because it was, and is, a long term plan all craftily woven together.

Know why a Transformers Cinematic Universe will fail?

Because they've only established half a dozen characters. Yes, as TF fans we can say there's lot of other characters they can draw from, but outside of IDW comics, there's not that many "well established".

Of course, this is all just rumour. However, were it to come to fruition, it would be a fail.

Don't bother arguing with me Sly, your opinion regarding this is already known, I know what you're going to say, so don't waste your time because I just won't listen.

Exactly what I was thinking when reading the article.

I think it might be real though. There are several other articles on the same topic I believe, but it could be one big rumor that spread through out the internet(I hope!).

Anyways, no one can pull together a story as great as Marvel's the way Marvel did it. It would most definitly fail for Transformers if they do it this late in the game.

Paramount looks to expand Transformers film franchise with spin-offs and more sequels

Earlier today, Deadline reported exclusively that Paramount is looking to follow the footsteps of studio rivals Marvel, Disney and Fox. Paramount apparently has plans to expand the Transformers "Universe" with additional sequels and spin-offs in a similar fashion to the Marvel Universe films, Star Wars and the upcoming Avatar films. Paramount is in negotiations with Akiva Goldsman who is credited as a writer, director, executive producer and more according to Wikipedia.

Deadline.com wrote:EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures wants more Transformers. Taking a page from Fox’s incubation of three Avatar sequels and what Disney is doing to revive Star Wars with a sequels and spinoffs, the studio is negotiating with Akiva Goldsman to work with franchise director Michael Bay, exec producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a “writer’s room” that will incubate ideas for a potential multi-part Transformers sequel, and come up with potential spinoff films based on the billion-dollar franchise culled from the Hasbro toy line.


You can read the full article on Deadline.com.

What does these mean for Transformers fans? Could a Beast Wars film franchise be on the horizon? A film that takes place on Cybertron? Could we see Unicron on the big screen? Might this be a chance for a real reboot? Could the Transformers finally be taken seriously as characters in a similar fashion to Marvel's characters instead of as plot devices?

They... They already have a cinematic universe, and which only works thanks to John Barber making everything that needs to fit together, well, fit together (since the movies themselves and alone couldn't bother to do that).

That is, until Age of Extinction came along to muck everything up again with its even bigger middle finger to continuity. >:oP

Great. This means a lot more Bay formers clogging up the toy isle, and continuing to confuse people when I mention I'm a Transformers fan.

How about if we put the IDW blokes in charge of the writing?

Hey, I'm all for more money making vehicles to fuel my fan lust for Generations.

And if thy want more movies, they'll need more directors, which means Mr. Bay won't be directing EVERY SINGLE ONE.

This sounds good to me. I'd love to see some Transformers films directed by someone other than Michael Bay and hopefully written by someone other than Ehran Krueger.

Spin-offs? From THIS continuity? Is there even a continuity here? What would the movies even be about? So far they've spent more time focusing on horny teenagers than the Transformers. It'd almost make more sense to give THEM their own spin-off movies, since the bots have been relegated to secondary character status! RUINED FOREVER! AGAIN! lol

It's happened before with the comics and novels.

MegaDump wrote:Is there even a continuity here?
There is. Or, at least, there was, until AOE came along. Prior to that movie, John Barber made it all work out in the end, but then AOE came along and made everyone's head spin again.

Films on Cybertron and even Beast Wars films being live action makes no sense from an economic standpoint and Akiva has written some fairly competent films like Batman Forever and Cinderella Man.

Of course we can't have films on Cybertron or in the Beast Era. We can't shill hyper-expensive concept cars in the former or have blisteringly obnoxious human stars in the latter. :grin:

In what way exactly... He did write that movie, did he not? And was it not famous for the unnecessary Bat nipples and ass shots? Maybe it wasn't written into the script, but that's a great resume enhancement. Unless I've hurt your feelings, and at the same time identified the one person who liked that steamy pile.
