Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Director Michael Bay spoke with MTV.com recently and revealed a big spoiler (or maybe not) concerning the upcoming sequel to the 2007 blockbuster movie.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!















In a very blase response, Michael Bay explains why he decided to kill off female Autobot Arcee.

"You know what? I didn't like Arcee," the filmmaker revealed exclusively to [MTV] Thursday night, "so I kill her later, all right?"

Not stopping there, he went on to describe his reasoning behind the death of the short lived character.

"You know what? It's like actors," he explained, comparing his Transformers to flesh-and-blood stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. "There are certain actors that blossom on screen, and there are certain others where you're like, 'Yuck, I'm cutting them out of the movie.' "

"This isn't sad," he grinned, discussing Arcee's sudden death. "This is just 'get it out and get it over with.' "


Bay also disclosed that Arcee IS NOT the motorcycle ridden by leading actress Megan Fox.

I just hope that it is better done than Jazz's death in the first one. The only reason I cared at all was because I liked Jazz from the cartoon, but I never managed to care about the film version.

Wow. That will piss off a lot of folks... (I can't wait for that. Yay.)

That might explain why her toy hasn't been shown yet or with much fanfare, also kills the "she's a combiner!" rumor.

Ah well, I hope she goes out all awesome like.

On one hand, it really depends on how he does it. It's like Blastback said; it needs to be better than how Jazz is done.

On the other hand...if I'm gonna get pissed off over this news, it's not gonna be over the fact that he's doing it itself. It's why he's doing it. It's like fraking with G1 just because you didn't like one thing or another. It just doesn't seem right to me that he's willing to kill off a character just because he doesn't like her.

Skids and Mudflap... Now those two I hope will be blown to misshaped pixels.

Honestly, if you dislike a character, you can find other ways to deal with them besides just killing them off. have them evolve into someone better, send them off on some mission that keeps them off screen, something. If a death was genuinly needed for some reason, then okay, but don't do it just because you don't care for a character.

I don't mind Arcee dying in the movie, I just hope she gets some decent screen time and plays an important enough role to at least get some different toys and CGI stock render images for wallpapers and stuff... unlike Brawl and Bonecrusher in movie #1

Shame really, motorcycle TFs add some great variety to the movie cast, why would you want to get rid of them - especially after some poor bike builder worked his ass off to make these bikes. We still don't know if "Arcee" is the pink bike, or all bikes combined.

He also said Megatron isn't in the movie, I don't believe a word he says anymore.

I honestly do not care at all what is said or romoured about this movie before I actually see it...

So, it seems Bay's reasoning for killing off Arcee is eerily similar for for his reasoning behind the death of Jazz. And as a total Jazz fanboy, this bit of news really pisses me off. My sympathies go out to all Arcee fans everywhere.

Bay is racist and sexist.
He kills the only girl (assuming that arcee is the combined form of the bikes)
And he kills the only black guy as well. :-x :APPLAUSE:

#-o Ugh, just stuff a sock in it Bay. I'm buying this just about as much as I'm buying "Megatron is only in a flashback." Just stifle your word hole until the movie is released.

Jazz was not "black".

He was voiced by a black guy, that however does NOT make a fictional character in the movie, black.

And for all we know Bay's dislike of Arcee may be based on a number of things, not just the fact she is a "she".

Think things through before posting people. He has his reasons and he doesn't need to explain them to you.

My sentiments exactly. I'm willing to wager that this statement's another whole load of misinformation, and that 'heroic' thing the fuglybros do at the end involves getting stepped on by Devastator or blown up by Fallen/Megatron.
