With the success of Transformers Dark of the Moon speculation is already starting to swirl around the possibility of future films. Producer Don Murphy has chimed in with his thoughts on the future of movie franchise through his message board:

"What happens next? Certainly not a reboot. We haven't lost the Transformers. They didn't grow up or become expensive like Toby Maguire. I don't know what happens next. I'm pretty sure there will be a second trilogy. I am pretty sure it will kick ass. And I am pretty sure some of you will hate it because it wasn't all bots."

Saw this coming. Hasbro is making WAY too much money to stop making the movies. Everytime they release a movie their TF toy profits quadruple. Dreamworks is making WAY too much money to stop making the movies. Each of the first two resulted in a profit of at least 400%. The REAL question: who will be taking the reigns?

Aw, what's wrong Don? Feeling's hurt because some people dared to have complaints about your film?

You know what, you're right. Shia and his stuttering was the real reason I loved the movies. Hell, get Ashton Kutcher for the next trilogy and it'll really kick ass.

sounds good to me...i was worried they would start making movies as if the first 3 didnt exist. Im not ready to see anorexic optimus prime from TF animated on screen just yet. I grew up on G1 TFs and I love the movie designs contrary to some peoples liking. I seen the post about the guy from the Crank and Transporter movies supposedly being up for the lead role.(vomits in mouth and swallows it at the thought) I not sure how that would pan out nor am i sure of how they could possible expand the story beyond decepticons trying to take over earth and autobots save the day. it will be interesting to see how it works out. If Saw, Jason Vorhees, and Harry Potter can have around 10 theatrical movies, then damn it, us transformer fans deserve the same! :BOT:

Agreed.. There are plenty of characters that can be introduced as the new villains...

Main/leaders
Galvatron (unicron could reformat him somehow)
Thunderwing
Jihaxus
Unicron


Soldiers..
Come on, take your pick..

They could bring Kup in to fill Ironhide's spot..

A lot of potential here.

If there will be a new movie, it should follow G1. Since Megatron is dead, Unicron finds him and revives him, turning him into Galvatron. That would be a nice movie.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Please let it be a reboot!

I don't dislike the Michael Bay trilogy, but he has run that whole continuity into the ground! Please give us a new continuity, and new robot designs! G1 is a great mythology, and it deserves to be truly, faithfully represented on film!

Ashton could bring his camera and it could turn into Reflector. And he could go around punking folks while wearing 70's era clothing.

Jason Statham is a good action guy, but he seems a better GI JOE fit than Transformers. Of course, he could always be a soldier, or ex-navy seal of some sort, but not really a main character in the TF Universe that I can think of. He reminds me of Springer in his toughness/cockiness, but yeah, that's about it.

(all said in fun by the way... no seriousness at all).

No reboot is fine - now that they have their new audience and mountains of cash, they really don't need my small amount of money or fandom anymore. Makes it that much easier to jump onto FansProjects new continuity. You know, where they actually embrace what transformers once was. Might cost a bit more per figure, but at least I have the full respect of a group of artists, engineers, and storytellers that I choose to support. Thanks for the memories, Hasbro. Enjoy your continued financial success. Hello, FansProjectCore.

Um, have you seen any G1 epsiodes lately? I bought season 3 on DVD so I could see the episode with Chromia, Elita-1, Moonracer, Firestar, etc- couldn't recall having seen it as a child. I grew up collecting all the toys (unfortunately few of which survive), reading the comic books, watching the shows... they were a nice childhood memory, but seeing them now? Let's just say they're not the pinnacle of animation, continuity, or writing. Personally, I think G1 had it's shot with the 1986 movie.

EASY to continue.throw in a dvd extra scene with sentinel and megatron ith all dead decepticons wakes up in a dark moon like place with fire everywhere.with the fallen sitting on a thrown welcoming them and renames megatron to galvatron and sentinel to nemisis prime.then talk someshit abt dark energon .antimatrix etc and then introduce them to unicron and end with a line like we will now how our revenge or something.and zoom in to unicron in the background sealed.but not in planet mode more like the mode he is wen he first fought primus eons aho

I joked to my firends that there was an extra final scene where Megatron looks at the camera and shouts I AM GALVATRON!, now it could happen....

And thus we see the final ugly face of the franchise leaders.

"Thanks for the money, but we still don't give a damn."

Thankfully, I've never contributed to the Bayformers moneypot, and thus can watch from the sidelines and laugh and laugh (and cry).

The reason why they are saying this, and the reason that they HAVE to do this, is because Disney will offer Hasbro a considerable amount for the Transformers Film Franchise.

If Dreamworks doesn't get another film going ASAP to show Hasbro that they're ready to play, then Hasbro will take the property to Dreamwork's rival studio, Disney, who will never ever let go of it. Just like the Muppets.

So this has nothing to do with "Characters," or "More Stories to tell," and has everything to do with cranking out another rushed series of terrible films made by people who don't care.

Hurray.

theres so much mythos to explore.since this is movie erse they can wrap anything they like.the could use the dead universe as the place were the transformers go after they die.or they could have dinobots and beast based tranformers now since transformers isnt a secret anymore.thye could explore the prime before sentinel and after the orginal decendants.find more refugee transformers or heck even bring in something like primas sword as the transformers version of excalbier and its the only thing that can defeat unicron etc etc.since the continuinity doesnt make sense anyways why not play with exsiting thing s and make a new universe.but the things i wanna see most is galvatron,unicron etc and best of all sixshot or maybe even a story on how optimus prime becomes nemiisis prime since the movieverse optimus is so violent anywyas.and bring in ultramagnus or hot rod or someone to stop im and take the mantle of auto bot leader.millions of stories and moviescould be made

Sure, who wants a Transformers movie where the bots are the central characters anyway? We all know how bad Avatar was because they put the main focus on the CGI characters instead of the humans. I mean, why take that risk?
