An interview between Mark Wahlberg and Collider's Christina Radish, for the upcoming Ted 2 movie, adds to the previous rumblings that Michael Bay will return as the director to the 5th installment of the Transformers series.

It's a short quote which went like this:

Collider: Do you have any update on the status of Transformers 5? Have you heard anything about what’s going on?

WAHLBERG: I don’t. Just that Akiva [Goldsman] and those guys are starting to write and break stories, and stuff like that. But [Michael] Bay is in Malta shooting Benghazi, and I’m in New Orleans shooting Deepwater. We’ll get together when he gets back.

Do you think he'll still ultimately direct it?

WAHLBERG: Yes.


Do you think Michael Bay will still ultimately direct it? Do you hope he does? Sound off in the Energon Pub!

Best news I've heard all 2015. This just made my day. Can't wait to see this movie. Might even bring in more than Avengers did!

Time to cue the fan rage from all the ignorant masses that still seem to think that Bay was the one who was 100% responsible for destroying their childhood.

Go ahead folks, I could use a good laugh this morning. >:oP

I don't blame Bay for Everything, but you can't deny that he has a lot of clout in his decision making.

The first film was undeniably awesome, even for it's flaws. I really appreciate Bay's talent for destruction and practical special effects. And the Decepticons were mostly a scary shadowy threat.

ROTF, on the other hand, I do blame him for, because of the writer's strike. He specifically requested that Devastator have "wrecking balls." And he helped design the twins. Although admittedly, I think I like it better than AOE.

DOTM was definitely a step in the right direction, and was mostly enjoyable, if a bit long.

AOE was pretty disappointing to me, as the Dinobots felt like last minute additions; the plot was less coherent than ROTF; and the movie was tooooooooo daaaaaaaaamn loooooooong. And too many characters. And Nicola Peltz. Terrible.

Well, the first movie was good.
I have given up on a good live action movie for now.

How about hasbro giving us a good animated movie, just like the quality movies that DC releases to DVD.

The Dinobots were actually supposed to debut in 5 with minor hints to them in 4 but Hasbro pretty much made Bay and the writer team shove them in for marketing reasons.



In other words Dinobots were a last minute addition just like Jolt in ROTF.

THIS IS NOT A CONFIRMATION BAY IS BACK!



This is an actor saying he thinks Bay will return


Just saying this in case some people misread the title and article.

I don't want to live on this planet anymore. It doesn't end! If this is true, you should put the expectation that Bay will still be directing Transformers in the next 1000 years. His clones or cyborg self...whatever. There is a point of no return, and I think we passed it with TF sadly. TF has jumped the shark everybody!

Sigh...what depressing news. ( I know even if it's a rumor, we all know it's going to be true. I may not like his movies, but I think Bay isn't stupid, he's not going to walk away from a chance to make millions)

Something like this makes want to die?



I'm sorry but there is more to life then fictional robots from your childhood that most of the time other people don't care about.



(Most people don't care about other peoples childhoods and not just for Transformers just other childhoods in general because were a horrible species)

Or move to a another planet.

Frankly I'd prefer a space colony since that sounds cooler to me, but that's just me. He can go to whatever planet he wants. :P

Doesn't matter where you go, you're bound to pick up a stray transmission and next thing you know you're watching a Bay TF movie.

Alternatively, people could stop clicking on movie related news, ignore the movie related sub-forum, and ignore the movies when they come out in theatres and then on DVD/Blu-Ray. >:oP

sorry I meant to allude to the Professor Farnsworth meme from Futurama. Not literally thankfully :). Though your point is fair. But I'm not actually concerned about Bay because he "ruined my childhood" as many like to say. I think my childhood is always there, you can always open G1 or whatever cartoon/ memories. And it's fair to expect that Bayformers have contributed to other people's childhoods perhaps even more so than mine. My gripe with Bay really stems from bad movies and scripts. The loss of potential is what makes me want to move to another planet ..or colony. With 200 million dollars as a budget, surely we should get better movies by now.

Just saw this article, dated today:

Take it for what it is, just a collection of rumors and factoids at this early stage. I know nothing about that website, just stumbled across the article. FWIW.

Saw this same article on another site months ago. It's not really saying anything new, and the fact that it says Megan Fox was removed from the cast in the 4th movie shows what the people who wrote it know.
