    ...the reboot than TF3? We all know this won't be the last TF film, but it will be the last one by Micheal Bay. I'm actually more excited to see where a new director will take it than I am about what new explosions we will see in TF3.

    **EDIT**

    Posted this further down, but apparently no one sees it.

    For those doubting a reboot, read this link.

    You're definitely jumping the gun, my friend.
    There is the possibility of a reboot, but we have to see.

    Yea I've got to say that I'm looking forward to some reboot down the road than I am Transformers 3.

    Even if they manage some improvements with the third film I've just got this feeling that the franchise in it's current form is never going to give me the movie I want. Plus I'm not sure how you get rid of the taint of things like killing Blackout with one shot to the crotch or Revenge of the Fallen without a reboot.

    At least with a reboot I could always hold out a bit of hope for a Starscream that could smirk, Decepticons not getting their butts kicked by humans, and heavens forbid a good story where the robots felt like characters instead of props in the background.

    I mean I'll end up watching the third film at some point, but it feels more like being a chore that has to be done rather than something to get excited about.

    Uh uh uh HATER ALERT! EVERYONE, SHUN THIS USER!

    If robotic ballsacks and dogs humping were not satisfying to you, then I am sorry but perhaps you need to lower your expectations a little because those scenes MADE the movie okay.

    A reboot will greatly depend on the box office results of the movie (which will inevitably be epic) and critical and public reaction to the movie. If people hate it, and it leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth, I highly doubt Paramount or another studio would be in much of a rush to start it over. At least not for a while...

    Now a fully CGI animated movie.... I can see that maybe.

    Even if they did reboot it, theres no guarantee that it would be a trilogy. The general audience will get bored with Tformers so the gross revenue will go down so whomever the director and producers would be, they wouldn't continue it

    No. Apart from the quick script changes that must have resulted from the Fox fiasco, everything about this movie is looking more promising than Revenge. And I liked Revenge.

    I mean, I don't even LIKE Nascar, and those cars look sweet as shit. That combined with Shockwave, who I prefer to Megatron, the return of Prime's trailer, and finally a human anti-transformer movement, and the action and general plot look to be improved. If only they included Hound...

    He was killed by air strike + crotch shot from what I remember.

    And no, I dont want a reboot at all. Sequel set 20 years later like TFTM did will do.

    I'm excited for both.

    I'm excited to see how this series will end.

    However, I'm also excited to see what other artistc directions can be taken with the property. (I honestly don't think there won't be a reboot somewhere down the road)

    I'll believe it's the last, when it actually is the last.

    Bash ROTF and movie 1 all you want, but it sold bucket loads of tickets and DVD units. It's a success to paramount. Will they reboot a universe that continues to be a success? Nope. The only way a reboot will happen entirely, is if this one flops. In which case, the line as a whole suffers anyway.

    Hate bay all you want, but this is a business, and so long as it's successful, it's nothing but good things all around.

    Bay says a lot of things that end up not being true. So I still expect a 4 and 5 down the road if this one banks yet again. Though maybe they'll take a break for awhile first. 3 movies in a row of the same subject material can get overwhelming for the same crew. Give em a year break or something, so they can come back fresh.

    I have to agree here. I'll watch the third fi;lm on cable, but no way will I pay to see it in a theatre. I've learned my lesson and I cannot believe Bay and company could give us a film where the Transformers are the central characters and the Decepticons are both a threat and are given characterization of their own with any depth to it.

    Incorrect. The Spider-Man films all made money, even the third.

    It's getting a reboot anyway.

    There is more to this all than just money. People stake out territories and want to make their own mark on a property, too.

    The reboot should be handled by Shane McCarthy, or Mike Costa, or Andy Schmidt, with Pat Lee on art duties:drunk

    Are you serious with yourself? You honestly think we'll see "reboots" anytime soon? Maybe more SEQUELS directed by someone else, but not reboots. Regardless of the quality of these BayFormer films, they have been MASSIVELY successful, unlike say 2003's "HULK".

    I don't know Hollywood is sort of a play it safe business when it comes to summer films because they put so much money into them now. Even if Transformers 3 doesn't bring as much money as the second film I'm sure it's not going to flop so hard that Hollywood will never touch Transformers again.

    Pirates 3 was bad enough to be the butt of many jokes about stinker films and yet next summer there is a Pirates 4 because they think they can mine another big box office out of it even after the third film. Spiderman gets his reboot after a bad third film. X-Men get another movie even though X-Men 3 was horrible and Wolverine was bad enough that it could have been shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    Hollywood is the land of excuses so if Transformers 3 doesn't have the box office they could have dreamed of they will just say something like Cars 2 on June 24th took away too much of the kids market, the very last Harry Potter movie on July 15th stole all the summer buzz, people were still mad about the summer crop of films in 2010, or 3D was slowing down.

    If the box office slows that gives them an excuse to reboot since Hollywood loves that hey guys it's brand new, but not so brand new that it is something risky for us. There is some risk that Transformers 3 might make less if you factor out the extra money from 3D, but only the craziest of crazy haters would predict any sort of a flop at this point.

    No, I'm looking forward to Transformers 3 more. For one thing we don't even know if there's going to be a reboot yet. There's been talk about it sure, but it's not definite yet. They could still make a Transformers 4 with another director if Transformers 3 makes enough money. I'm hoping that happens, because I do not want a reboot yet.
