    "..hit theaters this summer.."?

    Eh... no.

    Hopefully he sticks to his statements and does get more into the robot characters. Perhaps into the ones that were introduced in ROTF.

    I'll be a lot less forgiving in my assessment of the 3rd movie since there shouldn't be a writers strike this time around.

    I think that was a mistake. Next summer to be exact.

    That sounds good. At least Bay seems focused on exactly what he wants to do with this installment. Although I'd rather keep it to a trilogy, if TF3 can be smaller scaled then I'm all for a tremendous conclusion with TF4.

    Hmm, interesting. Even though this is supposed to be in relation to the sounds of the movie, it still gives us hope that Bay just might finally be giving the robots some much needed characterisation attention.

    "A much cooler landscape"? What could that be referring to?

    Do I smell a return to Cybertron?

    Less humans please. The only humans I want to see more of, are NEST soldiers. Let Sam and Mikaela die or something.

    A return Cybertron would be awesome. And more characters. Also, NO BALLS ON COMBINERS.

    I'm all for them. I just want less forced toilet humor and more natural situational humor from them, that's all. I think human-robot interaction was a strong point of the first film, but it proved rather mixed in ROTF. So I don't want less humans, but incorporate them more naturally.

    Yes. Please don't introduce too many new Autobots. Delve into the preestablished ones (EXCEPT BEE! ENOUGH OF HIM!) more.

    What? Michael Bay doing character deveopement and less explosions. Maybe this dimension's Michael Bay got transported away and Bizzaro Bay is taking over for TF3.

    I was taking that more literally, thinking that maybe this time the big end battle will be in the arctic.

    To be honest, I'm anticipating the third movie to be rubbish.

    If he can get rid of the pointless scenes and keep the whole story moving along at a consistent pace I'll be happy. I also don't care about a two second throwaway gag about scrotums, the fandom at large should definately try to get over that some time.

    I read some comment made not that long ago Optimus & Bumblebee will remain the focus characters for the Movie franchise, even if some of us would prefer to see a greater focus on some of the other characters also.

    I predict lots of explosions, little character development, a slew of new characters because Hasbro are afraid that the next one may be ages off, and lots of toilet humour.

    In fact, i predict so much toilet humor that a shard of the Allspark will fall into a toilet, and it will then transform in a robotic poo flinging monkey.

    I thought the same too. Probably at the "Megatron Landing Site".
    But who knows, We'll see :)
