    In an interview, Lorenzo de AceVentura (idkwtf his last name is) said that Bumblebee and Optimus would be the obvious ones returning. It has also been confirmed that Shia and Rosie won't return. My point is, why would Bee be in the movie if Sam isn't? He's got the whole guardian thing that he has to attend, but he can still chill with the rest of the Autobots? I'm not saying it's a surefire thing, but it can be done.
    Of course it's possible that among the stragglers on Earth, a leader arises.
    Sure, some random Decepticon from space somewhere can show up with his army.
    Maybe Unicron can show up and revive them all (but that'd be a total cop-out).
    I'm just saying that it is increasingly possible that TF4 will be a prequel to the movies, showing either the Great War or the Final Days of Cybertron before everyone jumped ship.
    I know they wouldn't get their oodles of Chevy sponsorships, but still.

    I know I would actually prefer a prequel, since I am completely tired of the humans' screen-time. I would also love to finally see some Cybertronian Alternate Modes other than Megatron's "Armjet" from TF1 and tank from TF2.

    Also: we would get to see Jazz again! Huzzah! Possibly even a young Jetfire, or heck, even a talking Bumblebee (without the Alfred Pennyworth voice).

    Y'know. Except for that part where they explicitly say it picks up where DOTM left off.

    You don't need someone to protect in order to blast a 'Con in the face. ;)

    They could always make it take place in the future so they can have an excuse for Shia and Rosie not being there.

    I mean what in the fuc* why wouldn't bumblebee not be in the movies. Well why the hell was he in G1 then. He wasn't always spikes guardian dude cmon. But it's a reimageing of the series that takes place after dotm

    This^ And the fact that he already stated that it will not be a prequel.

    From what they described, it will be on the not-so-distant-but-still-distant future, like some ten years from now.

    Unless it takes in the future, sam is older, and they hire a new cast.

    So the 4th movie will literally be the ending of the 3rd, since the 3rd just ended

    OP do you have a link to your quote from Lorenzo?

    No one has said if TF4 is pinking up where DOTM left off or if it is a prequel, though I have quoted and sourced an article that says Michael Bay is reimagining the transformers which to me gives it a pre-quel vibe

    I would like a decent jazz toy again (HA is great though)... But I really hope that it's a prequel even if it's unlikely, we need new characters like prowl and grimlock (Grimlocks not gonna happen though)

    I was quoting that because in the interview he said that Optimus and Bumblebee would have to return.

    I know... I wasn't intending to suggest you had said that.
