Transformers will end in the dark of the moon?
Bay's already said he intends for this one to be the final movie of the series.
He may or may not go ahead and make a 4, but it's not likely.
This movie will make a ton of money. Of course there will be a TF4, just a different director, but Bay is a liar, so...
Yeah, just 'cause Bay wants it to be done, doesn't mean Hasbro does, they like the money, just needs a new director, and they could even do new continuities. Movies aren't done, even if Bay is.
I think prequel is next....
I wouldn't mind a Reboot
Probably, and hopefully, not.
I know what I would love to see as the 4th movie, but I doubt Hasbro will do a live action Beast Wars movie.
Personally I hope there isn't a fourth movie for a while.
At some point a reboot would be nice, but I don't want things to rush into yet another movie in the Bay style. I'd like the series to sit until they could make something different.
I would love a prequel, personally, but it may get a bit difficult for two reasons. On one hand, you could do it all on Cybertron, but all that CGI will be extremely expensive. On the other hand, you could focus on what happened on Earth before Sam bought Bumblebee, but that would have a pretty heavy human focus.
As for a sequel, what else could be done? ROTF had The Fallen himself, the fourth movie will have
the exile of the Autobots and Shockwave coming to Earth
. This raises the question how the Decepticons could possibly up the ante any further. Unicron? Seems unlikely, though I'd like to see it done.
Yes the Franchise Ends with TDOTM
There will most definately be a fourth movie, but if it'll be TF4 or a reboot, only time will tell. It's highly likely that Bay's not going to return and that someone else will take over, though.
Bay has said he wants this to be the last one he does, but obviously he doesn't control whether or not more movies get made.
And I bet that if they threw enough money at him he'd do fifty more...
Without Bay, the most likely direction for the live action movies is reboot-ville. That seems to be the "hip" thing to do these days. (See what's going on with the Spider-man movies for a prime example.)
And if they're not a total reboot, then I see the next one(s) as only generally following the Bay Trilogy's continuity.
Three movies are enough.
Considering we haven't even got the third movie in theaters, how could you possibly know the plot to the fourth movie, in order to need a spoiler tag?
This and hopefully with a more classic look to the bots and cons meaning more in line with the various cartoon designs as opposed to the bay style designs while keeping the engineering quality.
Hasn't this been spoiled already? Seems like we saw photos of
Shockwave's (head) on Earth with Soundwave's head.
A few months ago on this site.
I expect a reboot after this one. Hopefully the War For Cybertron designs will be a signpost for the new robot appearances for starters.
they'll set it up just like POTC:AWE(aka POTC 3) did over at Disney: end one trilogy then give subtle hint that will lead to start of a whole new trilogy with certain core lead characters returning but will have new director
TF4-6 = Unicron Trilogy
FYI: Keith Richards will be reprising his role as Captain Jack's Dad in POTC:On Stranger Tides(aka POTC 4)
