    Really didn't feel like any sort of confirmation. A very nice pitch for Bumblebee but it don't exactly tell what they are going to do after Bumblebee.

    It's not a reboot Bumblebee takes place Twenty years before the events of the first film, after this movie then we'll have a reboot most likely

    There’s enough in this movie for people to connect the dots to the previous movies, and there’s enough different that if they decided to reboot they could use bumblebee as the starting point. They’re pulling an X-men first class. It was stated as a prequel but ended up rebooting the timeline/continuity. Basically if this does really well they might cancel all plans and just use this movie as the start of the reboot.

    It’s commonly said that people don’t know what they want until they have it.

    As for Bumblebee, while it established that it isn’t a reboot movie, the totally different emotional core/tone of the move along with a largely new visual aesthetic tells me that it probably should have been the reboot.

    Oh shit, excellent pitch for a Days of Future Past style timeline reset for a sequel right there.

    I think that IF the Bee movie will be successful then they're going to make it a reboot. If it won't be, then they're going to discard it with the rest of the Bayverse. I have a very strong suspicion that this is why they're avoiding to clearly call it a reboot or a continuation - to keep their options open.


    The Bayhemverse is done and dead one way or another.

    I hope they don't use this to start a reboot, it has too many things leftover from the Bayverse, my main issue is him still having the Bay face.

    Just because there were loose ends left doesn't mean squat in terms of anybody being obligated to actually finish the plot lines they are part of. If rebooting is what Paramount thinks will make Transformers profitable again in the wake of TLK, then they'll drop any an all notion of continuing to be in the old continuity.

    "tonally different" should be the subtitle of this movie, as much as the phrase gets used here.
