    Michael Bay was the best when it came to filming military soldiers for his films, or was greatly welcomed to use tanks and access to shooting locations in the past films. One grat achievement, or so it's been said, was filming on the Pyramids of Giza/Israel.

    I've read somewhere that Bay begun his career shooting car commercials, which explains his gorgeous shots of BB, Prime or any other vehicles we've seen in his past TF films.

    Now Bay is gone.

    Will car companies be more leniant for future films knowing how successful these films have been?
    Will the military be more easy going with a new director that isn't Bay when it comes to filming sites or using air force or vehicles?

    Those are my main concerns if there are plans for a TF4.

    Bay started his career doing Got Milk commercials I think.

    Anyone can do military shots they want to advertise. Michael Bay just gets the cool shit the public eye normally wouldn't see. In TF1 it was Starscream F-22 model and in ROTF the ship Destroyer and the rail gun.

    Usually i like the military presence in movies and i even complain that they are often displayed weak in movies like Cloverfield, Aliens etc. But in Transformers? Come on, the US military stole the show of the Autobots and Decepticons!
    Imagine a Marvel movie where the military kicks more a$$ than the superhero!
    Is that any good?

    we'll have to wait for Capt. America then. lol.
    but everyone should remember that the reason the military is a big presence in the Tf movies is that the TFs are so expensive and difficult to animate that they need something else to use during action scenes to keep the pace going. I ust hope people don't think a new TF movie wouldnt be another corporate whore, cause it kinda has to be with name brand vehicles and what not.

    Really glad this production team doesn't do superhero movies.

    You'd get something like Spiderman vs the Sinister Six only it was the cops and some regular kid who stop the super villains instead of Spiderman.

    Or they would do an X-Men movie but they would kill off Magneto in the first film because they can't come up any ending except lets kill enough bad guys until we can call it an ending.
