    A bit of a Easter Monday rant so just bear with me. So I was just thinking this while reading all the TF4 posts over the last hour or so. If bay legitimately wanted to return for the fourth movie and make it a direct sequel I believe he wouldn't of killed of so many deceptions and autobots but he did. I think we can all agree bay wanted to or at least he thought that DOTM would be the last due to the flop that was ROTF. While he probably thought that the fans would of just given up on him , he clearly didn't anticipate a fourth movie and such so he made DOTM the final film and wanted to cut himself loose from the franchise. Face facts people the only reason hes returning is cause of the deal with pain and gain. I think this easter break has done wonders to my brain and Im finally thinking straight. I dont know what hasbro was thinking, they should of let the franchise rest for a few years and rebooted without bay.

    Hasbro have been blinded by all the money Bay has made them; they seem to be under the impression that only he can handle TF live-action movies.

    The thought crossed Bay's mind as he was bathing in 100 dollar bills.

    They're going for quantity (as in cash) over quality. At this point, they could throw a turd on the wall, stamp a TF logo on it and call it TF4 and it would probably make a bazillion dollars.

    The deal with Pain and Gain likely got him back (and $$$$$) and the studio probably didn't want to chance messing with the proven success formula ($$$$$). They know he's turned out box office smashes (if not all good movies).

    ROTF was not a flop. It might be reguarded as a bad movie but it is a hit.

    Face it, Transformers means something completely different for Bay than the fans growing up on these films. As much as you may hate him, he did the job he was paid to do, make a highly profitable franchise. At least he showed the profitability of the line and opened the flood gates for more movies, shows, and action figures down the line.

    From a fans perspective, he's not the best man for the job. To me that would be Edgar Wright. But i'll take movies i sort of like despite my complaints, that make millions so i get to enjoy lots of toy lines and video games, over movies that cater to the fans, that the critics like, but which might not put bums on seats.

    It seems that Bay wanted out of the films because he was tired of working of the same movie series, and making the Transformers movies takes up a lot of time when Bay has been looking at more than just directing movies. With the actors three film contract up he likely figured well this is it so lets see if there is a script to end the series.

    Paramount is somewhat lacking in the franchises at the moment and are too timid to invest too much in new franchises so I think they are the driving force behind finding a way to bring Micheal Bay back for more of the same.

    And yea the public will likely gobble up some fourth film like they guzzle down those dull bland McDonald's cheeseburgers.

    Bc Bay wants more $$, and he wants to make bigger, and better crappy movies.
    With any luck TF4 will either just fade away, into production limbo, or maybe something will come up with a better director who will be able to do the Transformers justice.

    Why would the stakeholders risk a new format and director when they could just throw more money at Bay and keep the established format with a strong brand identity and a proven financial success record?

    I hope TF4 flops so we can get a proper reboot.

    People watch Transformers for the action and the robots not a bunch of poop jokes and a whiny brat.

    A proven formula. Three mega hits in a row, each bigger than the last. The third one grossed almost a billion dollars worldwide. No one involved would go with a different director. I wouldn't--and I believe that there are several out there who would do a better job. He needs to find decent writers this time though.
