News Post: Lorenzo di Bonavetura Explains The Mid-Credit Scene From Transformers: Bumblebee
What an idiot.
FACT: lorenzo di bonavetura loves sniffing glue
Further proof Lorenzo refuses to let the Bayverse die no matter how nonsensical the justfication. \"In our minds\" means jack shit to the audience and means he can easily go back on his words if the call from on high says \"this is a reboot because that\'s what most people want\".
What a slimy two faced piece of trash.
This is what I suspected all along. There's no issue here in my mind. I'm perfectly fine with this being the case.
Except Prime never said that. He said he wanted to establish a base on Earth.
It doesn\'t make any sense. I think he\'s saying it to be safe before it\'s decided that they\'ll reboot it.
I kind of get what he's trying to say, but why does he feel the need to explain it? That scene by itself made sense already. The movie was good. Maybe let Travis Knight talk about it so we can all still have hope
That scene isn't the biggest discrepancy.
That would be the Transformers not discovering earth until 1987 when the previous movie went painstakingly out of its way to say otherwise to the point of Bumblebee WW2 flashbacks.
Just admit it's a friggin' reboot already!
Can he please explain the WWll thing? I guess it still happend?
I want him to explain how he's still a part of this friggin' franchise!!!
This scene isn't even a contradiction, is the thing. There's an established reason for the Autobots to leave Earth again over the next 20 years (to look for the AllSpark), plus, by making it so that Bumblebee lost his voice on Earth instead of on Cybertron, the story necessitates that the Autobots come to Earth and meet him (or that he leaves the planet and meets them) so that Ratchet can be familiar with his condition and have already worked on him when they meet again in the 2007 film. The opening scene, that's where the contradiction lies (but of course, all it contradicts is TLK, not the 2007 movie itself).
it has to be a reboot simply because in tlk bumblebee was on earth in ww2, whereas in bumblebee it was his first time on earth
Yeah, that explanation is total horseshit.
I'm very happy to read that di Bonaventura was willing to sacrifice some continuity for the sake of story; that's much more important.
Besides, as others have pointed out, the Bay films contradicted themselves left and right. Each one was basically an alternate-universe sequel to the ones before it.
Like how "O Lucky Man" was a sequel to "If..." despite how "If..." ended. That's right. That's my comparison.
Contracts and I suspect favoritism from Goldner.
Either way, its shit like this that justify my decision to not see Bumblee in theatres. Nothing has changed so long as diBowelmovement can continue to assert nothing is wrong with the bay continuity. Lorenzo must go before I'll even consider such a thing again.
(Only because the gif wouldn’t upload)
I’m not the biggest fan of di Bonaventura, but I can’t wait for the inevitable name calling and trash talking that almost always happens when hes mentioned. It doesn’t make sense, though. Prime never said that they would leave, and there was never any indication in Transformers 2007 that they had been here 20 years beforehand.
