    Already? And just two years too. Wonder if they're almost ready or have begun/finished anything yet.

    Looks like we will be seeing mostly movie figures for quite some time.

    ^ Hasbro mentioned the brand is having major product over the next few years, so I wouldn't be surprised. Not much major time/budget for anything else.

    Wow. They're setting it up so Transformers 3---which nothing has been started on yet---would open roughly the same time of year that the first movie had hit theaters?

    Like they said, no confirmation yet from Michael Bay as to whether that's the official release date for Transformers 3. Though I probably do imagine it will be out sometime in 2011.

    Uh...wow. I wasn't expecting that. Bay already said he's taking a year off, so either he's shelving his other projects in favor of TF3, or he's being paid extra to put that vacation on hold. Hmm.

    I'm sure there's a chance this could change by the time 2011 rolls around, but if they're already leaking info, they must have plans to keep it that way.

    The second film hasn't even hit screens yet and we're already given a date for the sequel...isn't that a bit risky?

    Bay got the ball rolling, #3 could be the time for someone else top step in and do their take. wouldn't mind seeing a new human cast at that time too.

    An official release date already? Wow. Shows you that there's obviously some kind of cliffhanger along with ROTF leading to another one. And then eventually a fourth, probably. But that's just early speculation.

    I agree. hopefully 3 doesn't disappoint the chain, like matrix did to me.

    Marvel tried the same thing with their four film projects in development, and last week went and changed every release date but one. I think this is another case of impossible planning brought to us by studio executives who have never worked a single day in their lives. Unless they're already begun to do secret pre-production work or plan on replacing Bay (who was planning to take a year off, and well earned I might say), then there is no way this is getting done before 2012.

    While I welcome this news and I hope it's all true, I'm going to sit back and wait for something official from Paramount about three days after RotF's release.

    yeah, i'm gonna go with the general crowd and guess it gets pushed to 2012, especially if "teh Bay" wants to direct again ~ this isn't that unusual though, studios frequently stake out dates well in advance, kind of territorial pissing as it were...

    Interesting move here. Plot developments should prove interesting.
