Mark Wahlberg Interview Hint Dinobots Involvement On Transformers 4

Posted on 07-30-2013 at 12:02 PM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Transformers-4-Dinobots
MTV had the pleasure of interviewing actor Mark Wahlberg and they dropped the good olí Dinobots question.

When asked whether there would be any Dinobots on Transformers 4 the actor replied "None of your business. You don't want me to get replaced halfway through production for divulging secrets".

Mr. Wahlberg mentioned that the new installment feels unlike anything that has come before it, thanks in part to the character he has taken on. "It feels like a completely different movie, very fresh," he said. "Obviously, it's a really interesting dynamic, being a young, single dad having a teenage daughter, trying to succeed as an inventor, having very little means and also trying to provide for my family. Then all hell breaks loose."

dont read to much into that. What his character is, is a self motivated want to be inventor. He TRIES to invent new gadgets and improve on already existing things. Hes a second hand inventor I guess is the best way to put it.

Doubt it, my guess is that he stumbles apon something and the evil human agency wants him for it, so here comes The Rally Car to save his ass.

Nice sidestep. This is like when Wheeljack was confirmed for DOTM.

Also, since we haven't gone to China, who's to say the Dinobots even have prop vehicles?
j.a.f.o.
Kind of a stretch, but

kaiju + jaeger = DINOBOTS

You catch my drift, right (no pun intended)?

Hey TF4, Dinobots please.
OptmiusPrime
Please no.

Michael bay has aleady effed uo so much.

This seems to be happening again. We are getting too many Autobots that will probably get very little characterization. I am also seeing very few Decepticons. This has me slightly concerned.
tonyformer
just my 2 cents. Im probably wrong but I think something like this MAY happen.

OP and the remaining Bots from DOTM are hunted between DOTM and now. Some may have died, and others captured. But a few managed to get away and hide (Bee and OP).

At this point, I think maybe TJ Miller's Mechanic character may somehow come across (buy of find) the old OP looking truck and tries to fix it up. But maybe Mark's character, now knowing he's some kind of do it yourself, trying to make a living but failing inventor, talks his mechanic buddy into letting him take the truck to try and improve it some how. You know maybe a new fuel system never done before, IDK. But while trying to make a new invention with this tuck he stumbles onto that its somehow alive and THINKS he's done it somehow lol. That is where the government comes in and raids his ranch and the barn that the old truck was rumored (a while back) to be hidden in.

all cgi constructs for the cons perhaps? besides the stunts of course

I actually hope this happens. But man, we better get Bruticus or Menasor to equal out the odds if this happens.

That's actually the reason why I want the Dinobots: At this point, Michael Bay might as well go all-out Simple Jack on this franchise.

Fixes Prime's arm that he lost from Sentinel Prime possibly?

No Dinobots please. Bay would just fuck them up,and personally, i don't see anything special in them.

I like this idea very much

I guess if we do have retuning bots, they'll just be in robot mode the whole time and they are only shown getting captured in the beginning and then around the end maybe they get rescued...?
RoadRage
GOD PLEASE!!!!

I want too see the Dinobot's!!!
GAUGE
what's Dirk Diggler trying to invent, a better way to sing "The Touch"?
Darkryt
This doesn't prove anything except that he doesn't want to divulge information.

"All hell breaks loose" is certainly Dinobot-sounding, but there are dozens of other TF characters that could provide that kind of situation.

And, quite frankly, enough humans running around they could be the ones causing the loosening of the hell breaks, depending on what the writers do.

Marky Mark and the Dino Bunch. Anyone???

I really hope the Dinobots get done. All Bay has to do is basically copy how Whedon used the Hulk in Avengers and apply that to the Dinos.

could be, IDK, im just theorizing here lol
Prime Wylde
Exactly HOW is this "unlike anything that has come before it, thanks in part to the character he has taken on" it's a sad cliche in a movie series already known for them.

I couldn't get the video, Are they saying there might be Dinobots?

When MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Wahlberg and Denzel Washington to talk about their new movie "2 Guns," the topic of Dinobots came up, and things got heated pretty quickly. "None of your business," Wahlberg said, responding to a question of whether he has encountered any Dinobots. "You don't want me to get replaced halfway through production for divulging secrets."

So perhaps there is something to the rumor, considering how tight-lipped Wahlberg got at first mention of the Dinobots. Prodding further, Horowitz asked what the Dinobots are. "You know what it is," he said. "Don't question my geek. I can out geek you."

Moving onto non-Dinobot related "Transformers" talk, Wahlberg confirmed that the new installment feels unlike anything that has come before it, thanks in part to the character he has taken on. "It feels like a completely different movie, very fresh," he said. "Obviously, it's a really interesting dynamic, being a young, single dad having a teenage daughter, trying to succeed as an inventor, having very little means and also trying to provide for my family. Then all hell breaks loose."

Crossing fingers then.

Well in that case, we'll probably be feeling those "good vibrations" like the kids in Jurassic Park...

After years of movie spoilers, non-disclosures, and gobs of secrecy around these sorts of movies, the people know telling what's not in a movie can be as telling to fan-boys as saying what is in it. His refusal to talk about details others bring up means pretty much nothing.

Personally, I'm hoping there won't be dinobots. That's one set of characters I'd really rather not get Bayified.

Other than Prime and Bee, I'm rather expecting a new line-up for the new trilogy.

Funny how so many people say, "no, please don't ef up the dinobots!" When the dinobots are already ef'd up. They are dinobots! They are lame! And this is coming from a huge Jurassic Park fan.
tonyformer
to all those that dont want the Dinobots, Face it, they are going to come sooner or later. Its only a matter of time that the Autobots only always being cars is going to get boring. Like Epps said in DOTM, "Why do the Decepticons always get the good shit!"

If Bay, Paramount and Hasbro really want to keep the money coming in, seats in theaters packed and toys selling, things need to be mixed up and a better mix of different TFs need to be added to keep this thing going.
Lazerwave
I don't see the problem. I like Michael Bay's Transformers movie. And if they change characters a bit like making them have wheels as feet or making them elders or giving them beaks, so be it I'll still like the movies and that the character is in the movie.

So he's the slap chop guy?

So much durm and strang over an omission of information seems akin to self-flagellation. I'm all for Dinobots in T4, whether or not Bay does them ultimate justice. At least I still have the G1 'toons if I need a proper hit. That being said I have a feeling if Bay does get to them they won't be what we expect. After all they have to make sense in a real world way, as seems to be the norm for most movies these days when trying to deal with fantastical concepts. Ultimately I just want to ensure they're still dinosaurs. If not what's the point?
mirage4lifeyo
We've already had transformers that look like birds, jaguars (the animal not the car), giant dogs, etc at this point. That makes no more sense than dinosaurs would.

That said, if you really wanted to give their dino modes a backtory that would make some semblance of sense, remember that in ROTF the "pretender" chick student at Sam's college who turned out to be a Decepticon pretty much established that in this movie universe, Transformers can cloak themselves with holograms and/or some sort of holomatter to resemble organics and neither the other ogranic beings nor the other Transformers will notice. Remember, the pretender chick sat inside Bumblebee with Sam for awhile and although he found her annoying, Bumblebee wasn't able to identify her as a Decepticon due to her disguise otherwise he would have transformed and started shooting at the pretender Decepticon.

So what we have here is a valid reason why a Transformer would assume the shape of any organic life form - they would then cloak themselves in a hologram/holomatter of the organic and use it as cover to sneak up on other enemy Transformers or other objectives. So using that logic, say for instance in ancient times when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth, you had a group of Transformers on Earth who assumed "Dinobot" modes, then cloaked themselves to look like real Dinosaurs and used that disguise to sneak up on some other enemy faction of Transformers who was on Earth doing bad things - some Primes making their first attempt to harvest the Sun, at a much earlier date than in ROTF perhaps? Who knows. But it would make it more plausible.

If he or they get in, you now have the instagram saying "dinobot" next to the older cabover truck and Nelson from Bay's website saying the identity of the new cabover truck would be "as controversial as when Optimus was given flames." Putting all that together certainly leads to a possibility, maybe likelihood depending how much you read in, that the cabover truck/trucks would be the Dinobots in this film.
Rodimus Mike
I really hope with all these rumors and news that the Dinobots really are gonna be in the movie.I also hope for god's sake if they are Hasbro doesn't pull crap like the did with the DotM figures and cancel the line before getting Grimlock and the Gang,that would totally suck monkey balls if they did.

Also I am a little worried about what Bay might do to them if they are in the movie like either not even make them dinosaurs but some weird cross species of bug and human type creature,or worse something like construction vehicles like Devastator in RotF. All I ask is that they have some resemblance to there G1 selves.
DangerousBacon
YES! Yet more Transformers Bay can shove into the background so he can focus on horrible comic relief and characters so flat you could use them as dinner plates!
Lazerwave
From what I read in the headline, I'm getting excited and thinking the possibilities. But I'm thinking it's too good to be true.

Edit: Think the only way the Dinobots could be in the film is if the film revolves around the Dinobots, But with the 4th movie being possibly the final movie it might revolving around something big not involving the Dinobots.
Lody666
I don't pay attention to any of the movie hype and have thoroughly enjoyed the movie franchise as it has guaranteed the a longer life expectancy of TF for many more years to come.

That sad, I would very much like to see the other four Dinos given the FOC treatment to go with Grimlock.

Kids love dinosaurs
Kids love TF

This would be a win

Even if it is not true, would Wahlberg have a problem saying no?

Bay also said:

1) He wouldn't direct Transformers 2
2) He wouldn't direct Transformers 3
3) He wouldn't direct Trransformers 4

He also hated some of those characters yet he still put them in.
