    Disagree.

    In fact, let's time travel back to the 50s and make a Transformers film series starring Optimus Prime played by John Wayne.

    Scourge as an unrepentant d-bag that is occasionally tortured by his d-bag boss is a much better angle than "bad guy who doesn't really want to be bad guy". Tired of seeing those tragic villains in everything.

    I don't care about his sad backstory or about how horrible his boss is to him. Scourge murders people and takes pieces of them as trophies. He corrupted someone and forced her comrade to kill her. If you don't enjoy being the bad guy, don't do bad guy things. I'm sure your boss didn't ask you to collect trophies of people you kill; all that guy cares about is eating planets. So I, for one, am glad they cut that out.

    I do wish they kept the first part of the Transit scene, Prime wearing Wheeljack's glasses, and the Maximal lines. Everything else? Into the trash where it belongs.

    This film was already filled with stuff we’ve already seen. But as far as I know none of these films have ever shown Optimus brought before Unicron. So there’s your new twist on something we’ve already seen.

    A Michael Bay ending would really just be what we saw in the movie, but credits roll at the scene where Noah hugs his family. Optimus meeting Unicron is actually unique all things considered.

    I think that's how the next one should end. This is basically the first chapter in a new trilogy, it needed a happy ending. The second chapter is always the darkest anyway.

    Oh I agree, I prefer the final ending too, especially with the music. I'm just arguing that the original ending isn't really a Michael Bay thing to do.

    Is this part 1 of a trilogy? I thought it was part 2.

    Rise of the Beasts has been stated to be start of a trilogy. This movie did start off as Bumblebee 2, but evolved into a Beast Wars movie, then a beginning of a potential trilogy over time.

    Source for where it was stated this was part of a trilogy? Because from the last time we discussed this, we pretty much came to a conclusion that we aren't sure. The whole trilogy thing comes from a Tweet by Paramount+ that said there are going to be 3 new Transformers installments, though, it seems like they could have been referring to ROTB, EarthSpark, and TF One.

    They said ROTB will be the first of three new installments, and Earthspark came before ROTB.

    The 3 new installments that are stated right there in the tweet: ROTB, EarthSpark, and TF One. They just screwed up calling ROTB "first'.

    Oh you make a good point about Paramount+. Though I could have sworn Caple Jr. mentioned other numbers in the series. It's very tentative by how he words it though. I don't think he nor producer have used the term trilogy recently, except for the animated movie in 2024.

    I think they just made a tiny edit but the revised quote: Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Steven Caple Jr. on G.I. Joe End – The Hollywood Reporter
    Original quote (very similar):

    Yeah, especially going by Caple's quote, there isn't a trilogy confirmed. TF8, TF9, etc could be anything (for example, a standalone Beast Wars movie) and not necessarily a direct continuation of ROTB.

    I think with Anthony Ramos saying he was signed on for 3 movies, almost confirms that a trilogy may be in the works.

    agreed it’ll be cool to see transit and prime wearing glasses and the maximals a bit more cause from the Arcee and wheeljack throw it away like what is the point of having that in the first place to turn people off against each other

    Eh, I guess I assumed it would start another trilogy. Probably a bit of wishful thinking on my part too.

    Signing 3 films is standard practice, means they will bind u to contract even if you have better offers later.
    Pretty sure Ryan Reynosa was signed on for 3 Green Lantern movies….

    I think Anthony will return, but we need Hailee or Cena to give him more appeal in some audiences

    Please bring back Hailee! I would love for her, Anthony, and Dominique to star together.
