Bay should have snagged Robert Downey Jr before Marvel did

    I don't recall Tony Stark ever hating anyone.

    The MCU version has a dislike towards soldiers, yes, and Ultron definitely put him off relying on AIs, but that's as far as it goes.

    Switch out Sector 7 for GIJoe and I think you end up with a wash in terms of human focus. Also, more care would be given that organization in their cinematic handling.

    Sorry, but RDJ played one of my fact characters in fiction. Ever. So, I don’t think I’m gonna miss any sleep with him not being in Bayverse.

    However, I wouldn’t mind him being a VA for a Transformer in the future. Hell, he could be “The Mechanic”.

    Ironically, I think Sector 7 and Seymour Simmons were much more fun than the generic military guys and N.E.S.T. Simmons was obsessed with Transformers. He was basically an over-the-top, in-universe Transformers fan in an official government role. The military kind of hogged the action spotlight from the Autobots a lot in many of the films, but I felt Simmons actually added more to the Transformers story. I was glad once N.E.S.T. was disbanded in the films.

    Dislike of soldiers? He goes out of his way to try and be friendly with them in the first Iron Man.

    No. I'm glad it didn't happen.

    RDJ got redeemed and becomes Marvel fan favorite because he starred in Marvel, in the edge of bankruptcy. Both saving each other.

    RDJ is a good actor that his talents would be wasted in Bay's TF movies.

    You would rob the world of its superlative cinematic Iron Man? You’re a monster and a mad man.

    If Robert Downey Jr. agreed to Transformers and never joined Marvel...
    No, just no. Marvel helped him from rock bottom, and Bay would of pummeled him into the ground.

    It wasn't only the actor who made it, but the combination of a passion project and a director with a good story and heart as well, the Benjamin's came later

    Yeah, Sector 7 and Simmons in the first movie were more interesting to work off the Transformers. I wouldn't mind them being brought into other Transformers fiction. NEST was just a generic movie military organization.
