    Everything I hear about this movie makes me legitimately curious as to what the plot will be.

    I would bet its part of a montage scene, with an "item" of alien origin being passed around through time from one group or person to another. Plus the Nazis were obsessed with relics and the origins of mankind. Occult relics/items too.

    Don't most people consider him a hero in everything, like real life?

    People really need to calm down and not freak out over wording like that.

    Also, yeah, I don't think this is as big a controversy as some people want to make it out to be. Just tabloid fearmongering as usual. I can definitely see why people would dislike Bay doing that, though.

    A bit distasteful but... meh. I think they should have used a different property but if the caretakers of Blenheim Palace and the British government don't have a problem with it, why should I.

    As for the movie itself, I couldn't give two shits. Bay has been screwing up the Transformers IP for the last decade. The first one was decent but the rest have been a down hill train wreck ever since. AoE was one of the worst movies ever made. This one is shaping up no different.

    Well, apparently, it happened with Pearl Harbour too. So, not only is Bay divisive in filmmaking terms, but also in adapting real life history! :lol :bay

    Oh geez. I'm sorry about this UK. Please don't judge all Americans on the actions of Hollywood.
    I'm hoping this is just some plot point like an alternate history when the Nazis win or something and not Bay being his usual idiot self.
    I don't even know WTF Nazis are doing in a Transformers movie in the first place.

    Michael Bay You Absolute Mad Man.

    I can't believe this man.

    also the Nazi's are in it, this movie is already insane. I definitely have to watch this movie now just for the sheer novelty of it.

    You might be on to something there.

    I\'m willing to wait until we have context before I start judging Michale Bay as an unrespectable idiot. However, unless this involves Nazis taking over and using Winston Churchill\'s house as a base of operations, followed by Churchill coming back to take his house back by force with a bunch of WWII-era Autobots, then I can\'t imagine the context of this being very satisfying.

    He's tying TF into history more. I don't see the issue here? Churchill and Nazis were part of UKs history as well as world history. So again, what's the big issue? I understand what the Nazis did as my grandparents fled Poland to get away from Nazi Germany but it's our history and for those to say Bay is being disrespectful because he's using Nazi history in his movie, so fucking what! Lol. Marvel practically built Hydra out of Nazi history and to this day, that Hydra/Nazi Influence still pops up in some Marvel movies. No one screams about Nazi history being tied into Marvel history.

    And I get why some are upset because of the location being used as a Nasi compound but its was cleared by the UK government so get over it lol

    If the rest of the world was going to judge America based on Hollywood, they would've reached their conclusion long before Bay rolled around.

    Marvel is God to people so what They do is unchallengeable.

    Edit:
    Oops forgot to uppercase the "T" in "they". Let me correct that so I don't disrespect any Marvel Nazis reading this...oh wait am I disrespecting people by saying Marvel Nazi too?

    This movie is going to be so interesting.... Jumping around from the US to the UK etc and going back in time. I really hope it\'s the longest one out of the 4 we\'ve had so far.
