    I would love to see Christopher Nolan direct the bumble bee spin off or direct Transformers 7 it might be interesting.

    No, Transformers need a more conventional storytelling action movie director!

    I want Bee to be a good old fashioned big thrills chase movie! Rambo in space!

    Nolan focuses almost entirely on human stories as much as possible. He'd probably make the TFs even more peripheral in his story.

    James Gunn would be perfect, and not just because GOTG was good and is a trendy movie, but because he's a director that can bring real heart to weird fucking senarios and characters.

    OMG this happens EVERY FRICKEN TIME A MOVIE COMES OUT! Someone ALWAYS suggest having the director or some element of a new movie be brought into the Transformers Franchise. Like why can't Transformers do ITS OWN thing instead of stealing from other franchises.

    The whole reason this thread exists is because Nolan just released his trailer for his new movie Dunkirk

    Threads like this that have been popping up every other day or so since the movies came out in 2007. While I admit I enjoyed (small) parts of the first and third movies, even the most strident of Bay's defenders likely fell asleep during Age of Extinction. I would take pretty much any other director over Michael Bay at this point, and I am guessing (and hoping) a majority of the fanbase feels the same way. That said, Michael Bay's movies make a shitload of money (especially overseas) and that money keeps Hasbro running (though they don't seem to spending any of that money on paint-apps or quality plastic). Bay is a commercial director who rakes in the money and Hasbro's higher ups have no reason to care about the quality of the films so long as they're making them money. We're stuck with Bay until he gets bored with having money thrown at him or his movies stop making money (which is probably never).

    Maybe David Yates, the Harry Potter director, could work out due to his world-building skills (Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts).

    For the SEQUELS/MAIN TIMELINE films - probably someone like a J.J. Abrams, Duncan Jones, Jon Favreau and David Yates type.

    For the SPINOFFS - I always think Dave Green who directed this year's TMNT: Out Of the Shadows for Bee 2018. Others would be like Michelle McLaren, Tim Miller, those kind of people.

    Can anyone imagine if Justin Lin directed a Transformers film?

    Not really, Bay has tried to leave twice now and this will make the third and it's not because of the money, otherwise he wouldn't even consider it. I believe he truly cares for the franchise and while he wants to let someone new takeover, he's keep coming back because he feels it's his duty to make these films. Add onto the fact he got encouragement from multiple people to continue on and for the most of the cast do enjoy working with him. He's stuck between these two choices and I can't blame him. How hard would it be to walk away from something you put so much work in that you enjoy and let someone new takeover? Pretty tough. Also there's the problem that no one seems to want to direct the Transformers films, pretty much like how Bay was originally back in 2007. They'll need serious convincing to take on the project.

    Christopher Nolan, and frequent collaborator David Goyer, should stay as far away as is humanly possible from Transformers. Nolan would be an ill-fit for the franchise philosophically and Goyer is probably one of the worst writers currently going without the excuse of being a first timer on fanfiction.net.


    I won't lie after Guardians and the one-two punch of Winter Soldier and Civil war I'd be keen to see James Gunn or the Russo Brothers take a stab at the franchise, but just based on what I saw in trailers, George Miller would be a solid choice. All pie in the sky but it's a fun speculation none the less.

    The films could do worse. I mean they could do better, but I reckon they could do a lot worse if his work on Fast and the Furious is anything to go by.

    Joss Whedon is also a great candidate.
