    I like the Bay films, honestly Transformers some what moved out of my life until the 07 film, and each one after that has refired up my love.
    That said I'd like to see him do ONE more and then move on.
    Perhaps even reboot the series.
    This world is easily as deep as Star Wars, there's no reason why they can't do a TON.

    I think Marvel has proven you don't need to focus on Earth either. Guardians did a good job away from that location.

    Jesus Christ no. 5 movies in and it's the same director, we need new, we need fresh.

    If it's for TF6 (2018), then I'd vote Hell No, because it would mean going back on the promise of a new fresh director (Knight.)

    If OP means TF7 (2019), which I think he does, then I vote No. There's nowhere to go from "Hell No!" I'd vote Uwe Bowel as a Hell No! That puts Bay and Bowel on even odds for TF7.. that can't be right!? :lol

    HELL NO! A new director is long overdue, to the point that it will take a lot to get me to even bother watching the next main TF film, even if it does have a new director.

    Oh god, no. Can we get someone with the slightest amount of originality?

    I’ve always been curious if Bay ever even looked into rest of the franchise. Like G1, the comics, etc…Or if the writers would just throw out characters names/personalities/ and old plot points and he went ‘yeah that sound cool’

    I don’t think the next director has to have complete Transformers knowledge, but I think they should have an understanding of where these characters came from and why exactly we like and enjoy them so much.

    While people might cringe at JJ and I am not a fan, the key is now public perception. It would be a huge positive spin for Paramounr to get the director of sw7 as opposed to Bay again
    Bay has do something else like 13 hours that makes him viewed more positively. Actually if he did bad boys 3 people would like him again automatically. Then he can come back to tf for a spin off...

    I voted no. Bay doesn't necessarily have to go (he can stay on as advisor/some other ranking), but I think his direction should take a backseat and allow somebody else the chance to shine. I feel like some of the cooler characters could not have happened without Bay, but I think the personality and tone could change drastically for the better with his lesser involvement

    Why would anyone want him back?.. I want an actual transformers movie, not a human movie with robot set dressing.

    That's not the case at all. It was still mostly humans with robots here and there.

    That's pretty much how I feel.

    I honestly don't have strong feelings towards Bay coming back or not(I'd still vote no), but from a PR standpoint this franchise won't be able to survive another Bay directed installment.

    Pretty much this.

    Has he made that elephant documentary he wanted to do yet? I haven't heard anything about it ever since he first talked about it.

    I'd definitely love to see what other kind of content Michael could come up with on his own... that isn't related to Transformers. He's a great director, IMO, I just think it's time for him to step down from Transformers. I've heard many good things about many movies he did before he started with the TF franchise, and I loved three out of the five TF movies he's done, so I hope he can move on to something more suited to him.

    The fact the movies have succeeded this long and it took the fifth movie for the camel's back to break financially suggests that audiences aren't tired of Transformers, they're tired of Bay's Transformers. I wish he could've left at least after AOE. It's time for this Jedi's time to end.

    Is it though?.. the driving in the car, the cade fight, the glass box, driving in the truck, cade fighting lockdown.. I definitely didn't see it as 80% robots vs robots.

    Guys let be clear about this....

    For 10 years, the movies have stuck to him as the auteur. Now we see that disinterest in his direction that you be like, "Paramount, it's time to move on..."

    He's not that bad of a director by the way. It's just that the series has been lacking fresh direction. We see franchises like F&F, Mission Impossible etc move on because different people have come on board to breath some form of new life. So it's clear Transformers cannot stick to the same style over and over.

    At first I thought it was a problem with Ehren Kruger since the series went downhill when he joined for ROTF. And tbh, I enjoyed AOE more than others. So much so that I actually wanted Bay to come back for TF5 as long as Kruger wasn't. So when I heard that he wasn't returning, I got excited. Then when I heard the writer for Iron Man 1 was attached, I got even more excited. But of course, after TLK's release, I realize more than ever that the problem lies with Michael Bay. So no, I don't want him to return.
