    Back then, I would've loved the idea, but nowadays... ...Eh.

    I rather have Favreau do his own films rather than a TF movie.

    He is a movie director, so yes, he could direct a movie.

    Yes, he can.


    But he is reported to be a big fan of Iron Man and Disney, so as a fanboy director he understands those properties and was able to adapt them understanding what made them special.


    Which brings up the following points:
    - Have any of Favreau's non-fanboy films been big hits? He did Made, Elf, Zathura, Cowboys and Aliens and Chef. Average to bad.

    - Has Favreau said he is a Transformers fan? Has any director said this? It may help for a director to be a fan of the material they are adapting, but I have the sad feeling most directors have grown beyond Transformers and want more mature content to work with :( .

    Spielberg and Bay leap to mind.

    And I wouldn't exactly call Chef a "non-fanboy" film...Favreau is obviously a BIG fan of food and he made an EXCELLENT movie about it, lol.

    As the guy who kickstarted the MCU with what is still one of the best movies in the MCU, sure why not. I know people criticize Iron Man 2 (which i really don't get?!) and 3, but they're still better more coherent movies than the Bay TF movies.

    It would be nice. I don't know if we could say Bay is TF fan, not at first anyway, although I'm sure he has grown to like them, the pay day they bring if nothing else! :lol

    Elf was a huge hit and is a beloved Christmas movie.

    He would be great in directing a Transformers movie because he tends to stay loyal to the source material and include a coherent plot in his movies but right now he seems too preoccupied with Disney/Marvel films.

    I don't care if they themselves are a fan of the franchise as a whole, I just want someone who wants to direct a good movie.
