    God what a pompous asshole. Does Lorenzo even understand how often he contradicts himself these days? Of course not.

    Keep in mind, everyone, that the whole 'Writer's Room' idea for the TFCU? That was Lorenzo's idea.

    And just like that, Lorenzo confirms he's going to do everything in his power to make sure a hypothetical TF6 does not involve Unicron.

    Because that worked out so well for Mass Effect 3, right?

    lol as if! The next TF film isn't scheduled until 2021, so if we get anything by SDCC 2020 that'd be a surprise.

    :)  Hilarious. It’s really amazing. We can maybe give him the benefit of the doubt a bit due to the translation but I do think that this highlights one of the lingering issues with the franchise - assuming that he’s not as stupid as he sounds, he definitely thinks that audiences are stupid.

    As someone who has given Lorenzo the benefit of the doubt in the past and has always wondered why just the mention of his name would practically trigger people, I have to say I’m surprised that Paramount and/or Hasbro haven’t told this man to stop doing interviews. He’s constantly contradicting himself and Hasbro.

    Well, that last question confirms it: They have no idea what they are doing after Bumblebee's success.

    Someone from the San Diego Zoo needs to teach the Paramount execs how to use a tranquilizer gun.

    I think attempting to harmonize the platforms of the Republican and Democratic parties would be easier than making coherent sense of this guy's last several interviews!

    Nononono.
    The sixth movie was a sequel to TLK in the Bumblebee movie.
    The sixth movie was a reboot. That's why it took place in a different cinematic universe.
    But the Bumblebee movie is a new take. It's a prequel to the 2007 movie if there is going to be a BW movie.

    I'm still curious about this particular TV Spot and the one which came after; both saying the same thing. These were the last two TV spots prior to the movie. If they were setting up a Cinematic Universe, why announce that TLK is the last movie?

    Wait a second, old Peter Griffin here is still spouting out gibberish?? Just shut up already! And at least quit giving your franchise weird, ambiguous buzz until you have something to actually report.

    It is also implied that the series will now take a similar approach to Warner Bros.’ DC Series; where the attention is given to each individual film while not focusing on a broader “Cinematic Universe”.

    This is the type of shit that makes the general audiences stop caring about this franchise. The MCU works as well as it does because it always sets up for the future either through foreshadowing or teases in the after credits scenes. This leaves the audience excited for what comes next, how is this gonna tie together, etc. When you keep throwing curve balls to the audience every time, they can't keep up and just lose interest.

    Just look at any of the Avengers films. Avengers 1 essentially had five prequels that culminated to one big one that ended off that phase of the movies. Every film thereafter had audiences excited to know what they were planning with Thanos and the Infinity Stones, which then lead to Infinity War generating over 2 billion.

    I'm not saying I think the Transformers films can follow the same suit and style as Marvel. It's just pretty apparent, and unfortunate, that there is no interest in actually planning an overall story arc.

    It's like Simmons said in Rotf.
    -Let's not get episodic, okay, old timer? Beginning. Middle. End. Facts. Details. Condense. Plot. Tell it.
