    I really like Lorenzo. He seems kinda like an honest guy for a casual - I'm saying this as a good thing - Hollywood producer. Lax, casual, blunt.

    I don't believe half of the shit he says during this stage. Remember when he said we were going to see Dinobot origins in the beginning of AOE?

    A lot of this was revealed the day the embargo was lifted, including most of the stuff about Grimlock, Optimus, Megatron, the Librarian, and the Quintessons.

    But we kinda do...the seeds transforming the dinosaurs.
    Plus, things could have changed during production after he said that.

    Two pieces of the mythology, huh? I bet it's Unicron and Quintessons, even more that he says they converge at the end!

    I think by two pieces of the mythology he was not necessarily talking about Unicron and Quintessons but rather that of the origins of the Transformers, Prime, and Megatron on one hand in the far distant past, and the whole Arthurian aspect and its connection to Cybertronians centuries ago on Earth.

    That's not to say the Quintessons and Unicron won't play roles (Lorenzo confirmed the Quintessons being involved with the origins of the Transformers, although I am not convinced of the presence of the latter), but I don't think they alone were what he was referring to.

    The seeds are not transforming earth Dinosaurs into Dinobots lol. The Seeds are turning all Organic life they touch into the METAL used to make Transformers. The only origins we get out of AOE is that Transformers in general were made from that metal. If you watch that scene again, it's not just the Dinosaurs that get turned into the metal. The grass and orther organic greenery is also transformed. The Seeds turn ALL ORGANIC life into the metal.

    Those Dinosaurs they showed her turned into metal were solid metal and not robotic.

    The 2 main things I get from that interview is they are back tracking to undo some things and re-write some TFs mythology and that he has no idea how to do an interview lol. He's all over ge place and makes little sense in a lot of that interview lol

    Why is this asshat still allowed any involvement with these movies?

    This guy and Bay are brainless Hacks that need to be shown the door. This dude talks out of his ass 24/7.

    Which weren't the Dinobots, or had any relation to them at all.

    I'm so sick of these Michael Bay Transformers movies. I'd like to see Ridley Scott do a version with G1 Shockwave in it.

    Ugggh, the Bumblebee movie sounds like the worst sort of schlock. This franchise is just getting trashier with each new release, the best thing I can say about the last movie is that all of the noise and cgi overloaded my brain into falling asleep.

    Yeah... I'm getting pretty tired at people referencing Transformers as the source of why we should hate Bay since they're so popular. I get the terrible feeling that 13 Hours is gonna slip by a lot of people's minds since we're all so focused on pop culture stuff and that Bay's strength isn't really in pop culture. Bay has proven his worth with most of his films but I do admit he feels I guess fatigued with the Transformers franchise.

    It's going to be more of the same. They should have rebooted with or without Bay after Dark of The Moon.
