    Okay so, this guy wants a sequel to the Last Knight? Despite the fact it was the lowest grossing film in the TF movies, and the fact we moved on from seeing this type of crap we gotten for 10 years, and just wanna see something new like with Bumblebee and despite it's a reboot. I think even the CEO Confirmed it when he said Bee was solidly profitable, and reset the franchise. so what's his deal?

    Some people move on from Bayverse. But not him. Not him.

    True, But doesn't he realize that Bee is a reboot, and Hasbro has creative control. Not this guy?

    id wait see if truly comes to fruition, i think it might exists because they need more time to develop the new universe and are using it to maintain the license. i'm concerned paramount will be deceptive with its marketing so if it does happen we need to spread word across other platforms so the people that like bayverse can see it and people that don't like bayverse don't see it. with bayverse's reputation paramount will have to trick people into watching it to make it profitable

    "Reboot" means just a different packaging to them. Until this producer team gets booted, we're probably getting variations of the same thing, just presented differently and marketed as "reboots". Even the proposed BB and Optimus "buddy" movie, sounds to me like buying time with a random spinoff, essentially delaying the work needed to build the proper foundation for a solid reboot. Just random spinoffs, dressed in superficial G1 fan service, like I've been saying.

    He's banking on the fact they had to keep some movie ties into Bumblebee, like young Simmons and Sector 7 existing, to try and perhaps force the idea that it isn't a reboot, even though the film clearly can not exist in the same context for a laundry list of reasons that far outstrip trivial connections most people would overlook or miss.

    There is absolutely no way you people don't realize who embarrasing it is to keep writing corporate fanfiction about a man.

    He’s stuck in the past, I think. Too busy relieving the good old days when Bayformers made billions per film to realise that it’s turned into a punchline joke of cinematic failure partially due to him and Bay’s bad decisions.

    A lowlife manchild with little to offer for a corprate that OWNS the brand itself and has more financial power over him. It's only a matter of time before hasbro shuts him up.

    All Lorenzo is doing is relaying information to us. We don't even know that he had any say in this. For all we know, Travis Knight could have been the one insisting to keep it in the same universe. We really have no idea. We know maybe 1% of what has been going on behind the scenes at Hasbro and Paramount. I guarantee he isn't the only one to blame here.

    Again, Lorenzo does have faults. There's a lot of stuff worth criticizing him for. I'm not denying that. I'm just saying this probably isn't one of them. I've seen a lot of people say "he can't move on from the Bayverse" over the past couple days. Maybe the problem is that fans prematurely moved on from the Bayverse. Maybe we were too quick to jump at Hasbro's vague statements, and we created false expectations.

    There DOES seem to be a quality of desperation in his recent string of comments, come to think of it...

    THIS! Lorenzo isn't this perfect spokesman for the production of the Transformers movies, nor is he this witch who should be hunted down by an angry mob of fans and burned at the stake. Every year or two or three some new scapegoat comes along from the point of view of a small number of vocal, angry fans, and more fans follow the path of least resistance and just jump on the bandwagon, and pretty soon this mob mentality just permeates certain sections of this site. Lorenzo just happens to be the biggest scapegoat in recent times.

    If someone enjoyed the Bay movies, then obviously Lorenzo didn't negatively affect that enjoyment. LIKEWISE, if someone enjoyed Bumblebee, then obviously Lorenzo's involvement didn't affect their enjoyment of that. And if there hasn't been a live action film you've enjoyed yet? That's fine, and hopefully some day you get a film you enjoy. And if not, just live your life. But regardless of your opinion about any of the films or rebooting vs. not rebooting, the vitriol from some fans needs to stop.

    Another example of someone who was involved in the three most financially successful of the films, and fans blamed him for "ruining" the movies, and once he left, the first film written by the Writers' Room did much worse, and was received worse by fans. Funny how that works out.

    Funny enough, I actually...gasp...liked his work on the movies. It wasn't perfect, but they were intriguing and enjoyable Transformers stories I thought.

    Lorenzo really needs to let go of the past and get his head out of his ass.
