News Post: The Future Of Transformers Live Action Movies Revealed
I don't know how some of this is going to work without some time-travel shenanigans in the next movie. Most of the Cybertronians are dead and the GI Joe movies, despite taking place in the (ambiguous) "near future," haven't acknowledged the existence of alien robots. It feels a little too late at this point...
Right! Since everything else gets a reboot... they should have rebooted and started over from scratch after the first 3 movies. I'm fine with a crossover but there's no real history, continuity, or characterization in the current movieverse so it's really just "meh".
An alternate history ay?
The new director will be someone named Bichael May
... Ooh, shi-
Sorry, can't resist sometimes.
"They are looking for new directors for the future films."
Prepare your exhaust ports, fellow Cybertronians.
Well lets keep in mind that if TF6 begins filming around summer like the other movies, then yeah Bay cant direct, because he will be busy doing Post-production for TF5 and he will be busy doing press tour and interviews, thus he will not have the time to shoot TF6.
As long as the movies keep building the capitol that gives me the figures I want, that's fine.
The movies I make with them in my head are much better. Lol
But man.... Imagine getting a cool cohesive transformers live action movie for once....
Maybe they're going to pull a Flash/ Days of Future Past and alter movie history with time travel shenanigans
About time to kick Bay to ass.
The only way they can pull this off now and save the franchise that's been set in place till this point is to do some kind of time travel/alternate reality crap that corrects issues from past movies and brings characters back that should never have been killed like Ironhide, Ratchet, Screamer, Shockwave and Soundwave.
No one cares, are they bringing back our fan-favorites or what!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
You answered your own question already and everyone needs to open their eyes and see that bringing back forgotten and dead characters has already started lol. Lennox, Epps, Simmons, Wheelie, Barricade, Megatron and a few others
This might end up being a colossal Astrotrain wreck
But at least we're all gonna watch it together :')
Out of the frying pan...
These movies have eaten up 10 years of Bay's work life, might be time for him to move on anyway. Though we have already known he wasn't going to direct the Bumblebee spinoff. That doesn't mean he may not return for TF6, but who knows. He's done 5 large as heck movies in the series, maybe it is time to hand the reins to someone else to handle the next 5.
The main issue in a joined GI Joe universe outright is TF3-5 where the government connections are more direct. Though the emphasis for the first GI Joe is how covert it is as a group. GI Joe 2 they are more world known, with many events never told on screen as it focused on the core team that Cobra framed. That has to be within 4 years of each other though because of Zartan.
So they can force a connection, but it's going to need some tweaking since Zartan wasn't the president in TF3-5, and Cobra hadn't taken over yet. Though we could factor in compartmentalization too. But that still means the GI Joe movies would have to take place prior to TF3-5.
Does give a better reason why a Metal eating Nanite weapon would need development though, and also does give more reason behind Delta 6 suits. Seems like the sub pieces they needed were there, but weren't intermingled right.
Not so sure on this whole "Magic technology" aspect of the proposed M.A.S.K. movie though. Would make much more sense to do that as a sub-team of GI Joe that uses hybridized Cybertronian/human tech.
Well seeing the remarks about transformers throughout earths history and WWII, makes me 100% believe we are getting time travel and or an alternate time flip flop and will see a lot of these old military vehicles turn out to be TFs.
Please. Dark of the Moon was "Bay's last Transformers movie", he decided to leave the franchise after Age of Extinction too and here he is again. We have this same story every freaking movie and he always comes back.
I'm honestly suprised that people actually liked the 2 blandest stock soldier characters in history and one of the franchises' worst joke character. Wheelie was also pretty accepted as awful.
Not to get too "political" or anything, but I'm sorry something in the article linked from WSJ interview really pissed me off.
Here's the quote: "Chabon also said their concepts promote diversity and that "if we came out of that room with one white male protagonist, I can’t think of who it is."
I'm all for representing as many people in movies, as possible. Yet when has the term diversity become synonymous with anti-white male? Diversity is something that's supposed to encapsulate EVERYONE. Am I missing something? Is there something wrong with being a white male, because the guy from the writers room is talking about it like its a plague.
