    Agreed. The stink of the Snake Eyes movie is still fresh in Joe fans minds, not to mention online stores can't practically give away the figures that were put in the Classified toyline from that movie.

    Until Lorenzo is credited as the writer or director then that is irrelevant to my point. We can hate him for other reasons.

    Wanting the next Transformers movie to be good is like eating poop straight from a butt, declaring it tastes like poop but maybe the next one from the same butt won’t.

    Some time you just got to start believing the source is only capable of producing poop.

    But there were Renegades and the full-length Resolute. There was content, it was just a long time ago.

    Even if the movie is great... Will it really do well? After the previous ones, does anyone want to watch GI-Joe? We as transformers fans will go regardless, but I'm talking about the general audience here.

    TF fans. G.I.Joe fans are just always angry.

    Give them a good movie about a daring, highly-trained special mission force fighting a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world and they'd be less angry.

    Critical reaction means jack nowadays. It's the audience that counts nowadays.

    I think they needed a gi joe standalone first, to introduce everything. As it stands, this new movie will have to introduce gi joe characters, their world, what they are doing. Then it needs to do the same for cobra. Then it needs to give a joe story. Then it needs to work transformers into it and explain why they are getting mixed together. And tell a story with characters. This is either going to have very few characters from each side, or it'll have a bunch of joes thrown in with little to no character.


    Alternatively, NEST is fighting decepticons from its conception. It was created in the tf verse, for the tf verse and it only had three main humans for the character writing to focus on. Id rather have NEST return in some way. By jumping straight to the crossover, i feel this is not gonna do the joe fans any justice. But that's just my opinion. I might be wrong.

    These films were supposed to be better than the Bayverse "garbage" that preceded it, said the many who were desperate for Bumblebee to be a reboot. Anything is better than Bay, right? That's what those who disliked these movies kept implying. So why have the last two movies in this reboot been so lacklustre? I don't want a G.I Joe crossover movie, I want a movie that's as exciting as 3/5 Bay movies were.

    TF1 was awesome for a first movie; DotM had great scale and action with a decent story and interesting stakes; and AoE (at least to me) was a strong follow-up. I've yet to be wowed since. Bumblebee was essentially a remake of TF1 and RotB was a less interesting RoTF with wasted Maximals and a final battle that was mostly - if not entirely CG. People complained about TLK, but was RotB really any better? Why does G.I Joe need to be introduced now? Why? I've never been so disappointed in a film announcement. People are free to love this movie, like what you like because ultimately it's just a movie, but I'm done. At this point all I want is a follow-up to TLK considering all that happened in its 3rd act.

    Lorenzo is on the books saying they don't give a flying flip about continuity so whatever GIJoe movie would be setting this one up wouldn't have any relavancy anyhow.

    ROTB had to deal with a crowded june. As long as Paramount doesn't shove it in a crowded month again it could do better than ROTB and maybe BB at the box office.

    Bayverse is the only reason transformers is as big as it is today. It ain't garbage.

    I totally get that, but it has to be exhausting to automatically discount something before you even know anything about it other than the movie is being put in production. Maybe put your time into something else? And I'm not saying you exactly, just the people who have already made up their mind that this is going to be horrible.

    Yeah, but as long as Paramount put this in a very low crowded month (like what WB and Legendary did with GxK) it could make some decent money.

    If we don’t get at least someone like Warpath, Wreckage, Hound, Kup, Snowcat, Breakaway, the Combaticons, or other militaristic TFs for this film then what are we even doing

    Look if they can make it work, I'm all for it. But as of right now I'm just dreading the thought of them essentially going back to TLK.
