News Post: Travis Knight Expresses His Interest For Another Transformers Movie
Before this thread devolves into another war, I have to say I sort of hope he comes back. While I do hope he acknowledges more than just G1 (as I’ve said before, this franchise is rich with history that’s still waiting to be brought into modern day), I’m also interested to see what he does next should he get to direct another movie.
I'm ready for war!
I'm all for more Knightvision. I think he did a fantastic job of bringing the G1 aesthetics into the modern era.
I would love to see a continuation of where the Bumblebee movie left off. Maybe even spend more time on Cybertron.
I think Knight breathed new and invigorating life into the Transformers movie verse.
I really hope we do see more from Knight, it's so refreshing to have a movie from someone who genuinely cares about the franchise. I'm not sure who else I would trust to put that much care and love into another movie.
If he wants to come back, I will gladly welcome him into the chair, and wait for his movie to release.
Can he just do a fresh start for the Transformers movies, because people still question if BB was a reboot or not, so just fresh with no connection to any past Transformers movies, that counts BB as well.
Oh well. People will be happy.
If only he\'d do a sequel to TLK while he\'s at it.
I would like to see him come back, but the film should be self contained.
I think it would be a good idea if the next big Transformers movie works on its own without having to watch Bumblebee first. But I wouldn't want anything in it to contradict Bumblebee.
There may yet be hope afterall!
If they pick up close to where Bumblebee left off, they can make it blatantly obvious that the new movies are a different continuity from bayverse.
I personally think there was more than enough proof that Bumblebee was the start of this new continuity, with a few nods to send off bayverse.
I really hope he comes back and does the possible optimus prime film. He knows the character as well as any fan and he can easily make it self contained with the ending or begining connecting it to bee. Plus imagine him and Peter, the two people with the most respect towards the character possibly in Hollywood working on the film together. It would be perfect.
It seems like there is a lot Knight would still like to tell. I'd love to see his take on other Bots in terms of characterization besides for Bee. Oh, and that Travisverse Prime needs more screen time.
All they need to do is show Megatron is not frozen in the ice (or at the Hoover Dam) and boom, the new universe won't ever be mistaken for the Bayverse again.
I think we could get more Cybertron from OP's flashbacking to how the war started and how he made it to Earth.
Absolutely no need for it to devolve into another war. It’s all a matter of choice!
Also hopeful that he comes back.
Or at all. Like Galvatron landing, sticking his bazooka up Bee's ass, pulling the trigger, and then let it be know that Bayverse is goneverse. This isn't the movie TFs you grew up with. That's the only way it could ever be a true reboot.
If they can kill off Cliffjumper, they can kill off Bumblebee. Bring on some new bots and stories.
I don't know. Sure it was better than the last few run, and could make for a nice stepping stone. I know that origin movies can be a bit slow, but the bar wasn't left that high by Bay, and many of the positive reviews reflected such. But at the end of the day, it was a pretty generic movie for me. My nephew and niece dug it, but it was their first Transformers movie experience, and having shown TF1 to my nephew finally this weekend, there wasn't much difference in the excitement for either. If we hold the standard at Bay (and I somewhat enjoyed the trilogy), we have probably set the bar too low with a director.
For once I’m glad to hear some movie press. This is all well and good. Like many others I would gladly have more from him, but also like others I respect his decisions to not do it and pursue his other creative passions.
