    I still think Bumblebee should remain that starting launchpad, plus we'll see how Snake Eyes turns out.

    Or HCU for that matter.

    I'm kinda mixed on that.

    I think the "problem", if there is one, is... Would Hasbro even want that? Would they want a mastermind storyteller producer? As long as Transformers is still seen by Hasbro and many people (in and out of the industry) as nothing more than a toy commercial (despite having almost 40 years of lore and a ton of storytelling and mythology attached to it), then why bother getting visionary storytellers? If Hasbro doesn't care about telling stories, then, if there are any visionary storytellers out there that love the Transformers stories and characters (and I'm sure there are, somewhere), why would they bother making commercials for Hasbro, instead of telling stories? Most directors graduate from commercials to movies. Why go back, essentially? I think all that Hasbro wants is salesmen, pretty much. Hence where Lorenzo comes in ...And stays.

    Someone who understands and loves the franchise. You can tell the Marvel movies are made by people who legitimately love these characters, and aren't doing it for a quick paycheck.

    We need a Kevin Smith equivalent for Transformers. A fan who knows his stuff back and front and cares about the franchise's integrity and success as well. I'd recommend Chris McFeely is he was up for that sort of thing.

    Maybe Kevin Feige is that one guy who has managed to hit the right notes and help establish a massive media empire with marvel. I’m not saying it can’t be done, you just need someone who gives a shit and is willing to do the hard work. Sadly I don’t see it with anyone at paramount except Travis Knight, but he isn’t involved with ROTB.

    I'm sorry, but that's the worst possible explanation of Kevin Smith.

    Rik Alavarez is actually a great choice. I love his TFCon appearances.

    McFeely is needed as a consultant for sure, but I agree we need someone who’s talented in numerous aspects of filmmaking like Feige, not just the lore.

    I think some of you need to look into producers that understand the craft of film making, and not just being an info dump on tf lore, tf movies needs to be a movie first and all that lore n shit second.

    This is a trap, right? Anyone who is assigned this role instantly has a target on their back.

    I prefer the guy who did the Bumblebee movie or someone with a strong track record of making modern action-adventure movies that target the kid demographic. Get someone from Pixar who knows how to tell an action-adventure story.

    The problem I have with TF fiction/mythology is that (a) its a mess and (b) a constant retread of the same themes/characters. I don't want someone who is hung up on the mythos and characters. I want someone who actually DGAF about the past.

    This movie isn't for us though. It's for the 6-10 year-olds that will get sucked into the franchise and stick around for another 40+ years.
