Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

^Pretty much. What's your point though? They were talking scale wise and how to incorporate him into the movie universe. I'll try and see if I can find the interview.

Reboot it, keep Peter Cullen and Hugo Weaving only. Give Weaving more lines.

Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

Weaving was horrible as Megatron though. Plus he's said that he's never seen the films I think he probably only did them as pay days and besides Megatron was never the bad ass he should have been in these films aside from a few moments in the first and was secondary to other villains in the second and third movie. Frank Welker should have been Megatron with an increased role. Even Bay admitted that Welker should have been Megs.

Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

Only 2 ways I'd see these:

1) No Michael Fucking Bay.
2) Unicron.

The choice by Shia Lebouf not to participate is a solid decision on his part and saves us from his "acting". Besides, he's probably run out of ways to scream "Optimus".

This franchise needs new blood attached to it, Michael Bay really fucked these movies up in the worst possible way. These were not good movies by any stretch of the imagination. Period. They were just cool action with non sensical plot, horrible acting and pitiful attempts at humor. As someone who grew up with Transformers when they came out, it was nothing short of embarrassing.

Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

I wonder if Speilberg would do it...but he's never directed a sequel that wasn't to a film franchise he started, or in the stuff adapted from books, done the first one. Tyrese Gibson suggested Spielberg as a choice, but we'll see.


I could also see Joe Johnston (Captain America) or Stephen Summers (GI Joe-another Hasbro property-and the Mummy films).

One thing I'd like to see them get rid of is the 'macguffin'. TF1 had the Allspark, TF2 the Matrix and TF3 the moon stuff. I'd stop trying to make these films too much like Indiana Jones or National Treasure that way....it kind of made the backstories way too convulted and contradictory. (Although IDW has been trying to sort that out in their movie-based comics with some limited sucess).


Also the same could be said of the 'ancient transformers'-Sentinel Prime was too similar in MO to The Fallen IMO.

Also there's the question of how they're going to bring back all the Decepticons that got killed off. Granted, they did bring back dead Transformers before (Megatron and Prime in ROTF)...maybe they can make Megatron into Galvatron, his rebuilt (and even more insane) incarnation from the later seasons (and animated movie)? or even have Starscream's remains become Cyclonus or Scourge (Since outside of the toys Thundercracker or Skywarp were never introduced).

Re: Will Transformers 4 & 5 Shoot Back-to-Back?

They don't need to bring back all the Deceptions or Autobots that were killed if they do another one though. There are plenty more characters Kruger and pluck from the mythos. The trouble is that they kind of limited themselves already by having Cybertron be a wasteland already in the films. Theoretically there could be all kinds of other TF's roaming and scattered about and on other of their colony worlds. That is if the TF's in the movie 'verse actually managed to colonize. I'd be in favour of rebooting the entire franchise. I don't know if Hasbro really wants to do that.

Oh course If they got Welker just be warned his Megantron isn't screechy anymore.

My point was that if Unicron is the same character in all TF universes, they can just portray him as such. They already know how Unicron should act because we have seen it. He's planet-sized - that's the scale.

The Fallen's supposed to be the same in every universe too, but the movie one is different. so.... yeah...

I think people would confuse him with Jetfire.
