    Not that I am a huge fan of the Bayformers movies...but if indeed there are more...Jason Statham in a lead role instead of Shia would be interesting. If Bay doesn't direct then I'd much rather see it re-booted instead of it continuing like the previous Bayformers movies. I'd prefer Michael Bay stay away from Transformers but " Transformers: Dark of the Moon was an immense financial hit earlier this summer, reaching the fourth spot on the all-time worldwide box office list with $1.119 billion earned. " doesn't seem likely.

    I personally have enjoyed the Transformers Prime show on The Hub more than these films. :borg:

    I don't care how they're lined up. Just make sure they're dead after the shots are fired.

    Bay or no Bay, they're going to keep making Transformers movies as long as they keep raking in the money. I personally dislike it when they film sequels back-to-back, because that generally leads to two movies trying to tell a story that really only needed one movie (as was the case with the Matrix sequels and the first two Pirates sequels).

    There is no plot left really :rolleyes: Where the hell can they go apart from maybe a prequel set on Cybertron.

    they could, if they wanted to spend a stupid amount of money, do a star-spanning adventure with Autobots on other worlds battling Decepticons before they arrive on Earth...

    there's still a few MacGuffins left to use, the Golden Disk, the Key to Vector Sigma....

    They should just do a Transporter and Transformers crossover movie because that is what is going to look like anyways. Right up Bay's alley.

    They should shoot them as far away from Bay, Kurtzman and Orci as possible.

    Transformers was ok, an entertaining enough film, Transformers 2 was watchable but pretty crap. Transformers 3 was just garbage however, with no redeeming features and jam packed full of stupid plots and gratuitous lingering shots of the Megan Fox replacement.

    Given the choice i would have any future movies reboot the franchise, with a completely different creative team.

    Jason Stratham was first brought up as a rumoured replacement for Josh Duramel who pretty much has said that he wouldn't be returning for any more films. Shia is done as well. Michael Bay I think has been quoted as stating that he wouldn't come back for a fourth film but then he's back tracked and "changed' his mind on previous statements he has made as well. It might be implausible but I'd want a "Beast Wars" film.

    Unicron. But I guess that was already done with Rise of the Silver Surfer.

    4 could end mid-explosion where part 5 will immediately pick up.

    I thought I read an interview from a while ago from Orci and Kurtzman who stated that they thought Unicron would be too difficult to bring into the movie universe, I realize they're not the writers of the films any more but I'm pretty sure they were asked about this. It was someone related to the films at any rate.

    ^ Isn't Unicron supposed to be exactly the same in all of the divergent TF universes?

    ^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.

    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.

    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.
