Transformers 4 - To Reboot OR Not To Reboot That IS The Question - Mark Wahlberg Says COMPLETE REBOOT

By Jack on Thursday, January 17, 2013



Transformers 4 actor Mark Wahlberg appeared on Jay Leno's The Tonight Show last night dropped a bomb contradicting Micheal Bay's recent insistence that #4 is NOT a reboot. "We’re doing a complete reboot of the Transformers..." Wahlberg went on to say about the flim he'll be playing a leading role in. Does something smell fishy here? It is not unlikely this is Mr. Bay's sly way of trying to tease some viral action for the movie that even he originally said WILL be a reboot. See the comments and video now.
We’re doing a complete reboot of the Transformers. I did a movie with Michael Bay called Pain and Gain, which comes out in April. And we had an amazing time together and really hit it off, and he said ‘Hey, you want to do this other little movie I’m doing?’ Because that was a little movie, and I said ‘Yeah, I like doing little movies.' And he said Transformers. Whoa! You know what, we had such a great experience, I’m in.

Watch the full Jay Leno's The Tonight Show from Janauary 16, 2013 with Mark Wahlberg, his comments start around the 1:30 time in the video below.

Soft reboot, Mark often describes stuff being good like Sunkist. I'm saying he may not know the difference.

Hopefully he goes to a more traditional robot design. At least in the faces.

Reboot in story and, hopefully, character design.
