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.

Genetic of TFND has come through again with a huge gallery of photos of Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition, the most heavily equipped and painted version of Transformers 1-3 Optimus Prime you will ever see. It has a ridiculous amount of equipment, all storable in its Murder Truck mode. And even articulated fingers - keep reading to see it all!
The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted a wealth of images of the new Ultimate Optimus Prime, showing off what almost has to be the definitive version of Optimus as he appeared in Transformers (2007), Revenge Of The Fallen, and Dark Of the Moon. Featuring comparisons to the previous APS-01 release, Ultimate Prime features lots more paint and a tremendous loadout of weapons. The figure's due for release on April 24th but in the meantime you can keep reading to see the mirrored gallery of 43 images!
Cinematic Universes are a Thing right now, with Marvel and Star Wars leading the way. Now, according to Deadline, Paramount is looking at their biggest movie property with an eye towards more varied (and frequent) releases. To that end they're enlisting writer Akiva Goldsman, whose credits range from the drama A Beautiful Mind to the well-received TV series Fringe ...to Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. This should be interesting. The story also hints that Michael Bay may unsurprisingly be returning for Transformers 5 after his current movie project - or at least that TF5 won't go ahead until that project is complete.

Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has posted images of the upcoming Hybrid Metal Figuration Age of Extinction Bumblebee from Herocross, a large figure featuring (as the name implies) diecast metal in its construction. It's due for July at a price of $130, and looks decently poseable and highly accessorized as far as SD figures go. Keep reading to see!
ToysRUs Japan has posted new images of Black Knight Optimus Prime! Based on Armor Knight Optimus Prime, the heavily-reworked version of Generations Leader-class Optimus, Black Knight Prime is every bit as extensively painted as the Armor Knight version and looks great. The figure is due for release in August at a price of 8,638 Yen after tax. Keep reading for the photos!
