Transformers 4 - Michael Bay Tells Forbes No Reboot: We Keep the Transformers the Way they Were
Jack - Saturday, February 02, 2013


And the story flips and flops and flops again on whether the fourth Transformers movie will be something new and fresh or something old and continuing. According to the interview Bay just did with Forbes Magazine, he's saying the reboot that Mark Wahlberg recently talked about is "No, that’s wrong." and went on to be specific about what we can expect to see, saying: " We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later." Stating that the original plan to change the look of the franchise has not changed and they would be doing things "smaller" this time.
Will that change the way you do anything on Transformers 4?

We’re going to start off smaller. There’s a brand new cast. To freshen the franchise we’ve redesigned everything from top to bottom. The history of the first three movies is still there, we start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast...

So is 4 a reboot?

No, that’s wrong. We keep the Transformers the way they were, it’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go.

So there we have it, what we think is the last word on the subject of the reboot. In other words, it is not happening. There's a new cast of humans, but it appears we're going to be see the Transformers along the same lines that we did in the first three movies. How do you feel about this? Leave a comment below with your thoughts on Transformers 4 and beyond.

It would have been more exciting if they didn't change the end of DOTM during production.

Maybe we could have another Pretender this time and Michael Bay could be its host. He could be the perfect villain.

Maybe Liege Maximo will appear as a disciple of Unicron.

Who is the enemy? I mean that's the problem with saying the last movie was the last and killing off the antagonists...

Maybe it could at least be a smaller story without the fate of the world at stake? After all, they did that three times already.

Happy Weibo Leak Day, I guess? The same Weibo source that brought us the image of the box back panel now has posted images of the upcoming Movie Series Blackout and its accessory Scorponok! The figure is quite impressive looking, and as we learned from the packaging already, boasts a 46-step transformation. Keep reading to see!
Next up on the leaks from Weibo users this morning, "tf-factory" has also dropped package-back images of Leader Brawl and Megatron from the upcoming movie line! ...but, they've been marked through. Either someone's being an extra-clever leaker, or Hasbro has gone very effectively low-tech in their leak prevention efforts! But if you'd like an unobstructed view of an as-yet unreleased figure we've also mirrored images of Authentics Grimlock here. Keep reading!
A user on Weibo has shared out a partial image of the back of box for an upcoming Blackout toy. What is presumed to be a Leader Class figure from the recently-named 'Studio Series' lineup as revealed via Toys R Us inventory data can be seen (in typical CG render style) in both robot and vehicle modes, and includes a small scorpion mode Scorponok partner figure just as the original Voyager Class Blackout did way back in the 2007 movie line. Little specifics can be discerned, but we do get to see the call-out for a 46 step transformation process, to which we can say only: Yikes! Click through to view the full size image.
The 4K UHD release the first four Transformers films: TRANSFORMERS, TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON and TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, which will be released on December 5th (TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT is available now on 4K UHD). All releases come in a 3-disc 4K UHD/Blu-ray Combo Pack with Digital copy.
A piece on Variety earlier this week reveals that Huahua Media out of China and Paramount Pictures are ending what was supposed to be a multi-year investment deal that would see the Chinese company contribute financing to numerous film productions. If this sounds vaguely familiar, it should. In August, Paramount execs flew to China to smooth things over after a string of movies - most recent at the time being Transformers: The Last Knight - failed to perform to expectations. Paramount says they'll pursue financing partnerships elsewhere - including with Hasbro - but on the whole it's probably still not good news at all. Keep reading for more details!
