Michael Bay Talks The Bumblebee Movie With MTV In Short Interview

As it turns out, several days ago Michael Bay stopped to have a quick chat with MTV in a video clip available on MTV's Facebook page. The questions focused mostly on next year's Bumblebee spinoff movie, with a bit of the conceptual angle of it revealed. There was also the ever-present question of whether Bay was truly leaving the franchise behind now. Whether he is or not (his response was decidedly non-committal) he did say he wants to direct one of the later spinoff movies, so he's likely to be back in some capacity or another no matter what. Keep reading to see more.

In the video, Bay explains that 2018's Bumblebee movie is going to be set farther back in the timeline than the "main" movie series is, and says it's "just about [Bumblebee]", which fits with the existing interpretation that none of the other major Transformer characters from the movies so far are likely to be involved. Though if it is a prequel as it seems to be represented, it could be a good chance to get some more mileage out of any of the casually discarded characters from the last decade of movies, even if just in small roles. Bay also noted that the spinoff next year will be aiming a little bit younger, which might be welcome news to those who feel the main series movies might be a little bit too intense for younger viewers.
