Transformers 4?

transformers-4

Perhaps this is a bit premature, considering Transformers Dark of the Moon is still a few months away, but we’ve got the first hints that Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner would like the Transformers Movie franchise to continue beyond Transformers Dark of the Moon – and he very much hopes that director Michael Bay might return for a fourth outing, even though Michael Bay has stated on many occasions that he intends to make Dark of the Moon his final Transformers movie. Here is what Brian Goldner had to say on the matter:

I would say to you right now that I’ve so enjoyed working with Michael Bay. (He) has got this incredible visual sense for showing you things you’ve never seen before. Perhaps he’ll change his mind, perhaps he won’t, but I’d rather put out this movie first then cross that bridge at some point.

    Transformers 4 Will Happen with or Without Michael Bay - MovieWeb.com


    Transformers 4 will happen even without Michael Bay Even though director Michael Bay has declared that Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be his last turn at the helm of this mega-franchise, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner has come forward to say that it won't be the last Transformers.

    But Brian Goldner still holds out hope that Michael Bay will eventually change his mind and return to do Transfomers 4. Here is what Goldner had to say.


    "I would say to you right now that I've so enjoyed working with Michael Bay. (He) has got this incredible visual sense for showing you things you've never seen before. Perhaps he'll change his mind, perhaps he won't, but I'd rather put out this movie first then cross that bridge at some point.


    Brian Goldner also talked about his high hopes for Transformers: Dark of the Moon.


    "I really believe it is (the best film in the series), and the reason is because we've learned so many things as we've made [these films]. The fact is, there's a lot of story here...But we also understand the great spectacle of what 'Transformers' can be. It's a great marriage, but with greater meaning. The first trailer shows that the space race is a backdrop to something that had gone on in our past that nobody was aware of. In typical 'Transformers' fashion, it's all about more than meets the eye. That's the core of what 'Transformers' is: you can never judge a book by its cover. We're going to reveal to you, in much more of a thriller style than ever before, that idea of what's going on behind this whole 'Transformers' pre-history."


    Brian Goldner says that Transformers: Dark of the Moon has a higher stakes storyline this time out, and that they won't make the same mistakes as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.


    "Dark of the Moon' has many meanings. It's clearly what we know from the teaser trailer, but it's also this idea that there's darkness, a real cataclysm that could occur here based on knowing the truth of what's happening. If everyone had understood why each Transformer was in the movie, people wouldn't have cared how many there were. But once they're just these robots without any real meaning of why they're there, it just became robot melee, and that's not as enjoyable as knowing something about each robot and their personality so that when they do fight, there are stakes to it. That's really what was missing. It wasn't that there were so many robots; there were so many robots that you didn't know."

    keep it a trilogy. a 4th would be stupid. and if they kill ironhide in DOTM then i dont want a 4th without him

  3. Cyber-Scream's Avatar Cyber-Scream says

    I'd rather see a reboot with a whole new cast than TF 4 with a new director.

  4. rattimus prime's Avatar rattimus prime says

    keep it a trilogy, not every series can pull of a quadrilogy of almost one shotish movies. Unless they can pull a saga out of their asses they shouldnt bother with it, i mean look at the Star trek movies, they turned to shit after awhile and only thanks to a reboot have they come back into the now, if they go past three i would suggest the Saga approach with the last film featuring Unicron and possibly the Death of (all) the Transformers.

    But i take what Goldner say as meaning that DOTM will not have a Conclusive Ending and either have a non-climatic ending like ROTF where we knew there would be a new movie, Or a Ambiguous ending like the first one where they set up the stage for possible ways to do the next film, like the first one showed one piece of allspark shard remaining and showing the location of the dead cons and Starscreams retreat,

    Lessee...
    A fourth movie, from which the fandom will get more toys, the company will get more money...
    And might not have Micheal Bay as director?
    Oh thats just headed straight for disaster.

    Does Jame Cameron have some spare time away from water and blue people?

  7. FanimusMaximus's Avatar FanimusMaximus says

    The only 4th movie will be a reboot, and I am sure Michael Bay will not be directing it.

  8. Deceptichage's Avatar Deceptichage says

    I would vote for a reboot too. There are only so many movie toys I will buy.

  9. Wheeljack_Prime's Avatar Wheeljack_Prime says

    From a story standpoint, I'm not sure I'd like this.

    However, TF4 as opposed to TFReboot might net us some better toys of movieverse characters (or toys period, like the rest of the constructicons). Ah, who am I kidding?
