Actor Mark Wahlberg appeared on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show and said few things about Transformers 4.“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.”
This statement conflicts with what the Director; Michael Bay told us not too long ago. However, the statement may also refer that they’ll be going in a fresh direction rather than a reboot as the name implies.
The episode is now available online and 2005 Boards Member Albershide instructs us to skip to the 25th minute to hear what Mr. Wahlberg has to say.

Yes but Michael Bay doesn't know anything about Transformers and that hasn't stopped him from making three films
This is sophistry (about "reboot"), guys, do not play with words!
Wahlberg impresses as serious man. I guess he got the role of the main military.
He doesn't know as much about the film as Bay does. I guess he got his terms wrong.
Yeah, sorry for singling you out like that. It was more of a general answer to a bunch of posts.
As far as shooting time goes…
Maybe his part is smaller in it, and therefore he doesn't need as much time to get his stuff in the can. ROTF was a truncated shoot due to the fact that they had to go to production with an incomplete script. It was inbetween drafts due the the writers strike, and frozen in place as a result, but production had to roll forward, hence the big the shiny turd we got.
wasn't Revenge of the Fallen shot in roughly 90 days?
Yeah we are lol
maybe mr bay get idea from key of vector sigma saga
megatron used all spark put his stunitcons to live and optimus used all spark put his arielbots to live
It's not a reboot. It's a re-hash.
Using leftovers to create another dish. That's all.
I saw the trailer last night for "Pain & Gain", Bay's next movie.
I looked at everyone's faces as they asked "what is this shit?"
I replied: "what to expect for Transformers 4".

I think for Micheal Bay reboot the computer means to kick it again because someone broke his fire wall and stole another script.
Seibertron doesn't know what reboot means either. On their front page they're like, this directly conflicts with director Michael Bay's statement blah blah blah. Real good reporting there.
Oh it is logic in the term you said: they reboot it, same continuity, some of the old bots and a new story, such a kind of an update
by reboot, he actually means, quite literally, michael bay, has rebooted his computers.
No and wrong. Batman '89 and Batman Begins may both be set in 'Gotham City' but they are VEEEEERRRRRRRRYYYY different Gotham Cities. They are definitely set in different universes. You can say alternate universes or parallel universes, but the point is that they are not in the same universe. At all. They don't share the same timeline. If they shared a universe, you'd be able to say one happened before the other. The events of one movie would be history of the other. But as we know, that isn't the case.
And no, none of the various takes on Middle Earth… Jackson/Bakshi/Rankin-Bass/whatever else take place within the same universe. Jackson's movies exist in their own shared universe, and everything else has its own. Same setting does not equal same universe. You have that exactly backwards.
Reboot doesn't mean a different universe either. Batman Begins is a reboot to Batman 89', but both of them were set in Gotham. They may have had different lores, but the term 'universe' mostly refers to setting. Different movies can have different 'takes' of the same universe. If there is ever a Lord of the Rings reboot, it'll have a different take (maybe), but still set in Middle Earth, and hence, the same universe.
Almost. But less entertaining. I suppose all TF4 news could remain unreported until after everyone has seen the movie.
Wait and see, wait and see.
And then we'll see what this will be.
It's too hard to say right now.
What will happen, why and how?
Did he whip his large rubber junk out too?
Because it's much cheaper to film humans written to specifically annoy you than it is to make an entire movie with the overly complicated TF designs and massive explosions that Bay insists on having.
