Michael Bay Transformers 4 News

Director Michael Bay has started talking about what his next explosion filled assault on your cherished childhood memories will be like, revealing details of his plans for the next Transformers movie.

When it was initially announced that the Transformers franchise was getting an instant ‘reboot’, many fans welcomed the apparent opportunity to fix some of the very obvious flaws in the lucrative but critically loathed series.   Confusion followed when it was swiftly confirmed that Michael Bay would indeed be returning to direct the CGI fighting robots for a 4th time.

Michael Bay and producers initially promised a ‘whole new re-imagining’ for the franchise, explicitly heralding it as a ‘reboot’. However despite quickly ditching the human cast of the recent Trilogy, Bay has now made it clear he won’t be entirely disregarding his previous masterpieces for Transformers 4.

“It’s not a reboot, that’s maybe the wrong word. I don’t want to say reboot because then people think we’re doing a Spider-Man and starting from the beginning. We’re not. We’re taking the story that you’ve seen, the story we’ve told in three movies already, and we’re taking it in a new direction. But we’re leaving those three as the history. It all still counts.”

As for potential storylines, having convincingly vanquished their Decepticon foes and exhausted their adventures on Earth there’s growing expectation that Transformers 4 will see our Autobot heroes venturing back off into space. Bay has cautiously admitted that this “feels like the way to go” but bizarrely expressed nervousness about “going too sci-fi”.

An odd concern for a director who’s already made three increasingly ludicrous movies about intergalactic robot civil war.
