Michael Bay on decision to tackle 'Transformers 4', Doesn't want someone else to "screw it up"
Oh, Michael Bay. You never cease to confound and annoy fanbases everywhere. While getting the Ninja Turtles script situation figured out, the infamous director explained why he's on board for the next Transformers movie. The plan was to release the three previous films then reboot with a new cast and crew. I guess Bay isn't quite ready yet to unhook those claws. Just when fans of the franchise thought they were out, he pulls us back in.
With Bay on board, Transformers 4 will continue the storyline from last year's Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The director himself gives the following reason for his return.
Someone could come along and "screw up" Transformers more than you have, Mike? Are you kidding me? The man must keep a lot of ass-kissers within reach to think this is some sacred ground that only he can walk on. If anything, a change of pace is exactly what Transformers 4 needs. It has already gone so far off the deep end from the source material that I barely even recognize it anymore. You've had your time in the sun and looking a little burned at this point. Leave the reigns for someone else to pick up.
Thankfully, Bay seems primed to make this his last foray with the "robots in disguise" according to his following statement.
So, what this translates to is, "This franchise is still making me a buttload of money and no one is taking it away from me. If this bombs, then I'm out. If not... we'll see." Aye carumba! Do you believe Michael Bay should be helming a fourth film or are you ready for someone else to take over? Let us know in the comments section below.
Oh no we wouldn't want someone to screw it up, heaven forbid.
why not give him something he shouldn't be able to screw up maybe my little pony and have someone make a really awesome transformers movie
The headlines the very next day would read "Man kills Michael Bay, self in Transformers-fueled hate crime". XD
He's...fighting with himself? He doesn't want the series ruined so he's ruining it more? There's something wrong with his logic @.@
Just die already.
Yes, we can't have someone else "screw it up", it has to be done by Mr. Bay...
Spoiler Alert for Transformers 4: Cybertron is actually Unicron :P
They should just make a movie based on the Prime Cartoon
I really enjoyd the first movie, but not the two others. But still, I'd preferred giving someone else a chance in the helm of Transformers 4.
The Transformers films aren't masterpieces by a long shot, but I still like 'em. The first one was fun and exceedingly enjoyable, the second had a lot of good build-up but a ridiculous and rushed ending, and the third seemed to just let it all hang out. If the original cartoon was about 2 teams of robots beating the hell out of each other for Energon cubes, then I don't think Bay is being as "unfaithful" to the source material as everyone claims. I don't hate or love the movies, though I will enjoy rewatching them from time to time. The Turtles reboot Bay was working on sounded iffy to me. But Bay helming a Transformers 4? I can think of worse things.
At least he's not ruining He-Man. :S
I will not watch Transformers 4, I will not watch his TMNT movie. Too much pain.
More like he rammed the iceberg then decided to take it with him as it slowly ground away at the ship until the ship sank with the iceberg still attached.
Judging from your avatar picture I can tell that you and I are probably kindred spirits in our love for Transformers. In any case, I can see Bay doing that exact thing. I honestly don't see how else he could top the shit-tastic ending that was the 3rd movie: "Oh hey here's this snake thing. Shockwave and Soundwave die like little bitches! Cruise missles kill everything now apparently. Deus ex machina, there's Cybertron...oh no wait we blew it up. Megatron dies like a bitch. Optimus says one line. Credits." I was hollow inside after seeing the 3rd movie. I need to watch some clips from the animated movie now...
I never thought Bay's Transformers were that bad. The Robot designs were pretty cool, and the Robot fights weren't bad either. They're good "popcorn movies" if you're looking for a cliche Action-Adventure with some Sci-fi thrown in.
I didn't like the first one, I was dragged into seeing the second one, and I absolutely refused to see the third one. There is no way on this earth that I will see another Michael Bay Transformers movie, period.
I wouldn't let this guy direct traffic,let alone another movie.
Because Transformers is his bitch......(╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
Bay + Explosions = Movie .... Nah I think I'm good.. -_-
Bay did one thing right: giant robot battles. I say we get Peter Jackson on board. Even if he knows nothing about transformers, he would still probably make a better movie.
