Transformers 4 Coming Summer 2014 (Updated)

In an interview with Coming Soon to promote G.I. Joe Retaliation, Transformers producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura confirmed that Transformers 4 is shooting for a summer 2014 release date. Michael Bay has not yet made the decision on whether he will return to direct the film. It seems that the G.I. Joe sequel (which jettisoned all but three actors) inspired the idea of going with a smaller cluster of characters that uses an existing story thread from the previous films to avoid a full reboot. However, this soon in the process means that all ideas are probably still on the table especially if Bay decides to sign up for another installment.

Update: Michael Bay has confirmed he is returning to direct Transformers 4 with a release date of June 29th, 2014.
"We’ll be there in the summer of 2014," he confirmed, as well as addressing (albeit vaguely) whether Michael Bay will be returning as director or not. "Michael had a debate because he sort of felt at first that he'd done three. Michael and I are both the same in that we always like to top ourselves. That doesn't necessarily mean bigger. It can be bigger in places, it just means different, but we're going to push really hard as fresh and new as we can be."

He compares doing a fourth "Transformers" movie to what they're doing with the "G.I. Joe" sequel by having a few characters return as well as telling a story that does follow-up from a plot set-up in its predecessor without necessarily fully "rebooting." "Again, we're going to try to do a hybrid there where there will be some characters that come forward--we think, we're still in the process of figuring it out--and some characters that don't, but it will definitely be a different story."

  1. my only concern is the transformer characters... a shit ton of main deceptions have been killed off already.. you can only bring so many characters back to life so many times

  2. Galvatron, Scourge, Cyclonus, maybe Soundwave will be brought back.

  3. Agreed to the above, Optimus should of just crippled megatron, for him to be repaired as Galvatron, and I really dont care what happened to sentinel since he KILLED IRONHIDE >:/

  8. Have any of you actually seen the original animated Transformers movie from 1986? Ironhide, Ratchet and a lot of other characters died. Even Optimus Prime! But new characters were introduced that some of still fondly remember: Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus, Kup, Springer, Cyclonus, and of course, GALVATRON. So who knows what'll happen. Who knows what new characters will come along. Maybe some of them will suck. Maybe some of them will be fuckin AWESOME. I'm game! :)

  10. I still wish there was a way to incorporate the Dinobots! I know it would be hard without coming across as silly but to see them on the big screen live action would complete my life as a fan boy!!

  11. Same Jesse. and true LionBoogy. I have seen a lot of the original transformers but I guess it's just my opinion that there are some core characters that work better.. but I guess I'm down for some change
