IGN has confirmed that he's out. Along with one of the main TF fan sites following suit in the post.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/10/30/no-transformers-5-for-michael-bay-directing-benghazi-drama-instead


While Bay does have a certain visual style that works for these types of movies, I think that another director is great 4 movies in. This will be more akin to the soft reboot that the franchise needs IMO.

So, Optimus Prime may finally lose the flames. Let the thread begin!

    I hope Steve Jablonsky is still in the production. I like the music he composed for the movies. I really would be excited if they did a new writing team.

    So looks like Mark Wahlberg will be back for the next movie. To be honest, his role makes a lot more sense than Shia's. You have a scientist that at least understands their side of things. I wonder if this will lead up to the "-master" technology from G1.

    Actors are nice, but it's the story and direction news that are moreso the case to make or break the movie (unless they bring his daughter or Irish Shia back into the mix).

    Not directly related to Transformers 5, however we may be getting a pre-quel cinematic film based on Cybertron

    Transformers - THE DECADE!

    Hasbro has now confirmed at least 4 movies in the next 10 years. That includes movies 5, 6, 7, and 8

    http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/619217-transformers-movies-for-the-next-10-years

    I want to be excited, but with the way the Tranformers market is right now (figure-wise) and how some other movie decisions were made, it just sounds like a soul-less cash grab. I could be wrong, but there hasn't really been a great/ mindblowing Transformers movie yet (yes that includes the 1986 one). I watch them, and "enjoy" them, but I want something to have me shed man-tears once it is over. With the exception of the Beast Wars, so many stories in print media have blown the socks off of anything produced in animated G1 and/or the movie

    This... will not end well.

    I am all about this saga, but this is ridiculous. I just hope that this next wave of movies have a beginning and end. I really hate that everything has become a franchise. Put some good stuff out and stop focusing on how to stretch a dollar for 25 years.

    Transformers 1 came out in 2007. The last movie called for in this franchise will be 2025. A Person that was 7 when that movie came out will be 25 when this is done. The franchise itself will be 41 years old. I fear that anyone in their mid 20s- early 30s will be the last generation to understand what "nostalgia feels" actually are.

    Check out some of the Masterpiece line. There are some gems within the line up. Yeah, they lack paint in some regards, but the engineering required to take a vehicle and change it into a robot with solid articulation is a pretty solid feat that is has over the Gunpla builds. Love the design or hate it, the Leader Class Optimus Prime mold from Revenge of the Fallen has to be the most detailed mainline transformer release we have ever gotten. APS-01 and APS-01U are the versions that show how truly awesome that figure is.

    The only thing that could make this news really terrible is announcing that Bay is the director for them all. I really want to see someone new in the chair this time.

    Did this muthafucka dare say that the 1986 animated Masterpeice that was the original Transformers movie, wasn't mind-blowing or great?!

    Aside from Rodimus's character being neutered with an inferiority complex, and Galvatron never taking his meds, I thought Season 3 was pretty damn cool.

    I am a G1 die hard, but lets be honest, after the Autobot City battle was over and the reformatting, it just lulls along. It wasn't bad, its just ok. @po pimpus and I are in agreement. Just got the chance to watch it at TFCon a few weeks back. Peel the nostalgia lens off and it becomes very clear. It's the first 1/2 hour and production value that makes it epic. Movie did some great things character wise, but in the end I find it fun for the moments it came with, not the sum of its parts.

    . . . . . . . and yes, S3 Galvatron was the truth.

    I haven't seen really much about the new movies outside of the writers talking about how "awesome" things will be. I wish Hasbro would take a page from Disney's book on how to do a franchise.

    You say this like transformers wasn't meant to be a soulless cash crab right out of the gate. Almost every cartoon in the 80's were made for one reason. To sell toys.

    Also +1 for the TF animated move not being that great after Hot Rod gets Optimus Murdered and Unsolved Mysteries can't cut it as a prime cause he's a bitch.

    The sound track is the only thing that stays great throughout the movie.

    I was crazy dissapointed whhen i heard Bay would be directing the 5th one. WTF.

    Now, don't get me wrong, i'm not one of those bay-haters, and can appreciate the recognition he has brought to my beloved franchise that rightfully deserved it. However, after all the time, it's time for SOMEBODY ELSE to take the reigns.

    We already seen Bay's directing style, how he makes his characters, the jokes, how he crafts his story, etc, etc. There will be NOTHING new whatsoever. Just more of the same, that we've already seen the past 10 years.

    Enough already. Let someone else tackle Transformers. Bay's time has passed.

    So Transformers is pulling a Marvel and about to launch a Hasbro Cinematic Universe which will include ROM Knight, G.I.Joe, Visionaries, Micronauts, and M.A.S.K.?

    If Bay wasn't at the helm, I would lose my shit in a good way. Let me ping @Million just in case he might be interested.
