I hope you guys aren’t bored of Transformers movies yet, because it looks like we’re only halfway through them. Well, halfway through the planned ones (so far).
According to SlashFilm.com, Michael Bay (director of Transformers 1-4) has set up Transformers: Age Of Extinction to be the first in a new Transformers trilogy, but they also reported that Bay would not confirm if he’d return for the next two instalments.
While doing the interview with EW, Michael Bay gave some plot details, a new image of Grimlock and some explanation to help fans bridge the gap between the two “trilogies” (the second starting with Age Of Extinction).

He let slip some serious plot points:
“[The government] wants to wipe out all the Transformers, all the Autobots. Optimus has lost all faith in humankind, and I’m trying to convince him there is still good in the world and we need to work together.”
Bay put Optimus Prime’s mindset more succinctly, explaining, “He’s done good for earth, and he’s been fucked over.” As a result, Bay promised, we’ll see “angry Optimus Prime.”
As well as angry Optimus Prime, Bay gave some character details for LockDown, you may have seen him in the trailer and called him GunFace…
Bay gave a little information about the new character:
Lockdown is an interesting character. He travels the galaxy, he works for somebody else. And he’s here for one person, one alien, and then he’s out of here. So he doesn’t really want to take sides. The cause and balance of the galaxy is kind of messed up when different species play with different species. And that opens up a whole other gigantic world for Transformers.
The director (Michael Bay) refused to give more information about Grimlock, but said that all will be explained in the movie:
I like to keep things very much in the dark. But yes, you’ll understand why they’re there when you see the movie. If you think I’m supposed to give away a lot of story points? No way! Keep it secret.
But some information won’t even be explained until the next Transformers (Transformers 5):
Lockdown’s ship has a lot of meaning that can go into other movies. There’s a lot of backstory about that ship that’s not laid out here. You’re going to see a few things where you’re like ‘What is that? And what is that?’ And you’re going to see a couple shots like, ‘Wait a minute, who are they?’ But we don’t answer those questions.
What do you guys think? Any thoughts on there still being three or more Transformers movies still to come? Do you think Mark Wahlberg has signed on for the new trilogy?
