While many may not be looking forward to the next installment in Michael Bay’s Transformers series, but we have been left in the dark regarding many details on the film. Those who are willing to give the film a chance are wondering what the story will be and whether or not it will be shot in 3-D. Collider has the latest updates on the third film:
Transformers 3 will be in 3D
Characters that die stay dead
Bay says “This one really builds to a final crescendo. It’s not three multiple endings.” He goes on to say, “As a trilogy, it really ends. It could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending.”
The villain is Shockwave
“Shia has this great line: ‘You know, I’ve saved the world twice, but I can’t get a job,’ ” di Bonaventura says.
The movie features a space race between the U.S.S.R. and the USA
They aim to upgrade the franchise with a more coherent story and less goofball humor
Regarding the criticism of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Bay says, “I’ll take some of the criticism. It was very hard to put (the sequel) together that quickly after the writers’ strike (of 2007-08).”
Also, Siebertron has word that James Avery, best known as Uncle Phil on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will be voicing the Autobot Silverbolt:
“James Avery is doing great and will assume the voice role of “Silverbolt” in the upcoming blockbuster Transformers 3.”
This finally puts an end to the debate about the legitimacy of the “script” that was leaked back in December. If anyone knows me, then you know how I feel about the film being shot in 3-D and knew it was inevitable. When Bay says that characters will stay dead, I wonder if that means Optimus will die once again. Having Shockwave as the villain seems odd to me as he was always one of Megatron’s lackies. Also, I really can’t see him taking on Optimus or Megatron, but we’ll see. I’m just glad the character will be brought in. The humor has always been a problem when it came to enjoying the films and it’s good there will be less of that. Bay did state that Agent Simmons will return, but guarantees The Twins will not be in the film. Bay briefly spoke on the departure of Megan Fox stating they dropped her character a week before filming began. I’m sure Lebeouf will be alright with her replacement Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. No word on how the absence of Fox’s character will be explained.
I wonder with the inclusion of Silverbolt that we’ll get to see the other Arialbots, and maybe even Superion.
