Transformers: Age of Extinction Set Up For Trilogy
Michael Bay has revealed that Transformers: Age of Extinction is meant to be considered the start of a new film trilogy.
Yes we are talking another trilogy…Cool right?
Here is what Bay had to say about the potential Transformers: Age of Extinction trilogy:
It’s kind of like a new Transformers,” Bay explained.
“We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one; it’s the first of a new trilogy.
“I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing [the others], but that’s what it’s meant for.”
Alongside a new storyline, Transformers: Age of Extinction features a new male lead in Mark Wahlberg, a new class of robots, the Dinobots and a new Transformer who is neither Autobot or Decepticon, a bounty hunter named Lockdown.
“Lockdown is an interesting character,” said Bay. “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… 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,” he continued, “and that opens up a whole other gigantic world for Transformers.
“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.”
Transformers: Age of Extinction is due to be released on June 27, 2014.
