Looks like Optimus Prime and the Autobots will soon be dealing with a prehistoric batch of aliens. THR reports that Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura has confirmed long-standing rumors that the Dinobots will show up in the fourth live action film to feature transforming aliens from Cybertron.
Not only that, but the studio has sent out a new teaser poster for the movie and the film’s subtitle. We witnessed the Revenge of the Fallen, we saw the Dark of the Moon, and now we’ll travel to the Age of Extinction.
We could sit here and talk about how the decision to include Dinobots might effect the overall narrative of the Transformers films thus far, but at this point in the series, it’s clear Michael Bay and his team are just going off the rails. Bay didn’t want to come back to direct a fourth movie, but when Paramount gave him the cash to make Pain & Gain, he agreed to come back. (I’m guessing millions and millions of dollars had something to do with his decision, too.) Mark Wahlberg is leading the cast, and I just read that Bay has cast four Chinese actors in the film based on their performances in a reality show. I think that pretty much says it all, don’t you? I wouldn’t be surprised if Bay said to everyone, “Let’s make this as ridiculous and terrible as possible because we know people are going to go see it anyway.”
Also, someone at Paramount must have really loved Joss Whedon’s title for Avengers: Age of Ultron, because they’re stealing his thunder by a year. Age of Extinction hits theaters on June 27th, 2014. Do you care about the Transformers series anymore? Did you ever?
