Michael Bay has said he will return to direct Transformers 5, but after that he’s all done. No more Transformers for him. He’s said this sort of thing before, yet always come back. But this time really might be different.
Paramount has just offered release dates for the next three Transformers films. Part five will come out June 23, 2017. Part six will come out June 8, 2018. And part seven will come out June 28, 2019.
That’s one Transformers movie per year for three years. Michael Bay works quickly, but not that quickly. Which means we’re going to find out what a non-Michael Bay Transformers movie looks like. I can’t even imagine!
These will be the first films created in Akiva Goldsman’s writers room. Supposedly there will also be spinoffs and a big, cohesive Transformers universe with grand mythology and all that. I’ll believe it when I see it.
