If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Now for me personally, aside from the second one (Revenge of the Fallen), I really did like the Transformers film series. But thinking about what they could do in the future and what I would want to see in a third sequel (since I am a hardcore fan), I came to realize that they can't do anything interesting with what they already have that won't culminate into the same exact thing we saw before but with new human characters. So I just wanted to ask, if the Transformers series was eventually rebooted as was done with properties like Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man, what would you like to see done (cast, director, etc.)? I'd really like to see someone like Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man), Jonathan Liebesman (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans, Ninja Turtles), Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Justin Lin (the last three films in The Fast and the Furious series), Joss Whedon (The Avengers), or Alfonso Cuaron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, directorial contender for Speed Racer) take over the series. For actors, I'm not sure. I'm not one of the fans craving a film set on Cybertron, so I'd still want human characters. Maybe even revamp the ones from the first series (since they were revamps themselves of characters from the original cartoon). But I'm not sure about casting yet though. As for a design aesthetic, I'm fine with the "organic robot" look that's been going on, but I'd like some of the vehicle mode color schemes and robot designs to be modified. (take the flames off Prime, make Ironhide some form of red or maroon and give him a "roman-style" helmet, make Ratchet red and white and give him his helmet with the crest, make Jazz white instead of silver and make his helmet black, etc.)
I'm being serious.
Yeah I'm serious, a plot please!
Okay, the part about Michael Cain and Christopher Plummer sort of bewildered me (although I do think that Michael Caine would be an interesting choice for the voice of a character named Alpha Trion who, in the original animated series, was essentially the "father" of Optimus Prime) but I can agree with you on the part about the Decepticons needing to be more of a threat. Unfortunately, with Michael Bay in the previous films, he seemed to be the opposite of Quentin Tarantino; a director that likes his/her heroes more than his/her villains.
Josh Hutcherson. I don't want someone in his late 70s/early 80s playing a teenager/young adult. (even if you did decide to make him an older character, I still wouldn't see him fit for something like this)
Who says they'd be playing teenager/young adults?
Why couldn't you let the Autobots be the main characters, like they're supposed to be in the first place, and let the human characters be world leaders like the President of the United States, the Prime Minister of United Kingdom, or the Secretary-General of the United Nations?
Who said the Autobots were supposed to be the main characters?
Yeah, and Batman: Year One had Batman in the title, but a lot of the story was focused on Commissioner Gordon.
Cause he is an interesting and integral part of the Batman mythos. Shia LaButtfuck trying to bang Megan Fox isn't either to Transformers. Thats not even a proper comparison. Its like if in Batman, the first half of the movie is dedicated to some frat boy going on a panty raid before we even see the Joker.
Commissioner Gordon's been an integral part of Batman since the latter character was created.
He was introduced in the same issue of the same comic book that Batman was.
In fact, not counting the cover, Gordon was introduced before Batman, as he's seen in the very first panel of the very first Batman story.
Comparing any human character in a Transformers story to Commissioner Gordon in a Batman story is completely asinine.
Yeah, you're not funny.
