Thread: Transformers 3 Villain Revealed, Set In 3D

    Default Transformers 3 Villain Revealed, Set In 3D

    The first step to fixing a mistake is admitting a wrong. For his part, Michael Bay has done that verbally.

    Bay admitted the second "Transformers" movie deserved some of the negative feedback it received: "I'll take some of the criticism. It was very hard to put (the sequel) together that quickly after the writers' strike [of 2007-2008]." OK, fair enough. Now he's trying to fix the abomination that was "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" through his actions, too.

    Bay revealed in an interview with USA Today two tidbits about the third Transformers film that should make fans happy. First came a decision that should surprise absolutely nobody: The third film is being shot in 3D (even though Bay had hinted in the past that it wouldn't be). In a more surprising announcement, Bay confirmed that fan-favorite Shockwave will be a featured villain.

    Shockwave has an interesting history as a toy and as a Transformer. Shockwave's mold was originally produced by a company called ToyCo. Hasbro purchased the rights to add him to the Transformers universe, but not before quite a few other companies did the exact same thing.

    Shockwave, with a different paint job, appeared in toy stores around Christmastime, confusing many young Transformers fans (including this author) by being sold under names such as "Galactic Man."

    As a Transformer, Shockwave -- who could transform into a powerful laser gun -- was left in charge of the Transformer home planet Cybertron as the Autobots (the good robots) and Decepticons (the bad robots) battled against each other on Earth. Shockwave made an admirable and powerful leader in waiting.

    Transformers fans will be the first to heed this warning: Don't get too excited about this announcement. Remember when Michael Bay also announced that fan-favorite Soundwave would be featured in the second film? Remember how that turned out? Soundwave, who as a toy transformed into a cassette player, spent about three minutes onscreen (if that) as some sort of spy satellite in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

    These announcements were made on the set of the third "Transformers" film, where shooting has already begun without former star Megan Fox, who was dropped from the series just a few weeks before filming got underway. The other human star of the "Transformers" franchise, Shia LaBeouf, is coping without his former costar. "I love Megan and I miss the girl," LaBeouf told USA Today.

    The yet-to-be-titled third "Transformers" movie is due in theaters July 1, 2011.

    Somebody should explain to Bay that everybody wants Unicrom.

    Shockwave is a great choice. I hope that both Unicron and Primus are mentioned in TF3. They should at least do that.

    Shockwave's cool.. I just hope they don't make him into a pussy. If they're going with Gen 1 then perhaps the Dinobots can be mentioned/featured also. If TF3 makes a lot of $$ then they'll definitely make a 4 eventually. It's a rich universe of characters if done properly they can make a few more easily. How about Omega Supreme? Just kidding.

    Unfortunately, Michael Bay stated that he never liked the Dinobots. What Michael Bay has to understand is that it doesn't matter what he likes, it's what the fans love and enjoy. IF the Dinobots were to be in TF3, Bay would either give them short air time or make them silly and stupid characters like the young Autobot Twins.

    By the way, Omega Supreme would be NICE!

    I saw parts of #2 and though it was complete horseshit. The end part where they have robots coughing, out of breath, and giving eachother parts? Sounds more like a cheesy pr0n IMO. Who ordered Sausage? motions toward groin

    I think it should get a new director/reboot after this one. Number one was good, two was kinda weak, and I hope three is good. If there's a next TF movie (like there's never going to be another) they should bring up the Dinobots. I know Micheal Bay isn't a fan of them (which is why I'm hoping it gets a new director eventually) but they would be better than the Fallen in part two. After all this is still a fantasy movie, as if real cars/trucks turn into real robots.
