Today the poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction was revealed. It’s the same Transformers 4 logo that we’ve seen before, but it looks like a fossil from a dig site for dinosaur bones. This concept, plus the term “extinction” being in the title both seem to point toward the inclusion of some of my favorite characters: the Dinobots.
Initially they weren’t included because Michael Bay and his team couldn’t figure out how to incorporate them into the world that they’d created. I figured they might as well just do them the same way the cartoon did, with an Autobot building them. However, it seems they may have found a way, which hasn’t been confirmed or revealed. I am very excited at the idea of finally having the Dinobots join the adventure. As someone that’s enjoyed every film that’s been released so far, I am looking forward to this movie with great interest.
I’m hopeful that Grimlock is every bit as cool in live-action as I have dreamed he would be since they started making these movies about seven years ago. I just can’t believe it’s taken eight years to get to this point.
Transformers: Age of Extinction will be in theaters on June 27, 2014.
