“This one really builds to a final crescendo,” Bay told USA Today. “It’s not three multiple endings… As a trilogy, it really ends. [The franchise] could be rebooted again, but I think it has a really killer ending.”
The director also revealed who the villain is. Ready? It’s Shockwave, the one-eyed overseer of Cybertron whose toy turned into a wicked purple laser canon thing.
As for the plot? “The new film features Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) taking his first tenuous steps into adulthood while remaining a reluctant human ally of Optimus Prime.”
Through this story, a mystery of sorts emerges, as TF3
centers around the “space race between Russia and the U.S.”, while implying that the Transformers played a hidden role in mankind’s first exploration of the galaxy.
And fanboys, try not to faint – but yes, despite initial
reluctance on Bay’s part, Transformers 3D is happening.
