Re: Michael Bay out of the way!
Thing is the man is tired of doing the same thing for so long. The producers should realise that people will get tired of the franchise as well if they keep on making movies so often.
First off, lets see how well ROTF does in the Box Office.
Then let Bay do his thing for a year and you ll see that he ll be asking to come back.
The next sequel will come in 3-4 years instead of two, thats all.
I think that a different director could correct some of Bay's direction mistakes and make a better movie. But the risk of getting a hack director is too high. Imagine the new director wanting to make it grimdark hoping to succeed like the Dark Knight or whatever.
