While there were many fans who were not too pleased about the fact that Michael Bay had decided to return and make a fourth Transformers movie, you cannot deny that the movie has gone on to become a huge success, despite what some of the critics might say. Transformers: Age of Extinction was met with rather mixed reviews but still went on to make $243m at the US box office, while making $1.03bn worldwide.
The financial success of Transformers: Age of Extinction means that we will definitely get a Transformers 5 movie but who is going to be involved in the project. Michael Bay has once again announced that he is walking away from the Transformers franchise, much like he did following Transformers: Dark of the Moon, before then changing his mind and returning for Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Bay told USA Today, "There's kind of a new chapter, a new direction in movies I want to make. I have a lot of stories to tell. And it's about flexing new muscles." We will take his comments with a pinch of salt and would not be surprised to learn in a few months time that he has once again changed his mind and is coming back for Transformers 5.
One person that we would like to see returning for Transformers 5 is actress Nicola Peltz, who we felt was arguably the strongest performance in the entire film. She stood out about Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor but we wouldn't mind seeing them all come back. There has even been talk of Megan Fox making a cameo return for the film but that is just rumour for now.
