Megan Fox Will Live Through Transformers 3

Published 5 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 4:27 pm,

Over the last little while we’ve seen a little bit of a public make-up session between Megan Fox and Transformers director Michael Bay.

Throughout the summer, leading up to and following the release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, there was a ton of controversy and news reports following Megan Fox and what she had to say about the robot movies and their helmsman, Bay.

Some thought this might prevent or limit her role in Transformers 3 and that Michael Bay would act out of revenge and kill off her character. Of course, this was all unjustified and simply over-exaggerated out of the hype surrounding the film’s success this summer.

In July for instance, Fox said that working for Bay doesn’t involve acting and that he puts them through a boot camp-like experience just because it amuses him. In reply, Bay tossed her comments aside emphasizing that she’s young and doesn’t know what she’s saying, while taking credit for giving her the career, fame and fortune she has now.

This was one of many examples of Fox lashing out and other examples including her referring to him as “Hitler” in his style of directing. However, we’re seeing a different voice from her now (Public Relations) with her apology/show of appreciation she gave in her speech at this year’s Scream Awards.

Some have speculated that Megan Fox would – possibility as a result of this – have her character of Mikaela in Transformers 3 killed off by Bay, but there was little truth to that. Bay recently revealed otherwise in an interview with USA Today, confirming that she will be back in a “great role” for the next installment.

“I love her… It’s just, she’s young. Everyone’s got to give her a break, she only…23? It’s just hard. I’ve traveled around the world with her and she’s just like this world symbol now, you know?”

“She called me (after the Hitler comment) and goes, ‘It’s all bullsh—t, Mike.’ The press, they just like to prey, and stalk, and pounce and find a good little juicy thing. But she’s always wanted to do these crazy comments. That’s just her. She’s great.”

“She’s got a great part in Transformers 3.”

Does that great part involve young Mikaela Banes being stepped on by a Decepticon? “No, no. no,” he responded followed by a witty “She gets enough of that already.”

So, there you have it. It wouldn’t make sense for Fox or co-star Shia LaBeouf to be killed off in TF3 with the build-up of their relationship in the movies thus far. They are the main connection to the younger moviegoers and if they ever make a fourth installment, they’d probably want to have her make a (living) appearance.

That being said, it doesn’t matter. The vast majority of moviegoers are there for the action and the robots.

What do you want from Transformers 3?

Transformers 3 will be rushed for a July 1, 2011 opening.

  1. So, her non-Bay film flopped and now she wants to make nice? He might not have really handed her a career, but had anyone heard of her before Transformers? She seems to make a lot of thoughtless comments every opportunity she gets.

  2. Plain and simple,she’s an idiot that needs to just needs to keep her mouth shut.Every time she says something lately,she just makes herself look more and more like a numbskull.

    I think that her comment about working for Bay doesn’t involve acting.Well that’s perfect for her,considering that she can’t really act anyway.

  3. I was hoping that rumor about killing her off were true. I really can’t stand her at all anymore, and not having her pathetic excuse for acting would have been an improvement.

  4. All the total drama island aside, this third movie needs to pull the threads together, if that’s possible, and make an understandable version of the Transformer’s franchise out of itself. That or stick it back on the shelf and call it canned for now. Maybe in a decade some young hotshot director/writer can look back on Bay’s work and do him one or three better.

  5. Megan Fox? Acting?

    … you did say this is a “ROBOTS” film, right?

  6. Maybe they could off someone in the cast, might add a touch of drama to the special effects.

  7. Regardless of what her next project is, I’d like to see a love scene between her & Buddy Hackett.

  8. I wouldn’t mind if she was killed halfway through the movie. Maybe it pisses off bumblebee and he goes ballistic on the decepticons.

  9. awww man,
    her being stomped by a decepticon could be the start of the series improvong. lol

  10. I used to be a hater of Megan Fox, but now… you know it sounds like Megan’s big mouth has finall been put to good use. Albeit at the detriment of her career, she has revealed the flaw in the Bay machine, and the evidence of disaster? Transformers 1 & 2.

    She might be a precocious, impetuous, arrogant so-called actress but… she tells the truth. All hail megan for Wonder Woman! (if she could onlt act) Hey give the girl a break, she apologized, she’s learning.

  11. @The Pitt Man

    And what exactly is it that she’s told “the truth” about that’s so daring?


  12. … and yes, I know Buddy Hackett died in 2003.

  13. @ Vic

    I guess its no secret that Bay’s filmaking has flaws, but Megan’s “speak first think later” attitude makes for great entertainment in itself.

  14. Let’s be clear. She never apologized for anything at any point. She blamed the press for twisting her words and making things up.

  15. Jumpin’ Jesus, what’s all the hype about? Lets be clear about one thing. Megan Fox’s greatest assests don’t come from her stellar acting ability. They’re a little farther south than that. I mean, that first shot in TF2, straddling the cycle in the cycle shop…very easy on the eyes. But honestly, now, I can watch the scenes where she flies solo with the mute on, and some Metallica playing in the background.

    Michael Bay, for all his flaws, has a hell of a lot more going than she does. People compared her to Angelina Jolie once upon a time. I don’t hear that at all anymore. Why? Because Angelina is still hot, after all these years, because she is more than just a pretty face, DD’s, and an ass that you can bounce a dime off of.

  16. Disney started her career with that Lindsy Lohan movie she did. It was just in slo-mo mode till Bay picked her. I do not like Bay at all, so I’m glad when someone tells the truth about him, no matter who it is! Besides they got to keep her alive, till she gives birth to Daniel…………

  17. what i want? i want the next movie to give us a break and leave us alone

  18. @Pitt Man

    She doesn’t entertain me at all. Just annoys the heck out of me with her stupid statements.


  19. “She doesn’t entertain me at all. Just annoys the heck out of me with her stupid statements.”


  20. There are 4 reasons she is in any Transformer movie: 1) She has a pretty face 2) She looks good in tight shorts 3) Left cup 4) Right cup :-) Acting wasn’t in the equation. Come on! She was in TF2 because, like joeslankas said, she looked good straddling a bike and the slo-mo scene with her running. I had no idea who this woman ws before Transformers.

  21. so first they wanted to kill her off and now let her live? Bet if “Jennifers Body” did good at the box office and didn’t make her the bigger joke that she already was, she wouldn’t have boned michael bay harder than the last two times to stay in this film,which she of course brings nothing to the table anyways.

  22. Any hot girl would look good stratiling a bike. i mean the camera makes her look ten times better.. duh she looked hot when the camera angel is zoomed on her ass. and the mvie makes her look good. i hadno idea who she was efore this movie.

  23. who cares.

  24. I find Megan Fox amazingly hot, but that alone will not provide me with a good enough reason to be dragged to any Transformers sequels. I couldn’t even make it through the first one.

  25. Stupid statements…hmmmmm are we really gonna go there?

  26. megan fox is pretty. but so is a million other girls. she just seems hotter becuase she is known and famous.

  27. gotta love megan:)
    i dont want her to die!!!
    I mainly watch it fot sam and mikalea (or however you spell it lol:) so me dont want her to die any time soon:):)

  28. Why dont you all stop hating Megan, she is good at what she does and yes she have a lot to learn. but we all do SO STOP with the hating.

  29. You cant tell me that you have never done something dumb or said something dumb. LET HER ALONE. you all say she as a Big mouth well that goes both ways just so you know.
