Transformers 4 Logo1 Rumor Patrol: Transformers 5 Coming Summer 2017

In just a few months, Transformers: Age of Extinction – the first Transformers film since 2011 – releases in theaters with director Michael Bay still at the helm and a brand new cast, including Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor.

Though the first trilogy was met with some criticism from fans and reviewers alike, the Transformers franchise nevertheless made billions of dollars at the box office and has remained a profitable series for Paramount. The decision to greenlight yet another film was a no-brainer, and now, if an old presentation is to be believed, there are even bigger plans in store.

A Hasbro slideshow presentation from 2012 for license holder Vilsco has leaked, and it provides new details about the future of the Transformers franchise. The most interesting slide is a calendar confirming Transformers 5 for Q2 of 2017. Also featured are presumably two animated features for Q1 of 2015 and Q1 of 2016 with curious new faction logos. Meanwhile, the concept art includes character designs for Silver Knight Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hound, Drift, Lockdown and Grimlock from Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Of course, the release of a fifth film in the franchise is largely dependent on the success of Transformers: Age of Extinction, but it seems Hasbro has very specific plans in mind about how events will unfold. So far their calendar appears to be going according to plan, so there’s no reason to expect that not to continue.

The character designs themselves are particularly interesting because we get a good look at the upgraded form of Optimus Prime, dubbed “Silver Knight.” There’s also artwork of Optimus Prime activating or bonding with the leader of the Dinobots, Grimlock, giving us a first look at what could be a key moment in Transformers: Age of Extinction. There are more images of merchandise, etc. over at TFW2005.

What do you think, Screen Rant readers? Are you excited for more films and the continuation of this new trilogy in the Transformers franchise? Do you want Michael Bay to return as a director, or do you think it’s time to pass the torch? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I like optimas prime hi is a terrific track I think they all creacter are mind blowing.

  2. I am exciting to see other transformers movie director Michael bay because is good director to direct the transformers trilogy and franchise that’s why I want Michael bay to return

    • Although after watching the sudden change of characters without an explanation is mind boggling !!!. What should be done is a transition film or clip even to clear up many mysteries. for example the third film ens with a city being blown up .(apologies i have forgotten) and in the fourth film form the trailer (i have not watched the film yet) there is no relief effort of to recovery of the city. Secondly there is no clear reason why bumblebee has to leave sam does the government track sa down and threaten to kill him or worse . Remembering America has stupid gun laws (i am British) . Surley with a sudden plot cange comes a change of director??? and a change of some non american actors since they set this movie in hongkong . e.g Jackie chan meets transformeers? would work . Also too many american flags when the setting is hong kong . PS. tHE MUSIC CHOICE IS TERRIBLE !! . Too much rock music . to convey emptions in my opinion emotional songs froma rtists such as nicki minaj (All things go ) or some the wonderful backgriund music that buzzfedd uses in their video. Or Culutural music from the country of the setting of the film . i.e. modern chineese pop?) Thankyou for reading this .
