So let’s prepare the internets for the same sort of battle we saw with Transformers – with long-time, die-hard fans of the character railing against the live action film version and those who will think the movie version looks awesome.
Although I thought that for the most part Transformers stank, that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to movies about giant robots. Maybe they’ll get it right with Voltron: Defender of the Universe (the working title for the film) and actually have characters and a story that’s good, robots that don’t talk like 13 year olds and special effects that won’t give the audience a headache.
It’s not a done deal yet, but with the success of Bay’s movie I have no doubt this will get greenlit. The question will be how fast they can get it out the door and onto movie screens.
