Michael Bay: ‘Age of Extinction’ Will Launch New ‘Transformers’ Trilogy

Ready or not, here it comes.

Transformers: Age of Extinction, Michael Bay’s next film about the robots in disguise, is intended to be the first film in a new Transformers trilogy. That’s the word from Bay himself.

“It’s kind of like a new Transformers,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next one.”

It’s an interesting development, as the director originally intended to leave the Transformers films behind after 2011’s Dark of the Moon. Bay says he won’t “necessarily” direct the fifth and sixth Transformers films, but that’s a softer stance than he’s issued in the past.

In other Transformers news, a -new Age of Extinction TV spot has premiered. Check out the Autobot action and Decepticon destruction in the teaser below:

Transformers: Age of Extinction, starring Mark Wahlberg, hits theaters on June 27.
