Mark Wahlberg MIGHT be in Transformers 4 after all…

— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony


Not long ago there was a rumor that Michael Bay had such a good time working with Mark Wahlberg that he invited him to star in the Transformers franchise in the next entry tentatively titled “Transformers 4″, up until Michael Bay shot those rumors down and said that they were only discussing collaborations not named Transformers. Well I guess the idea inspired Bay to reconsider as he’s now taking a different stance and says that the rumors sparked some interesting ideas…

I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Walhberg. Mark was rumored to be staring in Transformers 4. We are working on another movie together, not T4. I had such a great time working with Mark on Pain and Gain, and he gave such a great performance – well let’s say that very internet chatter gave me some ideas. We are at the inception of our story process right now on T4. Let’s say some ideas are gaining traction with me and my writer – so I’m here to say thanks internet chatter.

I actually really like the idea of Marky Mark in Transformers. I know I might be in the minority here and people are hyper critical about the way Bay handles stories about sentient alien machines interacting with one another but I like this idea and think he would be a very suitable star to fill the shoes of Shia LeBouf’s Sam Witwicky. He’s no Jason Statham, but he’ll do.  We’ll see how things develop from here…


That’s all for now…

    Mark has always impressed me as an actor. As long as I dont have to think of him as a scientist he will be fine. Action and funny he can do and that would be perfect for this movie.

"People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy, and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man, I’m flesh and blood; I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol… as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting."

—Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman from Batman Begins, 2005
