Michael Bay Promises Megan Fox Will Be Back in Transformers 3
Yes, I know you're trying to forget about Transformers 2, and this isn't helping. If you followed the big back-n-forth between Michael Bay and Megan Fox earlier this year, you might've been left wondering if she would actually return, considering it seemed the two were not on good terms. However, Bay talked to USA Today at the recent Victoria's Secret show (he directed some of their commercials) and he's not mad at her after all. "I love her," Bay said. "It's just, she's young. Everyone's got to give her a break, she's only… 23? It's just hard. I've traveled around the world with her and she's just like this world symbol now, ya know?"
Uh, right, we know, but thanks for clarifying. But that's not all. For better or worse, he also confirms she's set to return in Transformers 3, which he's already been working on since its due out in July 2011.
He also said, "She's got a great part in Transformers 3," and he said he's currently working on the script. So Bay's not planning on getting revenge by, say, killing her off? "No, no. no," he said, dismissing it. "She gets enough of that already."
That's both amusing and depressing all at the same time. I don't want to start making comparisons like this, but one of the reasons why I think The Dark Knight was as brilliant as it was is because Christopher Nolan had enough balls to (spoiler!) kill off the female love interest in his movie. Bay may now consider adding that into the story (why not?), which might not be a bad idea. I'd rather see something like that happen to Mikaela than have them continue to leave plot holes left and right and ruin another sequel. And it might up the ante in a big way. And no, temporarily killing Optimus in Revenge of the Fallen isn't the same either!
