Optimus Prime / Mark Wahlberg

Well, that was fast. Just after hearing yesterday that Michael Bay might have changed his mind about considering Mark Wahlberg for a role in Transformers 4 (it should really be called Trans4mers) after an Internet rumor pegged the Contraband and Ted star for the sequel, Paramount Pictures has confirmed that with a press release. The announcement simply says, "After an exceptionally successful collaboration on the upcoming Pain and Gain, Michael Bay has cast Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg in the highly anticipated Transformers 4." It doesn't get anymore official than that. Oh, and there's a new logo as well!

Here's the new logo for Michael Bay's Transformers 4 straight from Paramount Pictures:

Bay commented on the news saying, "Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on Pain and Gain and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers legacy." I'm sure Bay will reward Wahlberg with some supermodel co-star or extras on set. This is supposedly Bay's last outing with Transformers as a director before passing the baton to someone else, and this sequel will serve as more of a reboot with some of the robot characters carrying over, but not any of the humans. The film will hit theaters June 27th, 2014, stay tuned for more.

    Don't care.

    Oh nice...another logo geared towards the decepticons. Although there's no way this movie is going to involve the decepticons triumphing through the entire movie and then loosing by the end; cuz I mean that hasn't happened in the past three already. Right?

      I'm more curious who the hell is going to be leading the Cons, after the events of DOTM.
