Though production on Transfomers 4 has been underway for a little while now, we still don't have an idea of the official plot. The first photo from the studio was just released with Michael Bay looking a little more heroic than stars Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor. While we've seen some of the new Transformers that will be appearing in this film, rumors of Dinobots have been swirling, though there's been no confirmation or indication that those rumors are true. But yesterday, a photo from the set gave us a hint at the truth. No, one of the dinosaur Transformers wasn't caught on set, but the crew's production hat logo is interesting.
Here's the Transformers 4 hat a crew member was wearing in Chicago during filming (via Seibertron):
If you look at the logo, those certainly seem to be dinosaur claw marks, which would seem to confirm that Dinobots will come into play somehow. But that's not the only cool thing that was spotted on set. A resident of the Windy City also posted a picture of these propaganda posters that are part of the people's opposing campaigns to trust the Transformers or not. You can see some with "Remember Chicago" on them, clearly as a memorial to the aftermath of the attacks in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and some posters taking a cue from Barack Obama's famous campaign poster with either hope or hate for the Autobots. Look here:
Michael Bay is directing Transformers 4 as his last film in the blockbuster series before handing the franchise off to another director. No plot details are known yet, but Bay says, "We start four years later and there’s a reason why we’re meeting a new cast. We keep the 'Transformers' the way they were. It’s just four years later. There’s a reason the Transformers are redesigned. We’re trying to broaden the franchise and give it more places to go." The new cast includes Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and Li Bingbing and the film arrives on June 27th, 2014.
