'Transformers 4': Check out the new title and hints about the movie's new characters
'Transformers 4' recently got a full title and a hint from the producer about new characters in the film.

Of the the three, I personally find “Age of Extinction” to be the most likely. The fact that Bay has repeatedly made it clear that TF4 is a new beginning makes “Apocalypse” or “Last Stand” feel a bit off the mark – with “Last Stand” seeming particularly troublesome, given its proximity to that similarly-titled Arnold Schwarzenegger comeback vehicle that flopped at the box office early this year. Of course, there is another factor to consider: The Dinobots.Skip to next paragraph
Screen Rant had a humble start back in 2003 as a place to rant about some of the dumber stuff related to the movie industry. Since then, the site has grown to cover more and more TV and movie news (and not just the dumb stuff) along with sometimes controversial movie reviews. The goal at Screen Rant is to cover stories and review movies from a middle ground/average person perspective.

We’ve heard continued rumors and speculation that the Dinobots will make a major appearance in TF4 - and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently added major fuel to that fire when he told Beijing News the following when discussing China’s role in the movie:
“I can not disclose the specifics, but you can be sure that the joining of the Dinobots will give the audience new excitement. In addition to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, the appearance of these classic roles changed, today the world’s coolest, most exciting cars will appear in the film, including China’s vehicles, whether you are a car enthusiast, you will feast your eyes and be shocked by them.”
Is that confirmation that the Dinobots are in the film? Certainly sounds like it. Others are also pointing to some recent set photos (SEE them HERE) which have the production crew sporting hats with TF4 logos – logos which seem to have claw marks in them, presumably teasing the Dinobots’ appearance. Given all that evidence that Dinobots will be in the film – and leaked alleged plot spoilers that fit in line with the clues we’ve seen so far – it seems that “Age of Extinction” would be a most fitting title for two reasons:
- “Age of Extinction” could refer to a history involving the Dinobots (who would be resurrected from long dormancy or death).
- The subtitle could also refer to the rumored deaths/transformations that certain characters (like Megatron) could go through – a “changing of the guard” for the franchise.
Resident Evil already has its “Apocalypse” and Schwarzenegger already has his “Last Stand” – so when the dust settles and official confirmation is out, don’t be surprised if “Transformers: Age of Extinction” is soon covering billboards and TV screens in your area.
