“Transformers 6” to be Bumblebee Spinoff

It looks like everyone’s favorite vocally challenged yellow tin can is getting his own movie. According to the Hollywood Reporter, after the next installment of Transformers, Michael Bay will direct a Bumblebee spinoff. Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey told this to The Hollywood Reporter:

“There are characters in the Transformers universe that can be and should be made into their own movies. We will make the first movie with Michael and go right into a Bumblebee movie, which will be at a lower cost.”

Well, it only makes to give a spinoff to the only character that doesn’t actually talk.  Look, someone has to say it-Bumblebee is a pretty useless character in the films. The films try make us think we love him, but we really don’t. Bumblebee and Spike were beloved in the cartoon, because Spike was a kid, and the two were buddies. And Bumblebee actually frigging spoke. But without Spike, and without Bumblebee actually saying anything, he’s just a waste. So, Paramount, this is our suggestion- add Spike back in the mix for the spinoff, and fix Bumblebee’s voice box so he’s not speaking TV, and you’ve got yourself a film.


The Michael Bay directed Transformers 5 will be released on June 23, 2017, followed by the Bumblebee spinoff June 8, 2018., and and another yet to be determined stand-alone on June 28, 2019.
