It seems we will never stop getting new Transformers movies. In which case, there is more than enough room for them get to an idea I had years ago.
Move the Transformers away from the Autobot/Decepticon split, and toward a multi-clan split based on vehicle type and function.
So planes of both sides would band together, and cars, seacraft, spacecraft, animal-based, and so on.
It would offer a great opportunity to explore themes of likeness and difference, racism, shifting and conflicting loyalties, and so much more. More intrigue, more conflict, more character growth, and more of a chance to address ever-timely themes that would elevate the movies above what they’ve always been content to be.
Anyone connected to @MichealBay and company, please pass this along. 🙂
