Transformers director Michael Bay has commented on his official message board about the IMAX release and sequel:
“But I just saw the first IMAX print of ‘Transformers’. Not depressing – freakin AWESOME! They need to bottle the magic of IMAX because it’s the future of cinema.
“It comes out next Friday the 21st. I added some extra scenes.
“‘Transformers 2’, well that’s another story. Iching [sic] to work pre-strike (June) so I might jump ship and come back a year or so later cause people at the studio have been dragging for two months. Not sure why. I’ll keep you informed.”
“My only concern initially was that it’s another fantasy film [after Stardust], but it’s different in the sense that it’s a superhero film set in the world of fantasy. You’ve got Thor and Odin and it’s set in Asgard – it’s not going to be like Lord of the Rings or even Narnia. I think it’s important to keep it comic book. We’re not doing the Thor of Norse mythology. We’re doing the Marvel Thor.”
