Transformers 4 set to take place four years after Dark of the Moon

Now that I think about it, there are actually two pieces of news bundled up in one package here.  The first is that the plot of TRANSFORMERS 4 is currently set to take place a whole four years after the last movie in the franchise, while the second is that TRANSFORMERS 4 is actively part of the same cinematic continuity as the previous trilogy.  That may have been obvious by the "4" in the title, but I don't think it had yet been established just how closely the movies would be connected.  And now, with the following comment from Michael Bay, we kind of sort of maybe know.  Ish. 

"The movie is going to continue four years from the attack on Chicago, which was in the last movie. It's going to have the same lineage, but it's going in a full new direction. It actually feels very natural how it's going in that direction... We're doing a lot of things that are really going to make it fresh and feel new."

For you Transformers super fans out there, just where exactly would Bay have to take the characters and world to really "make it fresh and feel new?" And what, if any, terrible fate do you hope is used to explain away Sam Witwicky's absence?

TRANSFORMERS 4 is gearing up to begin production with Mark Wahlberg in the spring of 2013, the hope being to hit a release date of June 27, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: On a scale of "this is pretty f**king serious" to "oh shit the world is ending through death by giant robot," how serious do you think the discussions were about titling the movie TRANS4MERS?

Optimus Prime's Death

Transformers 4 should be written with the death of Optimus Prime in mind and him passing the Allspark to Rodimus, so that it paves a new direction for the fifth installment.

Trust is not a word I associate with Michael Bay.

Trans....yawn....mers 4 might be better than the previous three films, but I remember when Bay apologized for "Revenge of The Fallen" and promised huge improvements and expectations with "Dark of The Moon". With that I rest my case.

Shouldn't it be written as TR4NSFORMERS? I read TRANSF4RMERS as... well, Transfarmers. Which, i imagine would be about alien robotic farming machines do battle with evil mutated live stocks.

i think if any discussions were had, they stopped as soon as someone brought in the box office receipts for SCRE4M

I enjoyed Transformers 1 & 3 but throughout the trilogy I felt that
a) Megatron became one of the worst villains - absolutely not frightening, zero characteristics
b) Optimus became the worst hero - in TF3, he acted without any emotion, without anything that separates him from a toaster. I could root for WALL-E, T-800, Johnny 5, but not for Optimus.

Extra tidbit: Haha, I hope they just calling it Transformers 4 or Transformers: With whatever they're going to call the movie. However, it's strangely odd that the logo is Decepticon's emblem. Could it mean that Decepticon will have more roles in the movie??
