"Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures have set a July 4, 2012 release date for Transformers 3.
Transformers opened July 2, 2007; Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen debuts on June 24, 2009.
Paramount also has moved up the release of Marvel Studios' Thor from June 17, 2011 to May 20, 2011. This move sets the release for Thor just two weeks after Spider-Man 4 opens on May 6, 2011."
Apparently the first time this message was sent Michael Bay got extremely angry and sent Paramount Pictures this message:
"UPDATE: Michael Bay has posted a message on his forums which indicates that he meant for Paramount to schedule the third film for 2012, not 2011!
I said I was taking off a year from Transformers. Paramount made a mistake in dating Transformers 3 - they asked me on the phone - I said yes to July 4 - but for 2012 - whoops! Not 2011!!! That would mean I would have to start prep in September. No way. My brain needs a break from fighting robots. -- Michael"
I already can't wait for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and now I know when Transformers 3's coming out and that Micheal Bay confirms he's doing it -- to quote Syndrome from The Incredibles, "Oh, man! I'm still geeking out about it!"
