Michael Bay releases the FIRST official logo for Transformers 4 and announces a new cast member, all in one fell swoop.
Ah, the beauty of the web. The first news of Mark Wahlberg being cast in Transformers 4 came via rumors that Michael Bay took action to deny, via his website.
OK, that’s happened before where he sees something that bugs him and he steps up and disses the site that blabbers on. In fact at times he’s been rather unapologetic about how he does it.
But then he later posted that the web rumors might have started some wheels turning in his head about casting Wahlberg. It seemed interesting and like I said when I reported it, it would be awesome for the franchise to have an actual action star in the next Transformers film.
Today on Michael Bay’s website, they did indeed announce the addition of Mark Wahlberg to the cast of Transformers 4. Now it’s officially very exciting news.
TF4 is scheduled to open in theaters on June 27th, 2014.
Oh, and the logo that’s the lead-in image here is the very first official artwork associated with the movie. The image below that’s been roaming the net is fan artwork, not an official poster. (It is cool, but you need to be aware of what it is.)
