If a Google-translated interview between Transformers 4 producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Beijing News is to be believed, then the Dinobots will be appearing in the untitled sequel.  Directed by Michael Bay, the newest installment in the Transformers franchise features newcomers Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor, alongside veterans Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer.  Chinese actress Bingbing Li also stars and likely adds some increased interest to the overseas box office.  The untitled Transformers film opens June 27, 2014.

Hit the jump to see what di Bonaventura said (which was then poorly translated), and click here for the first poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction.

transformers-dinobots-hasbroIn an interview with Beijing News (translated by this Transformers fan site), di Bonaventura seems to confirm the appearance of the Dinobots in the new film:

Beijing News: Allegedly this will add five Dinobots role? (Squad leader rex “cable” Triceratops “iron slag” Brontosaurus “mud” Stegosaurus “Howl” pterodactyl “darts”)

Lorenzo: I can not disclose the specifics, but it can be sure that the machine will give the audience join the dinosaurs bring new excitement. After seeing the film the audience will find that this will be a greater integration of various aspects, such as the previously separate human and car people will do with integration.

While Google clearly still has some work to do in the translation department, at least we can be sure that the machine will give the audience join the dinosaurs bring new excitement.  It’s not exactly an officially-stamped confirmation, but since his statement comes on the heels of a leaked call sheet and on-set photos that suggested the prehistoric bots would indeed be making an appearance.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Dinobots (via Wikipedia):

The Dinobots are a group of Transformers, part of the Autobot faction. Their origins and abilities vary from one version of Transformers to the next, but they are generally depicted as powerful Autobots capable of sustaining heavy damage and wielding heavy firepower against their foes. They are the only known Autobot group capable of flight in robot mode, a trait they share with the Decepticons. They are always portrayed as fiercely independent, and are prone to diverge from the main group of Autobots to pursue their own agenda.

    So Micheal Bay was sitting around and said aloud, “What else can I F—ing ruin?”

    I can’t wait to see him ruin Unicron.

    • Kpaqu1

      How exactly can you ruin a half-hour toy advertisement? Your unrealistic nostalgia memories are showing.

      • tertiaryintervention

        Shut up idiot. And cram that cynical BS up your ass while you’re at it.

      • Kpaqu1

        Did you miss your therapy session this week?

      • tertiaryintervention

        No you missed your meds you obnoxious twat. You’re on a site that is full of nothing but fans tv and movies, including the writers of the site. Clearly the fans of show specific franchises come here to talk about the things they like.

        Then you show up trying to be Joe-fucking-cool looking down on people who actually care about the movies and tv shows or performers. All you’ve come here to do is be bitch number one and try to piss on everyone’s parade.

        Unless… are you Michael Bay? Did I hurt your feelings Michael? You must be Michael Bay, you both seem to have similar thoughts on the franchise.

      • Kpaqu1

        Seriously, there’s something wrong with you. Seek proper help.

      • tertiaryintervention

        Michael Bay pls go.

      • Kpaqu1

        Psychological help. Get some.

      • tertiaryintervention

        Calling some crazy is a cheap trick Michael Bay. You need to stop putting testicles on robots.

      • Kpaqu1

        Perhaps a change in medication?

      • tertiaryintervention

        That’s all you’ve got. Nothing. MMM. Feels so good, being so right.

      • Kpaqu1

        Self help books are cheap as well.

      • tertiaryintervention

        Keep trying! I believe in you Michael Bay!

      • Kpaqu1

        I’m just concerned for your welfare.

      • tertiaryintervention

        Oh the tryhard is strong with this one. You can do it Michael Bay!

  • Strong Enough

    Can’t you just type Bingbing in the cast line instead of singling her out because of her race? I mean she is a human and an actor right?

    • Tey

      She might not even appear in the U.S version.

    • Tey

    • tertiaryintervention

      This guy is right. Saying her name and her race is redundant. Good call Strong Enough for pointing out how Chinese her name sounds.

      • Strong Enough

        hey i didn’t name her

      • tertiaryintervention

        Hahaha!

  • Convoy

  • Pk

    I didn’t know mark wahlberg is making his acting debut in this movie?

  • funkdawg

    I assume they will time travel or show a time when Autobots and Decepticons were on earth during the dinosaur age.
    How else are they going to be able to scan a form to change into a dinosaur?
