Back in May, unidentified insiders claimed that Transformers 4 director Michael Bay planned on bringing back the DinoBots, a staple of the 1980s animated Transformers TV series, into his action sequel which is currently in production. Star Mark Wahlberg recently addressed the rumors, which he did not confirm, but did not deny either. Here's what he had to say, while promoting his upcoming action-thriller 2 Guns, when asked if he had run across any DinoBots on the set.

"None of your business. You don't want me to get replaced halfway through production for divulging secrets."


That report from May revealed that the main villain is named Lockdown, who has a ship full of decommissioned Transformers including Grimlock and the rest of the Dinobots, and that Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will ride two of these Dinobots into a battle scene set in Hong Kong. None of this has been confirmed as of yet, but the actor's response certainly lends more credence to the report.

Plus, the actor revealed that this sequel feels like a whole new take on the franchise, and gave more details about his character.

"It feels like a completely different movie, very fresh. Obviously, it's a really interesting dynamic, being a young, single dad having a teenage daughter, trying to succeed as an inventor, having very little means and also trying to provide for my family. Then all hell breaks loose."

Transformers: Age of Extinction was released June 27th, 2014 and stars Nicola Peltz, Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, T.J. Miller, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Jack Reynor. The film is directed by Michael Bay.

    @rjh094 I knew they were going to be in Transformers 4 because if I am not mistaken, the Dinobots were originally supposed to be in Transformers 3, but then the 'Donobot story' was saved at some point just before they got started on Transformers 3 for Transformers 4 instead.
