The director also spoke about the negative outcry over Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which earned over $800 million worldwide but was lambasted by the critics and many fans.
"I'll take some of the criticism," says Bay, standing at a set built to resemble a dilapidated nuclear reactor. "It was very hard to put (the sequel) together that quickly after the writers' strike (of 2007-08)."
Bay also noted that this film, "builds to a final crescendo," and said that they removed the "dorky comedy." That aspect included the twin robots which were the root of much controversy in the film, with Bay adding the twins are, "basically gone" from Transformers 3.
