Transformers 4 finally gets a plot, has good and bad guys


As Hubes put it so well, "Cue the Detroit jokes."

Now that Michael Bay is directing Trans4mers  and Marky Mark (sans Funky Bunch) is starring (with some other guy who's almost like Shia LaBeouf), it's time to get the ball rolling. Thanks to Bay needing permission from the Michigan Film Office to film in Detroit (land of the Ford, home of the Robocop), we've got a nifty plot synopsis regarding the direction of the new trilogy film:

As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues.

So what do you think? The plot is vague but has everything you expect. Good guys, bad guys, toy opportunities, and possible Unicron (the transforming planet guy). Now the funnest part is trying to figure out what Marky Mark is going to play. Is he one of the genius scientists? Is he an average man who gets caught in the crossfire? Will his Ford truck become a Transformer named Angus?
