Transformers 4: Michael Bay Says It Will Be His Last

In what may sound like a bit of "I've heard this before" news, director, Michael Bay has announced that the upcoming fourth film he's helming in the Transformers franchise will indeed be his last.

While discussing the new $100 million Transformers-themed 3D ride at Universal Studios Hollywood, Bay briefly touched on some tidbits for the fourth film. In an interview with the LA Times' Hero Complex, Bay reveals that part 4 will "include some redesign of the robots and an entirely new cast."

Just as he did during the promotional phase for last year's Dark of the Moon, Bay states that this will be his last film in the franchise. However, this time, he also implies that with this film, he will be setting the franchise up "for the next guy."

It certainly opens a lot of possibilities to see Bay hand-off the baton of the Transformers franchise with an all-new cast and redesigned bots to someone else.

X-Men: First Class Sequel Is Days Of Future Past?

Possible news regarding the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel may have surfaced. Could the film be ready to tackle one of the X-Men mythos' most iconic stories involving alternate timelines?

According to a report from Ain't It Cool News, the MPAA Title Registration Bureau just registered the title, Days of Future Past; a name that will ring familiar with anyone who's acquainted with X-Men comics from the early 80's during the magical Chris Claremont/John Byrne era.

While nothing has been confirmed, the possibility does exist that the First Class sequel could be tackling the storyline in which the assassination of anti-mutant senator, Robert Kelly (who some may remember was played by Bruce Davison in the 2000 X-Men film,) sets off a chain reaction that leads to a dystopian future in which mutants are hunted to near extinction by the giant robot Sentinels.

Could this be in store for director Matthew Vaughn's next entry into the mutant movieverse?

Nowadays, you can't swing a dead cat without mincing a bird in its propellers.

Some people just bury or cremate their beloved pets. This guy, however, decided to do the next best thing: Turn it into a freaking helicopter!

The late cat, Orville, (named, appropriately enough, after one of the Wright brothers,) would become the Orvillecopter! Scourge of the skies...and cows everywhere.

Little Robot Jumps Up Buildings

Baxter
Posted March 28, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

If you thought that Superman was the only individual able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, then think again.

This little robot, called the Sand Flea, is here to slap us out of our fixation on the zombie apocalypse and remind us that in the year 2012, robots remain the safest bet for our imminent destruction.

Potential Names For Android's Next OS

In the wake of the Apple iOS5 release, Android has announced news of their own: Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest OS version that offers a range of cool features like flexible widgets, data usage management, the People App and so much more. But hold on. Is this OS really called "Ice Cream Sandwich"?

It's true! Google is known for naming their Android products after desserts in alphabetical order--which explains where the ice cream sandwich comes in--but they won't say why. Who cares "why" because isn't the answer obvious? Desserts are the best thing ever. So we want to ask, WHAT'S NEXT? 

We thought we'd let our mouths water by coming up with the names for Android's future OS releases. Check it out after the jump.

Is this what The Voice is going to be like in the future when the robots take over?

Superman: Man Of Steel: NO Viggo Mortensen As Zod; Who's The Villain, Then?

The idea of Viggo Mortensen being lined-up for the role of General Zod in 2012's Superman: Man of Steel has been verified as false. In an interview with Latino Review, essentially hitting the rumor with a proverbial giant translucent Superman "S" symbol, director Zack Snyder (normally mum on most aspects of this project,) declared with definitive certainty that "Viggo is not going to be in the movie let’s say that right now. I can clear that up."

So, the much-discussed pool of candidates for the villain's slot to face new Superman Henry Cavill may still be open, and the speculation will likely return to full swing. While Snyder, who is currently preoccupied with this weekend's release of Sucker Punch, has been pretty frugal with details, conversely, he's been very open about his broader ambitions for the film. Take a look below to see his latest pitch to the fans.

Forget CES, Sagging Pants Invention Will Revolutionize Universe

Let's face it. As youths of the 21st Century, we like to wear our pants around our ankles. It's just a fact of life. However, unless you're a homeless person or a pop star, it can be unseemly to be walking the streets with your pants on the ground. That's what makes Andrew Lewis, an inventor from Harlem, the odds-on favorite to take the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011, with his invention that allows you to wear the fashionable sag, without looking like an idiot.

The invention, called "Subs," functions a little like suspenders and a garter belt combined, allowing you to show the world your boxers without having to keep pulling them up. "What?" I can year you saying right now, "don't they have a belt for just such a purpose?" Silly, silly reader. Belts keep your pants around your waist. What is this, the 1890's? Get with the times, satchmo. You're no one who's anyone without showing everyone what choice you make in underwear on a daily basis!

So, we might be looking toward the future with this week's CES 2011 coverage, with talk of robots and lasers and all of that useless crap, but this, friends, this invention is the real news of the new decade, and we're going to have to go a long way to top it.
