Submitted by on November 8, 2012 – 11:00 am Comments

Recently there was rumor floating around that Mark Whalberg might be a part of ‘Transformer 4’, which had all his fans excited. But, Michael Bay came out and denied the rumors. Well, there might yet be some good news in the offing for fans of Mark Whalberg.

Turns out Bay gave the internet rumors some thought and was quoted as saying “I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Wahlberg. Mark was rumored to be starring in Transformers 4. We are working on another movie together, not T4. I had such a great time working with Mark on Pain And Gain, and he gave such a great performance,” continues Bay, “let’s say that very internet chatter gave me some ideas. We are at the inception of our story process right now on T4. Let’s say some ideas are gaining traction with me and my writer – so I’m here to say thanks to internet chatter”.

If Whalberg actually ends up being a part of the film, it would be probably be the first time that someone impressed with the idea behind a rumor, turned it into a reality. Many would take Bay’s quote as hint that he is seriously considering Whalberg for a role in Transformers 4, but it would be a mistake to be too optimistic till Bay officially announces something. Also, it would be interesting to see what role Whalberg is given, if Bay decides he would be a part of the film. Surely, he would have to be given a very substantial part in the film, for him to accept it.

‘Transformers 4’ is scheduled to be released in June 27, 2014. Michael Bay will return to direct and produce the film, while Ehren Kruger will pen the script. The film will reportedly be a darker sequel to Transformers: Dark of the Moon with a storyline that revolves around a new cast of characters. It is rumored that the lead for the film will be female, with a male counterpart, setting itself apart from the three previous films in which Shia LeBeouf had featured in the lead role. Incidentally, LeBeouf has not been cast for the film, which leaves the door open for someone like Whalberg to be cast.
