Simon Furman Interviewed

Written by Big Bot on January 29, 2008 | Comics,Dreamwave,IDW Publishing,Interviews,Marvel,News,Titan |

TFW2005 have sat down with comic writer Simon Furman and discussed his work on Transformers comics, but also his views on the Transformers movie, and how he feels it should have been done.

TFW2005: (Further along the expanded universe angle) Are there any possibilities to seeing any stories from Transformers past or Transformers future that would have all new characters we have never seen before (no Optimus, no Megatron, no G1 homages, etc)?

Simon Furman: There’s always that potential I suppose, and we are going right back in time for The Thirteen, which features a (largely) new cast of characters we’ll be building from the ground up. Not sure about the future. I don’t really want to do an animated TF movie thing and scrap everything in favour of a new cast. There’s so much potential in the present day cast still to explore in new and different ways. That’s where my creative energies are focused right now.

Interview with Chris Ryall at Comic Book Resources

Written by Big Bot on January 18, 2008 | Comics,IDW Publishing,Interviews,News |

In an interview with IDW Publishing Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall, some news about future Transformers comic releases has been revealed including that a new Transformers; Evolutions titles is planned but with all the different continuities currently on offer, it will have to wait for a break.

Are there plans for more “Transformers: Evolutions” titles in the future?

There are talks, anyway. Between the animated movie, the ongoing TF comics we’ve been doing, the reprints of past companies’ stories, the movie continuity, and the upcoming new animated series books, I think that both Hasbro and I are wary of having too many more different continuities out there. But that said, the answer to the question is “yes.”

Tom DeSanto interview in Dreamwatch Magazine

Written by admin on October 11, 2007 | Interviews,News,Transformers movie (2007) |

Ain’t it cool news reports that Tom DeSanto has been bigging up the live action Transformers movie in an interview in Dreamwatch magazine. Check out the article here.

Some of the things Tom said

“There’s no better mythology to bring to the big screen than Transformers.
Transformers has got great characters and created an iconic world, and the
mythology still resonates with people 20 years after it was launched. Even
though they’re robots the characters have a lot of personality and a lot of
heart and people still care about them. That’s a great thing.”

“The plan with the movie is that it will combine live action with CGI.
I think it’s going to be something the audience has never seen before. In
all the years of movie-making, I don’t think the image of a truck transforming
into a 20-foot tall robot has ever been captured on screen. I also want to
make a film that’s a homage to 1980s movies and gets back to the sense of
wonder that Hollywood has lost over the years. It will have those Spielberg-ian
moments where you have the push-in on the wide-eyed kid and you feel like
you’re 10 years old even if you’re 35. That’s the energy I want to go for.”

“Just like with X-Men I want to get to the core of what makes Transformers
great. We’re going to get back to the heart of what Transformers is and distill
that into a movie.”
