Fox did not go back to the “Transformers” franchise in large part as a result of she made some problematic feedback about her director at the first two motion pictures, Michael Bay. The ones feedback got here in a 2009 Wonderland interview, with the actor making damning claims about Bay’s onset antics, “He desires to be like Hitler on his units, and he’s. So he is a nightmare to paintings for.” Harsh phrases apart, Fox in truth adopted the ones claims with a couple of much less biting feedback, “however whilst you get him clear of set, and he isn’t in director mode, I more or less in reality revel in his persona as a result of he is so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social talents in any respect. And it is endearing to watch him.”
Obviously, Megan Fox had some authentic affection for her “Transformers” director, however the ones “Hitler” feedback had been unquestionably a troublesome tablet to swallow for Bay. Much more so for “Transformers” manufacturer Steven Spielberg who, in accordance to Bay’s 2011 GQ interview (as coated by way of Closing date), used to be so incensed at Fox’s feedback, he promptly had Bay fireplace her from the franchise, “And you recognize, the Hitler factor. Steven [Spielberg] mentioned, ‘Fireplace her at the moment.'” Bay infamously did as he used to be instructed, although he clearly did not harbor an excessive amount of ill-will towards Fox, casting her as April O’neil a couple of years later in his giant finances “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle” adaptation. It is worth noting, after all, that Bay used to be best operating as a manufacturer on that movie.
