Titus Welliver, whom you might all remember as the ‘Man in Black’ from the hit television show LOST, has spoken up about the nature of the forth installment of the live action Transformers franchise: “Age of Extinction.” Welliver informed Nerdist that the latest Transformers movie will not be a children’s movie, it will be “darker” and “more mature.” Additionally, Welliver gloated that he now has some “cool dad cred” with his kids, saying “I’ve now won the hard earned respect of my children because I’m in a Transformers film”

Director Michael Bay has said in the past that Transformers 4 would be a “redesign” of the franchise. “I thought I was done” Bay told the Huffington Post in September of 2012, “someone could come in here and screw it up, you know? So I’m thinking that if I do this last one, we set it on a new footing, we change a lot of things — but we keep the history of the three in place. But we broaden it so it can be set up and be carried on — it would have a better chance for survival.”
