Trans4mers Rumors: No Reboot, Second Trilogy, Jason Statham?

{mosimage} The third Transformers movie just came out, but with the news of director Michael bay and actor Shia LaBeouf not returning to the franchise, quite a few rumors regarding the future of the Transformers movies are swirling.

The first bit comes straight from Don Murphy himself. He posted the following on his message boards, suggesting that we may not be seeing a reboot, but instead a second trilogy following the same group of Transformers:

What happens next? Certainly not a reboot. We haven't lost the Transformers. They didn't grow up or become expensive like Toby Maguire. I don't know what happens next. I'm pretty sure there will be a second trilogy. I am pretty sure it will kick ass. And I am pretty sure some of you will hate it because it wasn't all bots.
