Michael Bay Will Never Direct A Superhero Film: ‘I’ve Gotta Do My Own Thing’

Well known for his big budget spectacle films, “Transformers” director Michael Bay shares why fans shouldn’t expect to see him helm a superhero film.

“I really liked ‘Civil War’,” Bay tells Collider. “I like a lot of the Marvel movies,” he adds.

“When I saw ‘Iron Man’ it broke a lot of new ground for me, and it was a great character. Funny, witty, I like that about it.”

Wondering where the MCU will go following “Captain America: Civil War”, the director says he doesn’t want to come into a world that’s already formed.

Explaining he would rather create the world himself, Bay maintains he’s “gotta do [his] own thing” explaining, “I don’t ever wanna take…¬†like a third of something or a second of something.”

“The most fun is when a real director creates the world,” he says. “You know, you talk to Ridley Scott, one of our favourite things to do is to create the world. Steven Spielberg, create the world. That’s what it’s all about.”
