Mark Wahlberg In The New 'Transformers' Movie - Yea Or Nay?

Mark Wahlberg's casting in "Transformers 4"--confirming rumors that were denied last week--raises many new questions about the future of the "Transformers" franchise. Will he inject some much-needed machismo and maturity into the proceedings? NextMovie writer Scott Harris thinks so, saying Wahlberg will be "more adult and more mature with the material." And our own editor Valerie Gallaher adds, "It'll keep this franchise fresh."

But what do you guys think? Is this the right move for the blockbuster series? Will this freshen the starting-to-stale bot-on-bot mayhem? Will Mark's Whalberg-ness top LaBeuf's Shia-bility? Should I stop turning these guys' names into stupid jokes?
