OK, we know some of you love the new Transformers movies – Bayformers if you will – and some of you hate them (I love them and make no apology for it) and I know that opinions on Michael Bay vary just as widely, but this is a shocker…

Micheal Bay, who has just returned to Hong Kong to film more on Transformers: Age of Extinction was attacked, according to Superhero Hype, onset. According to a police spokeswoman: “two brothers approached Bay and demanded money, for what reason is unkown. As the discussion ensued, one of the brothers assaulted Bay and then fought three police officers that attempted to intervene.”

It appears that the younger of the two was arrested on “suspicion of blackmail and assault,” with the older brother being arrested for “suspicion of assault.”

Reports suggest that Bay was injured on the right side of his face but turned aay offers of help and immediately continued to film…

Say what you want about the man and his work, but we’re glad he’s ok…





Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
