The upcoming fourth “Transformers” blockbuster, but unlike the franchise itself, the Transformers seem to be facing extinction.

According to Deadline, the film has officially been dubbed “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

The spoilery title lends credence to the rumors that the Mark Wahlberg-led reboot will feature the Dinobots, which according to MTV News are “characters who change into robotic dinosaurs as opposed to vehicles.

Though Wahlberg got cagey when asked by MTV about the Dinobots, saying he didn’t want “to get replaced halfway through production for divulging secrets,” this news seems to all but confirm their presence.

The actor added that his character, a single dad, will also offer up a different element to the long-running franchise as it kickstarts a new saga without former lead Shia LaBeouf.

“Transformers: Age of Extinction” is due out on June 27, 2014. What do you think of this twist on the franchise? Let us know in the comments!
