    He certainly said it, I remember as well. But, in all fairness, he said it like 10 years ago and as we saw with the 3D format, the man can change his mind. At first, Bay was very skeptical of 3D, but (thanks to a few chats with James Cameron) he became one of the biggest supporters of that format.

    So if this information is more than just an internet rumor, maybe he saw something in that superhero project that he liked. Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of comicbook/superhero movies, but hey, if that's what Bay wants to do, let him do it.



    P.S. Marvel's Kevin Feige said a few years back that they would love it if Bay directs one of their comicbook movies. I guess the competition won thе "battle for Bay" : )

    Actually he said it at the set of TF5 a year ago. Though I wanna see more original movies from him, yeah he can change his mind.

    THR OCTOBER 23, 2017:
    Michael Bay's 'Dora the Explorer' (Exclusive)

    Nick Stoller, the writer-director behind films including The Muppetsand Neighbors, has been brought on board to work on the script for the project, which will be produced by Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. It hails from Paramount's new Paramount Players division.

    The move kick-starts a project that had been inactive for some time. In 2015, Paramount had been developing a movie with Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) writing and Mary Parent producing.

    Details are being kept under wraps, but the live-action take is said to center on Dora, not as a 7-year-old like on the TV series but now a teenager who moves to the city live with her cousin Diego.

    No release date has been set, but the studio is gung ho on Doraand is eying a 2019 bow.

    Dora the Explorer was a series that proved to be a massive hit for Nickelodeon, running from 2000-2014 with 172 episodes aired. It centered on an young American Latina who, along with her monkey, Boots, faced riddles and characters like a thieving fox named Swiper as she went on quests.

    The show translated worldwide, produced merchandising ranging from Legos to video games and even saw stage shows.

    Platinum Dunes has a first-look deal with Paramount which has spawned the hit Transformers and Ninja Turtle movies.

    While Stoller has written more adult-skewing film fare, such as Get Him to the Greek and Neighbors, he has shown a strong affinity for all-ages subject matter with reboots of the Muppet movies and animated films Storksand Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. He currently has Night School, a comedy that he wrote, filming with Kevin Hart starring.

    Stoller is repped by UTA and Ziffren Brittenham.
