Megan Fox's departure from the Transformers franchise after the second film, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," was attributed to a combination of factors, including her public criticism of director Michael Bay and her desire to pursue other acting opportunities.


Why did Megan Fox stop being in Transformers?

In a 2009 interview with Wonderland magazine,Why Did Megan Fox Leave Transformers 3? Articles Fox compared Bay's directing style to that of Hitler, saying, "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for." These comments caused a rift between Fox and Bay, and she was subsequently fired from the third film in the series, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon."

In addition to her conflict with Bay, Fox also expressed a desire to move on from the Transformers franchise and explore other acting roles. She had previously expressed frustration with the films' focus on action and special effects, and she felt that her character, Mikaela Banes, was not being given enough depth or development.

Fox's decision to leave the Transformers franchise was ultimately a personal one, and she has never publicly regretted it. She has continued to work steadily in Hollywood, appearing in a number of films and television shows.

In a 2011 interview with GQ, Bay admitted that he regretted firing Fox, saying, "I was hurt. And I was angry. And I made a mistake when I fired her." However, he also defended his directing style, saying, "I don't like confrontation. But when something has to be done, I do it. And I don't care if it's a movie star or an extra. If you're not doing your job, I'll take you off the movie."

It is unclear whether Fox would ever return to the Transformers franchise. However, she has said that she is open to the possibility, saying, "I would never say never. I'm a big fan of the Transformers franchise, and I think it would be fun to be a part of it again."

Only time will tell whether Fox will ever reprise her role as Mikaela Banes. However, her departure from the Transformers franchise was a significant moment in the history of the series, and it is sure to be debated for years to come.
