I dont necessarily like the movies as a whole. TF1 was ok, ROTF is the worst film of all time and DOTM was the best of the 3. Here's how I would go on to a possible 4th:
Dinobots would be introduced early in the movie by crashing into a museum of natural history...
Everything is going great for the Autobots, Sam and whatsherface. Bring back some loose threads in the Twins, maybe a Wheelsnake or two. Blah blah blah, Optimus goes crazy and completely annihilates (at least the Twins). He loses control of his own mind and becomes a slave to a viral infection. One that was placed there by... Jolt!
Jolt was a traitor all along and implanted the slaving protocols into Optimus when he combined him with Jetfire!
The other thread of the movie is McKaela. Turns out she didn't willingly break it off with Sam. Someone jacked her brain too! So now Sam has to save both her and Optimus, while wrestling his feelings for McKaela, with whatshername still being involved.
And with so many Earth-born Decepticons (from TF1, Megatron's hatchlings) they all look to McKaela as a leader. Of course the Cons from Cybertron and deep space don't like that, and theres a civil war on Earth.
Long story short: Bumblebee, Ratchet, the Twins, maybe Top Spin and a few other characters all die. Optimus dies mid-way for good because theres no other way to stop him and blah blah blah, later Bumblebee is revived with the matrix as the next Prime and sets shit straight. The calvary will arrive to save the day in the form of Omega Supreme, Hot Rod, Ultra Magnus, Hound and the Aerialbots.
If there would be a 5, I would leave McKaela brain washed. If not, then kill her off. And if there was a 5 I would think of some way to bring characters back and bring back Jazz, Ironhide and probably Megatron just to do a for serious Optimus v Megatron battle. Come to think of it, 5 would be Unicron.
