Well hopefully he will stay away from the franchise. Leave it to the likes of Del Toro. Bay's action sequence shots are way to close, he thinks he is portraying the scene as if you where right in the middle of it, but all it ends up doing is looking like a blurry mess with no background to frame the scene.

That would be the worst combination ever. Evangelion is a wholly psychological series reliant on subtlety, symbolism, and implication. Whereas Michael Bay's style is entirely focused on direct, superficial action and thrillride special effects, with little overall substance.

Giant robots aside, there is literally nothing the two have in common.

If giant robots were all it took.... just imagine the sort of reaction a micheal bay directing a gundam anime/movie would get? Needless to say I'd cry for days without stop.

Some stuff just doesn't need to be given a live movie treatment. Evangelion, Akira etc are PERFECT just the way they are. Hollywood stay the ef away from them!
