I mentioned this in another thread, but figured I'd bring it up here. The Marvel Cinematic Universe consists of multiple film franchises, some of which are currently standalone, but the majority have at least two films, some with more and others confirmed to be getting more. These franchises often make reference to characters and events from the others, they generally culminate in big crossover events such as Civil War or the Avengers films, and they have been building up slowly to a huge crossover event with Infinity War. Transformers? Is a series of 5 films set to get a prequel focusing on one of the characters from the series. How the fuck is that a cinematic universe? I mean, if we were talking the Hasbro cinematic universe and they really put out the effort and tied in GI Joe, started doing films for their other properties and brought them together as they have in the comics, that'd be one thing. But Transformers cinematic universe would be like New Line calling the Nightmare on Elm Street series the Freddy Cinematic Universe or something. It's just a single ongoing series, not a universe.
