    ... hasn't Hasbro always owned the brand, and wouldn't it take something catastrophic (like bankruptcy) to get it to where they didn't?

    Oh, good, now the movie can really impress me. Since I'm already expecting it to suck harder than AoE.

    Not sure. Yeah it says his name but for all we know they could just guessing. Either way even if he wasn't directing it,people are likely to bash TF5 anyway because Goldsman on board even though Batman and Robin happened two decades ago which by this time everyone know how bad it is that I doubt he'd pull that again with the Transformers.

    At least we dont have Ehren Kruger back, so we have a chance of this being better in term of storytelling.

    most be worth nothing that the only tf film that was generally liked was the one that Ehren Kruger did not wrote, the first movie. then it all went downhill for most people when they hired Kruger

    Akiva Goldsman....really? Sigh, I just, ugh. I don't think it can get worse then Orci & Kurtzman, but a lateral move is certainly possible.

    Doesnt matter who writes a script for the movie. Bay will just film whatever the hell he wants and get the writers to work around it.

    Jokes about Batman and Robin aside, Goldsman has written or produced a lot of quality films ever since Schwarzenegger bombarded us with horrible puns. I think the stigma of thst film follows him, just as it does Schumacher.

    Actually, I'd watch a Schumacher-directed Transformers film...

    @michaelbay: Re: directing TF5. No, it's not official. I have not committed to any idea as of yet. Just met with Steven and we are discussing.

    Wait, the dark, gritty, adult humor filled movies are having a cartoon spin off? That's just weird. Can't say I'm excited for TF5, especially if Bay does direct.

    An animated prequel for the live action movies... Fascinating. Could render all the prequel comics on Cybertron non-canon. It being animated is probably for the best though.

    And good to know that Transformers 5 is now on its way. Bay possibly returning... Mixed feelings.

    The prequel/interquel comics have a lot of continuity issues as well, so I'm curious how this might line up.

    Somehow Spielberg will convince him, he always does.

    I was expecting someone else to write the fifth film but I have to agree, this is an okay start.

    not really, most continuity issues the comics had were fixed by John Barber, especially in the prose novel he wrote in the DOTM adaptation issues, but i doubt they will awknowledge the prequels in this movie, but it would be a nice treat if they did
