    Also it should be noted that David Ellison was so disgusted with the Snake Eyes box office that he refused to sign a new deal with Paramount for his production company Skydance. Skydance moved to Apple instead and they’d been partners with Paramount for decades.

    If Universal uses the jurassic formula.
    All the hype will be on megatron as the TF franchise t-rex. Just for him to show up at the last minutes of every movie to shout at the camera.

    This, and the fact(s) that Walt Disney isn't only infamously known to relatively abandon franchises when they personally feel said franchise(s) didn't meet their expectations overall, and is also primarily known to systemically self-sabotaging themselves and others if they don't get their way altogether either.

    Based on how well they've done the Monsterverse, I'll go with Legendary.

    Well, given Top Gun: Maverick's buzz, the next step is clear: Transformers should stay with Paramount and Joseph Kosinski should direct the next mainline entry (if he wants).

    I think he was considered for a Transformers movie at some point, too. Which one specifically, no idea.

    Not Disney. Definitely not Disney.

    The only thing that makes sense to me, is Universal since the Universal Studios parks already have a Transformers based ride.

    Why? You might be the only person in support of the mouse getting another franchise.

    No, I say Disney too.
    They seem to have a better track record of making and keeping franchises with financial and critical success, at least compared to other franchises.

    They already own the world, we don’t need more franchises falling into the House of Mouse.

    Well technically, AT&T, Comcast, or Sony are closer to owning the world since any one of those companies are bigger than Disney. And that's not even mentioning juggernauts like Walmart or Amazon.

    Whatever man, my comment was in jest. I know there’s bigger corps then Disney. No need for a trivial lesson.
