ROTB was supposed to be a direct sequel to Bumblebee. But here it states we will see how optimus becomes the leader we see within the bayverse, which would mean bumblebee and this film happen within the bayverse. Im wanting clarification of whether or not bumblebee and ROTB r a part of the bayverse. If they r, then they really r just saying fuck continuity in the films at this point, so they may aswell keep bumblebee and ROTB as a rebooted franchise. But it seems like even the directors dont entirely know where the films r suppose to be set, this was fully confirmed by travis knight. Id like to know if this director knows where the film takes place as far as being a bumblebee sequel or part of the bayverse, and whether or not they've made the final decision to reboot the franchise or try to fix the bayverse which is unfixable, especially with the lore established in bumblebee, such as the autobots 80s arrival, and their overall appearance.
