    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.

    The article you’re talking about mentioned both Bayverse and G1 when describing the type of leader Optimus would grow into. They are merely a reference. Furthermore, that wasn’t a quote from the director, but merely something suggested by the writer of the article.

    This is very much a sequel to Bumblebee and it is currently still unknown how/if this is related to Bayverse.

    Although God knows Lorenzo di Bonaventura wants it all to be the same continuity.

    Fingers crossed the movie will fully establish this as a separate continuity!

    I believe it could be something just like TFP having both Cybertron games and the aligned books as the aligned Continuity

    That part isn't. It was mentioned by the writer himself.

    The person who was pretending to be one of the writers in another thread was fake.

    His Twitter links to his professional page and his email so it'd be a weird thing to lie about unless he wanted to jeopardize his career.

    I have a feeling this whole thing is supposed to be a satire.

    "One writer for every act?" Since when do movies have four acts? Feels like he's making fun of the awkward structure these movies tend to have.

    The guy he tagged in his post (Sammy Paul) calls himself an "award-losing filmmaker".

    All of this guy's links seem to lead to music-related stuff, not filmmaking or screenwriting...I can't find any evidence that this guy is even associated with writing for movies.

    And it's super weird that the 'faker' joined TFW2005 at the exact same time this guy announced this on Twitter. That timing was too perfect. It feels like this guy denied that the TFW account was him when he started getting called out (possibly to maintain credibility on Twitter).

    Oh, and Sammy Paul has several posts from the past making fun of Transformers.

    To me it just feels like these guys (probably buddies) are goofing off and messing with Transformers fans.

    This was my thought too. No disrespect to the guy, that's really cool if it is true, but it just seemed a little odd to me...

    Anybody else think the Terrorcons are poachers hunting the BW characters, forcing them into hiding and the reason why the Maximals and Predacons haven\'t killed each other by the 1990s?

    No matter what it's called, I will always read ROTB as Revenge of the Bee. Same level of generic title, but way more hilarious :lol
