Where can this go?
It has been known for some time that a Bumblebee focused film is in the works, and that one will be directed by Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings). Where the franchise goes beyond that is anyoneâ€™s guess. A Transformers writers room has been around now since 2015 with the likes of Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down), Steven DeKnight (Daredevil) and more putting together a roadmap for the series.
The film series, for the most part, has ignored the 1980s cartoons and comic books, so itâ€™s difficult to say this is all building towards storylines such as Unicron or theÂ Quintessons, but you have to think that ultimately the storyline has to be building towards some massive climax.
Is it really going to take a total of 19 films to get there, however?
Transformers: The Last Knight will hit theaters on June 23.
