‘Transformers’ Franchise Gears Up for More Sequels and Spinoffs With Akiva Goldsman
Since Michael Bay decided to make Transformers: Age of Extinction his last directorial outing with the franchise, it’s been unclear just where the series is heading. We’d heard talk of Mark Wahlberg returning to continue the storyline that began with last summer’s film, but little else since then.
