Transformers 5 and Transformers Animated Movie Get Writers

Deadline is reporting that the early results are in from the Transformers Writers room and the powers that be have decided that Akiva Goldsman will write the script for Transformers 5 while the Ant-Man writing team will take on an animated feature. The Transformers 5 script is being written on the assumption that Mark Wahlberg will star as Michael Bay as director but neither are actually signed up for TF5. As Bay tweeted, "Re: directing TF5. No, it's not official. I have not committed to any idea as of yet. Just met with Steven [Spielberg] and we are discussing." Previous interviews with Mark Walhberg indicated his interest in a sequel is highly dependent on Bay's involvement so if Bay returns, Mark returns. No Bay and Paramount is going to have to work harder to get Walhberg to return. Likely they are hoping that Akiva's script might be enough to get Bay to sign up again.

Transformers: Devastation Playable Characters Video and Blitzwing Profile

Here is a new video for Transformers: Devastation that provides another look at Optimus Prime, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, Bumblebee, and Grimlock. Despite some of the recent bad guy profiles (including this Blitzwing one), it seems these are the core playable characters in the game. Any "new" characters are really just skins using this core (such as the pre-order DLC). So far no additional info has been announced about what, if any, DLCs are planned for the game to expand it or add other new characters or skins. Transformers: Devastation will be hitting stores on October 6 or available for pre-order now.
