'Transformers' Spin-Offs Could Go To Unknown Places And Times

Lorenzo di Bonaventura is one of the main men behind the Transformers franchise, and will more than likely be a main man for the foreseeable future as it appears he will working on some of those spin-offs the franchise is in the early days of development.

Speaking to the media, while they were on set of Transformers: The Last Knight, di Bonaventura talked about those spin-offs and where they can go. "Well, the animated movie is not Earth-based. That’s a Cybertron-based movie," di Bonaventura giving a quick history lesson. "I think it’s conceivable, but I think all of us involved, it’s sort of instinctive – to keep it relatable, you need an Earth relationship to it. It’s not necessary, but I think we like it."

However while space-travel might be a stretch, time-travel is on the table. "You could do [different time periods]. For sure, you could do that," di Bonaventure teased. "And we’ve examined – you could easily make an argument that in Roman times, you know what I mean? That seems like a good period."

For inspiration an omnibus was created from the many stories from the many canon surrounding the Transformers' collective. "Hasbro put together sort of a bible of all the mythologies that have been put forward," di Bonaventura told. "They put it into one thing, and some of the comic book doesn’t fit exactly with the TV shows and the movies. So there were a few rough edges we had to round off."

Now while they do have that pool of ideas to draw inspiration from di Bonaventura does however further went to explain things. "But now with a fifth movie coming, there’s a lot of mythology that we’ve established as well," di Bonaventura clarified. "So, what we did was really built all three of the things into one very large document – one very large world."

Transformers: The Last Knight is directed by Michael Bay with a script by Ken Nolan, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway, and will star Mark Wahlberg, Jerrod Carmichael, Isabela Moner, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Tyrese Gibson, Santiago Cabrera, Liam Garrigan, and Stanley Tucci. It will be released June 23, 2017.
