The Reboot Of Transformers May Not Be Happening After All

Not exactly the most illuminating statement in the world, but Hasbro clearly doesn’t want people to believe that there’s a reboot on the way right now. Recently, a report dropped claiming that Hasbro said at the Toy Fair 2018 during its investor preview that the Transformers franchise would be rebooted following the release of Bumblebee and that Hasbro would have more creative control over the series moving forward. In addition, Transformers 6 — which was originally scheduled to release June 18, 2019 — was removed from Paramount-Hasbro’s film slate. A grain of salt was still necessary, but considering the lackluster performance of the sequels both critically and commercially, it was a believable report.
