Robert Kirkman has reportedly exited the Transformers "brain trust" assembled by Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, and Lorenzo Di Bonaventure to craft an expanded Transformers film universe. Kirkman was reported to have joined in May of 2015, though he says that he was only involved for a brief time.
“I have to say, I was only in that room for a day before I found out that I was having my throat surgery that kept me out of Comic Con,” Kirkman told Collider. “I have heard from the people that are in that room there are a lot of amazing Transformers things coming, and I’m very happy as a fan to see what comes from that.”
