Now Playing: Bumblebee - Official Trailer #2

Soto made his feature debut with the acclaimed drama Charm City King, and was recently announced as the director of the Blue Beetle movie for DC. Ramirez is best known as the showrunner of the Marvel Netflix series The Defenders, and he also wrote episodes of Daredevil, The Twilight Zone, and Fear of the Walking Dead.

This isn't the only Transformers movie in the works either. In November last year, it was reported that Creed II director Steven Caple Jr is also developing a new film in the series.

There's also a new Transformers animated series on the way. Last month it was confirmed that it is being produced by Nickelodeon, and will be a 26-episode "action-comedy series" that focuses on a new species of transforming robots. The final season of the animated Netflix show Transformers: War For Cybertron is also expected later this year.
