'The Avengers,' 'Iron Man,' 'The Walking Dead' And 'Lost' Writers Hired For Paramount's 'Transformers' Universe Movies

As you already know, Paramount is embarking on expanding their “Transformers” franchise into a shared universe of movies, with Akiva Goldsman (“Jonah Hex,” “Batman & Robin,” and “Batman Forever“) tasked with overseeing and hiring the brain trust of scribes to bring this all to life. And the intentions are made very clear by the names that have been signed up to further the adventures of Autobots and Decepticons.

Deadline reports that Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead“), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (“Iron Man,” “Punisher: War Zone“), Zak Penn (“X2,” “Elektra,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “The Avengers“) and Jeff Pinkner (“Lost,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2“) are being inked as the initial quartet of writers for Transformers-verse, with more to come. And their credits say it all, with Goldsman and Paramount clearly not messing around, with some big, blockbuster expectations (and why not, given that the series has already proved it can deliver movies that cross the billion dollar mark worldwide).
