Today the Internet is abuzz with some Transformers news. Namely Batman & Robin writer Akiva Goldsman will be writing the fifth movie and an animated prequel series dealing with Cybertron is in development. As part of all of this many outlets are reporting that Michael Bay is returning to direct Transformers 5, when that doesn’t appear to be the case yet.
The director took to Twitter to deny the reports he’s officially directing Transformers 5:
Re: directing TF5. No, it's not official. I have not committed to any idea as of yet. Just met with Steven and we are discussing.

While it seems likely he could direct the movie, it doesn’t look to be official just yet. It seems that people jumped the gun with the announcement of the writer for the movie.
