Why Walking Dead Creator Robert Kirkman Quit The Transformers Cinematic Universe Writer's Room After One Day
International Business Times reports that Robert Kirkman, creator of popular zombie-encrusted soap opera The Walking Dead
, has opened up on the reasons why he was only in the Transformers Cinematic Universe's Writers' Room for a single day. It's related to the health issues that kept him out of last year's San Diego Comic-Con for the first time in 10 years. Keep reading for further details and a video of Kirkman responding to the question.
In July 2015, Kirkman wrote an apologetic blog post
to fans in which he expressed his regret that he would need to miss his first Comic-Con in 10 years due to an unexpected throat surgery. It turns out that this procedure not only came at a bad time for his Comic-Con schedule, but for his “Transformers” writers room schedule as well. In the video below, Kirkman admits to Collider
that he was only present in the room for one day before he had to, respectfully, step away from the project.
Kirkman also stated that he has been a longtime Transformers fan, and is looking forward to the new films.
Members of the Transformers Cinematic Writers' Room who did not
have to bow out for medical reasons include the writers of Amazing Spider-Man 2
and Akiva Goldsman, writer of among other projects the Joel Schumacher Batman
films. Transformers 5
is due out on June 23rd of 2017.
