All the transformer movies were directed by Michael Bay
You might be surprised to learn that Steven Spielberg actually directed the first Transformers movie. He was brought on board by producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who had optioned the rights to the Transformers franchise back in 2002. Spielberg was fresh off of directing War of the Worlds (2005), and he was looking for a new project.
Bonaventura convinced him that Transformers would be a perfect fit, and so Spielberg signed on to direct. He even personally pitched the idea to Michael Bay, who ended up directing the sequels.
It’s interesting to note that Spielberg is actually a big fan of the Transformers franchise. He grew up watching the original cartoon, and he even has a few Optimus Prime toys in his office.
The Transformers is a series of American science fiction action films directed by Michael Bay, with the first installment released in 2007. The following two films, Revenge of the Fallen (2009) and Dark of the Moon (2011), were also directed by Bay. Age of Extinction (2014) and The Last Knight (2017) are the fourth and fifth films, respectively, and both were again directed by Bay.
