"DeSanto, who served as executive producer for both X-Men and X2, says the Transformers movie will be set on Earth and based on the original TF story and characters (known to fans as “Generation One”), and adds that he’s immersed himself in the TF “mythology” by rewatching the animated series and reading the comics.
