There had been talk from Paramount executives about their franchise movies not being in a shared universe when saying plans for movies like a Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover would probably never happen. However, it does seem as though Transformers exist in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle universe, as evident by a set video taken by this chap.
In the video, someone in a Bumblebee outfit during a Halloween parade high fives Noel Fisher, who plays Michelangelo in the movie. So, the Transformers certainly exist in their universe, even if it’s just the Michael Bay produced films.
Check it out below:
