Los Angeles: While many considered human characters in the popular "Transformers" franchise meaningless, writer Akiva Goldsman has hinted that there would still be humans in the future films.

The question of whether the franchise will still feature human characters started mounting after "Transformers: Age of Extinction".
People found that Cade Yeagar (Mark Wahlberg) and his family's storyline in the film was weightless. The relationship between Sam (Shia LaBeouf) and Bumblebee in the first movie worked well, but in the second, third and fourth movies, human characters seemingly became meaningless and could not give significant contribution to the stories.
Despite people's thoughts about human characters, Goldsman told IGN that humans would remain the stars of the franchise. Although Goldsman thought that "Transformers" could still be alive without humans, he found it still important to put humans into future movies, reports aceshowbiz.com
"But, fundamentally, there seems to be something really great about the interaction between the two species.A
"I think that, in the main, I would suggest that that would be something you wouldn't want to squander. Although that doesn't mean that you couldn't do all sorts of things for a little while," he said.
Goldsman is currently writing "Transformers 5", helped by some other notable scribes. Michael Bay is returning to direct the movie, which is expected to release in 2017.
