Just when you thought Akiva Goldsman’s Transformers writers room was complete, he goes an adds someone else to the staff, collecting writers as if he’s picking up Pokemon. The latest addition to the writers room is former Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight, who joins fellow TV pro Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) in a room that’s looking more and more promising.
