Ominous Teaser For Transformers: The Last Knight Heralds Megatron’s Return


Megatron, the harbinger of death that has loomed large over Paramount and Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise ever since its inception, is on the verge of a return for next year’s blockbuster sequel, Transformers: The Last Knight.

That’s according to an ominous teaser shared via the movie’s official Twitter account, showcasing a close up of the devious Decepticon glowering at the camera replete with a booming, mechanical grumble. It’s a snippet that tees up The Last Knight entering production – because apparently that’s a thing now – and in turn portends all kinds of danger for our Autobot heroes. A battle is coming, it seems.

So, there you have it; unlike early speculation, it appears the Decepticon that Bay is teasing is in fact Megatron, and not a robot from the Beast Wars: Transformers series as many had suggested.

Returning to the franchise after his turn in 2014’s Age of Extinction is Mark Wahlberg, teeing up a screen partnership between Cade Yeager and Lt. William Lennox, after Josh Duhamel closed a deal to return to the Transformers series. Elsewhere, Nickelodeon starlet Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael round out the preliminary cast.

Transformers: The Last Knight will reveal all of its robots in disguise when Michael Bay’s sequel descends on theaters come June 17, 2017. It’ll be followed in quick succession by Transformers 6said to be a Bumblebee spinoff – on June 8, 2018, before another installment arrives in time for June 28, 2019.
