Following a cryptic warning video last week, the Transformers 5 villain has revealed himself in a new teaser for Transformers: The Last Knight. There’s no footage quite yet as production is only just gearing up, but Michael Bay has also posted a set video that you can check out in the second player below. It even reveals the automotive form of a new robot character!
According to Michael Bay’s Instagram post, the Transformers 5 villain in the teaser appears to be the new face of Megatron. As Transformers fans are well aware, has been a consistent big bad throughout the film franchise.
The Transformers: The Last Knight cast is confirmed to include the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox, as well as a new role for Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show, Neighbors) is also set to play an unspecified leading role.
Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin June 6 in Detroit with production planned to take place at various locations around the world.
Michael Bay returns to the director’s chair for the film, which is set to be written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the sequel.
Combined, the previous four Transformers films have brought in over $3.7 billion at the global box office with 2014’s Age of Extinction the second-highest grossing in the series. Current plans call for Transformers: The Last Knight to be followed by a Bumblebee spin-off film in 2018 before Transformers 6 arrives in 2019.
