He is described as brash, yet protective, and the Brother-In-Arms of Bumblebee. speculates that this reveal is an indicator that we might be seeing Unicron appear in the films. The appearance of Megatron is also another clue to his presence in The Last Knight. Unicron is known as the bot whose proportions allow him to devour whole planets, as well as rebuild wounded bots. If he is indeed our primary villain, our protagonists are in for a tough battle. The dinosaurs from Age Extinction opened a door for the writers to introduce a variety of bots, and the possibility of other non-humanoid bots have been teased in the early movie posters.

What To Expect

Not much information is available for the cast, however we do see the return of a few cast members from Age of Extinction, such as Mark Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, and Josh Duhamel. The surviving Autobots team is also back. Since the Decepticons were defeated, there is no confirmation as it if any of Megatron’s team will appear.

Transformers: The Last Knight is set to release June 2017 during the summer blockbuster season.
