Michael Bay has revealed a new character from his upcoming venture "Transformers: The Last Knight."
According to Comic Book, after revealing that Megatron will be returning from the previous movies of the Transformers franchise and be the prime antagonist in "The Last Knight," Bay posted a picture on his Instagram page that features actress Isabela Money along with the latest addition to the Transformers, Squeeks.
Though not much information has been made available about the new character as yet, it has been confirmed to be an Autobot and from the looks of it, he might be one of the Junkions.
The Junkions first made an appearance in "Transformers: The Movie" where Junkion leader Wreck-Gar debuted and transformed into a motorcycle. Squeeks' motorcycle/scooter form is very similar to that of Wreck-Gar's and hence, it might be him under the disguise.
Also, according to popular fan theory, if the Junkions are present in "The Last Knight," the antagonist of "Transformers: The Movie," Unicorn will also debut in "The Last Knight."
The movie will be written by Paramount's new team of writers for the Transformers franchise, featuring writers like Akiva Goldsman, Christina Hodson, Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn, Jeff Pinkner. Bay will be returning to direct the movie and has stated that it will be his last Transformers film.
Bay has also been revealing information regarding "The Last Knight" on his Instagram account slowly that includes a close-up of Megatron's face with a mysterious growling sound in the background.
Comic Book has also stated that the movie is scheduled to release on June 23, 2017. Previously, the date was held by Warner Bros. "Wonder Woman" live-action movie. However, it seems that after "The Last Knight" announcement, "Wonder Woman" has been shifted a few weeks ahead of its original release date.
"The Last Knight" will be first in a new trilogy that will also consist of a Bumblebee spin-off and a yet-to-be named "Transformers 6." Since Optimus Prime went on a space voyage at the end of last Transformers movie "Age of Extinction," Bumblebee will be leading the Autobots back on Earth.
