I have heard from a YouTube video that a female decepticon has been confirmed for the movie.
Also, the cast could be:
Barricade (confirmed )
Optimus (possibly just narration)
Thrust ( possible for plane, unconfirmed )
Blue Pontiac Decepticon
I really hope we hear the story about Volkswagen giving their license for this film at some point. Last I heard, they didn't want to be associated with a brand of "war toys". I'm curious why they had a change of heart. I wonder if Paramount just offered them more money, or if any special concessions had to be made.
Interestingly enough, I noticed that Bumblebee's design does not have the VW logo on his chest, even though it should be there because of the way he transforms. (It should be in roughly the same spot as Bee's Chevy emblem from the other films.) Also, it was mentioned that Bumblebee's missile launchers were removed from the earlier design. I'm curious if these have anything to do with Volkswagen's deal, or if they're just stylistic choices.
From what I understand the Bots are
Spoiler: Spoilers I guess?
So that's what I'm sticking with for the time being.
Changed to a more probable cast... I mean, that’s 100% Starscream. Really don’t understand where the Ramjet theory came from.
Considering the Cinemacon trailer showed multiple jets chasing Bee it’s possible one of the jets is Slipstream! That would be really cool actually.
Starscream (in trailer)
Slipstream (Female Decepticon)
Soundwave (Blue Deception)
And honestly I think there will be a few more cameos. We have to see at least one other Autobot.
Cast is only 4 robots
It’s a transformers movie. There’s undoubtedly more than just 4.
<<“So looking at the movie from that perspective, we thought, we don’t want to overwhelm one Autobot with too many Decepticons. So he has three primary antagonists.”
Two others, who take the form of automobiles, are also being kept secret for now.>>

I understand that there will be Bumblebee + 3 Decepticons + 2 Autobots.
Each day I've heard diffrent claims
Yesterday on another site this was what someone said that saw the test screening.
- the jet isn't starscream because from what they saw it didn't have starscreams personality it was more the following orders of another so they could be done with this.
- the red gtx is the decepticon in charge of this little group said to be a female character
- the blue decepticon is believed to be barricade at least to this person that saw the preview screening with temporary voices he's got a lets just kill everything and leave attitude.
Another claim is that three transformers make a cameo
optimus which weve heard before
Megatron I think that's to far a stretch
Hot rod Mabey in a flashback
That sounds like a good cast to me.
I wouldn’t believe anyone about a test screening at this point. If there had been one, usually we’d hear about reactions from the media. But there could be some truth in there.
Didn't someone say megs makes a cameo or was that false ?
It's reported he's frozen in the ice like in the first film.
But one interesting thing: he doesn't look like how he looked in the first film. It's been reported he looks more G1. Another reason why I believe they're just going down the soft reboot route.
I like the idea of Megatron looking more g1 but I kinda find it ridiculous if he transformers to a huge ass gun
Did Optimus_Prowl tell you all that? and he never told me Hot-Rod had a flashback?
Megatron looking like his G1 self seems weird. It would be kind of hard for him to change form frozen in ice. Aside from that, we see in the '07 film that Megatron looks the same when Archibald Witwicky found him as he does in the present day.
They'd already licensed the VW for the G1 Masterpiece figures so I think they'd had a change of heart long before this movie went into production. A while ago it was said that Takata's acquisition of Tomy opened up more opportunities for licensed toys due to the Tomica ramge.
Anyway, not too long till SDCC, hopefully we'll find out more about who's who.
When is sdcc?
