    well the Fallen could have been on earth before the first movie, so he could still "return"

    Bay said, that all 3 Films could stand alone, so your tory is not logic for the people who see the film

    and why should a million years old ancient transformer hide on earth?

    wait, if he was on earth, before the first movie wouldn't it still be stand alone? He was never referenced or anything. And megatron crashed on earth didn't he? Whos to say the Fallen didn't either.

    Why should an alien robot come to Earth and turn into a truck?

    I wonder if we're reading into this too much and it just refers to the fact that the Transformers are returning for a second big-screen adventure?

    sounds like to me that the fallen are the decepticons and "the return" refers to the decepticons returning to earth. you cant "return" if you never left, and the autobots never left, only the decepticons did. You cant just call a sequel "The return" and introduce some unknown transformer that had nothing to do with the first movie as returning

    THIS THIS so very much THIS.

    It could just be that the title doesn't translate well into German...

    -edit-
    PS:
    Mods, what's a "Revnge?"

    Congratulations, we've turned into the Japanese. Other countries are having to take our horribly long and painful movie titles and simplify them into something better.

    I'm still agreeing with Bottom Out on the whole "The Fallen" scenario anyway. I may be wrong, but I'll wait till the film is out.

    Rückkehr, Rache, etwas das gleiche Ding für mich.

    (That's German for "Return, Revenge, somewhat the same thing for me.")

    Again, this.

    Reading too much into German titles is probably a bit of a blind alley, in all honesty; from my experience, on the occasions that the Germans to bother to translate titles and so forth, the ones they choose are often incredibly generic and simplified. Just look at the German titles of many Animated episodes, for example: "Home Is Where the Spark Is" became "Megatron's Return". "Headmaster" became "The Mad Genius". "Rise of the Constructicons" became "Bulkhead's New Friends".

    My guess is the same as Sol Fury's: that the "Return" alluded to by the German title is just meant in a wholly generic way to denote that the Transformers are back, as with, say, The Mummy Returns or Batman Returns. Course, I could be wrong, but either way I'm not forming any theories based on this info...

    Germans are stupid when it comes to translating movie titles.

    My guess would be that the German marketing team thought the title just sounded better and told people the important bit that another movie was on the way.

    Except Furman already confirmed
    the titular Fallen (twice) as a character being based upon the Fallen character he created for War Within: Dark Ages. The published interview was soon censored to remove all references to the Fallen.

    Hell, Furman is writing both the sequel comic adaptation and
    The Thirteen, which likely tells the story of the first Thirteen Transformers, of which the Fallen is a member. Apparently Hasbro considers the project a big deal. A coincidence? I doubt it.

    Yeah, at least they didn't call it "Transformers: The Movie That Comes After The First Movie."

    I don't even see this as news. It reveals exactly nothing about the film except for a movie title in another language.

    Also, correct spelling and punctuation appear to have gone the way of the dinosaurs. Does nobody use Firefox at all for their browser? It tells you the very MOMENT you've spelled something incorrectly.
