    now that he's confirmed as being in it..

    i'm guessing they want to do a 'transformers the movie' storyline, with megatron being resurrected in time for the third movie - but as unicron would be even more of a stretch than the dinobots, they're using the fallen to play unicron's part?

    Where exactly was it confirmed that the 'fallen' of the title refers to 'The Fallen' exactly?

    yeah there's never been any solid confirmation of what the fallen refers to
    nothing from official sources anyway

    From this .

    Chris Ryall says they (IDW) had the screenplay for Revenge of the Fallen. Simon Furman will be writing the adaptation for Revenge, so one would assume he knows who is in the movie.


    Also, "The 13" is a big deal project for both IDW and Hasbro, part of Hasbro's ongoing canon that all continuities of Transformers have the same Primus and Unicron (possibly overriding whatever their creators have previous said). So the Fallen apparently being in Revenge may eventually tie (off-screen) into The 13.

    yes, but it still only counts as unofficial confirmation, because it's not from someone actively involved in the overall production. FUrman won't be able to start on it until they finish filming.

    With Operation Disinformation as part of the worst pre-release ideas ever I wouldn't say anything is really confirmed until opening day.

    But let's say that old Fallen is in the film. Just how much will he get changed? Will he have the same basic character and back story, or will that get changed as well? Will he get crotch killed like Blackout or will he put up an actual fight? Will he get played for a camp feel or a serious feel? And just how the heck did the writers work in The Fallen when so many other things haven't made the franchise cut?

    I was hoping the Fallen wouldn't make the cut, not that I don't like the character, in contrary I think he's awesome. Maybe I'm just worried his role will be a disappointment.

    If they try to make the movie too badd@ss all at once it'll just end up like Spidey 3 >:c

    he could even be saying it as if the charcter is reffered to as the fallen, but not called that

    I dont see this as confirmation ether.

    Furman has a habit of messing with people and this could all be just a way to keep us mis-informed.

    I still don't buy the whole misinformation thing...

    It is possible that this is just Furman having some fun, but it could be true as well. And honestly, I kinda hope it is. Really dig the Fallen, and I'd be interested to see him adapted to the movie universe.

    Very true we don't have any idea of who might be in on Operation Disinformation.

    If The Fallen is in the movieverse then i'm happy ^^ If he is doesnt mean Unicron will be in the 3rd, I once said that i like the idea of him manipulating Megatron's actions. But i guess before saying anything else i should wait more info.

    If it turns out to be true it first strikes me as a bad idea, there's still to much about the autobot decepticons conflict to be told before bringing Unicron and the Fallen.

    Simply, I think the Fallen is there to ground the cosmic scope of the Transformers' backstory. If Bay makes a third film, it would allow him to introduce Unicron and Primus. It's no surprise considering the man dreamt of Transformers turning into aircraft carriers.
