    G4 - The Feed - Transformers: Fallen?s Destiny Revealed

    Up until now, fans have been wondering what "Fallen" in the title "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" means. IDW Publishing spoke to MTV News about a five-part prequel mini-series entitled "Transformers: Destiny" that's set to bring the gap between the 2007 blockbuster and Summer 2009 sequel, revealing that the main villain in the new Michael Bay film will a character named The Fallen.

    "[We're going to] explore the background of The Fallen — the main villain of the movie — as well as expand on the 'Reign of Starscream' story that we're doing and tie everything in to what this next movie is going to be," explained writer Chris Mowry. "The next movie starts out with just tons of action and there's obviously going to be a lot of questions, so we're hoping to answer some of those beforehand."

    The Fallen is an incredibly powerful robot and one of the thirteen original Transformers - hellbent on vengeance.

    That's pretty much what the last article said, but a bit paraphrased.

    I'm impressed that Bay has even dug that deep into the fiction, or maybe it was Hasbro's doing. They just told him it was permanently on fire and he was sold.

    I wonder if movie Fallen will look anything like WW Fallen, and what his earth mode looks like.

    It won't matter what he is, the flames will obscure all detail. ;)

    Well, I'm really torn on this news. On one hand I'm actually kind of impressed that the writers delved this far into the mythos. On the other hand I hope it's not a forshadowing of Unicron and that Fallen is handled well. No doubt it will go over alright with the average movie-goer as they love the big apocalyptic stuff and I'm sure anything the Fallen does will be at least semi-apocalyptic in nature.

    I guess I'm up for this as long as it doesn't lead to more of Unicron. He's been overdone and I kind of hope he stays away from the mythos for awhile... sure he can be in the background or something, but I really don't want him to be a driving force in any of the movies so I hope that The Fallen has nothing to do with him.

    Since ths article is merely second-hand reporting from an MTV interview originally reported here (WHY THE HELL can't these sites EVER properly link their sources?), this thread is merey EPIAR and not really news.
