I know that at this point it is almost impossible to tell where the TFCU is going (except for knowledge of an animated prequel movie and a Bumblebee spin-off movie). We know that Mark Wahlberg (along with Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor) has a three picture deal with Paramount (TF6 could take the spot of the third movie). With all of that being said where do you expect the Cinematic Universe to go after The Last Knight? If the writers room thought up enough stories to last us until 2025 where do you think certain character's stories will go and end? Here are my thoughts of how this universe will take shape: - Mark Wahlberg will reprise his role of Cade Yeager for TF 6 and will leave the franchise after that. - Isabela Moner will reprise her role for the Bumblebee spin-off movie and will also be in TF 6 alongside Wahlberg. - Laura Haddock's character will return for TF 6 and will be one of the main human characters. - Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson will survive TLK and will return for future installments, but only in smaller roles. - Anthony Hopkin's character will not make it past The Last Knight but will be brought up again in future installments. - Stanley Tucci will survive the events of TLK but will not be a major character in any of the future installments. As far as robot characters go: - Optimus Prime will return to Cybertron at the end of TLK and either; A.)sacrifice himself to restore Cybertron, or B.)stay on Cybertron to help rebuild and welcome returning Autobots from throughout the stars. If he survives TLK then he will appear in TF 6. - Bumblebee will (obviously) survive TLK and appear in his own spin-off movie, which he also survives. He will appear in TF 6 but will gradually be replaced by Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime. - Hound will survive TLK and appear in the Bumblebee spin-off movie as a minor character. He will also return for TF 6. - Drift will survive TLK and will appear in the Bumblebee spin-off movie as a side character. He will also return for TF 6. - Crosshairs will not survive TLK. - Hot Rod will fill the leadership role in Prime's absence and will appear in the Bumblebee spin-off movie as a side character. He will return for TF 6 and in future installments of the franchise. - Grimlock will survive TLK and will have a small role in the Bumblebee spin-off movie. He will return for TF 6. - The Dinobots will be defeated (though not necessarily killed) in TLK and will make an appearance in TF 6. - Galvatron/Megatron will live to fight another day after TLK and will act as a sort of wild card in the TFCU (think Darth Maul in Star Wars Rebels). He will return for TF 6. - Barricade will return for the Bumblebee spin-off movie as the main antagonist. He will survive to TF 6 but will be defeated by Bumblebee (think Cheetor versus Thrust at the end of Beast Machines). - The other Decepticons from the TLK will survive TLK but will act as a separate unit from Megatron under the command of Onslaught.
