    I read the prequel to DOTM in comics a few weeks back, and I saw Astrotrain in it. He was chasing Elita One, but she escaped.

    Will he be in the movie??

    You have to remember that the comic books are their own thing so things can happen in the comic books that don't happen in the movies or that sometimes even contradict the movies.

    Without the budget constraints of live action CGI a comic book artist and writer can afford to put in any character they want and focus on the robots as much as they would like to. Thus you see lots of comic book only characters.

    Yup.

    Elita One cut a fuel valved or something, and he crashed into a building and exploded.

    He went kaboom. So no. Besides, I think it would be hard to put triple changers in the movie-verse and make them look realistic.

    Nope. Elita cut him and he went boom.

    But then his boyfriend Shockwave stomped her to death.
