has posted an article in which they claim that a "reliable source"(who attended a recent marketing event) has provided them with information on characters to appear in Transformers 4
. They did label the information as a "rumor" so take it with a grain of salt. However they also claimed that their source has been reliable in the past....so...onwards to the list!
- Swoop(implied since apparently Bumblebee will ride on a Pteranadon while Optimus Prime will ride Grimlock)
- Former "Samurai" Decepticon who wants to regain his honor and become an Autobot(Drift? Bludgeon?)
Since the end of Dark Of The Moon
, fans have speculated that Megatron
would return as Galvatron in Transformers 4, after all...he IS the almighty Megatron...reformatted. Lockdown might not be too surprising(if this rumor turns out to be true), due to Hasbro pulling cues from Transformers Animated
(and Lockdown rose to popularity in that show).
Read on for plot details...be forewarned, if these rumors are the plot details reveal a substantial part of the movie..so read at your own risk!
Potential SPOILER WARNING!
From Joblo: That's right, folks, our source has confirmed that TRANSFORMERS 4 will feature none other than the famed Dinobots, including fan favorite Grimlock. No word on whether he'll retain his neanderthal voice, but one can only hope he does as that's a true staple of the character. One of the villains of the film will be a character named Lockdown, who has a ship full of decommissioned Transformers, including the dinobots, which are somehow brought back to life by a captured Optimus Prime. Prime is joined by returning autobot Bumblebee and at one point both characters (and potentially others) will "ride" the Dinobots into battle in Hong Kong (which fits well within the announcement that the film would film partially in China), with Prime on Grimlock and Bumblebee on a Pterandon, presumably Swoop.
