    The article is written by an "80 year old widow named Sister Susan who has a Facebook and Twitter." Let that sink in for a second.

    Not sure what to really say....

    Not sure how trust worthy the source is - as I cant find any visual evidence that he actually said it. Lots of spelling errors in the article, several

    If this is true then it confirms the Quintessons and Rodimus Prime... however it also means that they are going to just use Rodimus and the death of Prime as a way to slingshot the story back to Earth with Galvatron - with Optimus sending Rodimus to Earth to help the Autobots.

    So basically the movie sounds like the following;
    - Movie opens.
    - Optimus finds Quintessons
    - Optimus is attacked by Quintessons for unknown reasons (Working for Unicron?)
    - Optimus bumps into Hot Rod and heads back to Earth
    - On Earth Optimus has a final battle with Galvatron and dies
    - Hot Rod takes over as leader
    - Movie ends.

    I get the basic elements... but surely it would make more sense to turn Bumblebee into a Prime to take-over rather than introducing a brand new Autobot who just happens to become a Prime based off his prior appearances.


    Though it would set-up for TF6 to essentially tell a redone version of the animated movie;
    - Quintessons heading to Earth with their master (Unicron?)
    - Galvatron and the Decepticons being victorious and essentially the Autobots on the run
    - Optimus dead
    - Rodimus Prime set-up to do his 'Matrix' scene and defeat Galvatron and Unicron
    - Other Autobots given the tasks of fighting off the Quintessons and Unicron

    There is a lot of questionable stuff in that article. They apparently want to start filming in a few months? I'll believe that when I see it...

    The same website has an article where they claim FX has canceled the final season of Sons of Anarchy... their highest rated show ever.

    OP, you should be very ashamed of yourself.

    Because they let out so many details of AOE this far in advance...

    Plus Michael Bay is a 'Chatty Cathy'?

    Sister Susan has also written articles about aliens and Malaysia Airlines, Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars 7, etc. I'm not sure her sources are valid.

    media matters.org-Unfortunately for Kooiman, the claim that Obama offered to pay out of pocket for a "museum of Muslim culture" originated from the satirical website the National Report. As the fact-checking site Snopes.com points out, a now-removed disclaimer on the National Report noted: "National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news."

    Wikipedia-For the Colombian singles chart, see National-Report.
    National Report (nationalreport.net) is a satirical website. It is published by Allen Montgomery.[1]

    Among headline-generating spoofs are:

    a report that Arizona's governor Jan Brewer intended to introduce mandatory gay-to-straight conversion courses into the state's public school system[2]
    a report that fooled researchers at Fox News Channel, in which the President was purported to have announced his intention to spend his own money to keep a Muslim museum open during a government shutdown.[3]
    a report that that a man in Hanna, Wyoming was the first recipient of a RFID chip which, the report claimed, was part of an Obamacare pilot program.[1]
    a report published on November 2, 2013 claiming a fictitious Assam Rape Festival created a furor in Indian national and local media. Several newspapers and blogs reported the same.[4][5][6]
    a report that an invasion of illegal immigrants forcibly took control of the small town of Sarita, Texas.[7]


    I think its safe to say this sight is fake. plus those articles.

    Thanks, guessed it might be fake in my comment;
    "Not sure how trust worthy the source is"

    The rest of my post was me giving a theory of how it would work - if it did turn out to be real. I didn't believe it as real as we hadn't got proof - but speculating about the plot is generally better than letting a thread go to waste :p

    Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

    I actually realized it was fake minutes after I posted, hence the edits. Also the original title had "(TF5 Spoilers?)" At the end. I also stated that I never heard of this site before. So once again I'm sorry for being an idiot.
    Original post is sitting in the news forum if you need proof.
