    We've been so fixated on the mysterious red paint on Prime's face (that may or may not have something to do with him being controlled by the Creators) that I think we've forgotten about someone else.

    On June 1st 2016, Michael Bay revealed Megatron to us. But you know what else? Megatron also has a strange red paint on his face.
    What's the significance? Could they both be simultaneously controlled by their makers?

    We actually have not forgotten about the paint... a lot of people were talking about it when the first teaser came out because Megatron has the paint there aswell.

    I suggested it as the movie version of the Hate Plague. Now I'm not very sure about that theory anymore.

    Anyone thought that the red paint could be blood. Human blood and it's a symbolic reference to the fact that megatron and prime have both caused harm and destruction to two worlds between them and have an incredible amount of blood on their hands.

    But in the trailers Optimus is the only one with red paint and Megatron has none.

    We have seen next to nothing of megatron, however the images released earlier last year showed megatrons face with the same red on it

    That is not true... see if you can find screenshots of the trailer because Megatron does have the paint

    Given how OP and Megatron were revived, and how they've promised continuity between the films..

    Could it be possible OP is slowly having aspects of Megatron's personality take over him and vice versa?

    OP becoming more violent, Megatron becoming more peacelike?

    In the first trailer, Megatron does have the red paint on his face during his confrontation with Lennox.

    I think it is mostly the eyes that are interesting. Why does Megatron have purple eyes?
    Maybe he also seeks redemption, as Prime does? Thus his eyes get some blue (good)

    I don't think it's paint and I think it's part of them. It's part of their past, who they once were and what binds them together. Why you can't have one without the other and why each is the other's balance in the universe.

    Before everyone goes philosophical on a Michael Bay flick, I think they're both possessed by this weird entity that has them turning on each other. Sounds like the Hate Plague to me. Prime and Megatron might work together, but these markings indicate that its for the wrong reasons. Despite this I do hope we do get a really good fight with the two of them; TF1 had too many jumpcuts to other scenes, TF2 was a mess, TF3 was balls, TF4 suffered the same problem as the first one.
