    I’m wondering if they want to wait and make sure that the Bee movie wasn’t just some sort of fluke. If this fails, they can say it’s part of the Bay continuity. If it doesn’t, they can scream “Reboot” from the rooftops. Theres also a possibility that di Bonaventura is stopping them from calling it a reboot.

    Yesterday’s main news thread about this movie was proof of that lmao

    Nightbird and Sideways both being purple ninja-esque antagonists who swap sides and possibly work for Unicron seem to be the similarities Protoman was getting at. And there were also numerous times he hinted at Nightbird and the Terrorcons both working for a bigger bad and also being “Unicronian”.

    I'll try to edit the post to make it clearer. :)

    Right, but I mean more like "I hope Unicron isn't part of the immediate plot of the film" since I feel like going for that could make the story more complex for the average goer than it needs to be at this point in time.

    Why not throw the Quints in there as well, while they're at it? And you know what would go along nicely as well? Shattered Glass!

    The unicron appearance might be as small as the one in earthrise or it might be just a name drop like how it was in the first 5 episodes of TFP.

    I mean, Bumblebee already strayed pretty far from the lore established in the Bayverse movies (*cough cough* Bee in WWII *cough cough*) and it turned out all the better for it, IMO. Goes to show Bay was only half the problem when it came to the live-action movies.

    Hmm. Goes to show that Bay was (probably) only half the problem with the initial live-action movies. Though maybe in his mind, calling it a "reboot" would probably raise red flags among the casual audience. If I’m not mistaken, Paramount's been having some rotten luck when it came to reboots, like the last two Terminator movies and apparently Snake Eyes is generating some major "eh"-power?

    Hey, so long as Bay's not in the director's seat, I'm content to see where this goes.

    I didn't even see TLK, and I still think that was a dumb call…

    I stand corrected when I said it was gonna be better than The Last Knight.

    This is gonna be almost EXACTLY as messy as TLK. We\'d best prepare our craniums for a cavalcade of convoluted crap.

    There’s also the possibility that he either hasn’t watched Bumblebee nor TLK or didn’t pay attention when watching either one. You can’t fit Bumblebee and this new movie into the existing Bayverse without retconning. It won’t matter to any new viewers but it will to anyone who watched the previous 6 movies.

    This just gets more convoluted as more rumours on the additional Beast Wars characters and new crazy details start pouring out from news sources who had the chance to visit the set and witness for themselves the sheer scale of this overly ambitious and highly complex movie..




    BUT...
    THAT BEING SAID..


    I'm TOTALLY hyped but also will temper my expectations way, way low so that I can enjoy this ABSOLUTELY INSANE movie for what it truly is.... a mindless summer blockbuster! :D

    it seems we still dont know much about the movie and yet there's already a lot of info, i'm really concerned there's gonna be too much going on in the film, it has to cover the autobots time adjusting to earth, explain what the decepticons are currently doing, feature unicron and his minions as the main threat, and tie it into beast wars.

    It's not gonna have giant robots aiding Harriet Tubman on the underground railroad, so it's automatically better.

    Wasn't it some adapted from another continuity?

    The *Bayverse* strayed pretty far from the Bayverse movies.

    You’re right but take into account, a lot of characters showed up in the 1st 10 minutes of the Bumblebee movie but most of them weren’t onscreen afterwards.

    Nightbird being a "play both sides but secretly working for Unicron / higher evil"-type like Sideways sounds awesome. I think that would be such a cool thing, especially for a female Transformer.

    Unicron being involved is pretty interesting.
    And cool to learn Cheetor is involved too.
    I hope we'll hear more about Decepticons and Predacons next.

    I may have missed something, but what is Ultra Gear and how does it confirm that Cheetor is in the movie?

    I hope we aren't moving a little too fast here. All of this for only a second movie sounds like we'll get little to no character moments...

    Ultra gear was Cheetor's catchphrase. Usually when something is described as "ultra gear" by fans, it's Cheetor, because nobody would unironically say ultra gear otherwise. :lol
