    Too early to call that. There was after all a ton of vehicle filming over in Russia for TLK, too.

    How quick people are to forget what happened only four years ago.

    Well the director said Optimus is going to be the main character of the film.

    Oh damn that right!!! I didn't even notice that until you said this! I feel like prime and mirage will definitely get some character development throughout the movie. The scenes where prime driving through Brooklyn might be the scenes where prime is looking at the peaceful life on the planet, and might as well show how prime felt the connection between him and the humanity. Although this might not happen, but it's so cool to think about it :lol

    Yeah, that probably what he's will do for the beginning part of the film in NYC. I feel like Arcee, WJ and BB (to a lesser extent) will get character development as well but Mirage and Prime will probably get the most out of the Autobots.

    Actually rotf 2.0 already happened, it was called tlk
    Battle at ancient ruins
    Prime basically MIA in act 2 versus being dead
    Bee leads the autobots
    Bee finds a tomb of ancient robots (fallen brothers vs the knights)
    Sequel to Sams movie/sequel to Cade’s movie (Aoe)
    Treasure hunt plot (matrix vs staff)

    so this will be rotf 3.0

    If it's a rotf that have no shitty jokes, have a more solid storyline, more recognizable characters, and probably clearer fight scene (bcz of the same cinematographer from BB movie), then I don't see it's that much of a bad thing. Yeah it is the ancient ruins artifact plot again but i don't think that's going to ruin the movie

    I don't mind the change in alt mode. I just hope that the robot mode actually resembles Wheeljack, specifically his signature head design. I do think a sports car with green and red stripes could have looked really good in live action though.

    That would suck if not a race car.

    I've been wondering if Wheeljack is Que as well.

    I'm sort of hoping Wheeljack G1 body is a suit of armor for Que. What if he was forged frail, so he invented a power suit to protect him on missions. I think that'd be a cool idea.

    I'm assuming they're separate characters. There'd be no sense using the name Wheeljack if the intention is for it to be Que. I know Que was originally going to be called Wheeljack, but we know the name got changed for whatever reason (late enough that tie-in material and one release of the figure used Wheeljack). So clearly in the end Bay or whoever made the decision decided the character is Que rather than Wheeljack.

    It'd just be contrived to have them as a single character that changes name, appearance and alt mode for no reason other than a change mind someone had ten years ago in the real world. It's not like Megatron becoming Galvatron, which had some kind of purpose story-wise. Same for Dino and Mirage, we know the real-world reason for the name getting changed so there's no need to retcon it into the fiction.

    I can't say I can really see that van as Wheeljack, but if the robot mode and his personality is still the same, I can live with it. But Wheeljack always had a really cool car design so that's a bit of a bummer for me. Feels like more something you would buy with Beachcomber.

    Actually, is Mirage even going to have his shoulder missile? I guess it wouldn't need to show up in vehicle mode.

    Arcee likes going through color schemes. Pink, red, blue...

    I like how Nightbird has purple rim tires.

    If the robot mode is G1 Wheeljack with van parts I think that will help or at least have his G1 head and wings on his back.
    Still hoping for some fanart of that.

    I have a terrible feeling Scourge might kill off Primal.
