    I really hope that this is just them giving us an early working name that is subject to change.

    Remember when Sentinel Prime was originally gonna be called Ultra Magnus in Dark of the Moon? I really hope this is the same case.

    That was just “working title”, to spread misinformation incase it was leaked. Shockwave and Crankcase were both called Blitzwing I believe in that same art.

    This is official, and the movie comes out in December. The movie toys come out in October, and they have been in physical production for months at this point.

    The real twist of the movie is that it is NOT connected to Bayverse at all.

    It is the prequel to Unbreakable and exists in the Cloverfield Universe.

    Tarantulas was a better Starscream than Starscream.


    20 yrs after, movie Blitzwing will be a better movie Starscream.



    Starscream sucka at being Starscream.

    Really I personally have a gripe with the Starscream-like con being called Blitzwing but then again, we did have that one brief synopsis that was taken down that referred to Starscream being in this film so for all we know, this could be an attempt at misinformation. Either way, I\'m calling this guy Starscream until the movie absolutely confirms he isn\'t though with that said, it\'s not the end of the world. Transformers has NEVER exactly been the most consistent when it comes to its sprawling multiverse. Multiple characters will get names of popular iconic robots even if they aren\'t the same personality-wise and bear little to no resemblance to that iconic robot, they\'ll sound different, really I think it\'s ridiculous this is an issue and as for those who point out \"But there\'s more issues!\" I\'m sorry but I do not care. If you don\'t want to see this film? Fine, your choice but you\'re not being referred to. What people are referring to are those who simply bemoan even the tiniest of changes.

    Now as for the info presented, I am happy at what\'s being shown. I like that they commented on Bay\'s lack of subtlety, I do like how Travis Knight is looking at this from a storyteller\'s perspective and is actually trying to make a good movie and although I\'m disappointed that they confirmed what Optimus\' cameo would be since I feel stuff like that should be saved for the movie, I am happy to know that he\'s only in the film for seemingly a small capacity which is a good thing. Really my only concern is with how they\'re setting this still within the Bayverse when clearly a LOT has changed. Personally, I think Paramount should seriously just bite the bullet and reboot the film franchise.

    I felt betrayed... It looks like Starscream but it's NOT Starscream.
    Starscream-Blitzwing MEMES are all over the online community now :lol :

    Maybe Travis Knight saw this...

    I don’t think it’ll die down until we find out that this was probably a joke.

    If they would openly say the script is from the writersroom they lost half the fandom already. Same as with outing Bays influence. Theres a reason a lot of the team from past filmmakers is working on this one. Thats because production(pre) already started before TLK tanked.

    Dont get me wrong though, its a fear im having atm. Just like others im hoping this shapes up to be a kickass movie.
    Aside the first and 4th movie, im very sceptical and weary of the next itteration of movies.

    I honestly skeptical that he was a fan of the original series seeing as how Starscream and Blitzwing look nothing alike.

    Question, all we've seen of Blitzwing is that top-down shot from the trailer. What if he doesn't look like Starscream when viewed from any other angle?

    Or maybe they changed the cgi colouring in the trailer so it looks like starscream but in the film it’ll be purple and tan?
