OK, so we know Michael Bay is directing Transformers 4 and yes, I know many of you don’t like his take on the mythology…
But I do. I’m an unashamed fan of all things TF, and yes, that includes Bay’s movies. So I love hearing the latest news about what, or who, we may see next.
Now the following rumours have been floating around since before the first movie came about and, like Unicron, there are a few things the fans really want to see… and, if JoBlo is to be believed, we may get to see one of the biggest – the Dinobots!
The guys at JoBlo claim this is from a reliable source, but do point out it is a rumour and should be treated as such… for now.
They write: “Transformers 4 will feature none other than the famed Dinobots, including fan favorite Grimlock… One of the villains of the film will be a character named Lockdown, who has a ship full of decommissioned Transformers, including the dinobots, which are somehow brought back to life by a captured Optimus Prime. Prime is joined by returning autobot Bumblebee and at one point both characters (and potentially others) will “ride” the Dinobots into battle in Hong Kong (which fits well within the announcement that the film would film partially in China), with Prime on Grimlock and Bumblebee on a Pterandon, presumably Swoop.”
Wait, ride the Dinobots?!
They go on: “Additionally, the autobot Hound will make his debut (he, along with Soundwave and Jazz, was one of my favourite characters) , as well as a former “Samurai” Decepticon that wants to regain his honor and become an Autobot (UPDATE: Source confirms this is Drift). And what about Megatron, who is presumed dead after the last film? Well, fans of Transformers: The Movie will be happy to know that not only will the dinobots be making their debut, but also Galvatron, who is basically Megatron “reborn” (and originally voiced by the first Spock, Leonard Nimoy).”
Sooooo… Dinobots and Galvatron, huh? We’ve been here before but we guess this could make sense… how long until we see Unicron we wonder? Especially since we’re hearing rumours that this could be the beginning of a new TF trilogy spanning a larger story?
