Well, there’s no denying that the new Transformers movie, The Last Knight, is a King Arthur tale at this stage (here and here).

But now comes the news that we may have our King Arthur…

Word on the nerdsphere is that Liam Garrigan, who plays King Arthur in ABC’s Once Upon a Time, is the man that Michael Bay and Co want to play the mythical King in the new movie.

Now, we’re hearing that, despite him playing the same character twice, this is NOT the same King Arthur. So don’t be confused.

Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock, Jerrod Carmichael, Gil Birmingham Anthony Hopkins, and Santiago Cabrera as Merlin will star.

Paramount will release Transformers: The Last Knight on June 23rd, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
