Plot details remain somewhat thin on the ground, but Michael Bay has dropped a couple of hints, including the intriguing tidbit that the film will, “delve into the space race between the USSR and the USA suggesting there was a hidden Transformers role in it all that remains one of the planet’s most dangerous secrets.”
Sounds a tad daft to us, but hey, we’re not talking Citizen Kane here are we? Meanwhile, Bay has also confirmed that a villain is in place, namely the robot dictator Shockwave. A one-eyed Transformer who’s alternative form is basically a massive cannon, Shockwave snatched his chance to take power on the Transformer homeworld of Cybertron, when the Autobots and Decepticons upped sticks to Earth.
Bay is convinced the fans will be pleased with his version of Shockwave, after admitting that the last film’s big bad, The Fallen, was “kind of a shit character.” Blunt and to the point…we like this man’s honesty!
