Meet Autobot Vespa Squeeks in Latest Transformers 5 Photos

23 June 2016 10:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since production started on Transformers: The Last Knight late last month, we've already learned that a few of our favorite Autobots and Decepticons such as Megatron and Bumblebee will be back for this sequel. Today, director Michael Bay took a break from the production to introduce a brand new robot character, Squeeks. The director is seen in the first of two new photos alongside Squeeks and his new co-star Isabela Moner.

We're pretty sure Squeeks is an Autobot, with the director debuting two new photos on his official website MichaelBay.com. Squeeks is a 1960s/1970s Vespa scooter, and since we see what appears to be a junkyard in the back of this photo, it's possible that Isabela Moner's mystery character discovers Squeeks in this automotive graveyard. This image comes just a few days after the Decepticon cop car Barricade was unveiled.

Shooting has been under way for the last few weeks on Transformers: The Last Knight, under the direction of Michael Bay, as the cast continues to be rounded out. Earlier this month, we reported that Anthony Hopkins has joined the sequel in a mystery role, and now we have word that another actor has come aboard. Da Vinci's Demons star Laura Haddock revealed in a humorous video that she has officially come aboard Transformers: The Last Knight, although no details were given about who she's playing.

Earlier this morning, the actress posted a video on Twitter where she confirmed that she has joined the cast of the new Transformers movie. While it isn't known when she will start filming her scenes, the actress epressed her excitement to be acting alongside one of her "heroes." Here's what she had to say in her Twitter video below.

Decepticon Cop Car Barricade Returns in Transformers 5

10 June 2016 10:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

'To punish and enslave.' That's the motto of Decepticon Barricade, who returns in Transformers: The Last Knight under the guise of a police cruiser. This robot in disguise is just the latest character confirmed for the impending sequel, which is shooting right now under the direction of Michael Bay. It was Bay who first shared this image of the mighty Decepticon on his website.

Always the 'bad cop', Barricade was first seen in the original 2007 Transformers movie and went onto appear in the next two sequels, 2009's Revenge of the Fallen and 2011's Dark of the Moon. He wasn't a key player in Age of Extinction, but he did show up in footage from the Barricade at the Battle of Chicago, shown to demonstrate how dangerous these robots are. Barricade is known as a very 'complicated' robot and is notorious for his fractious' attitude, even by Decepticon standards. While »

Check Out The New Look Barricade In Transformers: The Last Knight

10 June 2016 8:57 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The latest vehicle to be revealed from Michael Bay's Transformers: The Dark Knight is Barricade, a character who was actually killed off back in 2011's Dark of the Moon (somthing Josh Duhamel, who released the image via Twitter, acknowledges below). How exactly he's been resurrected remains to be seen, but the villainous Decepticon looks very cool. It will be interesting to see who's revealed next.  Set to be released on June 23rd next year, the movie will feature the return of Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as new roles for Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael. Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin on June 6th, and will then move to currently unrevealed locations around the world as a new adventure begins. With Bay back in the director’s chair, the screenplay for the movie was written by Iron Man's Art Marcum and Matt Holloway »

Transformers: The Last Knight’s Bumblebee Gets A Slick Makeover

5 June 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether you like it or not, Transformers is expanding into a full-blown cinematic universe on the level of Marvel and DC, with upcoming fifth entry Transformers: The Last Knight serving to introduce some key players in the series’ extended mythology while planting seeds for potential spinoffs or even prequels.

One character already set up for a spinoff is Bumblebee, the yellow Transformer who befriended human Sam Witwicky (Shia Labeouf) in the far simpler time that was the summer of 2007. And right ahead of filming on The Last Knight, returning director Michael Bay has Tweeted out our first look at the Autobot in car form (a custom-built Camaro, natch):

Bee is back! @generalmotors really got it done with this custom-built 2016 Camaro. #transformers pic.twitter.com/t8NkOQlqc5

Last week, it was revealed that the nefarious Megatron will return in Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight, which recently started production under the direction of Michael Bay.

Today we have our first look at one of the returning Autobots from this beloved franchise, the iconic Bumblebee.

Director Michael Bay revealed the first look photo on his official website MichaelBay.com, while also adding more details on Twitter. The filmmaker revealed that this version of Bumblebee is a "custom-built 2016 Camaro," but there isn't anything else we know about how Bumblebee has been upgraded for Transformers: The Last Knight. We have previously seen Optimus Prime in the first teaser from Transformers 5, but we're not sure which Transformer the director will reveal next, as production continues.

Anthony Hopkins Joins ‘Transformers 5’

3 June 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anthony Hopkins is joining the cast of Paramount and Hasbro’s next Transformers film with Mark Wahlberg starring and Michael Bay returning to direct.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the movie.

Details behind the next pic are under wraps, and sources say that Wahlberg is the only cast member from “Age of Extinction” who’s expected to reprise his role.

This past spring, Paramount announced it would be assembling a writers’ room to build its new “Transformers” universe that would include spinoffs, along with new installments in the franchise. The room was overseen by Akiva Goldsman with the studio recently tapping Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (“Iron Man”) along with Ken Nolan (“Black Hawk Down”) to write the script.

Hopkins was last seen in “Collide.” He is repped by UTA and Independent Talent Group.

Megatron Returns in Transformers 5 Teaser

31 May 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before the Memorial Day weekend, a cryptic video teaser revealed a special surprise would be unviled for Transformers: The Last Knight today, with the franchise's Twitter hinting that "something wicked this way comes". Some fans thought this might be an announcement that Shia Labeouf is reprising his role as Sam Witwicky from the original trilogy, since it was recently announced that Josh Duhamel is coming back as Lennox. As it turns out, that wasn't the case, with the franchise instead revealing the return of Megatron, who gets a new look.

Both the Official Transformers Twitter and director Michael Bay's Instagram revealed Megatron's upgrade, while confirming that production is fully under way this week. Last week, the director shared the first set photos from Cuba, although it seems that principal photography won't truly happen until later this week. Unfortunately, the filmmaker wouldn't tease any details about how the villainous Megatron »
