Official Blog of Viacom (parent company of Paramount Pictures) has revealed the possible identity of the mysterious F-4 Seeker from the Teaser Trailer for the upcoming Travis Knight movie; Transformers: Bumblebee.
Very much like the skillful Seeker, the info went under our radar due to all the entertainment news which popped up, following the release of the trailer. The name was in debate ever since his first look. A recent article from Entertainment Weekly even stated that they’ve kept the Decepticon names all hush-hush.
The Viacom post also stated:
“Before The Last Knight or the Age of Extinction, before Decepticons started leveling American cities and destroying military bases, a yellow Volkswagen Beetle sits forgotten in a California junkyard. It’s been neglected long enough that a honeycomb of bees buzzes beneath its wheel well. Seventeen-year-old Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), takes it home.
“Let me tell you something, the driver don’t pick the car, the car pick the driver,” a hauntingly familiar voice-over – it’s the late Bernie Mac, warning Sam Wtiwicky (Shia LaBeouf) in 2007’s Transformers – announces at the trailer’s opening moments. “It’s a mystical bond between man and machine.””
We don’t want to give away the name right on our front page. You may want to check it out after the jump. The thread associated with this news post may contain the spoiler as well. If you are highly sensitive to possible spoilers, we suggest you to look away now.
Update – the page referenced earlier has since changed, removing the name. Whether or not the name was a mistake or someone jumped the gun, unknown at this time. Stay tuned for official word!
