If you’ve been in the Transformers Fandom for a few years now, you’ll understand the rumor mill that is the Transformers live action movies. It’s not uncommon to start reading rumors about which villains will be in the next sequel, Michael Bay will return / not return, and much more.
The latest story that ran wild, has now been debunked by actor Mark Ryan (voice actor for Bumblebee, Jetfire, and Lockdown), which several news outlets reported as the source of the rumors. However, Mr. Ryan claims this is completely false, from Mr. Ryan’s Facebook page:
I’m totally stunned regarding the current misleading online chatter about TF-5 and comments I did not make! I have never given an official interview regarding TF-5, nor would I even utter the words Unicron or Quintessons! This is all internet speculation and hype because I was misquoted from a casual chat with a fan at an event in the UK. I sincerely have no idea what the storyline for TF-5 will be, or who/what’s in it, or even who will direct it! It’s all secret until the movie is released so as not to spoil the excitement for the fans. Sorry guys! I did not say what you are reading online and even if I knew, I would not tell! Always check with the original source directly first before posting speculation please. Cheers! Mark Ryan.
Take it for what it is, but remember to always try and take Transformers movie news with a pinch of salt. As always, we’ll keep you updated.
