Transformers: The Last Knight Viral Teaser Released

Screen Shot 2016-05-16 at 6.47.22 PM

The fifth iteration of the love it or hate it franchise Transformers is coming soon, and the studio is wasting no time getting people pumped for it.

A new viral video showed up on the Transformers Twitter account with the caption "Something wicked this way comes #Transformers". The video shows a file with the number 21.63 Date: 10. The rest of the date is covered in black, but both numbers are underneath the United States State Department title and logo.

Along with the image, there is morse code, which via Screenrant translation, says "E I'm Coming For You May 31st."

Hopefully, we'll learn more about who the Transformers are up against on May 31st, but in the meantime its fun to speculate just who that might be. Smart money is on Unicron, who is aside from Megatron the franchise's most recognizable villain. It would make sense that Director Michael Bay would bring everyone back together for a villain of that scale, as Unicron consumes whole planets and stars on a regular basis. His alternate form isn't just a spaceship or a car, but an entire planet.


Seeing as Transformers: Age of Extinction teases more information about the creation of the Prime legacy, it would stand to reason that his opposition in the last knight would be the same enemy of Primus.

For all the flack he gets about these movies, I would still like to see Bay take on Unicron before he exits the franchise. Transformers: The Last Knight is slated for release on June 23rd, 2017.
