MICHAEL Bay has revealed the identity of the new villain in Transformers: The Last Knight.

Well, new isn’t exactly the word! The film’s main nemesis will in fact be a re-designed Megatron, the villainous robot from the first three Transformers movies. So, not so new!

Teasing the news via Instagram, the director said: “It’s starting. This week production. Megatron is back!”

The movie has already commenced principal photography with a sequence in Cuba but will return to the US, and in particular Detroit, later this week.

So, who is The Last Knight of the film’s title? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the Transformers movie mythology does include ‘The Knights of Cybertron’, a group tasked with defending the all-powerful All Spark from being used for illegal purposes.

And given that plans were recently revealed to build a cross-franchise Hasbro movie universe, the title could mean that ROM – whose subtitle is ‘The Space Knight’ – might be introduced into proceedings earlier than expected.

Transformers: The Last Knight is due to open in cinemas on June 23, 2017 and will see Bay reunite with cast members Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel.
