Contrary to all previous Transformers films, Bumblebee will only feature one heroic Autobot as the movie's protagonist. But that doesn't mean there will only be one villainous Decepticon for the yellow Transformer to deal with. Thanks to the release of an official photo of the film, we have our first look at two of the antagonists of the film.
Entertainment Weekly has exclusively revealed the "first look" picture, which features two Decepticons, one red and other blue, running in the desert. Going by the codename Shatter, the Transformer on the left is said to take the form of a "cherry-red Plymouth Satellie." As for the blue one, he is named Dropkick, and his vehicle form is that of an AMC Javelin. They will be voiced by Angela Bassett and Justin Theroux, respectively.
While we have names and an official look for these two, they are not the only Decepticons set to feature in the film. The trailer of Bumblebee featured a third Deception, one who happens to take on the form of a red fighter jet. Although this Transformer's identity has not been revealed yet, the prevailing theory is that he is the fan-favorite Starscream.
With three Decepticons and counting, Bumblebee and his human friends will have their hands more than full when the solo film hits theaters.
Directed by Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) from a script by Christina Hodson, Bumblebee stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Pamela Adlon, Jason Drucker, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos and Gracie Dzienny. The film is scheduled for release on Dec. 21.
