TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT (2017): Hitler Said To Be Villain

Transformers The Last Knight ProductionAdolf Hitler Reported To Be A Villain In Transformers: The Last Knight

Production details for Transformers: The Last Knight suggest the infamous German dictator will somehow figure into the film’s story.

The rumor was kindled by reports that Nazi flags were being raised at one of the movie’s production sites in Great Britain. The news provoked a minor controversy as the site in question was none other than a former home of Sir Winston Churchill, who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during World War II. Seeking to defuse the controversy, director Michael Bay explained that the move was not intended to disrespect the British leader and that the movie in fact treats him as a “big hero”:

A Paramount Pictures film, Transformers: The Last Knight is confirmed to also include the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager, Josh Duhamel as Lieutenant Colonel Lennox, Tyrese Gibson as Robert Epps, Stanley Tucci as Joshua Joyce, as well as a new role for Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Santiago Cabrera also have roles, as Liam Carrigan (Once Upon a Time), who plays King Arthur.

It is unknown whether or not Hitler himself will appear on screen or, if he does, who might be playing the role.

A few of the titular robots in disguise have also been confirmed to return, including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Drift, Hound, Crosshairs, Hot Rod, and Sqweeks for the Autobots, with Megatron, Barricade, and Onslaught for the Decepticons.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
