The guys at JoBlo caught an interview with Transformers director Michael Bay in the latest print edition of Empire, in which Bay says of Megatron, “He’s not in this movie. That’s not misinformation. The tank design you may have seen is just Hasbro coming up with a new toy.” So there you go, no more Megatron.
Does this mean that Starscream will be getting more play? Maybe the Constructicons or some other Cybertronian badasses. I was pleasantly surprised by the last movie. Let’s hope the sequel doesn’t slide into craptown.
