As production continues on Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight, director Michael Bay has taken it upon himself to introduce all of these old and new robots in disguise. Over the weekend, we got a new look at Autobots Drift and Sqweeks, and today we have another Autobot warrior, Crosshairs. We first met Crosshairs in 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction, and he appears to be quite identical in appearance from the previous blockbuster.
Director Michael Bay revealed the photo on Twitter last night, teasing that the only thing green about Crosshairs is his color, inferring that he is quite experienced in battle. In Transformers: Age of Extinction, Crosshairs' vehicular form was a lime green 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray. Since this Autobot is practically identical in appearance from the previous movie, it's believed that he will still transform into a newer model of the Corvette Stingray, but we don't know for sure. It also isn't known if John DiMaggio will return to voice Crosshairs or not.
The Last Knight centers on Optimus Prime, who has been searching through the cosmos for the Quintessons, the beings believed to be responsible for the creation of the Transformers race. Meanwhile back on Earth, Wahlberg's Cade Yeager will be facing a new alien threat that brings Josh Duhamel's Lennox and Tyrese Gibson's Epps back into duty. Isabela Moner is playing the female lead, though no character details have been revealed. Jerrod Carmichael (NBC's The Carmichael Show) has also come aboard in an unspecified supporting role, possibly serving as this sequel's comedy relief.
Over the past few weeks, we've seen glimpses of Autobots Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Hot Rod, Drift and Sqweeks, along with the Decepticons Megatron, Barricade and Onslaught. With shooting still under way, it remains to be seen how many more of these robots in disguise will be unveiled by Michael Bay over the next few weeks and months. We've also seen a number of explosive videos from the set in Detroit recently, and hopefully we'll get to see much more footage from the set soon as filming continues.
Michael Bay is directing from a script by Iron Man writers Art Marcum & Matt Holloway. They are joined by Black Hawk Down writer Ken Nolan on the screenplay. The team were part of Paramount's writer's room that generated several ideas for Transformers sequels and spinoffs. Original trilogy stars Josh Duhamel returns as Lennox along with Tyrese Gibson as Epps. While the actors starred in the original trilogy, Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, they didn't return for 2014's Transformers: Age of Extinction. Tae a look at Crosshairs from Transformers: The Last Night, arriving in theaters on June 23, 2017, along with a promo image from Transformers: Age of Extinction that shows how little Crosshairs has changed.
