Michael Bay Taunts Hardcore Transformers Fans with Sequel Title
Transformers 2 has a title, and it’s not Transformers 2. No, Hasbro has announced the film will be called Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which has hardcore ‘Formers fans in a tizzy because of this guy:
See, he’s the Fallen. In Transformers lore?and only the comics portion of it, mind you, the Fallen has never appeared in any Transformers cartoon?he’s one of the original 13 Transformers built by Primus, but he turned evil and decided to serve Unicron. He was trapped in-between dimensions, but was once freed and tried to awaken Primus, thus effectively summoning Unicron to Cybertron, where he would assumable eat the shit out of the planet. It’s kind of neat, actually.
So is Bay actually tapping into hardcore authentic Transformers mythos for the sequel? Of course not! He’s Michael Bay, for chrissake! I see two possible answers here: 1) He just thought the name “The Fallen” sounded cool, and it’s going to refer to the returning Megatron, or 2) Bay’s going to make up his own, intensely stupid version of the Fallen for the movie. Do you honestly think the guy who turned Bumblebee into a Camaro that speaks only in commercial jingles gives a shit about your precious continuity?
