Director Michael Bay is hard at work filming ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ his fifth film in the franchise, and has kept a pretty tight lid on the whole affair, but he recently tweeted an image that teased the introduction of yet another Robot In Disguise.

Onslaught is an old school Transformer, from Generation One. He is the leader of the Combaticons, military vehicles with missile-firing actions. Onslaught is more of a cerebral character, who prefers to formulate battle plans and strategies then have his Combaticons carry them out. “The mind is the greatest weapon,” he thinks. Ironically, he does however combine with them to form the giant battle ‘bot Bruticus, who is considerably less intelligent than Onslaught is on his own.
‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ sees the return of Big Bad Megatron, so there should be some interesting dynamics between these two villains.
No word on whether the other Combaticons would also appear, but the Transformers combiners have always been a crowd-pleaser, so it would make sense. The Constructicons appeared in a groan-inducing role in ‘Transformers 2’.
‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ directed by Michael Bay stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock, Santiago Cabrera and Anthony Hopkins. It rolls into theaters on May 28, 2017.
