Megatron to Return in “Transformers: The Last Knight”

Megatron from Transformers

With production for the fifth film in the Transformers franchise underway, we get a first sneak peek at the film's upcoming villain.

Director/producer Michael Bay took to Instagram this week to tease the return of infamous Decepticon leader, Megatron, who will apparently return for Transformers: The Last Knight.

In a short clip, he offers a glimpse at the new look the character will sport in the upcoming film, though it doesn't exactly reveal much. The image focuses on Megatron's purple-hued eyes, set against the backdrop of guttural, robotic breathing.

It's starting. This week production. Megatron is back. #transformers #decepticons#

Production is currently underway in Cuba.

Transformers: The Last Knight is currently scheduled to hit theaters June 23, 2017.
