Well, I didn't see THAT coming! Not to be outdone by the news that Megatron would be returning for TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT, today we have confirmation that Sir Anthony Hopkins will be joining the cast! There's no word on what role he'll play, if he'll be voicing a Transformer, or if he'll go head to head with Megatron himself, but the following was posted on the official Twitter account of the film.

Transformers The Last Knight Anthony Hopkins

The man, the myth, the legend – help us welcome Sir Anthony Hopkins to the #transformers universe.

I can't even pretend to know what I'm talking about when it comes to Transformers, although I remember enjoying the first film, and playing the last film on Netflix while I was cleaning . . . the latter of which took up more of my interest than the movie. However, Michael Bay knows how to work in an explosion or two, so there's always hope that one of these movies turns out to be fun, isn't there? ISN'T THERE?!?

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT will open on June 23, 2017.

Michael Bay probably thinks he found a new Sean Connery

Unfortunately, not even the great Sir Anthony Hopkins can make up for the shittiness of Michael Bay. Im sure this movie will do just fine at the box-office because all the other ones have, but it will also be terrible.

The caliber of actors that Michael Bay ropes into his soulless money grabbing productions never ceases to amaze me. It doesn't surprise me that the actors take the parts because, let's be honest, they gotta pay the bills. What really baffles me is why even cast such acclaimed actors in a movie like this? I mean it's not like you're giving them a meaty role where they're talent's actually going to do any good and it's not like the core demographic for these movies care how many Oscar nominees

I just don't get it.

Bay works with some very good actors...

and turns them to shit. If Hopkins plays a transformer he must be named Hannibal Prime.

Yes!

There is one good thing about this franchise, Bay always assembles an impressive cast. John Turturro, Bernie Mac, Stanley Tuccii, Kelsey Grammar,Frances McDormand, etc.

He'll be voicing Optimus Prime's dad...

Only to turn against him and reveal he is weak for protecting the humans aka the same plot device that was used in Transformers 3 only this time, it will end with Optimus sacrificing himself like he did in Transformers 2 and 4 only to eventually comeback and defeat his dad and Megatron who have joined forces similar to the plot of Transformers 2 and 3.
