Transformers: The Last Knight's Megatron is Basically Ultron on Steroids
The original Transformers movie is celebrating its 30th birthday this year, but it doesn't look like Michael bay and his team will be paying homage to the title that kick-started the Transformers empire into what it is today. Bay's latest franchise project, Transformers: The Last Knight, is in the middle of production right now, and to get people jazzed for it they've been releasing images of some of the movie's key characters. 

Megatron is up there with Optimus Prime when it comes to iconic Transformers characters, so it's fair to say that many fans will be a little upset when they see what he's going to look like when he makes his return to the big screen next year. While previous big screen Megatrons haven't exactly nailed the character's original look, this latest iteration will feel a little bit too familiar for anybody who happened to see Avengers: Age of Ultron.....and that's not a good thing.


If there's anything positive to say about this particular Megatron, it's probably the fact that he's a little more put together than his predecessors, and he does have an arm cannon, so there's that, too. Unfortunately, though, this really does just look like Ultron was pissed about getting his metal butt handed to him by the Avengers, so he decided to get jacked and stick a cannon on his arm. Not the most original of looks, Mr. Bay.

Transformers: The Last Knight is released on June 23rd 2017
