Thanks to a Tweet from the man himself, and thanks to several notifications from Seibertron.com members, we have word that David Sobolov, the voice of Beast Wars Badass Depthcharge and Transformers: Prime's mad scientist and Predacon clone creator Shockwave, will be voicing a Transformer in the upcoming Bumblebee Movie! The tweet comes from David Sobolov himself, with express approval from Paramount themselves, though he does not mention which Transformer he will voice. With is voice acting career already showing he can voice some great characters with a nice mix of cynicism, sarcasm, intelligence, and scowling, he is sure to impress in the upcoming movie, whatever his role may be.

You can check out his tweet quoted below, and sound off and speculate in the comments section below on just who Sobolov will be voicing in the movie!

#Transformers fans... @ParamountPics has given me the ok to reveal I’m playing a role in the upcoming epic @bumblebeemovie! As of now I’m not authorized to tell you my character’s name. More news about that soon! Who do you think it is? @transformers @tfw2005 @seibertroncom

Though, notice he doesn't specify "voice" role, just a "role". Though it probably will be a voice role (*cough*gottabeBlitzwing*cough*) it could be neat if we were to get David Sobolov in live action.

Funnily enough Blitzwing was the one who popped into my head as well.

That has happened before. Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Charlie Adler, Tom Kenny, Kevin Michael Richardson, etc.

Following our last post that David Sobolov is in Bumblebee, we now have confirmation that he voices triple changer Blitzwing, as many people theorized. This news comes from his Twitter in a post. In the Tweet, he thanks Travis and Paramount for allowing him to work on another Transformers project.

#Transformers fans... It’s time to reveal I’m the voice of Blitzwing in @bumblebeemovie ! Thank you Travis Knight and @ParamountPics for this exciting chance to work on another epic @transformers adventure.


For those wondering, David has done voice work in the past for Transformers, namely, Beast Wars Depth Charge and Prime Shockwave.

Does this make you more excited for the movie? Are you happy that Blitzwing will be voiced with a Transformers veteran? let us know in the Pub forum's below!

No, that's Starscream. I don't care what they say it looks nothing like Blitzwing lol.

I'm really hoping that all this "It's Blitzwing, not Starscream" thing is just the movie staff trying to pull a prank on us.

unless they state it is starscream and not blitzwing, I will be waiting until its out on DVD. Screamer would be the only reason why I would watch a Bee movie.

Glad to see people aren't over that.... anyways.... i'm actually pumped to hear him voice a movie bot, glad they got someone with past TF experience for a movie bot role :D

So Peter Cullen, Frank Welker and Leonard Nimoy don't count ;-)?

Also we need to understand that this is Blitzwing... As little as it makes sense (though he also turns up in the movie prequel comic looking like this). If the rumours are true about this, then you won't want him to be starscream anyway as he's rumoured to die right near the beginning. After all Shatter and Dropkick are the main villains of the film.

Well either way I just like seeing more voice actors from tf projects join the movies, since they usually end up being more memorable, no matter how long they last.

So will this Blitzwing actually be a triple changer? Enquiring minds want to know....

Well he is in the comics from his depiction, but we'll have to wait and see with the movie.

It is most likely he will be a triple changer, in one of the prequel comics released by IDW for the Bumblebee movie, he turns into a jet and a tank. Now things could have changed in the 20 year gap but it's always possible.

Movie trailers are designed to be as misleading as possible, they'll probably revise the design to closely match Blitzwing.

Lol, no. People saw quite a bit of movie footage and he looks just like this in robot mode.

Met this guy at DragonCon -- super cool guy, and I'm glad he's getting more work.

Showing up in the US, after the commercial cut-outs for stores selling the toys, we're starting to see the same promotional material appear in cinemas and theatres for the Transformers Bumblebee Movie - and thanks to a short clip from Twitter user Octovaitor, we have an close up look at one of the animated ones too!

You can check out the clip below, as Bumblebee moves its illuminated blue eyes in the standee, over the title of the movie and the 'Christmas' release date bracket. Give it a look, as well as the official render of the same image, and join the conversation about the movie in the Energon Pub Discussion Boards!

I saw one of the displays at the Century City AMC in Los Angeles last night. It’s big, probably the size of a pickup truck. I think the eyes are a little video screen.

Sorry the escalator’s in the shot, it was too close to avoid.
