When we newsed the rumour about Liam Garrigan being in talks for a role in Transformers: The Last Knight - possible as King Arthur - we almost missed another sneaky rumour in the same Mashable.com piece, concerning cast member Santiago Cabrera. You'll remember when he was announced that we made sure to point out his acting history, and it looks like his past experience may be coming back to haunt him: according to the site, he will be playing none other than Merlin.

This leaves us a number of options: Merlin travels through time; Merlin reincarnates; this rumour is entirely unfounded; there is a mistake on Mashable; it's just a guy named Merlin. Let us know what you make of it in the Energon Pub!

Mark Wahlberg stars alongside Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Isabela Moner, Laura Haddock, Jerrod Carmichael, Gil Birmingham and Anthony Hopkins. Santiago Cabrera will co-star as Merlin, and many of your favorite Autobots and Decepticons will return as well.

In further Transformers: The Last Knight news, we have a new behind the scenes clip from the official Transformers movie Facebook page - as notified by Seibertronian overlord Burn - featuring the 'street kids' that we've seen accompany Isabela Moner, play around with director Michael Bay, and talking about getting chased by a Transformers. Check it out embedded below!

This movie's just getting weird. Like, they're building on the past film's rather inexplicable mention of Knights, but instead of that being about alien robots it's now literally King Arthur (because the G1 cartoon did something like that so it's automatically justified? and/or they gotta work in the whole "ancient thing on Earth is TRANSFORMERS related" plot again), with dragons and human wizards and everything. But there's still police car and crane robots somehow?

If it goes as weird as Scioli's TF vs G.I. Joe, I'm in.

Best quote all day.

and I'm looking forward to what all of this comes together to mean. We got a bunch of things here, I'm ready for them to be tied up

Focus? What is this """Focus"""?

Honestly I bet a lot of these things will be restricted to cameos so the movie isn't too cluttered. Merlin and Arthur being a flashback, Barricade being an opening/second scene capture/kill, etc.

Yeah, I second whoever it was that suggested this all might be more like "Man of Iron" than "A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court". And I'm all for that since "Man of Iron" is a fantastic story.

I disagree. I'm glad when Titan reprinted the G1 comics they left out those issues.

I'm officially ecstatic now. There hasn't been this big of an actual firefight since the end of ROTF.

Transformers movie fan SlyTF1 dropped by to let us know that Micheal Bay's Instagram account has been updated with a new video showing off a brand new camera that is being used on the set of Transformers: The Last Knight. The new camera is a small, handheld, high-quality camera and is considered the most advanced of its kind. They affectionately named the camera "Bayhem" and put it through its paces in the United Kingdom filming a big explosive scene. Check out the video by going to the link below!

Adding to the Bayhem post from yesterday, we have some more Transformers: The Last Knight tidbits to report, through various social media accounts from cast and crew. First up, a new name joins the cast: Doctor Who alumna Elizabeth Croft, as production continues in London.

SO EXCITED for my first day on @transformers! See you tomorrow @michaelbay @laurajhaddock #TransformersTheLastKnight


From another British cast member, Laura Haddock, we have a look at a new prop from the set, in the shape of a skull with a laurel crown, skewered by a sword. What does it mean? We have no idea, but take a look and speculate away in the Energon Pub!

And finally, if you happen to be in the UK and fancy your chances at being an extra on the Paramount and Michael Bay movie, why not take a look at the Casting call right here. What type of extra role? Vaguely historically inaccurate generic medieval soldiers and knights, on both the Saxon and Arthur's sides of a battle, but also main speaking roles and film crew spots - more info below!

The Paramount Pictures feature film “Transformers: The Last Knight” has completed filming in Detroit, and is moving on to London, England to continue filming. There is an official casting call seeking males over 16 years of age who have long hair and/or beards to portray medieval soldiers and knights in an epic battle sequence that will film between October 3rd and October 14, 2016. To be considered, all talent MUST have legal eligibility to work in the entertainment industry in London, and the documentation and resources are available here. “Transformers: The Last Knight”, will center on the previously unknown connection between giant alien robots from the planet Cybertron and the mythical court of fifth century English monarch King Arthur. This film is currently using the working title of “E75”.

Quick, Va'al, go tell Thew right away to be an extra. He may not have the hair, but the beard is epic.
