Nevermore of TFW2005 has discovered something rather peculiar with recent interviews and articles regarding Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, currently scheduled for release on June 26th 2009.

The production of the film has been cloaked in secrecy, but now it seems certain interviews and articles have been retro-actively edited in order to hide sensitive information about the film that has already been released online.

***SPOILERS***

Many of you may remember two articles, one published by Comic Book Resources here and the other by the MTV Movie Blog here, in which IDW writers Chris Mowry and Simon Furman spoke about the Transformers Movie sequel and how IDW was preparing for the film with it's upcoming comic book releases. In these interviews, Mowry and Furman confirmed that IDW does have a copy of the film's script and that the "Fallen" from the title of the film will indeed be the comic-book character The Fallen.

Now it appears that both articles have been edited and are missing any mention of the Fallen appearing in the film or of IDW possessing a copy of the film's script, which contradicts director Michael Bay's statement here that only a select few from Paramount and Dreamworks have seen the full script. The MTV article is also missing a brief description of the film's opening scene, as well as the confirmation that the autobot Arcee was going to appear.

To read quotes from the un-edited articles, check our original story here or read the quotes below.

:
"It's interesting that the second movie is using this character called the Fallen, which is a character that we created back in the Dreamwave days for this big series called 'The Dark Ages' which tapped into what had gone before. So these names and institutions like The 13 are rolling on into different incarnations."


:
We're going to explore the background of The Fallen — the main villain of the movie — as well as expand on the ‘Reign of Starscream’ story that we’re doing and tie everything in to what this next movie is going to be [...] The next movie starts out with just tons of action and there’s obviously going to be a lot of questions, so we’re hoping to answer some of those beforehand.”
