The report also states that Anthony has been firmly in the sights for the role from the moment Caple joined the movie. If everything is finalised, it's expected that he will do co-star chemistry tests when more casting is confirmed.

This movie is expected to be the first of four scripts to be completed, with a date set for next year. It currently has the working title of Beast Alliance.

What do you think of this casting news? Excited to see what Anthony will bring to the table and how he'll interact with the Autobots?

Looking at his filmography,the only thing I seen with him is Godzilla:King of Monsters.
He seens a nice guy.

I showed my wife this (she's a huge Hamilton fan), and her response was: "he's an asshole, that is the opposite type of news you want for a movie"

He's been faaaaaaaaaar more prominant in the theatre/broadway scene. This would be his major jump into films.

So is this guy going to be a human lead or VO?

Given the human-led focus of these films, most likely the human lead.

I see. I was curious. From what has been said of his theatre background, it might lend itself more to voice work than onscreen acting. Like a Jazz, Blurr, Wheelie or Wreck-Gar.

Nah, definitely human lead from whats been said elsewhere as supposedly, Optimus Prime helps him find the right path. I'm thinking he'll be a bit like Ant Man from the MCU, just instead of Michael Sheen, you have a giant robot that turns into a truck.

Just when you thought they were learning a lesson from the human interactions in the Bumblebee movie. That sounds like a massive step backwards.

Plus there was a reason Douglas as Pym was given a supporting role. Because of what the character is forever known for..

Greetings Seibertronians! Following on from the announcement that Angel Manuel Soto was helming a brand new Transformers movie, unconnected to any of the other movies currently being worked on, he dropped in on the Molusco TV Podcast and while there, dropped some information about his upcoming project.

Image

Thanks to the fine folk over at TFW2005, and in particular, the user Black Convoy, we have what he said translated, and he made some interesting comments about his movie:

Mr. Soto stated that the premises of his new Transformers movie will take place outside of United States. The story does not involve the military.

The plot is stated to be completely outside of the Bayverse.

Additionally, the director described the inception of the movie in question. He got the call from Paramount after the 2020 Sundance Film Festival where he showcased Charm City Kings. The Los Angeles production company expressed their interest to make a new and different Transformers project with him. Angel Manuel Soto personally pitched the idea to Paramount & Hasbro. The two companies liked the idea and gave a greenlight.


The Soto Transformers Project is still in an earlier stage than the upcoming DC Blue Beetle movie (also directed by Angel Manuel Soto).

The director is planning to humanize the Transformers characters on his movie (personality-wise and not design-wise). He want the robots to speak like us, in a natural way. That’s the way he remembers Transformers and the reason we felt identified with the original Transformers. He believes that when you humanize the characters, you get closer to them, love them. When there’s a human approach, you create a connection with them. If not, they are just lifeless robots.

Angel Manuel Soto is surprised to see all the reaction of fans about him directing this movie. He doesn’t want to let anybody down. While he can’t speak much details, he says that the budget is over 50 milliion dollars and it’s a challenge to manage it. He really wants to bring as much of the movie as he can to Puerto Rico.

Elsewhere, Mr. Soto stated that he always wanted to make a movie on Transformers; which he enjoyed during his childhood. Growing up, his father struggled to provide for his family but bought him Transformers toys which he loved and cherished.


Are you intrigued about this movie, knowing these tidbits?

This sounds way too vague,you could describe any of the new Transformers projects like that.

No I'm not at all intrigued. This is laughable. The new movies will be garbage. And the sad thing is the bar they need to clear isn't even high.

-- Not related to the Bayverse. Design-wise, it's irrelevant, but story-wise, it means a lot.

-- No USA, no military. AT LAST!

-- The Transformers will have more personality and feel more "human". Don't tell me they will be the MAIN CHARACTERS?

Well, my hopes are certainly up. :BOWDOWN:

The no military thing is 100% a step forward.

. He believes that when you humanize the characters, you get closer to them, love them. When there’s a human approach, you create a connection with them. If not, they are just lifeless robots.


That however, doesn't say "fan of Transformers" to me.

You mean like Skids and Mudflap from Revenge of the Retcon? Yeah, that's just what was missing. "Humanized" alien robots. Screw all that plot and good writing nonsense, what this movie needs is Optimus Prime cussing and using street slang. :roll:

I can't wait to not watch this.

They seem to have this habit with the Live Action films of garnering good will. Then wiping it away with marketing...

Yeah, but the diehards will continue to throw their money at it, ensuring nothing but similar garbage in the future.

Sounds like he's not screwing with beast wars so it may be the better of the two planned films.

Don't automatically assume "humanizing robots" automatically mean bad writing. The article clearly stated this:
He want the robots to speak like us, in a natural way. That’s the way he remembers Transformers and the reason we felt identified with the original Transformers.

Assuming the director is not a 15 years old kid, the "Transformers he remember" must be from the cartoons, not ROTF.

We just have to wait and see if the writing match his intentions before casting hasty judgement.
