First ‘Bumblebee’ Reactions Roll Out With Positive Results

Bumblebee Movie Transformers Hailee Steinfeld John CenaThe Transformers live-action film franchise may be a box office juggernaut, but when it comes to its reception with critics, it’s not so warm. It seems as though with each new entry since the first film in 2007, the reception somehow gets progressively worse. However, the newest spinoff Bumblebee may change that tide.

Bumblebee rolls out into theaters just in time for the holiday season, and some have had the opportunity to have an early look at the film. So far, reactions are pretty positive on the new standalone film starring the beloved Autobot:

Finally! After years of Michael Bay churning out all of these Transformers films, it’s nice to see someone else like Travis Knight put their own spin on the franchise. Hopefully, this will bode well for upcoming entries in the series, given that Bumblebee is some sort of a reboot in the franchise.

Are you excited from these early reactions to Bumblebee? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the Transformers franchise.

Directed by Travis Knight from a script written by Christina Hodson, the film stars Hailee Steinfeld, Pamela Adlon, John Cena, Stephen Schneider, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Ian Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, and Grace Dzienny.

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

Bumblebee will be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.

Tony Stark Is Adrift In Space After His Showdown With Thanos

Avengers Endgame Robert Downey Jr. Iron ManFollowing the showdown on Titan, Tony Stark and Nebula were left alone after Thanos eradicated the rest of the heroes who were present. While some assumed that the genius billionaire would find a way to return to Earth, it appears Tony is adrift in space on a vessel with limited supplies and oxygen.

Nebula Is With Tony

Avengers Endgame Nebula Marvel StudiosWhile Tony Stark may be lost in space with no chance of being rescued, it appears he will be accompanied by Nebula, the only other survivor of the showdown on Titan. How the two characters are getting along in what could be their final days remains unknown, though Nebula appears to be faring better than her new companion.

Scott Lang Escaped The Quantum Realm

Ant-Man Avengers EndgameDuring the first post-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang found himself trapped inside the Quantum Realm after his friends were erased by the Thanos snap and some speculated that the Avengers would have to rescue him. However, it appears Scott Lang managed to escape the realm on his own and brought the van containing the way to the alternate dimension with him.

Possible Time Jump

Avengers Endgame Marvel_Studios_Captain America Chris EvansDuring the final moments of the new trailer, Captain America and Black Widow view a video of Scott Lang asking to be let inside Avengers headquarters. Captain America wonders if the message is old, meaning that some time may have passed since Thanos' decimation and Scott's escape from the Quantum Realm.

Hawkeye Is Definitely Ronin

Avengers Endgame Hawkeye Ronin

After months of speculation, the Avengers: Endgame trailer essentially confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns. Furthermore, Captain America line about losing family being said over footage of Clint Barton's appearance suggests that the archer's family perished in the decimation and their deaths prompted him to take on a new identity.

They Know Spider-Man Is MissingAvengers Endgame Marvel Studios Spider-ManDuring the trailer, Bruce Banner can be seen assessing a list of victims of Thanos' decimation and it appears the team knows Spider-Man is among the missing. This may come as a surprise to some considering Spider-Man was with Tony Stark during the events of Infinity War.

Captain America's Winter Soldier Suit is Back

Captain America Avengers Endgame Winter SoldierAfter returning in Avengers: Infinity War with a full beard and disheveled costume, Captain America will return to a more familiar look that includes the suit from The Winter Soldier.

Thanos Is Still Wearing The Burned Gauntlet

Avengers Endgame Thanos Marvel StudiosAfter Thanos acquired all six Infinity Stones and used them to accomplish his mission, the gauntlet he used to harness their power was severely damaged. However, it appears the Mad Titan continues to wear the worn gauntlet, perhaps in an effort to ensure no one else can wield the power of the stones and undo his actions.

The Avengers Have A Plan

Avengers Endgame

Though all may seem hopeless, our heroes aren't heading into their next showdown with Thanos without a plan. Hopefully, it will work, because Steve Rogers certainly seems concerned about what they will do if the Avengers fail for a second time.
