New ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Image Reveals Another Returning Decepticon

The character was last seen being killed off at the hands of Tyrese Gibson’s Robert Epps and his team in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but it looks like Barricade will be back in the latest installment of the franchise, The Last Knight. The Decepticon’s upgraded look was recently revealed on Twitter by star Josh Duhamel, who is also returning to the franchise as Colonel Lennox. You can check out the tweet below.

Here’s a higher-res version of the image (click to expand):

The car looks pretty cool, but it’s hard to get excited by the vehicle form of a Transformer. Not long ago, director Michael Bay unveiled the brand new look of Bumblebee, who’s actually getting his own spin-off in 2018. I’m guessing that we’ll be seeing one reveal per week from now on, so I wonder who’s next. Perhaps Megatron?

Aside from Duhamel and all the returning Transformers, The Last Knight will also be bringing back Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager. He’ll be joined by franchise newcomers Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael, as well as Sir Anthony Hopkins. Yes, you read that right, he’s actually in this movie. Tyrese Gibson has expressed interest in returning to the franchise, so it’s probably a matter of time until he’s confirmed as part of the cast.

Production is currently underway in Cuba, so we’ll be hearing quite a lot about this movie for the next couple months. For now, Transformers: The Last Knight is set to hit theaters on June 23, 2017. What do you guys think? Are you excited for this one?

    And we care about this Barricade why? He’s a car with no personality like the majority of the Bayformers…they could’ve called him Cyclonus it would’ve made zero difference.

      He had plenty of personality with his short screen time in the first movie. Not just the way he talks (like a hard-ass “bad cop”) but his “To Punish And Enslave Tattoo”.


    We can go to a car show, if we wanted to look at cars. The main appeal for TF’s is the robot’s personalities. Most of these TF’s have none to speak of.

      I agree with you soon much

      This have been less true with every Transformers movie. The 4th seems to emphasise the different characters of the named robots more, while also making them more visually distinct.

    I’m glad you put Mark Wahlberg’s character name in there. I kept thinking it was Cole Power.

    Oh, good, Barricade’s back…….. (extra dots for sarcastic emphasis). I’d way rather see that again than introducing new Decepticons like Scourge, or Cyclonus, or Skywarp, or Thundercracker, or Blitzwing, or Astrotrain, or one of the other combiner sets……….
