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.

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?
