Age of Extinction
Transformers 4 Villain and Voice Actor Revealed - It's Not Who You Think

By Ender on Monday, April 01, 2013



The casting news just keeps coming, this time with a spoiler concerning what villains we can expect to fill the void after Dark of the Moon’s summary executions. In a move only this interpretation of the Transformers could justify, Sir Patrick Stewart has been tapped to play none other than Renegade Leader Cy-Kill. That’s right, as in the Go-Bot. Hasbro has owned the Go-Bots since 1991. Is this the “It’s not a reboot” shake up Bay has been promising?

“We’re delighted to welcome Patrick to the Transformers family.” Bay said on his forum, Shoot for the Wallet. “Let’s hope this villain whines less than our last one. “ Probably a reference to Hugo Weaving’s dismissive comments towards the franchise last year. Sir Patrick is likely to continue the Bayformers Tradition of British voiced villains who have no idea what movie they’re in.

Possibly bigger news is the character Stewart will be portraying, Cy-Kill, who is, in fact, not a transformer at all. Contrary to appearance, Bay is not totally oblivious to the Transformer/Go-bot dichotomy; he had this to say on the subject.

“We’re really excited to bring the continuities together like this, I know some people won’t be on board with this re-imagining of the Transformers universe, but we really looked at all the available big bad guys in the mythos, and this was the only one that turned into a motorcycle. I have some motorcycles, they’re awesome. “

I wonder if he made Sir Patrick had to wash one of them to get into the movie. In case you didn't notice, this has been presented to by the April Fools department at ENI. :P
