Age of Extinction
James Avery Cast to Lend Voice to New Autobot In Transformers 3

By bwbm on Tuesday, February 02, 2010



A recent episode of Unscripted featured an interview with James Avery, best known for his role as Philip Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In the interview, Mr. Avery talks about his life and his career both on stage and on television, but the most interesting tidbit (for us transfans anyway) is the blurb on the right of the video.

The blurb claims that Mr. Avery will be lending his voice to Silverbolt, a new Autobot in a little film called Transformers 3.

This role was never indicated by him in either of the videos available on the interview page, so we will have to take this as a rumor for now, although there really is not a reason to write that information unless Mr. Avery told them.

Transformers 3 has been rumored to start filming in May and possibly in 3-D. Locations scouted for filming include Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C., and Miami.

I donno everybody but if this is true, I'm more thinking that Uncle Phil will be getting the Alpha Trion treatment. I think I may be the only one thinking this though. Would be awesome to see that happen.

He was a Concord jet. I seriously hope he is the Arealbot leader and I hope Superion is more agile and not an ape like Devastator was. Superion would have rocket thrusters all over him so he should be able to stand straight up and move well. Remember in TF1 though they used the name Devastator f... read more

Actually you're both wrong! He'll be movie based so he won't be anything like any Silverbolt we've ever seen before! And he'll probably be a car!

I look forward to him throwing Mudflap out the front door of the mansion after Mudflap makes a joke about his weight/wife.

Perhaps emboldened by the amazing success of Marvel's take on a shared continuity for its increasingly numerous movies and now TV projects, Hasbro has made known their plans to try this approach with the Transformers movie series. But what can we expect from this direction, and how might it affect Transformers 5? Keep reading for some thoughts.
In what may be remembered as the least surprising news of 2015, it sounds like Michael Bay will be returning again for the next installment in the Transformers film series. At CinemaCon, Vice Chairman of Paramount Rob Moore was said to have "promised" theatre owners attending the event that Bay was already in the process of developing the next Transformers movie. It was previously reported that Bay had opted to take on a different project which would keep him from directing a fifth Transformers movie. Keep reading for more!
Entertainment Weekly confirms that Hasbro has hired writer Akiva Goldsman to head up the writing team that will work on expanding the Transformers movie world into a broader cinematic franchise. CEO Brian Goldner revealed this in Hasbro's quarterly earnings conference call yesterday, and added that Transformers 5 is expected in 2017. A director is not mentioned, and while Michael Bay was named in connection with the project in rumors it's entirely logical that the financially successful director would be consulted on what "his" franchise would do next.

Genetic of TFND has come through again with a huge gallery of photos of Optimus Prime Ultimate Edition, the most heavily equipped and painted version of Transformers 1-3 Optimus Prime you will ever see. It has a ridiculous amount of equipment, all storable in its Murder Truck mode. And even articulated fingers - keep reading to see it all!
The TransformersAsia Facebook page has posted a wealth of images of the new Ultimate Optimus Prime, showing off what almost has to be the definitive version of Optimus as he appeared in Transformers (2007), Revenge Of The Fallen, and Dark Of the Moon. Featuring comparisons to the previous APS-01 release, Ultimate Prime features lots more paint and a tremendous loadout of weapons. The figure's due for release on April 24th but in the meantime you can keep reading to see the mirrored gallery of 43 images!
