Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback confirmed for new Transformers film

A new Transformers film is coming in 2022 starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback in lead roles. While Paramount Pictures, Hasbro, eOne and director Steven Caple Jr. are yet to reveal details about the film, here are some other vital information.

First, the confirmed lead actors, who are longtime friends, will be appearing together in a film for the first time. They were picked differently and got the roles due to their talent. According to Screen Rant, Ramos was the first confirmed cast before Fishback impressed at auditions and got co-star privileges.

Ramos has convinced cinema-goers of his talent in high-profile performances like “Hamilton” and “In the Heights”. The same can also be said about Fishback’s outing in “Judas and the Black Messiah” and “Project Power”. Their combined talent will come to the fore as they will likely be required to carry the future of this mammoth film series on their back.

They may also not have to do much because fans, who criticise many of the Transformers films, complain about ‘humans’ getting more screentime than the Autobots that the film is supposed to be about. Science fiction fans are an unforgiving crowd, and Transformers loyalists are no different.

With Darnell Metayer and Josh Peters developing an earlier script by “Bumblebee” writer Joby Harold, the upcoming Transformers film is one to expect. Steven Caple Jr.’s “Creed II” performance is yet to be topped, and he will be looking to market himself as a master of the art and not a one-hit-wonder.

Despite the film franchise getting its fair share of criticisms, it is still among the most successful film series ever. For a film series running from 2007 to 2018, having six titles and a massive following, it will put pressure on actors and the production team to bring their A-game to this one.

Critical responses can also be tricky though …

Consider that 2018 “Bumblebee” was the most liked Transformers film, with overwhelmingly positive reviews, yet, it has the poorest Box office revenue among them. It made a measly $468 million, which is dwarfed by “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction” which made $1.12 billion and $1.10 billion, respectively.

Some inside sources reveal that the film will be more of a “Bumblebee” sequel than the regular Transformer film franchise. However, there are also plans to develop “Transformers: Beast Wars” and another stand-alone film directed by Puerto Rican film director Angel Manuel Soto. This means that Paramount Pictures will release three films about the alien machine race in the next couple of years.
