Can we just take a minute to acknowledge how weird it is that there is a Nazi controversy tied to a Transformers movie? All right, let’s get to the story.
Last week, we learned that Transformers: The Last Knight would be bringing Hitler and Nazis into the equation somehow. This information came to light because the sequel from director Michael Bay is currently filming in the United Kingdom, and one of their locations included Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England, the home of Winston Churchill. However, it had been draped in giant Nazi flags and surrounded by their artillery and SS stormtroopers. This upset some veterans groups, and it stirred up quite a controversy across the pond.
Now Michael Bay has responded to the Transformers The Last Knight Nazi controversy, and in doing so, he has revealed another key character we’ll see in the movie. Find out more below. Read More »
