I’m pretty sure the face on the poster is Jetfire, who (possible spoiler warning) appears in the new movie as a SR-71 Blackbird who was abandoned by the Decepticons, and is ressurected by the Autobots. Could Jetfire be the “Fallen” in the title? So far everything has pointed to the flaming baddy from the Transformers comic books. What do you think?
Michael Bay has commented on the new poster on his website, taking a small swing at Terminator Salvation:
“Okay it’s time to turn up the heat on Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen. We’ve waited low in the weeds letting all the summer movies get their stuff out. We’ve seen the great year end movies, and watched the upcoming clips of the upcoming summer fare. We’ve seen certain movies coming out even try to duplicate Transformer size robots in their ads. Please, come on. Well, I promise you we will rock your world with Transformers 2. The fans wanted ROBOTS KICKING ASS – well we got it. Today we are releasing the teaser poster and soon the onslaught will continue with a steady drum beat until June 26th.”
