ROTF Story Revealed30/07/2008
Early rumors were that the title insinuated the story would center around a character by the name of The Fallen and now MTV has learned that to be true thanks to the team at IDW Publishing who is publishing a series of comic books to bridge the gap between the first film and the second.
"[We're going to] explore the background of The Fallen — the main villain of the movie — as well as expand on the 'Reign of Starscream' story that we're doing and tie everything in to what this next movie is going to be," explained writer Chris Mowry to MTV, who partners on the book with artist Alex Milne. "The next movie starts out with just tons of action and there's obviously going to be a lot of questions, so we're hoping to answer some of those beforehand."
Those that remember the finale to Transformers remember a speech given by Optimus Prime calling for the Autobots to head to Earth in an effort to live among the humans and protect them while Starscream flew into space following the death of Megatron. Apparently Starscream's character will be a bit different than what fans of the first generation of "Transformers" are used to, Mowry told MTV, "He's more of like a military guy. So in ‘Destiny' we're going to see a lot more involvement with [the backgrounds of] Prime and Megatron, [as well as] Cybertron's history and how that affects the present day. It all centers around the plot of the sequel which I obviously can't get into. It'll be explained but you'll see a lot more expansion of their characters and their motivations and their destinies, if you will."
A few actual story details are also revealed in the article (found here) and /Film found out according to screenwriter Roberto Orci at Don Murphy's message board that a teaser trailer may be seen in front of Eagle Eye on September 26.
