Thanks to IDW Publishing, we’ve now gotten confirmation that the main villain of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (June 26, 2009) will indeed be The Fallen. The company announced a five-part prequel miniseries entitled Transformers: Destiny that will bridge the gap between the 2007 film and the 2009 sequel. Here’s what the company told MTV (emphasis mine):
“[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, 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.”
Transformers: Destiny will be released this December.
