TF2: "Revenge of the Fallen" - More than just a subtitle...

Posted by:

As we have reported here and here, The full title of the sequel to Michael Bay's 2007 blockbuster Transformers is "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. This has led to much speculation of whether this means the "fallen" Decepticons from the first film (namely Megatron) would return in the sequel with a vengeance, or if the character from The War Within comics known as "The Fallen" would make an appearance.

Well, a recent article at may shine some light on this rumor, though it is still being debated. According to this article, the character of "The Fallen" might be what the title is referring to, rather than the first film's dead 'Cons.

To see the article click here.

Remember that it is still early to say for sure that this is confirmed, so please be cautioned on believing what you read.

I doubt it is the character.How could you have revenge?For What?He wasn't in the first film.

Every one's keep's saying he was not in the first movie so how can The Fallen get revenge. Who said's The Fallen has AnyThing to do with the first movie. Maybe The Fallen is getting Revenge for what happen to him on Cybertron & he's come's to earth to get Revenge. There are going to be like 10 new Transformers in the next movie that had nothing to do with the first movie. From what i know about war within The Fallen was locked away for year's. Hmmmmmm. Maybe that's somthing to get Revenge for.

Lawson is correct. The Fallen could be coming back to get revenge for something that happened on Cybertron eons ago. I hope it is turely The Fallen. He would make a very intriguing villain for the next movie, and would definitely make for an incredible screen presence. Imagine how he would appear. Can you picture this hulking metal monster all aflame in live-action? It would be intense. Does this mean there might be mention of Primus and/or Unicron? Maybe, maybe not. It would definitely add some more backstory to the Transformers though, and that's a good thing.

Something tells me that The Fallen will be in it to bring back u know who.

its been confirmed that i will be hoping to see the fallen in TF2
Jumpercliff said,  - 2008-06-08 17:24:36
Fallen in the movie? Well, at least for the first time he'll be out of the comics and have a voice.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-06-08 17:40:41
"Dogzilla" get's the mega prize. I never would've guessed he was right when I first read his speculation that mabye "The Fallen" character could be in the film... wow.

Time to pull out my old War Within II series. I don't remember it that well. All I can remember is that didn't like it as much as War Within, series 1.

Wow, nice find SB!

Seems to me that the misinformation machine is in full operation. Does anyone really believe Michael Bay or anyone close the film would allow this many leaks? Silly fleshlings.
Tyscream said,  - 2008-06-08 21:09:22
Hmm... Well, KilledbyDeath, theres a 50 50 chance here. It COULD be true, or just be fake. I'm going with true for certain reasons.

p.s. Don't delete my comments or less you really need to.

I want to know who the R8 will be.
kntstar said,  - 2008-06-09 05:39:52
If indeed this is the fallen from trasformers mythos, then it can only mean one thing. That Unicron also exist in the continuity.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-06-09 08:24:39
Re: the Audi R8
I want to know who he is too! I also want to know what color it'll be! A certain someone I know very well has one of those on order at the local dealership. Well, he's ordered it already, he's on a waitlist now. I want to help steer him to make sure he gets the car int the *correct* color now.

Off topic, but I went back to my Wal-Mart Supercenter today and bought all six Deluxes, Lugnut, and the "Battle Begins" set.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-06-09 14:24:26
knstar i like what you said. but im thinking, if the Fallen is in TF2, then he'll be practically unstoppable... as much as i would love to see megs again i think that it will be the Fallen, seeing that in most movies new villains are introduced, rather than bringing back the old defeated ones.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-06-09 14:50:46
WHOA! something i have never seen before but very nice! i am not sure if that was intentional or if anybody else has seen that before but it is very nice! if people are wondering what im talking about take a good look at the background of this site... notice anything? HOW LONG HAS THAT BEEN THERE?
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-06-09 15:00:35
Quite a LONG time, Autobutt.
ilovetransformers said,  - 2008-06-09 16:19:57
yeh. even before the show came out
Perceptor said,  - 2008-06-09 16:57:35
>>Off topic, but I went back to my Wal-Mart Supercenter today and bought all six Deluxes, Lugnut, and the "Battle Begins" set.
Nice. All the deluxes are particularly awesome.
I could live w/o the "Battle Begins" set, tho the G1 paint scheme of OP is pretty awesome.
I myself am feelin' pretty bummed about my Starscream. That damn blue color just looks so wrong to me... That and his legs and arms keep falling off when I try transforming him... It's a good figure but based on how amazingly awesome the tv show character is, I was hoping for better.

>>If indeed this is the fallen from trasformers mythos, then it can only mean one thing. That Unicron also exist in the continuity.
I have to agree with this statement. However, the more I think about it, the less I tend to believe that "The Fallen" will be in this movie.

I also really do not think they'll be phasing out Megatron so quickly. I firmly believe he'll be back in TF2 w/ or w/o The Fallen. He got so little screen time in TF1, and being the iconic character that he is, I'd be shocked if the writers just moved on to another villian. Time will tell.

>>take a good look at the background of this site... notice anything? HOW LONG HAS THAT BEEN THERE?
Actually we rolled out the new look in the middle of April when Hasbro announced it would release TFA toys early in OH:

I'm curious about you internet browsing habits Autobutt. Do you usually link directly to our news page? Do you have dial-up internet, and not usually let the whole page load? How is it you're only seeing this for the first time, out of curiousity?
Autobutt said,  - 2008-06-09 17:33:59
actually, im pretty embarrased about it but im using a laptop, and i can see how normally with the angle that im staring at the computer screen for hours i would never have seen "" in the background =P

also in that news post it is never stated that is in the background! how many other people have never noticed it before? not that it's a bad thing, im just wondering
Master Dex said,  - 2008-06-09 17:58:03
Ah, Autobutt is talking about how it says in faint white in the background of the news page... it seemed like you were referring to the background on the main page with the Animated Ark and Nemesis.

Hey Perceptor, I get what you're saying about Screamer's blue. It's like MP-03 all over again. I just hope that when Takara releases TF:A figs they don't make him show-accurate gray, or I'm gonna be REALLY ticked off.

Plus, not all the Deluxes are that great. The ones I'm most disappointed with are Prowl and Lockdown. Prowl's flaw is likely Hasbro's fault: a big spot of yellow paint of his face. Lockdown's flaw is the way his hands are stuck sideways and his shoulders point downward.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-06-10 09:45:19
I think you meant MP-03 Sabr, MP-04 was a rerelease of convoy with a trailer.
megatrong1 said,  - 2008-06-10 13:09:19
this has nothing to do with this but for transformers fans in ohio i have been going to a store for 3 yrs that sells a $hit lode of old tf look up toys time forgot and on their website is only the box ones
Rich said,  - 2008-06-10 13:54:12
When I first read the supposed new movie title my first reaction was that I hope it would be Fallen from the Simon Furman comic. Maybe it will be maybe it won't. Either way its got me stoked right now as I really dug the comic art and the titanium Fallen is awesome, especially in 'bot mode, and one of the best looking titaniums. So kudos to the movie guys if they're gonna translate the Fallen geek-love to the movie screen.

The fallen is so going to be Jazz. If it isn't then Megs is going to be Galvatron and Unicron is coming and Hot Rod gets made and IT'S GOING TO ROCK!
