Whilst many rightfully see Optimus Prime as the face of the Transformers, there’s a lot of love for Hot Rod, a cocky youthful Autobot who at one point steps up to become the leader of the good guys as Rodimus Prime once Optimus is out of the picture. Well, now comes word that Hot Rod will be a part of the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight.

Paramount Pictures confirmed the addition of Hot Rod to their cinematic Transformers franchise and even released a first look at this newcomer to Michael Bay’s Robots-in-Disguise movie series, as shown below:

Hot Road joins a roster for The Last Knight that includes Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Drift, Sqweeks, Barricade, Onslaught and the hotly-anticipated return of Megatron. On the human front, the film will feature franchise veterans Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson plus new additions in the shape of Anthony Hopkins, Isabela Moner, Jerrod Carmichael, Laura Haddock and Santiago Babrera.

To be directed by Michael Bay once more, Transformers: The Last Knight is currently shooting ahead of a June 23rd, 2017 release.
