For the first time ever The Transformers franchise took a seat in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con to discuss their latest installment Bumblebee. Stars Hailee Steinfeld, Jorge Lendeborg, and John Cena were on hand to talk about the prequel spinoff and drop some exclusive footage for attendees and an all-new poster. Check it out below!

Set in 1987, Bumblebee follows Charlie (Steinfeld) “a soon-to-be adult that is trying to find herself when she stumbles upon a battle-scared Bumblebee.” Cena will be playing the villain named Agent Burns. “He is a complicated man but, damn, he looks good in a suit though,” said Cena during the panel.

The film released a teaser trailer last month. You can check that out below:

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
