The new trailer for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts teases major destruction to come if Optimus Prime does not succeed in his alliance. Unicron seeks to devour Earth, sending Scourge and other Terrorcon agents as the first wave. This is why Optimus Primal and the Maximals want to partner with Optimus Prime.
They need numbers, and unified with the heroic Autobots, they may be able to turn the tide. Interestingly, Pete Davidson’s Mirage is getting major airtime, claiming he’ll be a key Autobot in this continued soft reboot of the Michael Bay films. Surprisingly, Mirage has a huge moment at the end of the trailer when he comes up with an Iron Man-like weapon that nods to the classic 1986 animated film.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Gives a Nod to the Exosuit
In The Transformers: The Movie, Spike and his son, Daniel, had exoskeletons they had to manually jump into to aid them in combat. With the evil Megatron, who became Galvatron, and the Decepticons hunting them, they desperately sought protection while on the loose. This suit aided the humans by offering a robotic shell, nodding to Iron Man’s many armors. They could survive the vacuum of space and, as later cartoons would show, water and more dangerous terrain.
Various combinations would allow them to transform into vehicles, submarines, and airships, becoming combat-ready. In the The Rising of the Beasts trailer, an exosuit is hinted at when Mirage tells Noah to “get behind the wheel”, tossing a glove that sticks to his hand. He begins to unravel a costume, but the clip ends before the big reveal. It’s a beautiful tease, nodding to Tony Stark of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who used a similar gauntlet and nanotechnology to coat his body. Thus, we have the impression that this film offers something simpler and more refined in its design, à la Stark’s Extremis. It makes sense because so many viewers are used to what Marvel Studios has been up to – which has even swayed the likes of the Blue Beetle movie.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts elevates the human experience
What this combination does is change the idea of soldiers working with bots. In the Michael Bay movies, the military stole Autobot and Decepticon technology to build their own weapons and machines, without fully understanding what they were unleashing. This time it seems the bots are more tolerant and trusting, creating better emotional attachments and friendships. Visually, these suits are better than wielding guns, creating super-soldiers in an innovative breath of fresh air.
This connects humans and bots even more, adding flair and substance. The exosuit could even allow the wider military access, enhancing ground forces for future incursions. But until then, Noah and whoever starts won’t fit the damsel-in-distress trope where people like Bumblebee constantly had to save Sam and those just following the ride. This way humans can be on the offensive – aggressive and not waiting for sneaky openings. Ultimately, this puts humans on equal footing, allowing them to retaliate, transform, and save bots when needed.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts hits theaters on June 9, 2023.
