Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena Comment on Bumblebee: The Movie

Bumblebee: The Movie stars Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena briefly commented on the movie. Steinfeld spoke about acting against a CGI character for the first time with IGN while Cena spoke about the project in general with Digital Spy. Cena does call the movie a "reboot" but it is not. It is more of a prequel to the Michael Bay movies with its 1987 setting. It could be argued its a "reboot" of approach for the franchise with a ~$70 million budget (compared to ~$200M on average) and by virtue of being the first film not directed by Michael Bay.

Hailee Steinfeld
“It's very character-driven and storyline-driven, which is good. I think will be interesting to see it play out because you still get the action and the Transformers themselves. There's a whole lot in it for the Transformers fans that I think they'll love, but it's definitely about storyline and characters.”

“It was definitely a process [acting against non-existent Bumblebee]. With his background in animation, [director Travis Knight] was able to see, visually, a final product. It was nice to have somebody that could verbally translate what that was. But it was difficult. It was hard, I think, for both of us to sort of maneuver,” she explained. “Not only was this something completely new to me but it was something completely new to him and a different, you know, a different way. It was definitely a work in progress but I think we got a good thing going and hopefully, we'll see what happens.”

John Cena
"It was awesome to be involved with that franchise, and a pleasure to be asked to be part of the movie, but I took the part because it was a challenge for me," he reiterated. "It's something that I haven't been able to showcase, and that I wanted to."

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

Yeah I know its not Transformers related but not a whole lot of new to report on that front. Besides, its the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming together to prevent Thanos from assembling his Infinity Gauntlet (aka get powers to rewrite the universe as he sees fit) with what looks to be an epic scope and budget. Avengers 3, aka Avengers: Infinity War, hits theaters on May 4.
