Well the leaked reports say that Bumblebee is going to return as the concept Camaro for the 2nd movie. But just like the first one hes going to reformat into a new car shortly into it.
Saleen is under contract for the next movie and his star in the last film Barricade the police car went MIA at the end.
No word on that yet but Saleen has been ramping up production on another concept for the movie. You remember Saleen was the company that brought us the movie 5th gen Camaro. So get this..
It turns out that Bumblebee gets it bad in this film and while regenerating he needs to reformat again. This time he turns turns into the next Saleen Mustang that is based on the refresh Ford is doing to the pony car about the same time the movie comes out the new faced mustang will be making the rounds. This will be Saleens autobot version of that car.
I guess with Shelby getting the Knight Rider pie and GM hitting a home run with Transformers last year Saleen had *****ed maybe and had some pull since they did make the first Bumblebee. But also in one interview it was stated if the movie did do well Saleen would be more prominent in the next movie. So it looks like Bumblebee is going to be a 5th gen Camaro and half way through the movie hes going to be wearing a pony in the grill...
Studios they have a perfect formula on thier hands and they fudge it up. I knew it wouldnt last long..
and just to get you going more...
Also I guess Ford is in talks to up its presence in the movie to be other autobots. So we will see.
here is a link to some of the rumors:
and just an FYI..Paramount has some say on these boards so a lot of the info is posted and deleted. So if you don't see it wait a few and check back. Someone will have something about it. Heck they had a script up there a week back...
