The image describes Hot Rod as "brash and arrogant," and as "Bumblebee's brother-in-arms."

In the landmark animated Transformers: The Movie, Optimus Prime is killed in battle, and Hot Rod seizes the Matrix of Leadership to become Rodimus Prime. Could a similar fate be in store in Transformers: The Last Knight?

Transformers: The Last Knight is scheduled to hit theaters June 23, 2017.
