IDW Publishing recently revealed to MTV News that they are working on a five-part prequel mini-series entitled Transformers: Destiny that will connect the 2007 film to the Summer 2009 sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
IDW revealed that the main villain in the new Michael Bay film will be a powerful robot named The Fallen, who was once one of the thirteen Transformers and is now seeking vengeance.
"[We're going to] explore the background of The Fallen — the main villain of the movie — as well as expand on the 'Reign of Starscream' story that we're doing and tie everything in to what this next movie is going to be," commented writer Chris Mowry. "The next movie starts out with just tons of action and there's obviously going to be a lot of questions, so we're hoping to answer some of those beforehand."
