The jury is still out on whether or not the upcoming Bumblebee film is any good. While the trailers and presentation at San Diego Comic-Con are all promising, Paramount has five other Michael Bay films working against it. As such, audiences are still skeptical — but that didn’t stop some fans from getting excited upon seeing one red Decepticon flying towards the camera in the trailers.

Immediately, many claimed it could be no one other than Starscream — though if you ask me, all these damn robots look exactly the same. Sadly, for those fans, the director went on the record while at Comic-Con, saying that it wouldn’t be Starscream. So who could it be?

Voice actor David Sobolov recently took to Twitter to reveal who the Decepticon is.

“#Transformers fans… It’s time to reveal I’m the voice of Blitzwing in @bumblebeemovie ! Thank you Travis Knight and @ParamountPics for this exciting chance to work on another epic @transformers adventure.”

Interestingly enough, Blitzwing has usually been depicted as purple in his various incarnations — perhaps director Travis Knight didn’t like the color, or is there some other reason for the change? Regardless, Transformers-faithful can now rest at night knowing exactly who this guy is.

How do you feel about this Decepticon being revealed as Blitzwing? Let us know down below!
