David Sobolov Teases A Role In Bumblebee MovieReported by Foxwolf on Monday, August 27th 2018
David Sobolov is no stranger when it comes to Transformers. He has played the revenge-driven Depth Charge in Beast Wars and the cold and calculating Shockwave in Transformers: Prime, as well as other characters in numerous video games.
After getting the green light to announce his involvement, Sobolov was quick to tweet that he has a part in the upcoming solo Bumblee movie. Unfortunately details are scarce and it's not even known if it's a voice over or on-camera role. The actor does tease his fans to try and guess the character's name, so one can guess (and hope) that it will be a known bot from the Transformers canon.
UPDATE Aug 30: Sobolov has now tweeted his character is Blitzwing (as seen in the movie's teaser trailer.
