The One Scene That Completely Changes the Franchises Future



Attention! This piece contains spoilers for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. Cinema can be a powerful tool, and sometimes a single scene can completely change the trajectory of a film. The emotional current of a movie can be set or shifted by a single moment, and this technique is used by many filmmakers. Marvel movies, for example, are known for their defining scenes that draw viewers in and keep them invested. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts also employs this technique in a major way, with a scene that completely changes the future of the franchise.

Although the film follows a formulaic plot, it is still quintessentially Transformers. The inclusion of a major reveal in a potent scene between Ramos’ character and a secret agency completely changes what fans can expect to see in future franchise offerings. The breadth of its revelation has stimulated much chatter because it’s utterly fascinating.

The film takes moviegoers back in time to 1994, making it a sequel to Bumblebee, but its status in relation to the 2000s set Michael Bay movies is unclear. However, everything else remains formulaic. While there are new characters, “The Maximals,” the plot remains consistent with former features. The Transformers and their human and not-so-human allies ultimately partner to save Earth. But such is not a big complaint or a dealbreaker.

The standout scene awakened new possibilities for the franchise’s future. Fans weren’t the only ones excited about the reveal; so was lead actor Anthony Ramos. According to the actor, “I knew about it. I knew about it, yeah I was going crazy when I saw and read that. I was like, ‘Woah, that’s gonna…”

The film’s final scene reveals that Noah is actually interviewing with the organization known as G.I. Joe. 80s kids now finally get the indication of a crossover between the Transformers and the Real American Heroes. The breadth of potential expansion beyond such a crossover in the distant future is boundless.

G.I. Joe is another popular Hasbro toy property, one that extends farther than Transformers, although the two were contemporaries in the 1980s. The two franchises have crossed over in cartoons and comics, yet never in film, even though both had live-action movies in the late 2000s. Hasbro was developing a shared universe with G.I. Joe alongside other toy properties, including M.A.S.K., Rom: The Space Knight, Visionaries, and Micronauts. While those plans never solidified, it appears they have decided to crossover their two biggest properties with Transformers and G.I. Joe.

This now means that the human characters, which have always been one of the most criticized elements of the Transformers movies, now have the potential to stand out as they can be members of G.I. Joe. This certainly makes the toy line for an upcoming movie more exciting and has the chance to expand both franchises’ scope. G.I. Joe has struggled at the box office, and Transformers is not the powerhouse it once was. Yet combining these two series together could set the stage for bigger, better movies and a shared universe that can rival Marvel and DC.

Warning! This article contains spoilers for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.One of the most powerful aspects of cinema is singularity. One scene, one line, or one moment acts as a tide, completely altering the ebb and flow, setting or shifting the atmosphere of a film. Moviegoers can see this powerful technique displayed throughout various films. Award-winning features such as Moonlight are active demonstrations. In one of the most potent scenes written in Moonlight, we see two emerge in water, and while seemingly simplistic, that scene sets the movement, the emotional current of the film. As the Atlantic notes, “The scene is like nothing so much as a baptism: a moment of communion and spiritual connection between the two, a moment that seems to be revelatory, and its significance is echoed in other moments that use water throughout the film.”

Screenwriters, filmmakers’ directors, and most Tinsel Town creatives fully understand using one potent moment to drive impact. They live for the power of singularity. And it’s employed to close chapters, open new doors, or bridge the old to the new. One franchise in particular, Marvel, has mastered this beautifully. Marvel movies often have at least one defining scene that draws viewers in or lures them into deeper commitment. Now fans will find this technique has also been employed in the most recent chapter of the Transformers franchise. With one scene, we see the future. If something works, there is no need to fix it. One fascinating element of the recent film, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is the inclusion of a major uncovering in a potent scene between Ramos’ character and a secret agency. What is the power of its influence? This scene completely changes what fans hope to see in future franchise offerings. And the breadth of its revelation has stimulated much chatter because it’s utterly fascinating.

Transformers: Rise of the Beast opened in theaters on June 9, 2023. From its pre-release until now, it’s been quite a conversational piece, especially for franchise fans. The pre-hype undoubtedly drove the triumph of its debut. However, there wasn’t much variation in the film. For followers of this cinematic series, the factor that most stood out was the story’s chronology, as this segment takes moviegoers back in time to 1994, making it a sequel to Bumblebeebut its status to the 2000s set Michael Bay movies unclear. The filmmakers have said it is a prequel, yet it contains story elements contradicting those films.

However, barring that change, everything else remains formulaic. While there are new characters, “The Maximals,” the plot remains consistent with former features. The Transformers and their human and not-so-human allies ultimately partner to save Earth. But such is not a big complaint or a dealbreaker. Because although it’s a patterned plot, it is the signature of Transformers. And what’s a film without its signature?

A Moment of ExpansionTransformers Rise of the Beasts

While most of the film followed expectations, one element catalyzed reinvigoration. Those who watched can identify the standout scene, which awakened new possibilities for the franchise’s future. Fans weren’t the only ones excited about the reveal; so was lead actor Anthony Ramos. He could barely contain his excitement in an earlier interview with Comicbook. According to the actor,

“I knew about it. I knew about it, yeah I was going crazy when I saw and read that. I was like, ‘Woah, that’s gonna…”

It’s not hard to fill in the blanks. To drop some breadcrumbs with this scene, the creators expanded the future, creating new avenues. The film’s final scene reveals that Noah is actually interviewing with the organization known as G.I. Joe. 80s kids now finally get the indication of a crossover between the Transformers and the Real American Heroes. And the implications are mind-blowing. Why? The breadth of potential expansion beyond such a crossover in the distant future is boundless.

G.I. Joe is another popular Hasbro toy property, one that extends farther than Transformers, although the two were contemporaries in the 1980s when G.I. Joe relaunched as G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The two franchises have crossed over in cartoons and comics, yet never in the film, even though both had live-action movies in the late 2000s.
