Screenwriter Roberto Orci has talked about a couple of rumors circulating around "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". Sharing a few hints about the "Transformers" sequel to IGN, the co-creator of "Fringe" confirms previous speculation about Pretender and has an extremely short say about Ravage.
Though he doesn't exactly give out much on the details of the Pretender or confirm speculation that Alice is a Pretender, Orci insists that the Transformers hiding inside a human-shaped shell will indeed be seen in the sequel. "I'll give you an exclusive here," he gushes. "There is a Pretender. I'm going to get killed for saying that."
Back in October 2008, TWF2005 has broken out the speculation that Isabel Lucas' Alice will be a Pretender, a transformer which hides itself inside a disguising shell. "The Pretender Transformer will have an arm that transforms into an energy weapon, a long tongue, and a scanning tentacle," the blog further detailed on the new robot.
Apart from confirming the existence of Pretender in the film, Orci also discusses the story of the sequel compared to the first one. "It's an extreme [jump] from the first one," he says. "The outrageous, crazy humor is more outrageous, but then so is the serious side of it and so is the stakes of the Transformers plot and the seriousness with which some of their mythology is treated."
"So it kind of swings wildly between those two extremes, and that I think was one of the successful parts of the first movie. Again, some of the die hard fans will be equally annoyed at some of the things they see, but I can also say they will be more gratified than they were for the first one, to see how some of the Transformers story and how their battle takes place in the second one," Orci adds.

Written by Ehren Kruger, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" will follow Sam Witwicky and Mikaela Banes as they are being attack by Decepticons because Sam has learned about the origins of the Transformers and their ancient history on Earth. While the baddies try to capture Sam to acquire the knowledge, U.S. military and an international coalition unite with Autobots to fight back the villains' attack.
Starring once again Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro, the action fantasy film will be supported by Isabel Lucas, Rainn Wilson and others. While the trailer is said to be debuted during Super Bowl on February 1, the movie itself will come out in the U.S. big screen on June 26.
