King Arthur, Merlin Cast for Transformers 5?

While not official confirmed, a post from Mashable is making the rounds that a King Arthur has been cast been cast for the role of King Arthur in Transformers: The Last Knight. After his turn as a not particularily kingly version of the character in Once Upon A Time TV series, Liam Garrigan has apparently been tapped to play the TF5 version of the character for the movie. Also of interest is the site suggests that Santiago Cabrera is Merlin instead of a just a soldier under Lennox's command. Is so this would be a pretty unique take on the Merlin character. Thanks to Feris O. for the heads-up.

A Knight Filming for Transformers 5 in Scotland

It looks like Transformers: The Last Knight will have a literal knight in shining armor in it, based on pics from the Staffin distrtict at the Isle of Skye, Scotland Facebook page. The left image represents the set of images which is said to be from Transformers: The Last Knight filming at the location. The other images show the knight (who reminds me of one of the Hobbits from the trilogy) and the helicopter used to film a scene. My guess is, much like the previous movies, there will be a flashback to the past for some Transformers related artifact or event that will tie into the movie's present day plot (why break the franchise's script formula if it keeps working.).
