Optimus Prime Outruns Explosions on the ‘Transformers 4’ Set

The leader of the Autobots was spotted on the M-52 outside of Adrian, Michigan as production continues on Michael Bay’s sequel.

Director Michael Bay is in Adrian, Michigan, where shooting continues on the upcoming franchise sequel Transformers 4. Optimus Prime was spotted dodging explosions on the M-52, just outside of town. We have footage from this chase, along with another look at the Argosy Freightliner that made its debut yesterday. Heavy fan speculation has this vehicle marked as Nemesis Prime. Is he the main villain of Transformers 4?

    I don't believe the Argosy truck to be Nemesis Prime, but in fact to be Motormaster from the Stuticons. If that truck were in fact Nemesis Prime then his vehicle mode should be of the same size as Optimus other wise when transformed to robot mode he would be smaller in size then Optimus or not look like optimus at all. Also if you look at the photo's released of all the unknown transformers most of them are of sport cars like those of the stuticons. Long live MENASOR.

    @monkeyiron 2.0, I agree. Remember when Karl Urban mislead us my saying in an interview that he was glad they had Gary Mitchell. The movie was done by then. He knew who the bad guy was. I think Michael Bay is taking cues from J.J. Abrams' secrecy tactics.
