TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS Spoilers: Breaking Down The Movie's Shocking Ending And What It's Leading To

If you read through the Transformers: Rise of the Beasts reviews that rolled in this week, you might have noticed a few critics alluding to an ending that sets the stage for a future crossover event. 

At first glance, we wondered if they might be hinting at the Bumblebee franchise seeing as that never got a sequel. The reality, however, is far more exciting, and we're now taking a deep dive into what happens courtesy of

In the closing moments of Rise of the Beasts, Anthony Ramos' Noah, having helped save the day, goes for a job interview for what he thinks is a simple security gig. 

The interview begins and it quickly becomes clear that this isn't a normal conversation. The interviewer knows Noah saved the world and promises him that his brother's medical bills will be dealt with as a means of thanking him. Now, though, he needs Noah to step up and join his group because they're in the middle of a war. 

He hands him a business card and moves a plaque on the wall to reveal a secret base. Noah looks down at the card and it simply says "G.I. Joe."

Yes, we're finally getting a crossover between that toy franchise and Transformers, something fans have spent years dreaming of. It's unclear what threat will lead to the military group and Autobots fighting side-by-side, but this crossover is clearly starting to take shape at Paramount Pictures. 

2021's Snake Eyes was a flop, and the prior G.I. Joe movies failed to impress fans and critics alike. With that in mind, throwing those characters into an adventure alongside Optimus Prime and company is arguably the best way to bring that struggling property to a place where it can find box office success. 

Any ideas the studio likely had for G.I. Joe must have gone out the window when Snake Eyes bombed and it would be an uphill battle to get people back into theaters to watch any of those characters take centre stage. However, this crossover may well lead to an eventual revival outside of Transformers

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is set to be released in U.S. theatres on June 9, but arrives in the UK slightly earlier on June 8.

I Went to the premiere and the movie was fun. Best since Bumblebee lol. The hype for gijoe was huge in the theater. Hopefully they do it right and it makes sense.

Rise of the Beasts was horrible. I don't get how they could just ruin the positive momentum that Bumblebee gave the franchise. The one thing I will say this movie got right which many others failed to do was give the lead human his own Transformer friend. It was getting old watching Bumblebee befriend every human character. Noah and Mirage were a good combo just like Charlie and Bumblebee. But Rise of the Beasts was so over the top with the storyline that I couldn't keep up. And then it tried and turned into this grand epic war that had no heart or that epic feel. The Maximals were borderline pointless in this film. They could have been excluded entirely.

this movie was the biggest pice of dog shit I have ever seen, knew it would be bad, went to see how they'd butcher the maximals and they surprised even me at how badly they messed up this whole thing.

I have been supporting these movies since 1986 and rise of the beasts was by far the worst. Where the Hell were the maximals. They were in the movie for 2 minutes 😆. They should have called it Transformers rise of noah, because his charm stole all of the scenes from the maximals. 🙄

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Btw the movie is def a sequel to bumblebee. Prime mentions Charlie in the movie when he told Bee “I know one human was good to you”.

The movie was good, i enjoyed it....Noah having Mirage as a suit was a bit silly but im hyped for the G.I Joe crossover
