A week after announcing the title of the fifth Transformers film, director Michael Bay has shared the first image from Cuba.

Transformers: The Last Knight is only the second major Hollywood production to film in Cuba since President Barack Obama lifted sanctions. We’ve already seen a collection of images and videos from the Cuban sets of Fast & Furious 8, which was the first movie to shoot in the country.

While this Transformers image isn’t much -- it’s just a shot of a lime green vintage car -- it’s going to mean a whole lot more if this car is actually a Transformer in disguise. We’ve only seen Transformers disguised as cars by companies that paid the most in product placement till now, so to get one that isn’t the latest Chevrolet is going to be a surprise.
