The Hot Mic Podcast co-host, Rocha further added his opinion on the upcoming film by stating that he heard that the standalone sequel to Bumblebee is “a mess” with its distribution company, Paramount Pictures doing its best to mend the mess.

“I’ve got to be honest: A few weeks ago, a friend who’s a source of mine who has connections with that studio and people involved in that situation told me the same thing. He had heard that the movie’s a mess and that they’re trying to fix it.”

While there is no official information released regarding the film’s postponement given that the post-production scenario seemed quite serious, the series has been subtly hinting at the problem for a while now. Given that the last teaser was released in December, not much marketing is being done by the company to promote the film.
