While official shots from the set of
have so far focussed mainly on the fourquel's automobiles, a new photo finally introduces a couple of humans - including Mark Wahlberg's satchel-wearing hero.
The above photo was released over the weekend, and shows director Michael Bay out-posing Wahlberg in front of a strange new monolith.
What is said monolith? Could it be the franchise's new MacGuffin, taking over from the Allspark - the energy cube that was so pivotal to the first Transformers flick?
Or could this be one part of Fortress Maximus, the giant Transformer who's yet to take a bow on the big screen?
Obviously it's impossible to tell this early. After all, this could also just be Bay taking us all for a ride with a shot of some fancy set dressing…
Transformers 4 opens on 10 July 2014.
