While Marvel is busy filming Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok, Paramount is committed to expanding its Transformers universe with The Last Knight. Director Michael Bay has been posting behind-the-scenes looks from the set, and the latest batch includes some “subway surfing,” Fourth of July fireworks, and some car-flipping action.
Nickelodeon TV actress Isabela Moner is one of the new faces in the latest Transformers, and she features in a video from the set spotlighting a subway demolition piece. Moner slides down the inside of a subway car that lies above ground and wrecked beside a piece of train track. The actress doesn’t reveal anything juicy about production, but she briefly talks about the “fun” aspect of shooting one of these films.

Colonel William Lennox, Tyrese Gibson as Robert Epps, Anthony Hopkins, Jerrod Carmichael (Neighbors), Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Santiago Cabrera (Heroes).
