Check out Wahlberg's wicked alien gun in 1st Transformer 4 character poster

Paramount Pictures has started rolling out the character posters for Transformers: Age of Extinction. They've kicked things off with the franchise's new leading man, Mark Wahlberg. Goodbye Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf), hello Cade Yaeger. Doesn't that name sound way more badass?

Here's a supersized version of the poster that features Cade carrying a heavy-duty weapon. We're not sure what it is, but we wouldn't want to be on the wrong end of it. He appears to be standing in the middle of a field waiting for something big to go down. We all know that in the Transformers universe, everything is bigger but not necessarily better. Hopefully, Age of Extinction will right some of the wrongs made by its predecessors.

Transformers: Age of Extinction opens in theaters June 27.
