Too bad the racial stereotypes and 200+ comic relief characters will get more screentime than Optimus. That alone is good reason why these movies suck.

@LEVITIKUZ well this whole series has been batman and robin so if the next one is this series' batman and robin we won't be able to tell

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is this generation's Batman and Robin.

I liked the first but the human stuff in 2 and 3 was just insulting, that Bay thinks thats what entertains us. Either continue with only the soldiers and Transformers, or make a Cybertron-centric prequel. Either way just make it a war film thats their strength and theor downfall is any kind of character interaction so just cut the BS.

Michael Bay couldn't knock anything out of the park, he'd blow it up long before he had the chance.

I'd rather watch Batman and Robin on a loop for a day than watch these Transformers films...

I would be on board for the death of prime/rise of rodimus/unicron idea except for 1: optimus was killed in 2 and revived by "the matrix" so if he was killed while still having "the matrix" he would not stay dead.
2: rodimus was never popular because he just wasnt optimus and he was introduced purely to replace bumblebee is popular enough that where he made into a bumblebee/rodimus analouge....that could be well recieved...he is the onr anutobot i can see being able to do it (as long as he can f'ing talk).

When i first saw optimus die as a kid i cried, honestly i did but if they do it again it would have no impact...he was killed fighting to protect sam...probably the only good scene 2 would just feel for micheal bay.
Well the writers dont even seem to understand that but its not consistent...sometimes the matrix is a piece of the spark of primus..other times the matrix is is the spark of the primes....and lets not go into starscreams immortal spark/ghost.
The logical next step for a trilogy is unicron as the main antagonist...since cybertron is basically destroyed and unlivable i guess earth is where he will be heading...problem there is after a giant planet eating transformer....there is no bigger threat...quintisons would be a minor threat at best in comparison.

I made a promise to myself,if Peter Cullen wouldnt return to voice Prime I would never see this movie,but now that he is I probably still won't see it because of one director who shall remain nameless.

Levitikuz's quote=pure awesomness.

Who could be the antagonist?? The third one like had megaton die, and it seeme he was the link that led up to other villains.. Plus the planet is gone??

Well, Optimus and Bee have always been the best parts of the movies, so this is good news.
