    I was reading somewhere that Corey Burton refused to do Shockwave's voice any reason why??

    He IS Shockwave and was on record saying this was his favorite character....:wtf:

    he doesn't want to do a big movie (i know odd) and he has other projects going on at the moment. he suggested that they try and get david warner, the man who corey based the voice off of.

    Yea but Corey is the man...I can see Megatron etc. voice but Corey did Shockwave from G1 to Animated so there is no other...Personally I would have because what are the chances that Shockwave will be in a movie again...

    Because he's clearly a man of taste and sophistication and doesn't need this blot on his resume.

    Yep. No voice actor does any work for a paycheck. It's purely for the character and the love of the craft.

    Honestly, I'm not going to lose any sleep over him not signing on, whatever the reason may be. His Shockwave voice isn't what I ever envisioned Shockwave's voice to be like, anyway.

    Hehe, I was the one who "broke" the story on Corey Burton not returning... :) 

    He's busy, he's happy with what he's already got with Transformers, and he doesn't want to be involved in a big-budget blockbuster like Dark of the Moon.

    Kinda sad to not see him reprise the role after his awesomeness in Animated as Shockwave, Ratchet, Megatron, etc... but David Warner would be the next best choice.

    It's the year when one of the live action films is coming out so just about every movie thread is going to end up with some sort of fan vs fan fight.

    When you work as often in the industry as Burton, I suspect the ability to think "not to my taste" every so often is an earnt right.

    Because it's a Michael Bay movie.



    Burtin loves voicing in cartoons.

    Given his verbal distaste of the WFC GameStop commercial, I wouldn't be surprised and I'd think more of him if that's the case.

    For all we know Welker and Cullen told him not to bother and shared Bay horror stories.
