    just wanted to say, i think it is to early for a reboot, but hasbro's sales will be down and they will ask for another movie, michael bay has probably guessed this and made sure all the main villains of DOTM died, he has made sure (if another is made) that it will suck. Hollywood will come up with some crap way of bringing them back and no one will like it, people will look back and think 'wow michael bay made this kind of stuff work'

    but there is a hazard, michael bay may come back for the 4th, i know he said he won't but who knows how much they will offer, then he will muck it up for himself, he will be looked as a failing director, not as good as before, michael bay has made it almost impossible for a good 4th (without the use of unicron).

    I think you're overthinking things here. I mean, other than Unicron, what other villians could have been used? I imagine there must have been some degree of input from Hasbro on character choice.

    Transformers is like Star Wars now. If the name is attached people will see the new movie regardless of how good\bad the previous movie was.

    Why do people keep forgetting that Megatron isn't the only villain in the Transformers universe?

    I mean: Nemesis Prime [The first one to mention Scourge gets in the face], Scraplets, Unicron, Quintessons, Overlord, Lord Straxus...

    The last four can give story for one trilogy EACH for God's sake...

    i guess but i mean by without unicron i meant all the other villains, i guess you are right ovelord balder, but they would probably want a well known villain, or one that people can relate to transformers

    I'd watch a movie with RiD Scourge as the villain before I watched a movie with a nemesis prime.

    I'm also saddened your list includes neither Bludgeon, Jhiaxus, or Thunderwing, Balder. Or Scorponok or Dezaras. All of these, and the ones on your list, are relatively minor villains compared to the ones that were used, with the exception of the fallen.

    I'd like to see the next movie/s involve either Jhiaxus, Thunderwing or Lord Straxus as the main baddy. The rest are just meh to me, character or otherwise. Unicron is far too ridiculous to see realized. Galactus in Fantastic Four 2. S'all I'm sayin'.

    Edit:

    Bullshit. On every count.

    Alternatively, they could make up some NEW villains.

    I knew I was forgetting someone, and there's Ratbat too.

    The Fallen was a very obscure villain when they brought him to the second movie.

    But any of those that I mentioned would be awesome, just picture:

    Overlord - Malcom McDowell.
    Ratbat - Gary Oldman.
    Lord Straxus - James Earl Jones.
    Nemesis Prime - Peter Cullen with his Venger voice.

    Awesomeness would be made!

    Also Unicron isn't the only god like evil badass. Liege Maximo anyone?

    The general public really isn't that consern over the villains since noe of them were that uniue or memorable to be honest. As long as we have Bumblebee and Optimus being an ungodly badass with tons and tons of explostion and CGI we're set to go.

    These villains sound really good. They sound like they can bring some weight to live action movie realm. In fact, you guys have got my interest up on these villains. I might have to look them up on Wikipedia or TFWiki.net.

    A different kind of alien could try to attack earth, something that Humans and Cybertronians haven't seen before (let's go with Quintessons. movie verse buggers up past timelines) and the Autobots and Humans have to rack their brains to try and beat an impossible foe.
    Also, let bumblebee die.

    You know some of the fans have suck shockingly limited imagination.

    The movie crew dig up the fcuking Fallen! He was basicly a nobody who appeard in what two comic issues and never again. Not in any cartoon or anythig.

    If they could make a movie with him as the main badguy,and peopes heads didn't explode form the "OH NOES I DOES NOT UNREDTUND! NOOOOOOOOO MOVIE FAIL!" I seriously don't see why they couldn't do the same with the guys Balder posted.

    Seriously, the general publich isn't stupid as much as some poeple belive.

    I think it would be harder to bring him back than just introduce a new character. I mean, the Fallen was a pretty obscure villain and they used him, chances are there's a similar and even more well-known character.

    Yea, but by the end of the day; it all comes back to Megatron.
