    he is more than likely not in the film... No one really knows for sure.

    warning- lots of people will freak out on you for making another silverbolt thread

    Do we really need another Silverbolt thread?

    To summarize, early last year we had heard that James Avery would be voicing a character named "Silverbolt" in the third movie. As early as this announcement was, the name "Silverbolt" could have been a running/working name for another character entirely (like Shockwave or Leadfoot).

    During the filming of the first movie Blackout had many codenames including, but not limited to, "Vortex", "Soundwave", and at one point even "Grimlock". Barricade was even referred to as "Brawl" at one point.

    The movie is less then two weeks away. Let's just wait and see.

    That rumor started with something that was posted on IMDb, and from what I understand, they're not entirely reliable. There's no other evidence that Silverbolt is in the movie, sadly, but it's possible that Silverbolt was a working title for another character. My guess is that Avery will be voicing Leadfoot, since he looks a bit like him.

    Edit: Apologies, Raven. We must have posted at the same time.

    I think the alias theory is the most plausible. Probably a filming codename.

    If my memory is correct, the announcement was from Avery himself. Doesn't mean the name of the character hasn't changed since then, but it does strongly support him voicing a character of some kind.

    It's not as likely, but another possibility is that he's actually going to be voicing a TFP character. If I'm not mistaken it wasn't too long after we got news of Fowler's VA.

    The whole thing is ridiculous because they never announce voice talent that early in production. At that stage they're usually still deciding who even gets lines, not who's gonna say 'em.

    Silverbolt was a codename more than likely, or possibly - given how far in recording on the show is - Silverbolt might just be showing up voiced by James Avery in Prime.

    Time will tell. But chances are he's not in Dark of the Moon, though a lack of toys proves nothing since we've seen very little on the Wheeljack front so far.

    Part of me wants to go on TFwiki and Wikipedia and delete Silverbolt from the Autobot roster for DOTM.
