    I was just looking up Welker on IMDB, and it has him listed as Megatron in the new movie, and the movie page has his name, sans the "rumored" tag that accompanied it. I know IMDB isn't a concrete source, but what do you guys think the chances are of it happening?

    I know. I heard his bit for the AllSpark, and without the flanging, it sounded odd, but I could still hear Megatron in there. I'm hoping they pull through, since they pulled Peter Cullen out and gave him the job. Setting him up with anyone other than Frank Welker would be near blasphamous.

    I'm sure someone will come in here and post something ridiculously simple like "imdb is crap kthxbye" but, BEFORE they do that, I'll echo exactly what you said - IMDB is largely fan-run and fan-edited and, therefore, can easily be wrong. Now, another way to think about Welker being listed as Megatron is the fact that, honestly, we haven't heard anything CONTRARY to the point yet. Unless someone on here feels so absolutely committed that they'd like to contact IMDB and let them know that they're incorrect, why bother? If an official announcement about Welker being Megatron is made, it'll probably show up here first.

    ive seen iMDB wrong many times, so again, its not a concrete source and we can only wait for an official announcement to put it to rest. I'm sure he's got as good of a chance as Cullen did though

    This movie creature is so far from the original G1 Megatron that I hope it's *not* voiced by Welker.
