    Not sure how you get 'probably isn't returning' out of anything stated in that article.

    Yeah, to me it's just a case of he hasn't been contacted, which considering the movie isn't even close to beginning production is unsurprising.

    if its true, it makes sense, megatron is dead. if they bring him back again it would just seem cliche

    Yeah; sounds to me more like it's just a voiceover job he does in post. If he's involved he won't know for another year.

    I thought he expressed the same sentiment for the past movies as well.

    Here's my favorite part, hope its true.

    "Bay has come out and said that the focus of “Transformers 4″ will be on its titular robots in disguise instead of their human allies"

    Sure he said the same schtick about ROTF, and look at how well THAT panned out...

    Bay has had three films to prove that he can do a decent 'Transformers' film. Only the first film seemed to have any real resemblance of what a TF film could be, the other two ultimately were action wank-fests with giant robots.

    he's right,

    and as u can see in the same link weaving had no idea bay was working in a third film. if megatron is in it, then maybe hugo wasnt contacted, naturally they dont hire/rehire voice actors after filming is done

    Lol! Yea we've heard that before. Though I admit DOTM did a better job, it was still pretty human saturated.

    As much as I like the Bayverse, this statement is 100% accurate.

    This is probably a good opertunity to get a new actor for Galvatron.

    Oh, the irony. Fanboys scream for more robots and, when they get it, it becomes an 'action wank-fest'.

    Well, if you oversimplify all complaints as "not enough robots" and then claim the fact the sequels literally had a higher number of robots was meant to address every complaint, then yeah I guess everyone is a bunch of hypocritical fanboys.

    I can see how itd be hard to be invested in a role when you only get 3 or 4 lines and a bunch of senseless growling per movie :p

    Thats my thoughts. Outside of us fanboys, would many people really say "that isn't what Megatron sounds like" if they replaced him in the 4th film. I liked him and all as the voice of Megatron, but its not like we heard him say more than a few lines each film.

    Well, they don't need him to. As far as I remember, TF4 is a reboot.
