    That would be a...weird choice.
    I still don't know about a TF4. If Shia isn't returning, then what are we going to do about Bumblebee?

    It will be obvious. Let's fast-forward 20 years. Sam is now a dunken carjacker/hitman. In the opening scene, we'll see some Autobot (probably Ultra Magnus) telling him (in flashback sense) that Bumblebee got captured by some government and was taken apart. Then halfway through the movie, he'll show up as Goldbug and be able to talk. At the end of the movie he'll get killed by Starscream, who's been rebuilt by Unicron.

    Its real easy to figure out how TF series are going to go, just grab a bunch of stuff someone else already wrote up and toss it in there.

    I kind of wish they'd replace Bumblebee. He's been a fun character, but he's been overused. Time for some new blood.

    I think the next movie...SHOULD HAVE Z-E-R-O HUMANS. Won't happen, but that's how it should be.

    I vote Bruce Willis.

    But if Bruce Willis were in these movies than the Autobots wouldn't be needed to defend Earth from the Decepticons.

    You are confusing Bruce Willis with Chuck Norris...

    I honestly wanna see Lennox be the main focus. I like him way more than any of the other human characters.

    I like Simmons more, but do a movie with the three togehter [Simmons, Lennox and Epps] and awesomeness would be made.

    I don't care if humans are in it, but I don't want them to be the focus. The movie is called TRANSFORMERS not HUMANS.

    Me too. It'd also be more sensible - I kinda agree with the annoying government lady from DotM when she keeps getting surprised how Sam keeps getting involved.

    At least Lennox has a reason.

    Perhaps with a potential new trilogy the stars will backout. Maybe a cameo - Sam and Carly going on honeymoon, Lennox leaving NEST (promotion?) and handing over to a new guy. If Statham is involved it'd be a neat role for him to play.

    +1. No offense to Shia, because in my book the guy's a pretty good actor, but his douchey, off-camera life-style has definitely put a few chinks in his armor.

    But I'm still of the mind that if you're making a movie about Transformers, make the main character a TRANSFORMER.

    I like Simmons, and I would love for him to come back and do a fourth. But I don't think he should be the main character, his comic-relief roles in the other movies work just fine, IMO.
