    "That’s the simple logic that we employed. The longer term implication of that is different. But the short-term implication of that is, since we really are resetting the mythology, essentially, of who Bumblebee is."

    Interesting statement.

    So no Erik Aadahl. Thank Primus. Also fun fact, he was a contender for Spider-Man once.

    It's strange that they kept that secret for the trailers, only to reveal it a few days before the movie gets released.

    (It doesn't bug me to know it, because we've seen other hints.)

    I thought the same thing...

    Not going to be a spoiler anymore. This'll be plastered all over the internet. Plus I think they just revealed his for marketing purposes.

    Interesting.
    And good, if you ask me. Radio voice is only cute for so long.

    Okay. But can we not have Bumblebee as the focus of the film franchise\' future?

    So basically "since we really are resetting the mythology" = reboot.

    Good, that's all I needed to hear.

    The only spoiler is if the final script has Barricades cameo.

    Honestly I'd been assuming we'd hear him speak in the film for a long time now, on the basis that I figured the movie would show us how he lost his voice on-screen (over-writing the longstanding "Megatron did it" explanation from ancillary media). In that context I don't know that these "mythology-resetting" comments are any more meaningful than the other vague uses of the word "reset" and "reboot" that have been thrown around during this thing's production, but I suppose the answer will be what state Bumblebee's voice will be in at the end the movie, versus the beginning...

    I find it amusing how they dance around the issue of this being a reboot, it's nice to mostly hear them confirm it. This is just further evidence for my theories.

    I wouldn’t get too excited that he means reboot. He could very well just be saying we’re seeing a new side to Bumblebee, thus “resetting” what we already know about his past.

    If he'll be able to talk then maybe he can have a personality. If he has a personality then maybe he'll actually be a character we'd like to see more of for once. One thing might fix the other.

    Those are strange choice of words then. He could have easily said something like "we are essentially looking uncover the past of who Bumblebee is" or a billion other avenues instead of saying "resetting the mythology". It seems oddly intentional, as were his previous statements when he brought up the idea of an alternative timeline.

    Not a bad choice for voicing the bug.

    No, but seriously, why would they announce this?! Bumblebee talking?! We've only been waiting to hear Bumblebee talk for the first time ever for over a decade! You know, if you don't count when he talked at the end of the first movie. Or when he talked at the end of the last movie. :rolleyes:
