Mark Ryan will be back once again to reprise his roles
Mark Ryan returns for Transformers: RotF!
I hope this means Bumblebee will talk more in TF2. I mean, I liked the whole speaking through his radio in the first one, but I think he needs to have actual conversations with Sam in the sequel.
I would hope so. I hate it when they change actors in a series of movies and make nothing of it (See: Kitty Pryde in all 3 X-Men movies).
Yay so BB is actually gonna be talking a bit.
Nice to see Mark back and enjoying himself on set. He was fun to watch in the making of stuff for the first one directing the actors and standing in for the bots.
Not surprised one bit though he did a bad VERY bad job as bumblebee doesn't fit the character what-so-ever.
That's great! We'll finally get to hear Bumblebee talk more this time around!
I always thought Mark Ryan was primarily hired to voice the Transformers during filming and BB's line at the end of the movie was kind of a bonus or a "thanks" or something. Hopefully if BB talks throughout the 2nd movie, he (Mark) will use a different voice than the one used in the first movie. Didn't sound like the voice fit the character personality, IMO.
Agreed. Nothing against Mr. Ryan's talent, but something a little closer to Bumper Robinson's BB in Animated would be better IMO.
Hmm, one hand I like the idea of Bumblebee speaking more in the sequel, but on the other hand I'm gonna miss those mysterioua/magical moments when he speaks through the radio. Also please get rid of the kind of accent which BB had at the end of TF1, it certainly didn't fit Bumblebee. They can easily tackle this by saying Bumblebee's vocal processors were not fully 100% cured yet back then.
True, easy to get by with considering his voice did sound pretty bad as in damamged and scratchy.
Yeah I mean it's not like he knew he was going to be doing that and had months to prepare and practice and nuance the perfect Bumblebee voice like Ledger and his Joker.
Bay was probably like "oh hey read this line" and he just winged it. I dunno. And it was only 12-15 words anyways.
Maybe they'll make someone else to talk with their radio, like Wreck-Gar or something.
His voice sounded very good in the Wal-mart film of the prequel comic.
"Ryan's back, back again. Ryan's back, tell a friend. Ryan's back Ryan's back Ryan's back
I was wondering what current actor could voice Bumblebee and now thanks to Grimlock2.0, I know the perfect choice. Michael J. Fox is PERFECT for Bumblebee! We all know his current health problems have effectively taken him away from the camera but a voice over job like this would be ideal for him and us. Honestly, I can't think of anyone better than him for Bumblebee.
To each their own, but he's all talent and class and would be great at interacting with Sam. There's definitely a lot of potential for some hilarious dialogue.
Well, I kinda hope the voice is a little better in this one and we hear more of it, the whole "radio talking" thing got old in the first movie. But I think I wont really be able to judge it till I see the new movie.
