    I'm wondering if TF4 even needs to have Optimus Prime in the next sequel to be profitable. I think he's run course, and it's time for some new Autobot to take center stage. The question is "Who should lead the Autobots if Prime is terminated"?

    Nobody as it will never happen. To even remotly think they will kill off Prime in the movies for a new leader is wishfull fanboyisim at its best.

    They replaced Optimus once and you can still hear the screams of despair from the children of the 80s through the timestream.

    No. Optimus (or AN Optimus at least) will always be the leader in every TF iteration. That's how it's been since they brought him back, and I doubt they'll change it now.

    I'd love to see a new cast of characters operating at different locations, led by Rodimus. No need to kill Optimus off either, just reduce his role a little.

    I voted Springer because I want LSOTW the movie!

    But seriously they've come out and said that OP & BB Will be back and probably the only two returning.

    Much like the similar bee thread going on, HasTakaramount has sunk a ton of resources into promoting Optimus as "king autobot", and they'd be dumb to throw that away from a business standpoint, unless the movie is a complete reboot.

    Fanboyism is what kept Prime, not just the only recognizable character in the franchise, but even kept his voice intact. Also, it's what brought Prime back after he got killed in the 86' film. It's wishful thinking, but the movies aren't being made by someone with a deep attachment to the material, so I think he might consider changing things up for the sake of keeping things fresh.

    Ha! Nice joke. No way we'll ever have anybody apart from Optimus Prime as the leader of the Autobots in a film.

    I'd really like to see the Magnus played by Liam Neeson idea happen but not as a replacement for Optimus. Having the two of them as the main characters but having them butt heads along the way would be awesome.
