Yeah I just read this. Looks like he won't be speaking in the movie.
Double post. Ignore this.
“He doesn’t stand around and talk,” Mr. Farrar said. “He just fights.”
"You have to read Shockwave through just the emotions of the face, almost like a silent-era movie star.”
Are they implying that Shockwave has emotions? That is illogical!
I really appreciate the care they seem to have put into Shockwave.
Can't wait to see him onscreen. <3
Damn why does he have to look like a total badass!
he'll talk, probably during his fights with Prime, and Megatron
not unless exploding is counted as speech.
Yeah, I didn't take that quote to be the be-all, end-all, "Shockwave never speaks".
Even if he didn't, that actually makes the character more badass. I LOVE the idea of Shockwave expressing himself with the intensity of his eye alone.
It looks like the military figured it out that Shockwave cannot look up and they are dropping in right above him
Agreed. I love that Shockwave is literally the hardest bot of their entire race.
So BB and Shocks will give each the silence treatment...
I was hoping for Shockwave to have some awesome voice, like Liam Neeson's. Oh well, I'll just enjoy Shockwave for what he is.
Either that or they are about to SAY HELLO TO SHOCKWAVE'S LITTLE FRIEND!
And it's disappointing that he won't talk in the movie, but honestly? If played well, that can make him the very definition of BAMF.
I can picture very awesome scenes with our silent Shockwave, like:
*Optimus and Shockwave prepare to the final showdown*
*Shockwave lowers his head slowly, the camera pans around him with a omnious latin chanting background, he cocks the gun on his right hand, then raises his head and his eye glows to a more angry red tone*
= Badassery in solid form.
The only REAL downside of his lack of talk is that we now won't have the awesome dialogue I enviosioned for Shocky's death:
*Optimus punches Shockwave's eye, shaterring it and making him fall to his knees, dying*
"This. is. Illogical." *Shockwave dies*
To be utterly clear, they compared the effort they put into his eye emoting to that of a silent movie star, they didn't say he doesn't talk. "...Almost like a silent-era movie star." They say he doesn't stand around and talk, not that he never, ever speaks.
But yeah, while a silent, constantly glaring Shockwave would be cool, chances are he'll talk.
Gilbert Gottfried was busy
Do you remember filming and they showed the one guy land on the tall crane and looked to get SHOCKED/electrocuted? I bet this is the same scene and that guy lands on Shockwave and Shock fries him lol
thats what i was thinking, but they said here that he was computer generated.
aw.... I was hoping for a g1/russian accent from shockwave
