    We saw how visceral Optimus was in DOTM and I'm wondering if Steven Spielberg takes over the franchise will he be like Bay's Optimus Prime or will he be more like the G1 prime we're used to.

    I'd like a new, fresh take on Optimus. If we get a reboot, I don't want a straight-up G1 redo or a straight-up Movie redo. I don't want Prime to be generic heroic noble always right good leader or an overpowered bloodthirsty homicidal psychopath leader.

    Is that too much to ask?

    For a live action film, I agree with you. I've felt at times that this version of Prime was a bit off, but if you're envisioning a world where Transformers really exist, I can't imagine Optimus Prime wouldn't be as Bay presented him. He's been fighting this war for ages, and then watches it threaten another planet.

    I felt like when this Optimus said "At all costs", he meant it.

    Honestly, I don't know if I would like Stevens verison of Transformers. There would be too much focus on kids and not enough on the bots. I don't think the action scenes would be as mind-blowing as some of them are.

    In TF4 I want Optimus to stay the same. Be the Optimus we have seen in the past three films. Decepticons are ruthless animals. Someone needs to take care of them, no matter how sadistic.
