    so i got a question, i was watching transformers tonight, and towards the end, right after sam kills megatron, optimus prime says to megatron as he dies, "You left me no choice, brother"

    so... this brings up a very interesting question. is optimus prime referring to him as a brother, like an old comrade? or is he referring to him as an actual "brother"?

    I'm sure no one hear knows the correct answer. but do you guys think it's possible that Optimus prime and megatron ARE brothers?

    i only say this, because i know there has been "brothers" in the past in transformers, so is bay trying to say that they are related? that would make an interesting story/plot in the next movie.

    so what do you guys think?

    Didn't Cullen say Prime and Megs were like those two Biblical brothers who fought?
    I can't remember their names right now, too tired.

    Not sure what spoilers are in there! But according to the novel, they were brothers, litterally.

    What gets me is Prime says that after Megs is killed by Sam... who just did something Prime did not anticipate! Prime's line there is kinda out of place IMHO.

    Writers were asked this at the BotCon panel, and said unequivocably that there isn't an actual answer, at least as far as they're concerned, and that they left it as something to explore in the future.

    So it could be literal brothers, or brothers-in-arms, or brother Cybertronians, or something else, or something that will never come back up again.

    Exactly, it woulda been more fitting in the ending in the game before Megatron leaps at him.

    hmm sounds to me maybe they changed the end then?

    in other words, maybe original sam wasn't supposed to kill megatron?

    Exactly, good answer. The writers could care less what the dialogue was like. It was just a popcorn flick. Big bangs and cool special effects. Thats what you went to see. It'd be like going to a Vin Diesel movie and expecting to see Shakespearean acting. Not gonna get it. Lil Formers had the best take on the script of the TF movie. The TFs could have literally talked like that and the movie would still have done well.

    They're literally brothers. The movie kind of backed away from the references, but the novels and the game states it more explicitely.
