    The following is full of spoilers from the novel involving Shockwave. If you don't wanna get spoiled then GTFO.

    After reading the book it hit me. Shockwave barely ever if at all speaks...l. Only twice does he try to talk and thats when he tells the driller to take down the sky scraper the mercs, Sam and carly were in. I'm not even sure if he actually said.

    The only other time he tried to talk was when optimus punched him so hard in the face it knocked his jaw off.

    I think Shockwave is so ruthless, emotionless and mission driven that he only talks when it seems necessary. Such as giving an order to the driller or actually about to die.

    I guess to him it's so illogical to speak unless it's absolutely necessary. I kinda like that though, makes him seem more creepy.

    I personally hope he gets more love in the actual film.

    I wish he really was the main bad guy, but hey, the plot is pretty good already.

    :(  I hope he speaks more in the actual film. TFP already made soundwave silent. Let's hope Bay gives Shockie a voice.

    I hope he hardly speaks. It'll be better for his character I think. It would be cool if his voice sounded like some type of industrial machinery clashing or something. Like you can kind of tell words apart but not much. Just an awesome metal sounds clashing. But that's just me.

    I could careless if he speaks or not. he already has a rather "plain" face him not having a voice will just add too this emotionless con.

    If he doesn't talk, then the "OMG IT'S NOT COREY BURTON" crowd can go away.

    I think he talks more in the movie.

    Reason 1: I read the comic and it he talks more.

    Reason 2: Although Corey Burton refused the role, they are thinking about David Warner.

    Yeah, she had 52 lines of dialogue while Optimus only had 29. But one must also consider...Optimus was "dead" for almost an hour of the 2.5 hour movie. And more 'dialogue' does not mean 'more substantial'. Consider: "We placed it under human protection under your government's request. But I'm here for your help, Sam. Because your leaders believe we've brought vengeance upon your planet. Perhaps they are right. That is why they must be reminded by another human of the trust we share." and "General, our alliance has countermanded six Decepticon incursions this year; each on a different continent. They're clearly searching around the world for something, but last night's encounter came with a warning." VS. "Hey! It's my cheat day, I can eat whatever I want!" and "Oh, my little booty-baby-boy!" :p  Optimus' role obviously had more presence and gravitas than Sam's mom.

    I just hope that Sentinel Prime can get a substantial amount of screentime and dialogue. *crosses fingers*

    I'm fine with having humans in the movies, I'm even fine with having said human characters have a lot of screentime. It's when there's dozens or random minor human characters that are thrown in for little-to-no reason and when they get more dialogue than most of the 'Bots and 'Cons, that's when it annoys me. Let's have a small cast of only the most essential human characters. Sam, Carly, Lennox, Epps, Simmons, Dylan. Main cast, done. Supporting: Ron and Judy, John Malcovich (sp?), Ken Jeong and that government lady. Done. That'd be a fine cast of humans. That's my thoughts.

    And I'm not sure how I feel about Shockwave speaking/not speaking. I need to think about it more. ...

    Every movie needs a General Grievous. Just be glad it's not the main villain that becomes one like in ROTF

    If it is David Warner, I would think they would announce it by now.
