    Just interested in anyones thoughts on Shockwaves role in DOTM.

    I remember reading that David Warner was considered for the voice role after Corey Burton turned it down, and after witnessing Shockwaves 10 mins of screentime in the finished film it makes me wonder if he had a much bigger role in earlier drafts?

    As mentioned in my 'Trilogy re-shuffle' post I originally thought DOTM would have Shockwave come to Earth with an invasion force, possibly overthrowing Megatron as leader of the Decepticons, but after seeing the movie I was way off.

    The David Warner thing has always been just a rumor, never confirmed that he was even contacted by Paramount.

    Corey Burton was just responding to questions and speculation from fans, again never contacted for voice over work.

    Shockwave may have had a slightly bigger role, but I doubt he was ever meant to actually be the main villian. SP was always meant to be the "lead villian". That's the impression I got when Bay said they had a great script written last year, therefore moving the release to 2011.

    Shockwave came to earth to sell toys, just like the rest of the Transformers.

    Yeah I think it was Bays misinformation actually working this time around.

    Even that's too generous, I bet it's no more than 1 minute - I'll bet, and you can quote me on that. I'd like to time it once the DVD comes out...

    Shockwave essentially trolled the fandom.
