    mean he is the fallen...If he dies early on in the film he could be the one sam is trying to resurrect,,,maybe bay and co have this as the twist...thats why prime never gets out the usa and the story could evolve around thie resurrection of prime..Thats why prime and jetfire combine, jetfire has to take him somewhere to be resurrected....

    Prime isn't the type to want "Revenge" though.

    No, I don't think Prime's going to die in the movie. Maybe in the third one, but I don't see him being the one referred to as the fallen. That would be Megatron.

    I don't think will or should die in this movie universe. Just because it happened in the cartoon doesn't mean it has to happen in the movies.

    The killing Prime thing has been way over done so I've got my fingers crossed that the movie doesn't kill off Prime.

    Yeah, that's what I've been thinking ever since that spoilerish report dropped last week. They could be introducing Megatron's resurrection simply to explain that Robots can be resurrected, so that if and when Prime dies, there will be that option.

    I'm not sure about the timeline though. Everybody has been saying that Jetfire and Optimus combine (probably for the climax of the film). So keep that in mind for the future.

    Can we spoiler tag the title of this thread?

    You know I hope it doesn't happen but this is a pretty clever thought.

    If prime dies AGAIN, it will devestate populations, destroy homes, and kill millions of innocent people, all before breakfast the next day......

    Incidentally, since it's Prime he'll also be brought back to life before breakfast the next day too.

    There is no way prime dies in any meaninful way. Absolutely no way. If he is brought back by the end of the movie, it should be called "severely injured". And like others have said: prime doesn't seek revenge.

    I'm hoping "the fallen" is megatron. Or perhaps just referring to the decepticons in general. After all, most of the general masses wouldn't even think the fallen the name of some particular bot ala Dreamwave.

    Remember when they did this in 1986? It didn't go over so well then either. Killing Optimus Prime would be like killing Duke or Snake Eyes in GI Joe. I don't see how Hasbro would allow that.

    But if he DOES die, then oh well.

    And yet, look at other continuities where Optimus Prime died but then brought back to life again. Two such cases I'm aware of:

    1) Armada -- he dies defending the Earth, then couple episodes later he is brought back to life thanks to the Mini-Cons.
    2) Animated -- he died, but within seconds Sari's key in conjunction with the All Spark brings him back to life.

    Kill Prime off? NO. Just IMAGINE the chaos that would ensue if he died in the movie. Hearts would be broken. People would cry in the theater the moment he died.
