    How do I know this? Well I might just be connected to Paramount or Dreamworks somehow(like I'd give my source). Thought it'd be fun to start it here since someone told me this is the big transformers site.

    The first guy was terrible so why not make sense and bring in Marty if the character itself is somewhat based on his character.

    And contractual obligations mean nothing, you really think it's hard to get rid of a guy who had 2 lines, off camera? Terrence Howard was under contract and was replaced for Iron Man 2 and he was a main actor.

    Sam Witwicky was written to model "Marty" from Back to the Future. (heard it somewhere here...)

    And personally I think Mark Ryan did a good job.

    In before :locked2:

    ya... Bumblebee's movements and stance we're based on Michael J. Fox this is common knowledge. like Optimus being based on Liam Neison.
    Mark Ryan is providing the voice, this was already established by many people involved. obviously you dont have sources, or your source is a moron.

    You don't.

    You're not.

    The internet doesn't count as a "source".

    You would have known that ages ago if you had any connections at Paramount or Dreamworks, which as we've already established, you don't.

    Are you asking or stating? If this was confirmed, you wouldn't need to spell it out. As it is, you're simply trying to turn wishful thinking into so-called legit rumor.

    In Hollywood, yes they do. You don't even need connections to know that - basic common sense will suffice.

    Whether it is or isn't is moot since we already know that Ryan got the gig again.

    He also stated HIMSELF that he was "under the impression that he was coming back" but was not 100% confirmed. Being inked AND locked into a multi-picture deal is a hell of a lot different than an open-ended handshake agreement... which is exactly what happened.

    Quit reading IMDB and believing it. Quit reading Wikipedia and believing it. Don't wait over a year to watch a DVD commentary to get your terribley out of date 'knowledge', show up on these boards (aka THE source for all things TF) and then attempt to pass off your personal hopes as being valid rumor. You're way, way, waaaaaaay out of your league, son.

    There's so many problems with this statement that I don't even know how to begin. You try to build up your credibility but then negate it with the "I'm not telling how" statement.

    Except we really *DO* have sources that can confirm/deny/"no comment" the information. We just can't always report on it sadly.

    And this is where you've lost ground with me. Anyone involved in the movie with inside knowledge that's going to share it isn't going to trash the first movie or anyone involved in the first movie, then turn arond and try to build speculation on an opinion.

    See previous statement.

    You're rumor mongering, hoping someone is going to take this rumor and run with it. The rumor is out of left-field with no basis or substance behind it, just "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if".

    Just for fun I researched your information that you registered with ... WTF connection do you have with a Middle Eastern form-data website?

    Bingo.

    When your thread is closed, it does not mean you should post the exact same thing in a new thread. So...closed. Do not post this thread again.
