The reason I think Michael Bay killed Megatron off so easily in DOTM.

    I don't think he was doing it to rush like everyone says. I believe that this is their way to bring in GALVATRON!

    I don't.

    Also, that thing is hideous.

    Methinks he did it as a last minute decision to kill off any possible thread for a sequel.

    We all know how that turned out, though.

    I didn't make that picture. I'm just giving an example of what I think Galvatron will look like if he IS in TF4.

    He did it because he wanted to tie up as many loose ends as possible and didn't want the hassle of actually having a story that did so in a meaningful way as part of a coherent, ongoing narrative.

    Couldn't fit in as many explosions that way.


    I actually ain't mad at that kitbash. There's some aspects that look ridiculous, but there are a few, like the crown and the shoulders, that I think look pretty good.

    He did it because he want the end of his involvement with Transformers in a way that would wrap up the story instead of handing the story off to someone else. In interviews he even said that Transformers would be able to go on after he was done, but it would have to be some sort of reboot.

    Any Decepticon that could have continued on the war is killed in Dark of the Moon to wrap up the war. Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, and Soundwave, all dead so the war ends.

    Actually, Optimus killed off Megatron, not Bay :) 

    Serious answer for me is: It wouldn't have made sense for Optimus and Megatron's fight to be any longer than it was, given the shape the two were in. Op was missing an arm and Megatron is a shadow of his former self due to his injuries from RotF, yet better off than Prime. OP had to take him down quickly because if he didn't Megatron would've dusted him.

    I actually kind of agree with that. People just need to THINK a bit before they start making accusations towards Bay for how he does things.

    This, basically.

    He wanted everything tied up quickly for the end of his "trilogy".

    The entire movie after Megatron beat up Sentinel seemed rushed. They didn't even have the epilogue scenes or much of a final speech like the last two. I honestly believe the reason it was so short was because they ran out of time or money. It just seems weird that given how Optimus and Sentinel had a big fight, and Optimus, Megatron, Starscream and Grindor all had a huge fight in ROTF that he'd just decide on a brief skirmish for the final battle. That's like a chocolate addict deciding that his last meal should be half a Kit-Kat.

    I would have liked it if OP and Megs went their separate ways, that way he could return in TF4 as an anti-hero(Bayverse could use one). It would be especially cool if he still had his Decepticon head. :)

    Becuase Bay is a dick and doesn't want Megatron's charecter development completed.


    It was the biggest middle finger ever and why i hated this film.
