    Speculation here, pure speculation:

    There hasn't been a voice actor mentioned for Shockwave yet is because its possible Shockwave won't talk.
    Think about it. Shockwave is just this powerful being that communicates enough through the gaze of his one eye. Shockwave speaks more through his actions then words.

    Wouldn't it make Shockwave all the more powerful to be that way. Have this big bringer of death just tear things apart, blow stuff up, kill people, strike fear in both Autobots AND Decepticons all without saying a word.

    His origins and reasons for doing what he is doing can all be brought up through other characters dialog.

    I do realize Corey Burton said that possibly David Warners name has been thrown around but nothing has been finalized or anything.

    I think it makes Shockwave more powerful not to say anything at all.

    Thoughts? And this is just for discussion not an argument as to that this is or isn't going to happen. Just...thinking about it.
    Would it make Shockwave more powerful that way?
    Is it possible that is what Bay is doing as no voice actor has been confirmed/named?

    Shockwave =/= Bumblebee


    I think It'd be kind of stupid to have a non-speaking Shockwave. I want him to be awesome for the thinks he SAYS. Shockwave is(or was) cold and intelligent. Silence wouldn't convey that well. Making him mute would give him less of an impact as a character.

    Give it some time. We haven't had voices for any of the other new characters mentioned yet does that mean they'll be mute too? It's still a tiny bit early to start guessing about stuff like this.

    Agreed. Shockwave WILL talk. I'm positive about that. It would be a terrible decision to make him mute.

    You mean like most of the Movie-verse Decepticons we've seen thus far?

    Keep the weak mute, like BB. I'm sure Shockwave will have some lines.

    im pretty Sure the vocie actors for all Characters Will be revealed NEXT Year, Becuase on 2009, Few days before ROTF Was released they Revelaed All the Voice Actors and Characters Names

    the stuff I bolded from your quote is a very good point and I'd agree with you.

    I'm not trying to make this a bumblebee thing. Bumblebee uses the radio etc giving him a cuteness I'm talking about Shockwave conveying no sound but I see the other posters thoughts about what makes Shockwave Shockwave is the things he says thereby also expressing his intelligence. Perhaps keeping him mute would make him seem more like a brute/bully and not cold, calculating and intelligent, so good points TfanimatedFan

    The reason why is because they just started post-production. Is it that hard to figure out?

    Hi there,
    perhaps you would like to re-read the original post. As I mentioned before this is simply a "what if" discussion not saying that they won't get a voice actor or complaining that they haven't. Is it that hard to figure out?

    The reasons for Shockwave being a nonspeaking character being an idiotic idea aside, this means absolutely nothing. We didn't find out much about the voice actors for the first one until right before the film came out. For ROTF, we didn't even find out who was voicing Jetfire, Devastator, Rampage, Sideswipe, Mudflap, or Arcee until the film even came out in the UK.

    I realize that we will eventually get a voice actor named for Shockwave this is just a what if SHockwave were mute and we never hear about a voice actor, etc what if what if what if

    I think he will speak. Clear, concise and to the point. I think that is how he will speak.

    On IMDB it lists Corey Burton as the voice for Shockwave.

    It would be difficult to write a script and plot the movie if he couldn't talk, what would his motives and plans be? The idea that he can speak through his eye is clever, but hard to follow. Maybe he could talk telepathically, or something logical. Maybe he could act like Mindwipe? :O

    IMDB and Wikipedia are NOT credible sources of information, STOP using them as a reference for a subject like this.

    Wikipedia is suspect but I always thought IMDB was a credible source where professionals list what they are doing.

    It's pretty accurate for movies that have been released, but rarely for upcoming stuff. Besides, Corey Burton himself has said that he's not interested in DOTM.
