    What if they decide Cullen isn't what they want for Prime. What if they do sell out (in our fanboy opinion) and go with a big name star to try and bring in more dollar signs.

    Will you still see the movie? Will you cringe everytime Prime speaks?

    As long as the voice fits, is well acted, and has no similarity to Cullen's Prime, I'll be fine. If they hire somebody who's going to try to imitate Cullen, It will render the movie unwatchable to me.

    For me, it has to be either Cullen, or somebody completely different. Chalk's foe Cullen voice is a large part of why I can't watch the dubs of the newer shows. I have no problem Kaye's Megatron, because he's not trying (and failing) to sound like something I grew up with.

    Chalks Primal rocked, that is what i miss. if he did his prime like his primal, it would be way better, but saddly, he is trying a cullen, not a primal. immatations is not the way to go, just as long as they do their own primes, i'm ok with it, like Greyryder said.

    i also have this feeling that Welker won't get megatron. just a hint in the air tells me that.

    I'll watch the movie, I won't cringe but I'll do as did wirh Return of the king. I'll never watch it again. Oh, just FYI, if the fan comments are negative I won't go to the theater to watch it. I'll just wait a month and get me an ilegal copy of the internet. Why waste money on sh*t?

    I'll live with it. Provided the dialogue is true to Optimus it shouldn't be too bad.

    Regardless of if Cullen gets it or not......

    the dialogue may be terrible.

    In which case i'd almost rather he didn't do it.

    Judging by the current cast,I HONESTLY doubt they'll go for a big name.I mean most of the human cast are actors from network TV shows.And Tyrese isn't REALLY an actor more an R&B singer/model

    And using past Comic genre movies,X-Men,Spider-Man,Superman Returns.Most of those people weren't really Big Name Stars.So following that trend I feel that they'll get good VAs

    I'm pretty sure the movie will be viewable if the fans want it to be.If you go expecting to enjoy it you will,if you go expecting to hate it you will.It works that way with most entertainment

    Good point

    BAN THE MOVIE.

    I'm going to see the movie whoever gets the role. I'm just worried about the dialogue.

    I will cringe and be a pretty disappointed.

    I realize that the powers-that-be decided Cullen could audition for the role along with everyone else, but I still feel its sour to "hand" the role of Random Grunt Retard to Tyrese Gibson and have Cullen stand in the audition line.

    Of the few things that the fandom has been unanimous on, it's that. I think not shoeing in Cullen for the role of Prime is the biggest example of the producers taking the fandom's words, acknowledging them and then politely ignoring them. The other issues - Bumblebee's voice, who's who in the cast of Autobots vs. Decepticons, the Transformer screen time - those don't matter to me, so long as the movie is put together and executed well.

    But to know that Bay, Murphy, Spielberg, the Hasbro folks and etc. KNOW and HAVE HEARD that we want Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime and simply decided, "He can get in on the auditions if he wants"...that's just...I dunno, foul. Mean. Indicative of Hollywood bigheadedness. Frustrating.

    Now, honestly, that's the strongest opinion I have on this movie at this point. I may use hyperbole later on when the film comes out to boo it and/or applaud it, but that's honest-to-goodness, straight up opinion, well worded. You may quote me, point out where I'm wrong, split hairs or whatever - that's 100%, without a shadow of a doubt, where I stand on Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime.

    My general opinion is that the more they deviate from what has already been established, the less I will want to see it. It seems like they want to reinvent the franchise, which is a disaster waiting to happen.
