I know Shockwave is dead but they seemed to have killed him in a way that if they want him dead, it is believable he died and if they want him alive, it wouldn't be the most outrages thing ever. So, weather or not you think he is dead, do you want Shockwave to be alive in the next? Not a resurrection but have it, he never died. It would mean a lead Decepticon, that isn't one that we've barely heard of, or Megatron getting resurrected again. They could even have him with a old comic villain so they could please the fans of the comics. Personally, while I think he's dead, it would be cool if he was one of two main villains in TF4. The other would be a comic villain because they need some attention. Although he would probably suffer the same fate as Megatron and be extremely weaker than he was in his previous appearance.
