    Being completely honest. The character of Mirage was meant to have been killed during the DOTM film and was in the adaption and book. The character barely had any speaking lines and was referred to as Dino. So)

    1. Mirage/Dino shouldnt return
    2. Noone should replace Francesco Quinn as the voice actor for a robot who should not be returning
    3. The only confirmed characters returning are Optimus and Bumblebee so i doubt they`ll bring along Dino who was pretty much 'Sideswipe version 2' in the film.

    You can't just completely remove the character though without killing him on screen (If TF4 ends up being a direct continuation). It already happened with the Twins and Jolt and that was a huge plot hole. Just get another Italian actor to voice him. Sideswipe's voice actor changed from ROTF to DOTM and no one really noticed.

    Although I doubt they would bring him back regardless due to the toy licensing alone, it is not like the voice actors mattered for most of the cast in these films. They could have him speak like Mario, and no one would care.

    If they can ignore the twins and Jolt for reasons less then they can ignore Dino. That character was a train wreck the second Ferrari started making calls they didn't deserve to make. Hell, Dino should never have happened. All his scenes would have worked for Sideswipe and I would have preferred the added screen presence for Swipes.

    Yeah...he's not that important of a character to really lose a lot of sleep over recasting him. No disrespect meant to Francesco (sp?), but with the minor role his character play (/spoke), as long as the replacement VA spoke with an Italian accent, no one but a few movie fans would notice or care. Take Sideswipe for example. If, for some bizarre reason, they wanted to give Dino the spotlight in TF4, I would be completely behind the idea of Antonio Banderas taking over (despite the difference in nationalities between he and Quinn). But that right there would take quite the chunk out of the budget simply to cast him. :lol 

    Plus, this would all be assuming that Dino returned in TF4. If they don't want him to, he doesn't have to. They can always pull a Jolt/The Twins. It's not like his character was plot-changing anyway.

    They did it with the twins and jolt for a reason. They were 'minor' characters that bay didnt wanted in the films. Dino is another that bay wanted. Its a reboot/evolution of the series, in all likelyhood Dino will not return. Oh and just clarifying; Noone would notice a voice change with Sideswipe because he had barely any lines.

    Totally agree. Dino was the Jolt of DOTM, except somehow Dino was less important to the plot comparatively despite having more robot mode time on screen (Jolt at least gave Prime the Jetfire armor, Mirage did absolutely jack shit aside from maybe killing one of the dreads from a scene I'm having trouble remembering).

    No one. He will probably get killed in the prequel comics for the next movie.

    Dino is not an important character and didn't even get that much dialogue.

    He will not return.
