For Transformers 3 So are they going to keep Mikaela Banes character alive but not there, kill her off or simply have this new girl walk in and play the same character lol. also this has been on my mind and i know it happened in the Revenge of the Fallen but does anyone think it will play out like in the 1986 movie? Where Optimus dies, passes down the Matrix of Leadership to Ultra Magnus. Does anyone think something similar may happen? Like Bay actually kills Optimus off (seeing as it's the last movie) and he passes down that weird looking Matrix, if he still even has it..to either Bumblebee (since he is the main character, basically Hot Rod, Rodimus Prime?) or something similar? also do you think he may go the J K Rowling way in the last Harry Potter? i would put it there but may be a spoiler to some? lol..i think most people can think of how it ended..
