    What should the bare minimum force required to scratch his armor be?

    How much should he be able to lift?

    How strong should he be in comparison to Optimus and others?

    Knightverse Megatron should most likely be at the same power level he was in '07: an absolute force of immediate destruction. Completely capable of smashing his Optimus into the ground. Beaten only by a small bit of bullsh*t.

    But he shouldn't be as... animalistic. Bayformers Megatron growled, roared, and went on all fours at times. Knightverse Megatron should have the same characteristics as G1 Megatron (SUCH AS BEING A GUN).

    Bare minimum force to scratch his armor?

    A lot.

    He should be like he was in TF1 and Prime. He needs to be able to prove that he indeed was the champion gladiator

    G1 Megatron is capable of transforming into a gun and a tank. I'd like to see both, but if he turns into a gun, they should explain that while it's a vulnerability to be held by someone else, the gun is of incredible force.

    Get over the gun stuff, maybe he could turn into a giant Artillery piece but forget about a gun in the movies.

    Not only will general audiences not be able to grasp the rediculous mass shift fluff but Hasbro will never put in plastic ever! It also makes no sense considering his character, he likes to be in control threatening and imposing

    An Abrahms Tank Helicopter Gunship or Cybertronian Tank.

    I'll ignore your snappy attitude because I agree with your opinion.

    Considering that I'd kind of like to see them adapt "Warrior School!" from the early Marvel books as a sequel to "Bumblebee" - obviously with 'Bee in Ratchet's place - my ideal take on Knightverse Megatron would adhere to the following points:
    1) 'Bee on his own certainly isn't going to be a threat to him.
    2) The seven other Autobots who landed on Earth would be lucky just to put a dent in him, even if they WERE in anything resembling optimum working order (hint hint, if you've never read the story).
    3) The Dinobots, by contrast, would probably give him a time, but he could probably handle even them when it's all done.
    4) It would be up to Optimus to beat him, and even then that would probably only happen because Optimus is able to fight a smarter battle and play off of Megatron's psychology/ego.

    I don't want the all-bark-no-bite snarling-monster wussy-boy of the previous movies back, that's for damn sure. Nor do I just want Sunbow Megatron with added CGI detailing, either.
    Basically I want THIS personality...
    ...in THIS body...

    Sorry Im a G1 fan but continuing to insist on Megatron becoming a pistol despite the fact that we know it will not happen is irritating. People keep dying on that hill.

    That said I'd like to see a really scary Megatron. Like when he shows up main characters get their plot armor destroyed instantly, but at the same time he needs to exude intelligence. his character is really exactly like General ZOD. We need to see his backstory, we need to see his trials, the point at which his empathy is destroyed and he turns into the Tyrant.


    This is Megatron.

    Michael Shannon plays a good megatron even if he doesn't have the voice

    Enough for Optimus to hold his own briefly in short bursts but easily strong enough to be able to cause serious damage.

    I'm 100% with you for that design. Animated Megatron is one of my favorite Megatron designs. I'll be satisfied if they can make a helmet as great as his.

    I think it would be really neat to have this design make a comeback, even if they were to go with the Cybertronian jet mode version or at least take some inspiration.

    I personally want him to be a triple changer in the sense his gun mode is a static artillery weapon in the vein of a howitzer or some kind of alien railgun. To me that would show massive power even in an alt mode.

    His other mode could be aerial or ground based I couldn’t care as long as it looks awesome.

    I doubt we're getting a second knightverse. Didn't Travis Knight say he was doing one movie only? Wouldn't they get someone else to suck the heart he put back in, out of the franchise?

    I have not read Classics, but "Warrior School" was a issue I did like. I could see that becoming a thing for future movies. And if you've seen my Megatron Knightverse thread, I always dreamt of having Megatron either being a tank or a heavy attack helicopter like the Russian Hind.

    He was only signed up for one film, but he never said he was doing only doing one. In fact, he said he had ideas where he would like to see the franchise go next in an interview. It just depends on his availability (since he is directing The Six Billion Dollar Man and apparently the Uncharted film) and what Paramount wants.
