    This was a really good and interesting interview. He literally stole our words about Unicron: he's too big and there would be no way to stop it, it would be too boring.

    When we master Necromancy, actors will be the first to be brought back.

    Few things things this confirms.

    1. The reviews that say lockdowns boss is Unicron are all BS.

    2. Lockdowns ship is not Unicron nor will he be talked about.

    3. Unicron may come in at some point but its not looking like its any time soon. Soooo "they want you back" sure has nothing to do with Unicron.

    It would be really interesting if they used Unicron, but used a different take on the character, sorta like how he was handled in Prime.

    Yeah, I really thing the sixth film should be Bay's last and go out with a huge bang. I also think I like to see TF5's or TF6's final battle fought in Paris.

    I already saw Paris destroyed in GI Joe Ris of Cobra why not go to Alaska or Africa or somewhere so outta the ordinary, now that would be cool.

    man this guy really destroyed the idea they were doing an interlocking trilogy.


    other than getting a new cast, they weren't thinking ahead at all about how the movies will flow together.

    I always have mixed feeling with Lorenzo Di Bonaventure interviews.

    On one hand he's enough of a geek that he can talk about things from geek culture while making it sound like first hand knowledge rather than being coached by a marketing team. Which makes his interviews a better read or listen.

    But then there is a also that Hollywood side so sometimes it seems like he doesn't always grasp what geeks want because it's always side with the studio over the fans.

    At least I'm in agreement with him about Unicron in a live action film. Although if they keep killing Decepticons at some point they are going to be out of A list villains.

    I'm sure he just didn't want to give anything away.

    Yeah I hate to break to the author of this article but...uh...Orson Wells might be kinda hard to cast in a VA role these days.

    It didn't stop The Critic from using Orson Wells. (Orson Wells voiced by Maurice LaMarche)
