    Title says it all
    Seems general audience does really miss Shia from hearing many people saying people got a good reaction when his photo is shown
    With tlk box office downturn they can bring him back and pair him with Marky (and either Civian or IZzy)
    Makes sense cos Unicron should be an extinction event and culmination of the tf movies..

    I think the "good reaction" to seeing his photo was more of seeing him as a joke, and it being a bit of a meta commentary on real-world Shia. I wouldn't mind seeing him be some kinda human villain in a future movie, could be funny.

    I'm not sure if they quite understand that if they got Shia, Megan or both to comes back, the movie would instantly make more money.

    Yea def with Shia. Shia with Marky double teamed with Prime and Bee, especially since Shia had a relationship with Bee and MArky with Prime

    I can't believe I'm saying this but I think TF6 needs to bring Sam back to improve the box office. I think it would re-energize the series for the general audience and would provide some great character dynamics with him being with Prime and Bee again as well as him meeting Cade.

    I doubt Shia would do it, but I think the series would generate a lot more interest from the public if he came back. I think Mikeala coming back could help also but it would probably have 2/3 the effect that Sam coming back would have.

    I'm so disgusted that I had to type that.

    Megan seems fine with Bay now since she did Ninja Turtles. And it's not like she has anything amazing going for her right now movie-wise.

    As for Shia, I know he doesn't want to come back, but if I was the head honcho at Paramount, I'd be begging him to reconsider.

    He can come back as older more mature Sam and a good foil for even older Marky
    He can also have a son with ROsie named....Daniel...who can be in transformers the next generation lol

    But would they necessarily be better movies? I think Marky Mark is a better lead than Shia.

    I'm not saying it'll be a better movie. From a business standpoint, they will be guaranteed more money.

    A lot of people still have the "Shia and Megan aren't in it so I'm not watching" attitude.

    I'll be honest and say that I actually liked Shia in the original trilogy. For all his bumbling he was relatable to me with the high school -> college -> adulthood arc that sorta paralleled mine in the 10 years since the first one. But that said, the arc is over now and I can't see his character going anywhere. If he came back I can't see it being good at all. I know this thread has gone the way of discussing the $$$, but it sounds like a disaster story-wise.
