So... this question came about after a discussion with my son. Now he's 11 and he hasn't read any of the MTMTE comics but I've told him how Megatron turned Autobot and through this they've given him IMHO (which I believe is shared by a few others) some of the best character development he's ever gotten. I'm wondering if he returns in RID season 3 if they may take a similar approach. Well my son has observed, as we all have, that after the first film Megatron seemed pretty much unnecessary. So he suggested they do something like the comics. Make him switch sides... and I was thinking... not necessarily a bad idea. Maybe not full on start wearing the Autobot badge but perhaps an alliance with the Autobots against a greater evil (perhaps Unicron... along the lines of what TFP did). Now granted I don't think anyone would try to argue that the films have given us deep character development. And there are fx budget limitations to consider. But, it got me thinking. Since they say they have an actual plan in place now, it would be doable. As I told my son, people love a redemption story. And the thing about it if the villain switches sides, he can "win". Not sure if general audiences would accept it though. Would depend on how it was handled I think. And that would depend on just how good this new writing team is. Well, hell, a lot of things depend on that writing team.
