    I really want Frank Welker to voice Megatron in the new film but if he's not chosen then best of luck to whoever is voicing him. What do you think?

    It's yet to be confirmed, but it's probably likely.

    Frank Welker is the one and only Megatron as much as Peter Cullen owns Optimus..

    but in relation to your post, yes, i hope he will be back, but i thought rumor has it he will be Megatron's voice in TF5 since he voiced Galvatron in TF4

    Weaving's out and Welker's in...seems pretty obvious Megatron will likely be voiced by Welker in the movies now.

    I would assume so since I know Weaving won't.

    I mean, I would LOVE to hear Hugo Weaving's Megs again, but then, y'know ...

    I really want him to voice Megatron again, hopefully using his "TF: Prime" voice.

    David Kaye disagrees with that statement, especially considering he's voiced both.

    Tell me why you want Welker to voice Megatron please, because Galvatron didn't sound at all intimidating or terrifying.

    But that would require Hugo Weaving to accept and he's made it clear that he doesn't like being a voice actor. They would obviously go for the probably cheaper paid and more willing actor aka Frank Welker. Well at least I believe Frank Welker would be cheaper to pay for than Hugo Weaving... I'm not very familiar with actor pay wages.

    Welker did make Mgeatron sound terrifying in TFP so there should be no problem

    Why? DiMaggio isn't exactly known for making scary voices.
    Just funny ones.



    Though it would be entertaining to have him voice one of the Autobots.

    You really need to expand your View on voice actors more. DiMaggio would do Megatron Justice with his Zeno voice from TMNT & he is pretty much a fantastic voice match for Welker's Dr. Claw.

    As for the Scary voices? Well here's one.

    That is Pretty much Grimlock Worthy.
