Buster was the younger
Witwicky brother in Marvel. He was the older bro in Dreamwave.
Either way, I have a feeling they'll change his name from Buster to something else. They turned Spike into Sam, probably to make the character sound more "normal." Or, they might preserve Buster as a nickname or something.
Wahlberg is playing the father of the lead role, which is that of a high school girl.
The Witwickys' story is practically done, and using another
one kinda goes against the whole "fresh take with new characters" ordeal.
But then again, Bay said DOTM was his last movie, and yet here he is for TF4. The "fresh take with new characters" thing could mean anything, and there's nothing to stop them from going back on their word and giving us more of the same.
Technically, even if Wahlberg played Sam's older brother, it would still be considered a fresh take as long as the parents and Sam aren't featured in the movie. It'd be a new direction, just with another Witwicky.
Just my two cents' worth.
