Ever since fans learned that the upcoming Transformers Movie would be a reality, they agreed on two things. They wanted Peter Cullen back as Optimus Prime and Frank Welker back as Megatron. Well it looks like fans will only get part of their wish. It looks like Welker will not be backj as Megatron. Welker posted the following on his own website back on December 12, 2006:

"I am not really sure what's happening with the "Transformer" movie other than my talented friend Peter Cullen has been cast. Presently, I have not been offered any roles. They are doing a new series based on our old shows which neither Peter nor I were cast. I think Corey Burton is playing the new Megatron. He is a wonderful voice talent and a great guy, so it's nice to be replaced by folks you like at any rate."

Also notice that Welker mentions that Corey Burton will be playing the part of Megatron in a new Transformers series.

Keep in mind none of this has yet to be confirmed and it is only rumor at this time. The main reason being that Welker made these comments back on December 12, 2007 and on January 8, 2007 IESB reported that Welker was days away from signing on as Megatron.

The release date for the Transformers Movie is rapidly approaching. As we get closer to that date the number of interviews with the actors seem to increase. Recently Shia Labeouf, who plays Sam Witwicky in the film, has participated in another interview. This recent interview can be found in Total Film Magazine. Wankerton of Don Murphy's Message Board has posted some quotes from the interview. Here they are:

(Be warned these quotes do contain some foul language.)


"The Transformers can take any metal - your BBQ, your fax machine - and turn it into a fighting machine...."


"It's a coming of age story, with my character,Sam, becoming the hero in this chaos. Michael Bay just said to me 'You're going to get fucked up'.That was in wardrobe....."


"The movie takes place in a matter of hours, but it's on the run the whole time..."


"It's a 50-50 thing between CG and reality. When I saw Bumblebee built and standing, it's mind-boggling. It's like standing next to a moving building. Fucking insanity!"


"I've never seen anything like this shit. You can imagine a 50 foot robot, but you haven't seen them transforming on the freeway at 80mph in a fist fight. It's gonna be sick, man...."


"As far as the graphics goes, it's insane. Optimus Prime and Megatron are machines with faces, emotions. There's 150 components just to make the mouth smile. It's nuts!"
