The Movie Reporter has posted some rumors that have recently popped up. At this time, there is no reason to believe that these rumors are true. Or that the person who reported these knew exactly what was going.

Supposedly, this person was an extra on the set of the movie at the White Sands and Hollomans locations and posted these on the LS2 Forums The following has been taken directly from the article. Please keep in mind that The Movie Reporter is not reporting these as fact, but a possible rumors to take with a grain of salt.

POST #1 -

Can't wait...i'm in it as an extra.
I am a Navy Seal doing a battle scene against the Decepticons. I filmed out at White Sands and on Hollomans flight line. Filmed for 4 days and had a blast. Tons of pics on my Facebook.


No.I had to chase a bunch of villagers out of the area because the Decepticons were attacking, then -->> had to protect Optimus Prime's corpse <<--. There were a shitload of us out there.
The food and catering was awesome. A lot of downtime. Just like a deployment.
I did an interview for the DVD. We will see if that is on it too. The asked me a bunch of questions about the military. The autobots are behind me on top of a sand dune. I did a GM plug. They liked that.

Micheal Bay loves the military. I got to speak with him very briefly. He gets so angry on set at the actors but doesn't dare yell or demean the military. It was a trip. He said something to me like do you want a job as a DA (Directors Assistant), I said hell yeah. He was getting pissed at his DA. His DA was like trust me you dont want this job.

I have two closeup shots if they do decide to put them in the movie. One was walking with the camera on the tracks going along with me but at a slower pace. The camera was right on the side of my face following me but at a slower rate. There were two others behind me. The other close up was while I was defending from a corner of a building on one knee. The boom camera went from the ground to over head of us all. I was up front in the scene. The camera came up to my face then began to ascend over the area. It was pretty cool.

Another scene was Optimus getting dropped off by a chinook. I had to run up to the area then stop as Optimus was getting dropped.

Another was with Josh and Tyrese when they argue with The President on the flightline. I am in the background.

As much time as I spent filming (9-10 hours a day for 4 days) I hope I am seen at least once. Hell I'll be happy to be on teh DVD.

POST #3 from another member -

=boM=-, nice spoiler with the corpse bit... not gonna go over well with the people who didn't wanna know. lol


Maybe some one should edit the name of the thread.
Don't know if he stays dead, if it is in the begining or the end of the movie. They were secretive.
They never refered to him as being dead. They always said his body. So there no spoiler.

Not to sound heartless but honestly, I will not be surprised if the dead Optimus rumor is true. He's died in every other universe, why not this one?

It would be awesome to see the big OP go down as a hero per usual but Megatron isn't returning I thought.

Well if Prime does die that just means Hot Rod is up next for Bay to frak up. And another one of my favorites bites the dust and if my theory is true, i will never see a bay film again. I foresee after the 3rd installment we'll get a new director.

IMDB used to have a tagline that read "The Decepticons must be stopped... no matter the cost..". Considering the Constructicons, Soundwave, Megatron and the Fallen, not to mention that wicked hit Prime took in the superbowl spot, I wouldn't be supprised if he dies. Again. :sad:

not necessarily. Something else to consider: the popularity of the Animated series. Hot Rod/Rodimus may NOT be the next Autobot leader to make an appearance...Ultra Magnus might be. It would make sense- Optimus and he would be brothers and eventually additional armor would be needed to survive the subsequent fighting.

Just an idea...

One, I do not want Prime to die. I did not like it back in '86 (and every other time it has happened) and I don't like it now. I want a badass Optimus Prime that vanquishes his enemies. This movie is not about realism. It is based off of kids toys! The hero must die architype does not need to apply.

With that said, it would not surprise me to watch Optimus die. However, if I was directing the movie I would not kill off my star if I was planning on making a third installment. No sir. What I would do is lead the audience to believe Prime is dead, then after the credits roll I would show the fallen hero's face to see a glint of blue spark in his eyes.

So let me get this straight. Everybody complains that Bay doesn't stay to the original story, then there is a rumor OP dies and you complain again. You know personally I liked the last movie, it had its place to start a story, and I liked the styling of the transformers, Boxes are boring to transform back and forth. My only complaint is that all of the Autobots are GM. And you know what if Meg comes back why wouldn't Prime.

Maybe "die" is just how the extra viewed it. Perhaps he gets knocked into a coma from that attack in the teaser and is restored from whatever enables him and Jetfire to merge together.

I have never complained about Bay's take on transformers. I like the style. For me, it makes the idea of machine based life forms from a mechanized world believable.

What I do not like is Optimus being killed. Personal preference. I like Prime, I have always liked Prime (he was my favorite when I was watching G1 back in grade school), and I always want him to be alive.

Thinking about it now, no, I don't want him killed. Something's lame about killing Megs, bringing him back, then killing Prime, to probably have him return. Let's have him go down hard, get damaged, but survive. Let's have The Fallen die.

This (Primes "Death") could very well mean that the fans could get their shiny, all red, brand spanking new flat nosed semi rolling through a crowd of decpticons then transforming and kicking ass in the 3rd installment. Even a shiny new long nosed semi in his G1 colors but sporting a trailer rolling out of a cloud of dust or smoke with no warning whatsoever would have everyone in the theater on their feet cheering. I would not be surprised at all to see the 2nd movie end on a very dark note but also as a very obvious "to be continued" like was done between the 2nd and 3rd Matrix films.
I mean, seriously, Bay isn't going to flirt with career suicide by killing off Prime and actually leaving him dead! Spielberg wouldn't allow it for starters and the writing team values breathing too much to risk pissing off the fans. If Bay suggested full on death of Prime the writers would bolt like scared rabbits.

i really don't want prime to die :sad: prime is my favorite character ever. but if his death why would they need to protect his body. :???:

Prime is probably in stasis lock.

Plus, the ROTF: Alliance comic shows that the Allspark fragment can reactivate any offline Transformer.

The Hero dies.
It's a rule.
The ultimate lesson can only be learned when the ultimate failure is experienced.

He will be back.
That is also a rule.
The Hero is reborn pure and victorious from the ultimate lesson.

Yeah, seeing as how he was an extra, I doubt he really understood what was going on. He either misunderstood the situation, or Bay probably wanted them to act like they were protecting Optimus' body as if he were dead. I mean, why the hell would you protect a body if it's already dead?

Also, lol good luck ever being an extra in the business again. I'm sure when/if Bay sees this (if it's true), he'll make sure this guy doesn't work again. He left plenty of obvious hints to his identity, especially if the candid conversation he had with Bay and the cameras is true.
