moviehole.net is reporting that Darius McCrary, the voice behind Jazz in this past summer's blockbuster Transformers Movie, is in talks to reprise his role as the Autobot for the movie's sequel, tentatively scheduled for release in June 2009.

Read the article by clicking here.

And please keep in mind that director Michael Bay has officially stated that false information would be leaked to purposefully mislead fans (see here), which is why all stories involving the production of the Transformers Movie sequel will be treated as rumours until proven otherwise.

I grudgingly front page this...

At this rate we'll have no new characters in the second movie. Why not bring back Bonecrusher, Brawl, Frenzy and Blackout too? And have them re-do everything they did in the first film. They could call it "Transformers Again"

It reminds me of all the anti-Arcee people who complained that Arcee would just take the spot of another more deserving character. So is bringing back Jazz any better? At least Arcee would replace said "more deserving character" with a new character - why do they have to fill up the on-screen cast with robots who have already been in the first film and died, aren't there enough bots in the TF Universe to choose from without having to bring back the dead ones?

As much as I hate to, I completely agree with you. I dont want to see ANY of the Transformers get revived, ressurrected, ensparkened, whatever you wanna call it.

Besides, new toys are so much better. :grin:

I see the end of Transformers 2 already:


Ratchet:"They killed Jazz again!"
Optimus:"Oh, poor Jazz... You Bastards!"

You folks ever think it might be part of a flashback?

I also hope this is untrue. We would then have a beast wars style story where, no matter how many times you get blown to bits you can get put back together. This would also subtract from the first movie as his death was meaningless (although it mostly was anyways.)

Once again, TheMuffin says something not only insightful, but what makes the most sense. I did not think of that and that is a VERY strong possiblity with the next two movies bringing us a possible glimpse of the war beaten Cybertron.

Someone should tell the filmmakers that... you know... it's just Jazz... It's not like it was Optimus Prime who died... We loved Jazz and everything, but I think we can live without him.

I liked him and everything, his movie design is great and the vehicle mode is perfect, but if we're only getting maybe three movies, can we concentrate on new characters? Jazz had his time in the sun, he was a classic enough character to deserve to make it to the big screen. He did. We got our "Movie Jazz". He died. It was sad. But let's move on, shall we...

*looks at his somewhat badly timed sig*

And let the spoilage and rumourmongering begin...


Personally, only if this is a flashback would I like to see this. Otherwise, leave the dead as dead.

But as this could be false info, I aint really paying it much attention.

But breaking news banner for this? Really? Or is it a bad joke since Jazz was breaking throughout the first movie?

First real news we've had for Transformers 2. Hence the banner.

well if bumble bee can change his form mid movie, i don't see why they cant have the technology to rebuild someone.

part of the problem is that maybe jazz is such a popular character and there was so much disappointment in how he was handled that they want to make it better. however i do agree that its going to be bad enough if they bring back one character they can bring back them all and they can never die. with such an expansive universe of characters you would think that maybe they could try some new characters. if star wars is any indication of things to come, i suspect prime will die by the end of the second movie. but really once a character is killed off, let them stay dead unless its needed to progress the story/alternate time line.

It is logical. They could use the last part of the Allspark to give him back.
Plus, they only killed Jazz because he was the third most likeable character, after Bumblebee and Optimus, so they might actually bring him back.
And just because they ressurect a single Autobot doesn't mean there's no room for new characters. Honestly, there isn't exactly a population cap, is there?
