This, apparently, is a big deal. Why? As long as there are giant robots beating the living hell out of each other, I could really care less if Megatron is in it. But just so you know, he is in it.
At least, that’s according to actor Hugo Weaving, who provides the voice for Megatron in the first movie, who says he’s already done voice work for the sequel as well. Weaving tells the Australian paper The Advertiser (via):
“I’ve already done it,” Weaving says, adding Bay had told him to keep the news hush-hush. “He’s over in LA and we were working on the video split sort of thing and I had this strange conversation where he seemed to imply it was all a big secret. So there you go – I’ve given you the secret scoop.”
So how is Megatron resurrected? Weaving is coy about revealling too much, but does give a tiny hint.
“I think in the last one, doesn’t Optimus Prime pick up a little bit of, a shard of the cube, or the thing that’s left, and he takes it with him. Maybe there’s something there… but I don’t know,” he laughs.
Hah! I like how Weaving confirms that Bay tells him it’s a secret and not to tell anyone, but Weaving goes and immediately tells someone when he’s interviewed. Priceless.
So there you go, geeks and boys, Megatron will be in “Transformer 2″. Satisfied? Now bring on the hot babes and fighting robots!
Update Via his official site’s forum, Michael Bay has now confirmed that Megatron is indeed in the movie, but it’s a very short scene. Okay cat is out of the bag. Megatron is back —- but you will only get to see him from the long lost past. We go way back in time as this movie explains the mythology of the Primes. He is not a tank like everyone suggests, but an alien vehicle. But sadly he does not has much screen time.
“Alien vehicle” means more pointy metal stuff sticking out of his head, I believe.
