Seeing as how TF4 is obviously going to be a reality, along with more films after that, an interesting question comes up... Who will be the villain? In TF3, we witnessed the demise of the Decepticons' most well known members. Who could possibly pose a threat to the Autobots for round 4? Taking the route from the many cartoon versions, it would be obvious to resurrect Megatron into his Galvatron form, or something similar. But does that pose as redundant considering the events of ROTF? By the time these films are over, Megatron would have suffered a whopping 3 deaths!!! Is this wise?
I for one would be all for a resurrection. I would just simply put up with it, cuz frankly, I dont think that Megatron got the glory he deserved. In TF1, we witnessed an awesome, violent, and incredibly villainous side to him. After that, things went down hill. The leader of the Decepticons went all Star Wars on us, revealing himself as an apprentice type figure to the fallen. While an interesting concept, he came off as weak, and got his a$$ beat. In DoTM, we watched a rusting and falling apart Megatron go to the lengths of screaming at the animals of the African Savanah to worship him. Not only that, but got kicked to the curb once again by Sentinal Prime, only to sulk in an alley and randomly have the human Carly come up to him to happily state, "Your just Sentinal's B***ch." Clearly, the poor guy deserves some payback. But, after how Megatron was portrayed in the films, could we be promised with a Bad A$$ Galvatron, or will the resurrection be treated as yet another waste for Megatron's story and power status.
Another interesting thought that I'm all Pro for, would be... Why not create a completely original Villain? In todays current Hollywood, originality has been disgraced. Every film must come from an original version, a book, back story, etc, sticking incredibly close to the source and its characters. What exactly would be the harm of something new to the transormers universe? Nobody would have the right to complain about how that particular character didnt live up to their original childhood memories, bc he would be fresh. The team behind the films have created many original and incredible designs for the random Decepticons throughout the films, so why not let that originality and creativity be set free on a new main antagonist? Everybody could benifit from it, cuz its something new for fans of any tpye, reinventing the next 3 films. Why set up the story in a way that have been done a million times over in multiple transformers cartoon series'?? You have to ask yourself, is this idea worth witnessing? would this be the end of your world?, i dont think so. In my eyes, this is definately a fun and interesting possibility.
So what are your thoughts? Has Megatron already thrown his chances of revenge down the drain? Are the writers trust worthy enough in giving him the role he deserves? Or, Do you see room for the films to gain a new original Decepticon to take his place, throwing aside the similar story arc of resurrection seen so many times before over the years?
