Hugo Weaving Back in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
But what is his role? Ah, only true Transformers fans may know this? In Transformers in 2007, Hugo Weaving provided the voice of Megatron. For a while it was thought that Megatron wouldn't return in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, with Michael Bay even going as far as to flat out say that Megatron is not in it. But Weaving revealed to the Australian site AdelaideNow that he is returning and that he has already recorded his voice for the role. "I've already done it," he said. "I had this strange conversation where [Bay] 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? Well, of course he's not going to tell us that, and I wouldn't dare write about it even if he did, but this is the answer he gave. "I think in the last one, doesn't Optimus Prime pick up a little bit of, a little 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." Of course, the All Spark, it heals the robots, it fixed the little Frenzy guy when he got near it in the first movie. That would make sense, wouldn't it? Anyway, we're going to say that reveal for the actual movie, but it's good to hear one of my favorite actors is still back in action!

Megatron was confirmed being in the movie by Robert Orci on the Transformers forum a couple of weeks ago.

everytime i see the part where megatron is talking to the kid (name eludes me at the moment) on the roof, it sounds so matrix-like! give me the all-spark, mr. anderson!

Didn't Optimus Prime crush the remaining piece in his hand? Or wouldn't all that cube's energy just reboot Megatron, perhaps why he might change into a different form (tank).

its probally like the cartoon movie where unicron used his powers to revive megatron/ make him into galvatron

damn 7 beat me to it... everytime megatron is destroyed something always put him back together and you get galvatron PS: the animated transformers movie was awsome
Janny on Mar 5, 2009
Awesome! I kind of figured he'd be in it at some point. I mean come on he's MEGATRON!

You'd think Optimus would have brought another Pontiac Solstice to life with the piece of the all-spark and proclaim him Jazz. Or even bring Warpath, Ciffjumper, Red Alert, Inferno, etc. Sooo many possibilities!!!!

i'm hoping his return is as Galvatron...but then again if it was why wouldn't they just get Leonard Nimoy (the original voice of Galvatron)?

If hugo is returning..he will be voicing megatron..cause megatron and Galvatron are not going to have the same voice. then again...Bay was saying that Megatron is not returning..but Hugo is returning..so maybe he will be voicing Galva
luke on Mar 5, 2009
If there is no Megatron actually "live" and they are going to tell us a story previous the first film? Or some sequence from the past? Some flashback? mmmm?
thejoker on Mar 6, 2009
completely forget about him..untill he is reborn at the end of tf2 setting up tf3 with unicron
luke on Mar 7, 2009
