Hugo Weaving recently spoke to AdelaideNow and let slip that he’ll be returning as the voice of Megatron in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
“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.”
Weaving is coy about revealing 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 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,” he laughs.
This revelation led director Michael Bay to post a message of his official site confirming the news. Bay had previous been trying to keep it a secret, even telling Empire Magazine that “He’s not in this movie.’’
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.
