Guess who's voicing Megatron? Wait, the topic gave that away. Well who cares.

I think he's probably a better choice than the original Megatron. Optimus Prime I could see working for a CGI/live action flick, but Megatron's? Hugo Weaving seems like a pretty good alternative.

Yeah, Frank Welker is a great voice actor, but his Megatron voice is far too campy for the live-action adaption's tone and character redesigns, whereas Peter Cullen's original Optimus still works well, I think.  Part of the problem with Megatron's voice was the '80s obsession with 'robotic'-sounding robots; Welker was attempting to make his voice overly raspy and electronic-sounding to fit that stereotypical robot image.

But anyways, as an Old School Transformers fan, I really hope that this movie is good, but considering that the director is Michael Bay and the screenwriters co-wrote The Island...well, hopefully this movie won't be as bad as that film. *crosses fingers*

If he calls anyone Mr. Anderson at any point in the movie, I will freak out and leave the theatre.  Because, frankly, that line's probably the only thing I'll ever remember from him.

I prefer Welker.

If they were going to go for a more calculating, calmer Megatron voice - they should have gotten the actor who played Megatron in Beast Machines.

While that guy did an insanely awesome job with Megatron in both Beast Wars and Beast Machines...he just doesn't have the fame or popularity to be selected for this movie.

Hugo Weaving has both the fame and the skill...David Kaye, on the other hand, does not.
Of course, it would be appropriate for Kaye to play Megatron in the movie, purely because he's voiced every Megatron character in every Transformer series since Beast Wars.
But, still...

Hugo Weaving + Megatron = lawlzpwnedurmom
