I love how people are attempting to explain stuff to me that I already know and don't really care about.

I presented an alternate view. That's it.

Yeah I figured that would be one response, but I didn't care about that either.

Not you, dood.

Oooh, no. I thought you had posted "slightly horny" and I couldn't figure it out. Thorny, ah, gotcha. Makes sense now.

A natural assumption in a thread about Le Fox.

Anyone wants to take the odds on her doing a Vin Diesel and coming back with her [fox] tail between her legs in a couple of films time after completely and utterly failing to make a career in "proper" films.

Is it that hard to focus the story more on the TF's then on Sam the guy who adabons his gf for a new one?

Oh that's a shame, I find that kind of different actor/same role a little jarring in my cinema going experience. I'm probably one of the few who missed Katie Holmes from The Dark Knight. I just like that continuity in films.

Shame about Fox, but her uncanny ability to speak before she thinks has probably just caught up with her. Put it down to youth and almost over eagerness to appear rebellious.

Her chemistry with Leboef was pretty watchable, but she was always second fiddle to Bumblebee and even behind Sam's Dad in RotF.

Nowhere for her character to go In many ways, they should bite the bullet kill her in some stock footage/friendly fire incident leading to emotional turmoil and further human resentment, this time led by Sam or something.

Ah what do I know, just let Miley Cyrus do it.

I was assuming the new woman would be playing a new character, is it confirmed it's recasting? Sort of agreed on Katie Holmes in that I thought the part was a rather thankless one so it didn't really matter who played it so they might as well have kept her.

Well I got the impression it was a recast, rather than a new character, but from the provided link it didn't give anything conclusive, just a brief comparison looks wise between the two.

PLus there's the oft mooted 'Going in a new direction' which to me suggests a move away from the love angle for Sam and onto something, hopefully, darker. Although in the land of Bay, this may just translate to a slow pan to another slow motion beauty as opposed to maybe killing the character off and intorducing some genuine loss.

I really hope Bumblebee comes a cropper at some point, that's the real love story in TF Movieverse for me, have him lost, blown up or reduced to a Rogue Trooper esque talking hat.

Oh and have Barricade running over stock footage of Megan Fox, before exploding inexplicably. How's that for tying up loose ends?

I was thinking more along the lines of it being a new character altogether as well... having the same character recast would be kind of lame.

Now I'll have to read again as I obviously didn't do it well enough the first time.

How do we know it isn't the other way around?

I like the idea of the stock footage/body double death and an embittered Sam; it just wouldn't gel with the pyrotechnic fun that much would be the problem. I mean, assuming Mikaela's killed (and can anyone see any other halfway plausible way of writing her out that wouldn't just ring of spite?), Sam's not just going to get over her and go out on a panty raid with the twins... The easiest thing to do would be to write out Sam too and forefront NEST, but whether one-eyed fanboys realise it or not, to real people Shia's box office.

From Fox's POV, I doubt she's that fussed. Her career seems to be taking off regardless, and she can probably find a better-paying more central role instead of being tied to a contractual obligation. I find it hard to dislike the girl, TBH - while I don't agree with an awful lot of what she says, it's nice that she speaks her mind.

Or even if they do break up. They've already got a long distance relationship whilst he's in collage so him having an exciting adventure without her isn't impossible.

I liked the way they handled the recasting of Rhodey in Iron Man 2.

"Rhodey! Didn't expect to see you here."
"Yeah, well I'm here. Deal with it. Move on."

Class.

Oh yeah, if you're anal to the point of thinking that's a devastating spoiler for a film that's been out for several weeks, don't read this post.

Well, they casted him a new girlfriend. Seeing how much screentime Megan got compared to most of the bots, *cough,Jolt,cough*, Is it true that I doubt it'll change that much.

ROTF's focus was oriented towards the bots eh???
