We've heard rumors about this since January, but no one really confirmed it until now. A scooper at Ain't It Cool, managed to crack the website SectorSeven.org and found the information regarding Hugo Weaving being cast as the evil Megatron. When visiting the site, just type "NBETWO". When the page loads click on the scorpion at the bottom and a little window will pop up. Read the email dated March 23 and you'll see the following message:
"OPERATION: HUNGRY DRAGON 2 CONTINUES. AS OF TODAY, AGENT H. WEAVING HAS OFFICIALLY CONVINCED S.S., M.B., R.D., AND A.K. TO ASSIGN HIM TO OVERSEE THE MEGAMAN ISSUE. THE RECORDING WILL COMMENCE IMMEDIATELY.
ALL THE YEARS OF INVESTING INTO AGENT WEAVING'S PUBLIC PERSONA HAVE FINALLY PAID OFF. HE WILL MONITOR THE CAMPAIGN FROM THE INSIDE AND REPORT ON ITS PROGRESS FREE FROM SUSPICION.
BY THIS SUMMER, THE POPULATION WILL THINK N.B.E.S. ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A FIGMENT OF SOMEONE'S OVERACTIVE IMAGINATION.
OUR POWER LIES IN OUR SECRECY."
You know, I guess if you can't get Frank Welker to do the role you might as well get one of the best voices in Hollywood to play Megatron. We all know how good Hugo can be at playing a baddie. Does this line sound familiar to any one: "Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, and we are the cure."
I just hope this movie is fun, and based off what we've seen so far I can only imagine it will be.
