Possible Characters Not Returning In Transformers 4?

transformers-4-age-of-extinction-poster-north-america_1378254863 Please be advised the following are potential spoilers.

A piece of info has been dropped stating some Transformer characters may not be making a return to the big screen for the fourth live action film. “Nelson” of the Shoot For The Edit – Michael Bay forums has been known to drop hints before and seems to have stated Sideswipe and Dino won’t be returning for Age of Extinction.

This is consistent of course with their cars not being seen on the set as well as the promises of a new robot cast for Transformers 4 as we’ve previously been told.

Are you okay with this possibility? You can see the original thread with Nelson’s reply here. Discuss after the jump.

    Our fellow member Moy asked Nelson on SFTE,

    Quote:
    Michael or Nelson, will you no longer give roles to either Sideswipe or Dino? Dino/Mirage had great potential and had one of the best Autobot design.
    Nelson responded,

    Quote:
    Correct.

    Sounded more like "yeah, Dono did have a great design"

    But if they aren't, that sucks, mainly for Sideswipe, he's an awesome character, 100x better than dumblebee.

    Not surprised on Dino, what with Ferrari.

    Some people haven't developed the fine art of inference

    Sideswipe, I'm not so bothered about, cos we've got another corvette, but I did like Dino/Mirage, and loved his alt mode, probably more than the Pagani, it would team with the Lambo really nicely too.... but what with the whole naming and toy problems I can see why he wouldn;t be brought back, plus with a whole new human cast and new Optimus and Bee designs it makes sense having a all-new set of Autobots.

    I expected his, someone might as well ask if Ratchet is coming back. The answer will probably be "no".

    No Dino but he was such a key character who did so many things needed to the plot....

    But for reals I totally forgot the guy existed.

    It's hard to tell if Nelson was saying correct that they won't be back or correct that Dino had one of the best designs. Besides, not talking trash but even if they were coming back, Nelson would not outright tell us anyway. So we can't say for sure what's what yet.
    And yeah that means even if Bay says himself that they won't be back, we can't go by his word either lol. Lets not forget that Bay said Megs would not be back and both Bay and Nelson said the Mercedies was not a TF and we end up with Soundwave.
