Should Frank Welker have voiced Megatron?

Frank Welker, as some know, was not casted as the voice of Megatron in the Transformers movie, because his voiced had aged since the G1 series many years ago, and some said that his voice didn't quite fit the new look of Megatron in the 2007 movie. Hugo Weaving, instead, was casted as Megatron.

Peter Cullen, however, was casted as the voice of Optimus Prime, despite his different appearance. What say you? Should Frank Welker, the man of 1,000 voices and sound effects, have been casted as Megatron's voice? Hugo Weaving isn't even adding his voice for the Transformer's video game that is being released this Summer. Guess who is doing the voice of Megatron? Yup. Frank Welker is.

I, myself, say Welker.

I'm unsure.

Cullens voice is noticeably aged (he sounds...weaker..more weary then he did during the series, understandable however) but the thing about Megatron was he had this shriek sort of tone about him , I'd have to hear Weavings version , compare and then listen to the video games version and see what I make of them.

BTW: Is their a sample of teh video games Megatron voice yet ?

This is the only one I could find, so far. I'm looking for more samples/media.

Pretty good* , anything of Weavings portrayal ?

*Did anyone else find it odd Welker didn't mention about his former stint as Megatron ?

I can't find anything with Weaving's voice. I'm guessing that it's a hush-hush thing until the movie's release.

eh, I voted before I heard Welker's voice, he still sounds great but I'm not sure if he'll be as good as Weaving, Weaving has a very powerful voice, I'm not sure if he'll top Welker though.

It's funny though , the old megatron looks reasonably smooth yet Welker did a scratchy 'sharp' voice , yet on the new 'I'm a walking pine tree' version of Megatron their giving him Agent Smith...

Lol, well in any case I think Hugo has a very thundering like voice, he'd play a better God than morgan Freeman

Nah , Freemen was going for a peaceful God feel, not a 'Old Testament' feel.

I'm actually anxious to hear what Weaving will sound like as Megatron, since there is absolutely no samples whatsoever.

After seeing Welker in the video game I've concluded that he wouldn't be the best option for the new Megatron.

His voice just doesn't seem to fit the new look, it still sounds a lot like old Megatron but the new Megatron just looks so much different, I can picture Hugo doing it now and it seems more fitting.
