Is anyone else kind of hoping that they just left all of Broly’s lines undubbed?
No chance in hell.
It just seems like hiring a new voice actor would be a lot of work for a version of the game that basically no one’s going to play. FUNimation pissed off a ton of people this year.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Probably because you can't just have one character exclusively in Japanese Why not? It’s a DLC for a video game that’s two years old. Who cares? It’s not like FUNimation is known for their quality control anyway, especially when it comes to video games. It's not Funi's call whether to dub that or n...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Also, the big problem is, with the DBS version of Broly coming to FighterZ on December 5th, how is that going to work considering Vic got sent packing from Funi, lost to Funi, and now have to pay 223,042 grand? I mean, is going to have Bin Shimada, but no Vic Broly? Personally, I kind of hope they’...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

The Dark Knight Rises also portrays the masses turning on the wealthy as mindless, violent mobs, rather than ever portraying a peaceful, if politically forceful, organized leadership ala Dr. King. It's basically a really stupid superhero movie that doesn't want to seriously tackle the themes it dab...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

I think people like the MCU tone so much because those movies can have a serious story line while being upbeat. They didn't have to be like Batman Forever-Batman & Robin of camp or be serious like the Nolan Batman movies. I don't think Dragon Ball needs to copy the tone of the MCU to be fun and upb...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Does it? I think so. Shapiro and his goons are certainly one of those that I had in mind, but I have also seen enough people on Twitter champion these films and one look at their bio tells me everything that I want to know about their ideology. Facebook is even worse. Christopher Nolan is not a rig...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

The Dark Knight Trilogy has quite a strong following among right wing folks and white supremacist groups and it makes complete sense why they love Batman :P Christopher Nolan is not a right winger and his Batman movies aren’t anymore right wing than your average superhero movie. I don’t even unders...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Say what you will about the pre-MCU comic book films, but at least they had a better understanding of tonality, balance etc. Go back and try watching the 2003 Daredevil film with Ben Affleck sometime and get back to me on that. :lol: :lol: :lol: Or hell, virtually ANY scene with Willem Dafoe's Gree...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Bottom line, the MCU's "formula" works for them, but won't work for Dragon Ball, especially if the takeaway of Marvel's success is the superficial stuff like humor. lightheartedness, continuity, and interconnectivity. A lot of things that work for the MCU wouldn’t work for Dragon Ball, yes. For one...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

On the subject of the Nolan Batman films supposedly “inspiring” other superhero movies to be overly dark and gritty, I don’t see it. I’m not saying that superhero movies being overly dark hasn’t been an issue, but blaming the Nolan Batman films for this trend just comes across as ignorant. As far a...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

The funny thing is that when it comes to humor and levity in modern blockbusters, there has been criticism towards both ends. Something like BvS was heavily criticized for being overly bleak and unpleasant, with almost no humor or levity to go around, while something like TLJ was criticized for havi...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

I already provided an example with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings , which is a Marvel movie that’s set to be released in early 2021. Beyond that, there was also Crazy Rich Asians last year and there’s also the upcoming Mulan movie. As I said, the reason for this seems to have more to do ...
