So do you think DBS Broly will have a different VA in FighterZ now? Looking forward to it, as I didn't like Magnagna's take on him. It felt lazy and unispired, especially recently.
If Funi didn't already have his lines recorded, I can see them doing two things:
- Using a sound-a-like for the job like it's 1999 again
- Using audio clips recorded for the movie itself.
I think the second one might actually be more plausible considering that lip flaps are not heeded AT ALL in FighterZ (and I kinda wish they did it more often!).
Most likely they'll get a new casting (spoilers for the end of the new Broly movie
: I don't think this is the last we'll ever see of Broly. Whether or not he appears in a video game first, Funi will need a new Broly casting from now on), and chances are that new casting will essentially be a soundalike. And honestly, I think that would be the case even if all this had happened before the new movie. Funi are usually deathly afraid of changing these things, so this was always the most likely scenario for a Broly recasting.
Aside from Freeza, you'll notice looking at Funi's recastings, they always are essentially soundalikes, or at least very similar to the previous voice(s). Brice Armstrong's Captain Ginyu was basically a much closer soundalike to Richard Newman's than Dale Kelly's was, and the guy who replaced him was essentially a soundalike to him, Monica Rial and Colleen Clinkenbeard sound very similar to the previous takes on Bulma and Gohan, the new Ginyu Force castings all sound like basically the same kind of voices they've had since the original Ocean castings, etc. etc.
So, the new Broly will almost certainly sound like Mignogna. May not be a perfect soundalike, but they'll at least want to take the same approach as their 1999 full cast replacement; to quote Chris Sabat, "I was a pretty good mimic, to try and mimic these Canadian cast members; what they didn't want were people tuning in after the break and finding out that the characters sounded dramatically different. They wanted them to sound as close to the Canadian versions as possible."
Naturally, as was the case with the 1999 cast members, there's always the chance the new actor will develop their take and change it over time (in fact, I'd be surprised if an actor played any role for more than a few years and didn't change a little over that time period), but the initial casting will probably sound like the Broly the existing dub-fans will be familiar with.
