Please no...

Also, Dragon Ball Fusions for the 3DS didn't have English voices, looks like the IMDB was vandalized to add this youtuber's name.

I guess Bruce Faulconer would be fine with making new Dragon Ball Z music.

Thanks for that, I've corrected the article.

At the very least it'd be more entertaining than Evolution... But yeah, I would prefer it if Hollywood kept in it's own lane.

When he has source material that he can stick to then his movies turn out great so I would be optimistic if he adapts a series.

It's understandable that if you were to adapt an Anime for live action, you would go after the most well known. However, it would be even better if they were go after something more interesting. Like say... Banana Fish. Already set in America and only needs about two Japanese actors, isn't super hard to adapt and is also easily unmarketable to people who aren't interested in Anime.Or maybe Black Lagoon which also gives you a nice international market. Or here's a curve ball for you, Wolf's Rain. Get the team who did Lion King and see what you can do with that.

Hell. NO.

You saw what he did to DC Comics.

Oh boy, I can't wait for a Goku who refuses to use the Dragon Balls because it would be wrong and personally inconvenience him.

Warner Bros and DC execs are just as much to blame as Zack Snyder.

You joke but Goku has given senzu beans to enemies. Refusing to use the dragon balls out of some misguided sense of honor or as a self-imposed challenge or some other reason, wouldn't be far-fetched.

I'm gonna get a lot of craps for this, but I think Snyder could adapt Evangelion really well, for three reasons

1.obsession with religious symbolism

2. Tries to be as accurate as possible to a fault.

3. Has a method of taking light hearted subjects and making them way to dark or angsty.

I am scared to make this observation. What do you think everyone?

There are so many anime/manga that could be made into an live action hollywood movie. Dragon Ball is not one of them and I definitely wouldn't want Zack the hack to do it

Folks tend to forget that these live-action adaptations aren't for the fans. It's literally the exact opposite. They're targeting people who actively don't watch anime or read manga in hopes of drawing in a new audience. So they can go ahead and make yet another White-washed, CG fest if they want. We as fans are by no means obligated to pay to see it if it doesn't look appealing.

I am extremely irritated easy to adapt(if in the right hands) anime like Black Lagoon and Baccano will be ignored over literally impossible anime like Dragon ball or One Piece. Like, Baccano and BL are already inspired by American film(Martin Scorsese crime films and Quentin Tarantino action). Why can't they pick something easier? Hell, I think Baccano could be a TV series given how little special effects would be needed. It's even a period piece for crying out loud!
