- Here is an interview with Justin Chatwin, who says this about playing Goku:
Um, the character of Goku, an important character to play, uh, been around on kid's cartoons for a while, uh, so I hope I do a good job.
THIS MOVIE IS DOOMED.
Oh no, honesty!
Run for the hills!
i really hope he does a good goku too
still have a bad feeling about this live action dbz movie thou
Remember, this is only in the "DragonBall (DB)" universe. Not dbZ.. The main 'boss fight' is going to be Piccolo vs Goku. Unlike DBZ which Raditz begins, and then Vegeta, Freezer, and Buu.
For me, I think their starting with the DB universe just to see how this movie does. If it flops, we will not be seen a DBZ movie. If it does pretty decent, then we will see a Vegeta VS Goku fight with like a 300 million dollar budget.
I don't watch that.
wonder if we will see super saiyan 4 .
What a surprise, I just found out Goku is a caucasian lol.
I known he was going to play as Goku for a wile now but he still doesn't convince me for best actor as Goku but then again he is a good actor.
Also for those fans of DBZ..I heard also that the villain will be Piccolo so get ready to expect the unexpected lol
A Drangon Ball Z movie? I thought we saw it basically at the end of Matrix 3 (when neo fights smith in the air, with all the crazy water explosions and such, and the slow mo..) ;)
He's calling it a cartoon ... only seen some of the dub most likely.
He needs to gain about 100lbs of muscle to fit the part.
I'm the quintessential Dragonball fan here in North America, but this guy is going to blow it. Son Goku is supposed to be the strongest character in the DB universe but this wispy guy is supposed to play him? I'm sorry, this is doomed to fail. Although with Chow Yun Fat as Mutenroshi, there's hope for some humour at least. Provided, of course, that it doesn't get cut to death by the studio.
this movie takes place during the dragonball timeline, and goku wasnt very muscular like he was in dbz.
The set pictures just look hideous... this movie will definitely bomb.
Not DBZ? It's gonna bomb. People like DBZ way more than the original. DBZ made dragon ball popular. Was it not for DBZ, I wouldn't have watched the original series.
You're absolutely right. If it's Goku vs Piccolo it wouldn't be anywhere near as cool as if it were the Z team vs Cell.
This is about as respectable as making a live-action Simpsons movie. It's just something that should never be done.
I was expecting a buff Japanese guy to play Goku...not some weak caucasians dude (no offense).
