    Too many Americans are going to be present in this film and now instead of there being horrible comic book movies we will be going through a phase of horrible manga adaptations. I most likely will not be watching this,

    there’s a reason why it’s ONLY animated. for god’s sake and all this being Hollywood Americans?! it’s like English voice-overs for Naruto…disappointing- no real emotions are going to be connotated like the anime.

  • Alicia

    Justin played Tom Cruise’s son in War of the Worlds, and has had some other small parts.

    but I just realized that Milo Ventimiglia would make a great Vegeta! they even kinda “look alike” anyone watch the show know what i mean?

  • Jazzyjazz

    I’m a huge DBZ fan and although I’m a bit skeptical I can’t deny that I’m exited. It’s been a long wait since I’ve heard rumors about the movie being made, years ago. Can’t wait to see a trailer.

  • in

    Such a stupid idea. There is nothing good from Hollywood anymore really.

  • Can

    Isnt the cartoon asian with asian characters?
    Why are they using this pretty much all white cast, and a white Canadian guy as the lead??

    I mean really if your gonna do anime, do it right.

    But even beyond that, why do Dragon ball at all with people its such a waste of money and time, doesn’t hollywood have substance anymore?…I’ll answer my own question…NO

    They lost that a while ago when they give people like Paris a movie role.

    Dumba$$ industry!!!

  • fABRIZIO

  • [~Famous~] – The God.

    this movie gets a big womp womp. it’ll probably be worse than daredevil.

  • bloglatino

    jejeje, creía que ustedes no tenían la mala costumbre de los colegas latinos; han cortado las imágenes y han preferido no citar las fuentes originales de las fotos, qué mala leche JJ, ahora que se han desenmascarado avisaré a los colegas latinos para que agarren también vuestras fotos y nunca más los linkeen, no tienen autoridad moral para pedir nada. Después no se quejen

  • ..

    Joon Park is going to play Yamcha not Ando from Heroes.

  • BAkleeta aketch

    The correct spelling of his character is Gokou, Son Gokou. I wanna see him with his hair all pointy, exactly the comic character.

  • http://westwickonline.piczo.com fansCHOKEHOLD

    not sure about the new hair but this guy is a fucking good actor so im pretty stoked for that movie :)

  • http://coreywilson10blackplanet.com Coreywilson10@blackplanet.com

    I put the wrong website on the first one!

  • Kellie

    Is that the guy from Home & Away??

  • http://www.myspace.com/coreywilson10 www.myspace.com/coreywilson10

    No he was in “War of the worlds” and he was in “The Invicible”. His acting was great in “War of the worlds”. That’s why I know he is going to make a great Goku. Plus Facial wize he is the best Goku next to Brandon lee. He just needs to get more muscles!

  • Carol

    Justin is very pretty and a good actor! this will be a awesome movie

  • http://dragonballgroup.blogspot.com thesniperz

    great..
    justin as goku…
    how about his hair?..:D

  • This will flop

    This guy doesn’t do you gotta have somebody who atleast looks the part he I think should be someone of oreintal decent especially if your going to throw people of oriental decent mixed in with this guy, he just doesnt fit, not sold not impressed GET ANOTHER GOKU!!!!

  • vicky

    I really like justin chatwin as Goku but I really think the spikes look stupid. I think they should have just left it flat yeah he would not have the hair but the spikes look dumb and nothing like goku’s hair anyway. Also the clothes look so horrible. Goku mostly wears his signature orange Gi but still he wouldn’t dress in tight emo pants not even Justin dresses that way why do they have him looking like that? I think the decision to leave the Gi out of the movie was a bad one I mean the orange shirt is Im guessing theyre homage to dragon ball / z but It just makes him look silly.

  • gaby

    i luv justin hes hott

  • Victoria

    I have high hopes for this movie. I love justin Chatwin as Goku I mean theyre is no one who looks like him but Justin Chatwin does have that Goku look. He definitely has the silly grin down. I think the rest of the cast is pretty decent with the exception of Jamie Chung (WHY HER FOX!!!?). Yeah He looks pretty lame in this picture but his wardrobe and hair ought to change sometime during the movie right? I also agree with Alicia I hope that if they are planning on sequels with Vegeta that they cast Milo ventimiglia for the part he is probably too tall but who cares he has that permaneantly angry look on his face he would be perfect.

  • http://brandbathfaucet.info/sitemap/ John

    i don’t expect a comic -> movie going to be good, but hopefully this one is gonna be exceptional!

  • JWilly42

    Justin Chatwin’s Facial features do resemble goku but tha dude is definetely gonna need a wig n some roids to pull off playing Goku.

    This movie will either be a surprisingly badass movie like transformers or it will destroy the legacy of dbz

    i hope it turns out great.

  • southAucklandThug..g

    white bitches just don’t suit an asian chracters. even a indian would do better after shaving his chest and his legs. a asian would be best for this role due to their small cocks

  • Sarah Brown

    I totally agree that milo ventimiglia is born to play Vegeta. Looks the part, short and cute, and also he can have that meaness to him. so perfect.

  • Sarah Brown

    and p.s Goku is not asian is a sayin. which is a fictional character so who’s to say what he looks like. the movie was good, could have been better, but seriously, get over yourselves and be happy that more people will be into dragonball. it’s making a comeback and now people will be able to get into the show.
