Dragonball Evolution is something which is not discussed among the Dragon Ball fans. The live-action debacle first arrived in 2009, and it is all but a consolidated portrayal of what all things give Hollywood a terrible reputation in the anime world. The film was slammed by critics and fans both, but, the makers of Dragon Ball adaptation had hope about the project.
Why do we say so? Because there is a script doing the rounds for Dragonball Evolution 2.
Just before the movie’s release in 2009, actor Justin Chatwin had spoken to MTV about his portrayal of Goku. That’s when the actor said that an actual script was ready for a Dragonball Evolution sequel.
“I know they’ve written a second one and it’s pretty far out there. The second one really goes to some different places that I’ve never seen in any comic book adaptation.”
MTV disclosed that Chatwin and his co-star Emmy Rossum were all kept in the know about the script and keen to try one more time. As far as James Marsters is concerned, the Piccolo actor expressed his willingness to come back.
“Likewise, Marsters is not only ready for a second chapter but would like to see the franchise continue indefinitely,” MTV clarified in its piece related to Dragonball Evolution.”A die-hard fan of the anime, Marsters has every intention of fulfilling the arc of Piccolo in live-action.”
No doubt, fans are aware of the fact that Dragonball Evolution could never truly venture before that first film. The live-action disaster had established a base for the sequel after Goku had lost track of the Dragon Balls collected by him. However, audiences response ensured that Chatwin’s character never tried to locate them again.
