The early reviews for Dragonball Evolution haven’t been that great, however if it makes a gazillion dollars at the box office 20th Century Fox will most likely move forward with a sequel, whether we want it or not. James Marsters and Justin Chatwin spoke to IGN about more Dragonball movies, and they seem pretty excited about a second movie, which already has a script.
Firstly Marsters told us why he hopes the film is successful enough to get a sequel and how many DB movies he’d like to see: “I hope [the movie does well] because my character only really gets interesting in the second film, I mean he’s interesting now! But his journey is really developed in the script for the second movie.”
He went on: “All I know is I’ve been signed to three movies, but I would like to make five – seven of them. You could just pretty much paint by numbers using the wealth of source material to easily get the seven films. There’s that much there.”
Meanwhile Chatwin is also obviously thinking about Dragonball as a series of movies, with the actor seeing Evolution as an introduction piece to the wider universe.
He said: “There’s a whole generation of kids waiting to be introduced to Dragonball, so this first movie is really important for that. I mean the main plot is the battle between Piccolo and Goku, but this first film still serves to introduce the characters and where they’re from and what they’re deals are and so to cover that ground really takes up most of the first movie.”
He goes on: “I know what they have in store for the second one and it’s really cool! It’s more in the vein of the Dragonball saga… it goes into other places, there’s other characters, other fighters and there’s a lot of action that is just really awesome.
“It actually goes more into Dragon Ball Z land and it’s just really exciting. It goes into the whole legend of Dragonball. I cant really say more than that but it made me think this is a cool franchise to be a part off, because there’s so much we haven’t shown yet.”
I currently have no plans to see Dragonball Evolution when it is released in just over a weeks time, so this sequel talk doesn’t really interest me much. Dragonball fans, would you be interested in a sequel?
