During a recent interview, YouTuber Tyrone Magnus asked director Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, Justice League) about the possibility of directing anime movies.
“Would you do an anime movie, but more specifically, Dragon Ball Z?” asked Magnus. “I get that question so much to ask you.”
“Yeah, I would consider that if it came around. . . but definitely I would do an anime, like, remake or live-action,” said Snyder. “That would be fun. Because I love animation and I’ve been watching a fair amount . . . I watch a ton of anime with my kid who’s too young to watch it, but we watch it anyway.”
A live-action Hollywood movie of Dragon Ball Z called Dragon Ball Evolution has been made, though it was generally unpopular with the fanbase.
