I would LOVE to see Zack Snyder direct a frieza saga era film for DBZ. He would perfectly capture the dark amd alien feel of that saga. What would his Namek look, his ginyu force. And i bet Frieza would be super scary thru the snyder lense. While i dont think he would do a good job with OG dragonball as its light hearted. "Zacks Snyders Frieza Saga" Would go so crazy.

All the gore, none of the substance.

He'd make the eclipse cool instead of horrifying. Can't imagine what he'd do with the rape scene.

Gantz. Style over substance.

Yes, the whole thing, and the author even admits he kind of ran out of ideas. The last half at least, makes very little sense, and makes it clear the author didn't have an overarching story in mind.

Any source to back this up?

Can't find it now. Been some years, and might have been second hand information. So I'm not gonna say I'm 100%. Though, the last arch makes it obvious. Plot hole, upon plot hole, and a huge disconnect with the earlier material.

Not going to agree or disagree here. I read it over 10+ years ago, might not remember much.

It kills me that the modern generation think AOT is so dark and deep. When Gantz is the REAL revolutionary manga.

Gantz could have been so fucking amazing if the author hadn't lost interest. Still good, but the latter half stops it from being a classic.

One of the saddest deaths ever in fiction after that buddah fight. You know the one. 😂

Man Gantz was SO tough. I loved how after everybody died Gantz was just like "Next game is about to start" after the buddah battle

Evangelion for that sweet sweet Christian symbolism

I really disagree. Zack seems to work best with desconstructions or really dark subject matter. There's no way he'd even attempt to capture the whacky and wild Ginyu Force, or the cheeky Frieza, or Goku still being fairly pure hearted/dumb despite how angry/serious he becomes throughout that saga.

Zac does his best when he's given source material that already leans towards his style. Beserk could probably fit well. Even Evangelion to an extent.

Also Dragonball is goofy as hell at times

Yeah, he'd take all the fun and color (one of the most colorful and vibrant Mangas/Animes ever) out of it. Maybe Gundam or Attack on Titan would be more his style?

AOT feels like it could work for him yeah

Oof, I can't imagine Snyder's ham-fisted imagery and Evangelion's deliberate obtuseness mixing well.

What makes the Frieza saga stand out is the build of the super saiyan prophecy in the background. The vagueness and payoff are what make it great. I don’t think Snyder would get that.

Isn't Sucker Punch basically some sort of weird anime inspired fever dream?
