"Dragon Ball Z" reboot cast

If Hollywood tries to give DB another try, they should go the "Incredible Hulk" route and make it a sequel that doesn't acknowledge the events of the last movie. Besides, most Western DB fans were introduced to the franchise through DBZ anyway. To properly introduce the characters, there should be flashbacks explaining the events of DB subtly.
