We are less than a week away from hearing Mario Castañeda again in theaters playing Goku. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero It arrives in Latin America this August 18 and we cannot get excited to see a new adventure of the Z Warriors.
Just a few weeks ago we saw an emotional post by Mario Castañeda referring to his 60th birthday and his surprise (for good) that he is still Goku.
However, the Mexican dubbing actor has other important jobs to highlight. It is true that everyone knows him as Goku. There is no character as identified as Mario in this artistic field.
For example, maybe they didn’t know, but Mario Castañeda is Bruce Banner for Marvel Studios’ Avengers, he is Ross Geller from Friends and the authorized voice to play Bruce Willis.
So let’s review the wide repertoire of Mario Castañeda, apart from being Goku in Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super.

He was nothing away from NOT being Goku
Years ago Mario Castañeda said that he refused to be Goku. The actor had fallen out with the previous dubbing director, Gloria Rocha, and for this reason he did not want to work in the anime. However, she herself insisted on playing the role for which he shines today.
“One day we yelled at each other. She was on a ladder and I was under that ladder and we yelled at each other until we got tired. When she told me, I want you to do Goku, I thought ‘Oh, Gloria, cuteness. In other words, you fight with me and you want me to record your cartoon’ and then I told him no”, Castañeda told Spaghetti Code.
Later, “that afternoon while we ate watching dragon ball my son found out that Goku had been offered to me and that I had said no because he was worthy, he stopped eating, stood up from the table and jumped up and down, knelt on the ground so that he would please accept Goku. So I went to glory to accept the character, ”he expressed.
