When Dragon Ball Super's new version of Broly was confirmed to be one of the fighters joining the ever-expanding Dragon Ball FighterZ roster as part of the latest DLC release, one of the main questions fans had is whether or not Broly's former English dub voice actor, Vic Mignogna, would be replaced following his very public exit from Funimation. Things have been kept under wraps ever since Broly was shown off, but a new demonstration of the English dub of Broly in Dragon Ball FighterZ revealed the new actor behind the role -- Johnny Yong Bosch.
The clip of Bosch in action as Broly is short, and Bosch's actual casting has yet to be officially confirmed by Funimation as of this writing, but it's been enough for fans to celebrate Bosch entering the role. He's got some pretty recognizeable screams, and they are on full display in the clip.
Read on to see what fans are saying about Broly's new English dub voice, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

As a certified lover of Mr. Bosch I approve of him being the new Broly.— KZ 🗝 (@KZXcellent) December 2, 2019
I really hope Broly gets to have a more active role in Dragon Ball going forward. Having Johnny Yong Bosch voice him in the dub is going to be awesome.— 🔥ThatsBrad and his burning firefighter spirit🔥 (@ThatsBrad_TV) December 2, 2019
Johnny Yong Bosch was already unstoppable, but now he voices Broly so he's like for real unstoppable now.— MerryJake - Naoto Shirogane Padoru Ambassador (@JustMightyJake) December 2, 2019
Johnny Yong Bosch is a good choice for Broly. He's one of the few actors in English who can properly handle the character's two extremes, the soft and timid as well as the loud and rage-fueled.— Kevin @ SHANTAE 5 HYPE (@CCharmanderK) December 2, 2019
