When it comes to superheroes, Thor ranks up there as one of Marvel’s most popular leads. The God of Thunder got to revisit fans when his third solo film debuted earlier this month, but fans of My Hero Academia just cannot watch the sequel’s Japanese dub.
After all, should they listen to it, they will only hear All Might speaking back to them.
On Youtube, a clip of Thor: Ragnarok’s Japanese dub began going viral with anime fans all because of Kenta Miyake. The actor is well-known in Japan for his voice work, and Miyake also happens to do the voice of Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s been some time since Thor appeared in the franchise, so fans of My Hero Academia haven't had a chance to hear All Might’s voice come from Thor’s mouth until now.
Naturally, it was a hilarious if not disconcerting realization for fans to have.
The clip, which can be seen above, is a favorite one in Thor: Ragnarok. The footage follows Thor and Loki as the pair have a deceptively serious conversation in an elevator before facing off with some baddies. The two brothers mince words before creating a plan to fool their captors, and the clip ends with Thor knocking the gang out by throwing Loki at them.
While it is weird to hear All Might come from Thor, anime fans noted the mash-up isn’t the only one distracting them. Loki’s dub actor also does the voice for Noriaki Kakyoin from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, so you can just imagine the fan-art that is about to come from this strange anime crossover.
For those who aren't familiar with My Hero Academia, the manga by creator Kohei Horikoshi began publishing back in July 2014. Bones Studios adapted the series into an anime in 2016, and the series has quickly become a phenomenon. My Hero Academia takes place in a world full of people with quirks, which you might recognize as superpowers. Except Izuku Midoriya doesn't have one.
Izuku Midoriya has always wanted to be a hero, but he was born without a quirk. When the world’s leading superhero All-Might chooses Izuku to be his successor, the boy’s world is turned upside-down as he gains a quirk, a new school, and a set of very dangerous enemies.
