Dragon Ball Super just made its major anime comeback when the shonen franchise's latest movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, hit Japanese theaters last Saturday, and major spoilers have leaked online since then. Thankfully, fans in the United States and other regions won't have to wait much longer as Crunchyroll already confirmed that the film is coming to theaters all over the world this summer, and now, one of the English dub voice actors broke his silence about the gig.

That voice actor is Charles Martinet, who's best known for voicing Mario as well as other Nintendo characters. Finally, he will provide a voice for a Dragon Ball character. Martinet will be voicing Magenta, the leader of the newly-revived Red Ribbon Army, the villainous criminal organization first introduced in the Dragon Ball series back in the day.

Over on Twitter, Martinet addressed fans after Crunchyroll revealed its new English dub actors ahead of the movie's release in North America and other regions.

"So many thanks to Dragon Ball Super, to everyone at Crunchyroll, and to the amazing Chris Sabat," the actor tweeted. "I am so touched and grateful for the chance to play with you guys!"
