Surprisingly, the resemblance doesn’t end there, as the voice of Dark Might will be provided by Kenta Miyake, known for his portrayal of All Might in the anime series.

Commenting on the new role, Miyake stated, “This time, I unexpectedly found myself taking on the voices of two characters. Moreover, one is an enemy and the name given is ‘Dark Might’… It’s an incredibly heavy trial for me.
However, by standing on both the hero and enemy sides, I feel like I’ve gained a new perspective, and I’m very excited. I really want you to experience the impact of the mysterious villain ‘Dark Might’ in theaters!

My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: You’re Next is scheduled to hit the Japanese theatres on Aug 2, 2024.
