Illustrated by Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisen is an anime that has taken over the world with its powerful animation by MAPPA as well as the excellent shōnen style story development. The anime features characters that are the favourites of many, and Gojo Satoru and Ryomen Sukuna are just a few examples of it.
Jujutsu Kaisen has gracefully blessed its fans till now by releasing two seasons of the anime as well as an animated movie called Jujutsu Kaisen 0. The releases mentioned above have left fans wanting more and many wonder if the series will ever get a live-action adaptation, and if it does, who should get to play the role of characters like Satoru. We asked ChatGPT, an Artificial Intelligence chatbot capable of cognitive abilities, the same question, and we got the following answer.
Who Would AI Choose To Play Satoru?
While framing the prompt, it was important to not set any parameters, as well as any particular requirements out of which the Chatbot can choose the actors he would like. The following is what we received when we asked AI who it would like to play the role of Gojo Satoru if Jujutsu Kaisen ever got a live-action adaptation.
Keanu Reeves: Known for his action-packed roles in “John Wick” and “The Matrix” series, Keanu has the physicality and acting chops to bring Gojo’s powerful and charismatic character to life.
Chris Hemsworth: Famous for his portrayal of Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hemsworth has shown the ability to play strong and confident characters, making him a possible fit for Gojo.
Jason Momoa: With his commanding presence and experience playing powerful characters like Aquaman and Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones,” Momoa could potentially embody Gojo’s personality.
Tom Hardy: A versatile actor who has showcased his talent in various roles, including Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises” and Eddie Brock/Venom in “Venom,” Hardy could bring a unique interpretation to Gojo.
Idris Elba: A highly respected actor known for his performances in “Luther,” “Pacific Rim,” and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Elba possesses the charisma and talent needed to take on the role of Gojo.

Satoru is a character not only known for being super powerful, maybe even the strongest, but he is also known for his goofy nature and someone who often plays around with his enemy even while battling them.
The points stated above might have been a few of the factors that could have made the chatbot conclude this list of actors.
Is A Live-Action Adaptation A Good Thing For Jujutsu Kaisen ?
Anime and manga being adapted to live-action do not seem to go hand-in-hand.
Production giants like Netflix have given it many attempts in the past, like with Death Note Live-Action film in 2017, but ultimately fail to no one’s surprise due to bad casting, story writing, unbearable CGI and change of plot from the original storyline.
A live-action cast of the Jujutsu Kaisen would be like stepping into a minefield, as this genre already has a negative image built up around it.
However, not all hope is lost yet, this coming August One Piece is finally releasing its live-action adaptation which they have been teasing for a year now. What makes it special is how the series will be overlooked by none other than the creator of the series, Eiichiro Oda.
If JJK is able to pull off something similar if it gets the opportunity to get live-adapted, it might just be successful.
