The verb "hear", as well as "see", "watch", "smell", "feel" and etc., is called sense verb (or verb of senese).
After verbs of senses, only the bare infinitive or the -ing form (present participle) of the verb is acceptable:
Format: Subject + Sense verb + Object + (bare) Infinitive / Present participle
You're gonna hear me roar. (spoken English)
= You are going to hear me roar. (formal)
The sentence uses "are going to" (即將) as for the Future tense of "hear".
The verb "roar" is the bare infinitive functioning as object complement (of object "me") after the sense verb "hear".
Similar sentence pattern:
You are going to watch me break the window.
You are going to see me slam the door as I leave.

"roar" is by no means a gerund!
"roar" is a bare infinitive (as complement to the object "me") after the sense verb "hear".

All these sentences express the things that I will be doing because I am (perhaps) angry and ask you to SENSE it..
1. I will be roaring. You are going to "hear" it.
2. I will be breaking the window. You are going to "watch" it.
3. I will be slamming the door. You are going to "see" it.
