Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Movie Release in 2022! Exciting PV released

Even as the Dragon Ball Super series continues to be a matter of speculation, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero – the movie is set for release in 2022! The Dragon Ball series created by Akira Toriyama began Dragon Ball Super after the conclusion of the Majin Buu Saga. The Manga for Dragon Ball Super began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine V Jump in 2015. The manga is illustrated by Toyotarou.

The Dragon Ball franchise continues to thrive with its line-up of anime series and movie releases. The anime series produced by Toei Animation ended in 2018 after Goku reaches the Ultra Instinct Form but was followed up with the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly which was released in December 2018.

My Anime List has already updated the movie details for its 2022 release.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Movie Trailer

During Jump Festa held from 18th December, Toei Animation unveiled a trailer of 50 seconds duration. Expectedly it revealed juicy details on Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero the upcoming movie in the saga. One can make out the movie to be set after the events of Dragon Ball Super Broly that is coming to Japanese theatres on April 22, 2022. The trailer has left great curiosity about the plot of which very little is known.

The Dragon Ball Super Universe

The Dragon Ball Super Universe currently has an anime that has spanned one season and another movie which is well known Dragon Ball Super: Broly film. Season 1 had a 131 episode run for 3 years and left at the Universal Survival Arc. The manga has naturally moved further and is currently at the Granolah the Saviour Arc.

There have been rumours of a Dragon Ball Super Season 2 that will begin with the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc and will be introducing some interesting new villains. The Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie is going to take a different route altogether according to recent reports.

What Will Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Bring?

Akira Toriyama, the creator of the series is working closely with the production of the upcoming movie which will also be the first Dragon Ball movie since 2018. Toriyama has stated that this is going to be an original story and will not be adapted from story arcs in the manga. He has also hinted towards introducing a new character that will remain a surprise for now.

The movie is claimed to be unlike any other Dragon Ball release before, which raises expectations for the movie even further. In Comic-Con New York 2021, the panel on Dragon Ball Super got many minor details on the release of the movie. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be set after the film Broly but will be before the 24th Budokai Tenkaichi Arc. Piccolo will incidentally play a major role in the film!

The official website for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is putting up regular updates! The movie is confirmed for a 2022 release in Japan but the international release dates for it are yet to be confirmed.

Dragon Ball Super Super Hero Movie Release Date

Almost after 3 years of the release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Toei Animation teased a new Dragon Ball Super movie in the works. The exact date of release has not been announced but it will get a theatrical release in 2022 in Japan. A global release date has not been confirmed!

There are a few rumours though. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero merchandise is hitting the shelves in April 2022. One can look for May 2022 timeline for the movie release in Japan. It would follow a similar pattern the makers did in Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Cast

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has confirmed the return of Masako Nozawa who has voiced Goku since the very beginning of the anime series with Dragon Ball. The rest of the main cast is also expected to make an appearance in the movie:

  • Masako Nozawa/ Sean Schemmel as Goku
  • Masako Nozawa/Kyle Hebert Gohan
  • Mayumi Tanaka/Sonny Strait as Krillin
  • Takeshi Kusao/Alexis Tipton as Trunks
  • Aya Hisakawa/Monica Rial as Bulma
  • Toshio Furukawa/Christopher Sabat Piccolo
  • Masaharu Satô/Mike McFarland Master Roshi

Pan, Karin and Dende will also be appearing in the film with possibly the same voice actors as their previous appearances but they are yet to be confirmed.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Key Visual

A key visual was released today just ahead of Jump Festa 2022. Earlier in October, the trailer of the movie was revealed at New York Comic-Con. The trailer had left many fans dissatisfied because of the typical CGI-heavy art style. The trailer did not feature Gohan giving the message that he did not have an important role to play in the movie.

However, tipsters were of a different opinion. As per them, Gohan would have a larger than lifesize role. Maybe Toei is waiting for the right moment to make the revelation.

The new PV released today has taken care of their feelings. It depicts all the characters in their signature moves. If you analyse the poster, one can make out Gohan in Masenko pose, Vegeta serving the Gallick Gun, Goku and Piccolo performing the Kamehameha and Makankosappo respectively.

More information will be revealed to the Dragon Ball fans on the upcoming event on December 18. Apart from the movie another announcement is awaited. Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama announced

“An all-new movie since Dragon Ball Super: Broly is currently in the making! Just like the previous movie, I’m heavily leading the story and dialogue production for another amazing film. I really shouldn’t talk too much about the plot yet, but be prepared for some extreme and entertaining bouts, which may feature an unexpected character. We’ll be charting through some unexplored territory in terms of the visual aesthetics to give the audience an amazing ride, so I hope everybody will look forward to the new movie!”
