Dragon Ball Super will have a new movie hitting Japanese theaters sometime next year. While a controversial trailer showing the animation style and some story points was recently revealed, many details still remain a mystery. Luckily, this week the return of one of the fan-favorite characters, Gohan, was confirmed.
Certainly, Son Goku’s son is a recurring character in the series. However, in the last arcs his participation was in the background and he only participated in filler fights. However, everything seems to indicate that this situation will radically change in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the new feature film in the franchise.
Gohan to return in new Dragon Ball Super movie
This week, Toei Animation revealed a new official poster that shows the protagonists and antagonists who will have some participation in the film. Of course, Goku and Vegeta could not be absent, but it was striking that Piccolo, Pan and Gohan also make an appearance.
Even more interesting, Toei Animation accompanied the poster with the following description: “Wearing his uniform and placing himself in the center of the image is Gohan, who is shown prepared to fight the battle of his life with Piccolo, Goku, Vegeta and Pan” .
Judging by this text, everything seems to indicate that Gohan will be the protagonist of this film or, at least, will have an important role. We must remember that his last appearance on the big screen was in Dragon Ball Z: The Resurrection of Freeza, where he fought in the company of Krillin, Piccolo, Master Roshi and Tenshinhan to stop the invasion of the evil emperor’s army. However, he did not participate in the final fight.
Luckily, this coming weekend will take place Jump Festa 22, an event that Toei Animation will attend to reveal more information about Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. It is possible that during the convention new details of the story will come to light, as well as an unreleased trailer.
