Also, look over the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero V Jump Special feature of the March 2022 issue which summarizes the main plot of the film.
Why is the Next Dragon Ball Super Film Called ” Super Hero”?
As per Dragon Ball Super manga’s director of the manga Akio Iyoku, this movie will bring more “superhero feelings” than previous entries, and the creator Akira Toriyama is more focused on the superhero aspect of this movie.
The Z-warriors of Dragon Ball are typically not depicted as superheroes in a traditional way, even though they have extraordinary capabilities, which is why the title has fans wondering what kind of film the movie will portray the “superhero feelings”.
There is a Z-Warrior who was in a role of a superhero during the time. After seven years of the Cell Games, Gohan embraced the superhero life by adopting the alter-ego of “Great Saiyaman”.
Piccolo and Pan. Two of the most significant characters in Gohan’s life have already been confirmed to be in the film, which means there’s a high chance the film’s “Super Super Hero” title is referring to Gohan’s return as his Great Saiyaman persona.
In December 2021, the poster for the film with the main characters from the film went out ahead of an event called Jump Festa 2021, which features Gohan wearing his signature purple gi costume.
Dragon Ball’s official Dragon Ball website also posted a blurb about Gohan’s biggest battle in the film.
With their capes flapping, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 are looking at striking some elegant poses!
Additionally, there are new characters that we’ll need to wait to discover more about, regardless of how hard that may be!
The man in his uniform, and occupying the center of the stage is Gohan who seems to be preparing for the battle of his life with Piccolo, Goku, Vegeta, and Pan!
The blurb is clear the fact that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is superhero-themed. We are aware that Gohan has a super-hero alter-ego, known by the name of Great Saiyaman.
However, it seems like Gohan is returning to his roots, as Gohan is wearing a garish purple gi.
