The actual Broly is being introduced into canon in the next Super movie.


Film is said to be exploring a good amount of Sayian history so hopefully his origin/motivation will be better than in the old movies.
I like what I'm seeing here, he appears to be fighting a good amount before going SS & the line about learning as he fights suggest he won't be as mentally one note as he seemed previously. I like his new outfit (do not like Paraguses outfit tho).

I'm making a "bold" prediction that Broly will be defeated by Goku with a kamehameha after taking Vegeta's energy.

Anything would be better than a literal "giant fucking baby" as DBZA's Vegeta put it IIRC

Just a news update, but after Dragon Ball Super: Broly gets its wide release in Japan on December 14, 2018, the film will be released, fully dubbed no less, in theaters across North America on January 16, 2019 after a US premiere on December 13th (same day as the Japanese release, time zones and all) at Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Though, a small side note, Gohan is missing from all promotional materials, so he may not be in the movie at all, or (and this is a long short) they're downplaying the importance he could play in the movie.

Gohan's the strongest in the universe but doesn't do crap.

How much protection do you imagine Vegeta's armor offers him at this point?

Well, he's not a blood thirsty Sayian like daddy and the prince, but if his family's threatened, then maybe he will fight. I mean, the boy doesn't even use that Super Sayian crutch like the other Sayians do, his base power is far above everyone else's. And Vegeta's armor gives him much less protection than the plot ever did.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, huh? It looks pretty good, in my opinion! The name is kind of weird (on purpose). Dragon Ball Super: Hero sounds better. Still, I'm all in for the premise. It seems to be different from your typical Dragon Ball movie. They're saying the story is all about superheroes. They shared the artwork of a new character who looks to be a superhero. He was design by Toriyama and it shows. It's hard to explain, but his look goes hand in hand with Toriyama's modern style (I'm not even sure if it's one character or two). His overall appearance reminds me of Jaco and his manga. I wonder if he's going to show up. I mean, he is basically a galactic superhero.
Speaking of visuals, the movie will be CGI. That's not exciting, per say. However, the teaser they showed us looks awesome. It uses 2D layouts. Goku's 3D model looks great as well (very expressive). I'm optimistic. Let's wait and see it in action. Honestly, it seems like they're trying to convert Toriyama's manga panels into 3D. The colors are reminiscent of the original manga and not the anime. Those details in Piccolo's arms, for example, are now colored yellow (like in the manga).
Like Piccolo and Goku, Pan has also been confirmed as a character in the movie. She looks cute as always! I wonder if her father will show up (Gohan/Saiyaman is literally a superhero).
Anyway, the movie was written by Toriyama himself, right after finishing Broly. That's why I'm excited. Dragon Ball Super Broly was an amazing experience from start to finish. It managed to balance story elements, action and comedy pretty well. Well, I'm hyped. Nozawa also stated that the movie is full of twists and surprises. Let's hope Toei doesn't spoil it all this time around.

The teaser:

They probably can't call it Dragon Ball Super: Hero because that would lead to understandable confusion with Dragon Ball Heroes, which is kind of their big moneymaker for Dragon Ball right now...not to mention there's also the terrible web series Super Dragon Ball Heroes, which itself is pretty close to Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.

Too many similar names tbh.

Yeah, I thought about the same thing. If that's the case, it's a shame (to see a good title being wasted because of DBH/SDBH, that is). The staff seems to be pretty happy with the title, though. Honestly, it feels like the whole idea was to repeat the word "super" twice. Well, who knows?

Anyway, I actually forgot to talk about some other details. First of all, we'll finally see where exactly Piccolo lives. He has a "namekuseijin type" house (which is located in the middle of a waterfall). The environment here looks amazing! Also, there are artworks of him with and without his cape. In other words, he will fight!
The staff also revealed that Pan will be an important character in this movie. There's apparently a timeskip (we might be looking at post "end of Z" stuff here). She's clearly older. I think she may have something to do with the new character (who was also confirmed as "super relevant"). I have some theories. It's possible that Pan will follow him around (as if he were her idol). Or maybe she's the one who brought him to life. I mean, she could have used the Dragon Balls to bring her favorite hero into the real world, or something. This is just speculation on my part.
Oh, Kuririn will also make a comeback (as a police officer, of course).

I kind of like the "Super" repeating twice in the title the more I sit on it- that part feels like Toriyama humor to me anyways.

I have to say I'm pretty excited and optimistic for the future of Dragon Ball, between the kind of neat stuff the Super manga has gone on to do (Moro was fun and so far I think Granolah has been a way better spin on the "I want revenge against the Saiyans!!!" type of storyline than previous entries in the franchise have done before), the new movies etc., the possibility of returning to "End of Z"., how any of this might be revisited if/when the Super TV anime returns etc. The future just seems full of opportunity for this goofy punchmans franchise I've loved since I was a small child.

I'm also excited! Dragon Ball is my second favorite anime. I have a huge emotional attachment to it. It legitimately makes me feel super happy. The fights are great, the characters are iconic and it's just fun. The original manga will always be top-notch content. It's well illustrated, funny and exciting (especially the first 16 volumes). Aside from Boo, every arc is good to great, in my opinion.
Super had a rough start, to say the least. However, during the TOP, it picked up momentum. Broly was an amazing movie, Moro was really fun (despite some setbacks) and Granola has just been interesting. I really like to see that Goku and Vegeta are divergent paths. Honestly, Hakai suits Vegeta better and MUI goes hand in hand with Goku's background as a martial artist. Toyotaro has been doing a good job. Anyway, with Super Hero announced, the future looks bright for Dragon Ball!

I got used to it and I think it's funny too! I like it.

A new trailer is out! It looks good. It's weird to see Dragon Ball entirely in 3D, but I digress. The colors are great (especially on Goku and Pan).
Some other interesting information:
- Whis, Bulma and Dende are confirmed as characters in the movie
- Broly can be seen in the trailer
- Piccolo is a major character in the story and is training Pan
- The new villains are related to the Red Ribbon Army
- The names of the two superheroes are Gamma One and Gamma Two (in my opinion, they are being fooled by the Red Ribbon Army to fight the Z warriors, or something like that)

THE HYPE IS REAL!!!
