Toei Animation caught the fandom off-guard when they revealed the teaser of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero at the Comic-Con event (2021). The manga ended its run a few years ago, but it didn’t mean that the showrunners won’t put out any Dragon Ball content. And it turns out it was true because the Animation Studio has confirmed the new film. But now the question arises when will Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero release?
Good news for fans because the new movie will come out in 2022!
The upcoming film will keep up with the original characters, but it will explore something different than the show. However, we don’t know much about it as the showrunners remain very secretive about the details. Still, whatever credible we could find about the film is summed below, all in one place!
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be the first film after Dragon Ball Super Brolly premiered in 2019. The film has been teased multiple times, but it got the title very recently! As far as the anime series is confirmed, the manga for Dragon Ball is still getting published even though the series ended in 2018. So does that mean that Toei Animation will release more seasons? Well, there are chances, but it is a topic for another day!
The second movie has “Super Hero” in the title. What could it possibly mean? If you have similar questions, you are in the right place because the following article includes all the latest updates about the highly anticipated Dragon Ball film!
So, let’s dive right into it!

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Release Date
Toei Animation has not yet announced the specific release date for the upcoming film. However, at the Comic-con event, it was revealed that the film would premiere somewhere in 2022!
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Cast
We don’t have any leads on the plot of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Naturally, there is no official line-up for the cast members either. But the film will most likely explore the characters of Piccolo, Krillin, and Pan. Because the other characters have had their fair amount of screen-time in the previous film and the entire anime series.
It’s now time for those characters to shine whose stories were not explored enough. Moreover, the showrunners also gave away a major part of the upcoming film. There will be a new character introduced in the upcoming film. Unfortunately, there are no details about them yet.
Is he a villain, ally, or hero? Guess we’ll have to wait until the studio solves the mystery itself. At the panel, there was an animation shown; it featured Piccolo’s house and a waterfall. But they did not explain it further. Maybe, this was one of the many hints that the showrunners would drop for the plot of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
The confirmed characters include; Piccolo, Krillin, a grown-up Pan, and Goku. But we are sure that you’ll get to see other familiar characters too!
The release date and the title were not the only things that the Toei Animation unveiled at the Comic-con event. Instead, they also teased the animation of the brand-new character!
Akira Toriyama himself designed him, which implies that the character (whose name is not revealed yet) will play a major role in the sequel.
As said before, we only know a handful of details about the upcoming movie. And there is no official synopsis or the main storyline for the movie yet. Neither did the studio drop any hints regarding it. But considering that the film is scheduled for a 2022 release, we’ll get to know more about its story by the end of 2021 or early 2022.
And we are sure that this prolonged wait will be worth it!
But as always, there are a lot of theories regarding the upcoming film. According to one of them, the movie will have a big-time jump. It will be set some years after the Brolly movie. The chances of this theory being right are very high because, at the panel, Pan was shown as a grown-up.
And 4 to 5 years (time-jump) can have a major impact on the storyline of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. However, it is better not to get ahead of ourselves and wait for Toei Animation to reveal the details themselves!
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Trailer
Other than the teaser reveal in the Comic-Con panel, there is no trailer for the upcoming movie yet. But it is expected to come out in early or mid-2020!
