Dragon Ball Super anime is set to return in a few months, but instead of a new season of the anime series, the shonen franchise will be releasing a new feature film titled Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The movie will be hitting Japanese theaters this April, and Toei Animation already confirmed that it's aiming for a summer release window for the North American audience.
As expected, more details and promotional clips for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero have emerged as we get close to its Japanese release date. With the Red Ribbon Army back, it's up to Gohan, Piccolo, and the other Z-Fighters to take them down, but the classic villainous organization is more threatening than ever thanks to Dr. Gero's replacement, the young and genius Dr. Hedo.
Over on Twitter, user DBS Hype shared one of the latest clips released for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, which features Dr. Hedo seemingly being released from prison. According to Toei Animation's official description of the character, Dr. Hedo is a "genius scientist employed by the Red Ribbon Army. Dr. Hedo possesses highly advanced Android technology."
Watch the clip in the tweet here:
The Red Ribbon Army's scientist may be a kid, but don't underestimate his intelligence as he's the one responsible for the creation of Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, the powerful androids that the Z-Fighters will have to defeat in the movie.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is set to release in Japanese theaters on April 22, 2022. Toei Animation also announced that the movie is releasing in North American theaters this summer, and expect other regions to get official release dates soon.
