Earlier this month, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero hit theaters in Japan, and fans there get to watch the epic conflict between the Z-Fighters and the newly-revived Red Ribbon Army as well as the criminal organization's new androids Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. As expected, it didn't take long for major spoilers to leak online, and if you've seen them, you probably already know the anime movie's biggest surprises that were never shown in trailers and promos, but a new trailer has been released to give fans the first official footage of the movie's main villain.

Warning: Major spoilers from Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero ahead.

While much of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero features Son Gohan and Piccolo fighting the two new androids created by Dr. Hedo, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, previous trailers hinted a powerful mysterious villain being housed inside the headquarters of the Red Ribbon Army.

Since Goku and Vegeta are training with Broly in the planet of Beerus and Whis, it will be up to Gohan, Piccolo, and other Z-Fighters to stop the Red Ribbon Army's evil plans, and the main villain turns out to be Cell Max, a superpowered giant version of the iconic Dragon Ball Z villain, Cell.

You can watch the trailer officially debuting Cell Max in the tweet below:

As you can see, the trailer shows Cell Max unleashing his incredible power against Gohan and Piccolo, and the two Z-Fighters have also unleashed new transformations: Piccolo with his new green form thanks to a wish being granted by the dragon of the Dragon Balls; and Gohan with his most powerful form yet, "Final Gohan", which turns his hair white.
