According to Twitter outlet @DBSChronicles, Magenta will fight a "certain someone" in the film. It's speculated that "certain someone" could be one of the less powerful Z-Fighters: Pan, Krillin, or Gotenks, but Toei Animation hasn't revealed who that could be.

Dr. Hedo also created a deadly insect-like cyborg agent known as "Hachimaru", which is described to have "terrifying abilities", but Toei Animation hasn't revealed additional details about those abilities. The villain's wasp-like design looks like an effective way for the genius scientist Dr. Hedo to gather material from various powerful warriors in order to create a new generation of powerful androids for the Red Ribbon Army.

The name of the new cyborg agent is a play on the word "hatch", which supports the theory that whatever material Hachimaru gathers for Hedo's egg will transform into the Red Ribbon Army's biggest threat yet.

The latest trailer for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero teased a mysterious villain found in the headquarters of the Red Ribbon Army. Toei Animation also teased that Piccolo will go in an undercover mission inside the villainous organization's headquarters, and it looks like the strongest Namekian in the universe will discover their shocking secret.

It's also revealed that the film's climax will see Hedo reveal a huge cybernetic "egg" that will hatch the "worst existence that has yet to be seen."

There's a theory that the mysterious villain could be Cell, and you can read more details about that speculation here. The Dragon Ball Super card game also revealed Cell's new Awakened form, which suggests that the iconic villain might return in the movie.
