The anime fandom was turned all around todY when a new trailer dropped online. With just a few weeks left to go until its release, Dragon Ball Super: Broly put out a new trailer confirming its use of Gogeta. And, as you can imagine, fans have had a lot to say about the reveal.
As you can see above, a new trailer for the next Dragon Ball film went live thanks to Bandai Namco, and it did something few fans thought would happen. While reports from early screenings of the film said Gogeta factored into the movie, no footage of the fusion was seen until today. Now, fans have a short clip of the now-canon fighter, and it seems the Internet is happy with how the hero looks.
Still, not all is well with fans. As it turns out, there are lots of netizens bummed out that the spoiler was made public.
As you can see below, the reactions to Gogeta’s big debut have been explosive, and it is easy to understand why when you dig into the hero’s history. The fusion is the second to be born from Goku and Vegeta coming together, but Gogeta has never been canon until now. While Vegito debuted in the Dragon Ball Z anime, Gogeta was reserved for the films exclusively, which put his canon status in question. Now, creator Akira Toriyama has clarified his status, and fans are bound to debate which fusion is the best.
So, how do you feel about this last-minute reveal? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!

Gogeta being confirmed for Broly movie is cool and all (and he does look fantastic!) but wouldn't it be better if that was kept a secret until the movie released?— SomecallmeJohnny (@Somecallmejon) November 29, 2018
Anyways. My statement still stands. The movie gives Gogeta the chance he deserves. He can prove himself the superior fusion (to me) with this movie. I just hadn’t seen enough of him to disrespect my boy Vegito lol. I’m looking forward to it.— Deion | SeeReax (@SeeReax) November 29, 2018

So now Funimation is straight up saying Gogeta is in the movie.
Still a spoiler?— Geekdom101 (@EmperorBigD) November 29, 2018
Guys clearly Gogeta is strongest cuz he has a bang. Having a bang in anime is like next level for power. Just look at Gohan.— Dino (@Rhymestyle) November 29, 2018
