The cat is officially out of the bag as Dragon Ball Super has announced that a new movie is coming our way directly from the mind of creator Akira Toriyama, featuring a new, original story that won't necessarily focus on "power" and we have some ideas for a number of villains that would be perfect for the film. With the last film making the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly officially canon, there are plenty of other Dragon Ball Z villains that would make for perfect additions to this upcoming new entry in the Shonen series.
What villain do you want to see make an appearance in this upcoming Dragon Ball movie? What do you think the new movie will be about? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Dragon Ball.
Turles was the main antagonist of the third Dragon Ball Z movie, Tree of Might, who usually relies on the super-powered fruit to give himself massive powerups. Of course, the biggest part of Turles is the fact that he is the spitting image of Goku. If the series were looking to include another evil Saiyan, Turles would be perfect as there are still plenty of questions regarding his origin and why he looks exactly like the protagonist of the series, as the film he debuted in didn't dive into any of those details.prevnext
With the Moro Arc recently returning to the Planet Namek, the homeworld of Piccolo could certainly use more attention given to it, and introducing the evil Namekian Lord Slug would make for a great entryway for the lore of the alien race to return. Much like Turles, we didn't know much about Slug's origins, with a new film being the perfect way to not only dive into his past but add him to the lore of Dragon Ball and once again having a new villainous Namekian to throw some tough times toward Goku and his friends.prevnext
Besides Broly, Cooler is easily one of the most popular villains that exist outside of the main canon of the series, introduced as the brother of Freeza who had his own unique transformations at hand. Though he first appeared in the fifth Dragon Ball Z film, he also made a return appearance in a robotic form in the eighth Shonen movie. Cooler has recently appeared in the spin-off series of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, joining alongside his brother in a new Golden form, but as we know, the spin-off isn't afraid to introduce various versions of characters.prevnext
Janemba was the villain who was able to introduce the world to Gogeta, though the fusion character's first appearance was outside of the main continuity of the series until the Broly movie was brought to theaters. The all-powerful demon had a number of unique powers at his disposal, teleporting on the regular by transforming into cubes, which made for quite the cool visual. Needless to say, this is definitely a villain that would work well if brought to the main canon of the series.prevnext
Hirudegarn wasn't simply unique for being the last movie villain of the Dragon Ball Z series, but also because he was simply a giant monster, making for a fight that was entirely unique within the Shonen series. This kaiju also gave fans the opportunity to see Goku's "Dragon Punch", which ultimately put the giant monster to sleep, while also giving us the character of Tapion that gave Trunks his sword.prevnext
Bojack and his space pirates were a major threat to Gohan and the remaining Z Fighters immediately following the Cell Saga in the movies, with Goku training in the afterlife following his demise fighting the biological nightmare created by Dr. Gero. Ironically enough, characters that appear similar to Bojack and his clan have recently appeared in Dragon Ball Super's manga in the Heeters as a part of the Granolah The Survivor Arc, so perhaps that could be the best way to leverage these movie antagonists into the main series.prevnext
Perhaps the villain that most Dragon Ball fans are waiting to see return, Cell is one of the biggest villains from Dragon Ball Z that has stayed dead. With Dragon Ball Super seeing Freeza return from the grave and continuing to feature Majin Buu, it definitely seems as if Cell is the big missing factor, especially with the big roles that have been given to both Androids 17 and 18 respectively. Though Cell is set to return in Super Dragon Ball Heroes for the "Space-Time War Arc", name fans are still waiting for the villain to return to the main series.prev
