Dragon Ball Super's new movie is teasing an "unexpected" character! Dragon Ball Super: Broly surprised fans with the fact that series creator Akira Toriyama had officially brought Broly into the series' canon following the former non-canon villain's run through some of the most popular Dragon Ball Z movies. Now that Toei Animation has officially announced a new Dragon Ball Super movie is coming our way next year, fans have begun to wonder whether or not this new movie is going to do the same. It could very well happen given that there's already a tease for a big surprise character coming our way.
While concrete details for the new Dragon Ball Super movie's plot are scarce, original series creator Akira Toriyama has been revealed to be directly behind the film's original story, character designs, and even the lines in the script. In a special message to fans coinciding with the official announcement of the new movie, Toriyama teased fans with the fact that the film will be bringing in an "unexpected" character.
In Toriyama's special message to fans, the Dragon Ball creator teased that he shouldn't be talking about the plot yet but teased that there would be an "unexpected" character. This could really be any character, but fans are hoping that it's a previously established foe or ally that will be officially getting a canonical makeover with the new film just as Dragon Ball Super: Broly did for Broly.
Making matters enticing about this promise is that "unexpected character" could mean anything from the villain or hero rosters in the past. It's hard to gauge whether or not this new movie will officially be a part of the series' canon, but if it's directly from Toriyama himself then it's hard to argue against it. If this character is truly "unexpected" then it likely eliminates those foes we have seen in the manga in the years since Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
This could also be a tease for a brand new character as well, and this could make the new movie even more exciting than it is now. But what do you think? Who do you want the "unexpected" character to be? What do you want to see the most in the new Dragon Ball Super movie?
