My Hero Academia is teasing Izuku Midoriya's wanted status in the first trailer for its next big movie! My Hero Academia is currently celebrating the fifth anniversary of its anime with not only a new season of the series, but a third feature film as well. This new film was officially revealed in full for the first time during AnimeJapan 2021, and it was here that it was confirmed the new film will feature an original story with supervision from series creator Kohei Horikoshi. This new movie, officially titled My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes' Mission, has also dropped some big teases with its first big trailer.
While the movie's first trailer is full of plenty of ominous teases as to what we can expect, and some looks at cool new makeovers for our main young trio of heroes, one of the biggest surprises to come out of this is the fact that Izuku Midoriya is apparently now wanted for mass murder as we can see from what is most likely an American news report given the look of the overall package. Here's the tease in question:
My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes' Mission features an original story and character designs from series creator Kohei Horikoshi much like the first two films, but it has yet to be revealed when the film is actually taking place in the series' canon. Although it won't be shaking things up in the official canon too much, when in the series it takes place can mean some totally different things for Izuku here.
The actual story for the film is still being kept under wraps for now as well, so there's no way to know whether or not Izuku's mass murder incident is what kicks the entire thing off. So if this movie takes place late into the manga release of the series like Heroes Rising, there's a good chance that Izuku being marked with such a target here is a reflection of just how involved he is in the huge war that recently broke out as he's become quite known among the villains.
But what do you think of Izuku's wanted status in the upcoming World Heroes' Mission movie? What are you hoping to see in My Hero Academia's third movie? When in the series do you want to see it taking place?
