Dragon Ball Super series is currently dormant but the anime will make a huge comeback when Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is released next year. A teaser has already been released by the Toei Animation studio and they’ll also be hosting a panel at Comic-Con this Thursday. Also, the studio has shared a new poster unveiling the two new characters to get Otakus excited for the event.
NYCC officially opened its doors today, and as you can see in the image below, the artwork was already on display. The massive Dragon Ball Super poster, which hung in the convention center, drew attention to the upcoming film based on the anime series.

Aliens with digits on their clothing make up both of the new characters (1 and 2). #1 appears to be a serious man, whereas #2 appears to be a friendly alien. Although they may be related, it is unclear if they are the film’s antagonists. The poster also shows Piccolo and Goku who are legends of the Dragon Ball Saga. Fans are left puzzled pondering where Vegeta has disappeared to on the poster.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Plot And Story
The plot of the film is likely to be based on the Granolah saga of the manga, as previously released character designs show Pan as a child. Toriyama-sensei had attempted to keep his spoiler-free revelations to a minimum, he did remark on some new characters. Don’t worry we’ll treat you with a teaser right here.
There’s a good chance we’ll learn more about these characters at the NYCC Main Stage panel on Thursday. There will be “heaps” of new information about the film, as Uchida stated in the teaser. We at Shahab will keep you up to date with any information as it becomes available.
NYCC Panel Starting Time
The panel will begin at 12:30 – 1:30 PM EST and be live-streamed on the official Dragon Ball website. New York Comic-Con identifies the special guests as Akio Iyoku and Norihiro Hayashida. If you don’t know who they are, we’ll tell you.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Release Date
The movie is set to premiere in theatres somewhere between 2022, but that release date may be distinct depending on the region.
Official announcements of the film were made on Goku Day, but details about it had already leaked accidentally through Toei’s website. Even though the leak was quickly fixed, all Dragon Ball fans were treated to an early surprise, and rumors have continued to swirl ever since.
