Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Producer Confirms One of Its Last-Minute Changes

Dragon Ball Super has not brought out its new movie quite yet, but the buzz surrounding it is already at a high. If you did not know, the series is thriving right now as fans all over the world are hanging on Goku’s every word. And now, a new interview has peeled back a wild change behind Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero that fans would have never known.

The update comes from Nikkei Entertainment, an entertainment magazine over in Japan. It was there executive producer Akio Iyoku spoke about his work on Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero to date, and the exec did tell fans Akira Toriyama approved a last-minute change regarding Gohan.

According to a summary from Herms98 on Twitter, Iyoku told the magazine that Gohan was going to have his first fight with the android Gamma 1 elsewhere then shown in the trailer. If you have seen the movie’s clip, then you know the Saiyan is seen fighting Gamma 1 in the rain. Iyoku said the pair were going to fight in better weather at the start, but director Tetsuro Kodama asked Toriyama if the Dragon Ball Super fight could be given a drearier forecast.

Obviously, Toriyama agreed to the change, and the little shift has caused a stir within the fandom. After all, Gohan doesn’t have the best history fighting androids in the rain. If you will recall, Future Trunks comes from a timeline where his Gohan was killed while battling Androids 17 and 18 in the rain. Now, the main timeline is about to repeat these conditions, but fans expect Gohan to come out of this fight alive.

For now, fans will have to wait and see how this skirmish turns out. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will debut this year, so fans can pencil in its spring debut. The movie is expected to hit theaters in Japan this April with international releases coming towards the summer.
