Dragon Ball Super is just weeks out from its big comeback, and this time, Gohan will head up the whole ordeal. After all, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero promises to follow the Saiyan and Piccolo as they face down the Red Ribbon Army. Over the past few months, rumors have swirled over the identity of the film’s final baddie, and a new promo has the fandom buzzing all about Cell.

The whole thing came to light when Dragon Ball Heroes updated fans on its promotion for Dragon Ball Super. The game will have a tie-in event with the film ahead of its release, so fans can nab special character pulls and stamps for a limited time. So of course, fans were taken by surprise when Perfect Cell showed up on the collab’s list of stamps.

As you can see below, the whole fandom buzzing, and it isn’t hard to put together why. Cell is one of the biggest villains in the Dragon Ball franchise, but he hasn’t been utilized in any major way since Dragon Ball Z. The android has made video game appearances and even flashback cameos, but Cell hasn’t experienced the joys of resurrection like Frieza has. So naturally, fans have long expected Cell to launch a comeback.

The villain’s ties with the Red Ribbon Army gives this new Dragon Ball movie the perfect chance to revisit Cell, and we do know the film is keeping secrets. In recent adverts, the film describes the army’s Dr. Hedo as having a mysterious “super-weapon” which many have speculated is Cell or born from the baddie. And thanks to this game tie-in, fans are more convinced than ever about Cell and his impending comeback.
