We all know that Broly will be the main antagonist of the new Dragon Ball Super movie. He has already been in a couple of Dragon Ball movies, but none of them were written by Toriyama personally, and those movies held little significance when it comes to the Dragon Ball Canon storyline.
This time it’s different. As announced previously, the upcoming Dragon Ball Super movie is going to be set after the Tournament of Power and will be Canon, just like the last two Dragon Ball movies. Broly is also a part of the Canon storyline now, and it’ll be interesting to see where Toriyama takes his character.
On the other hand, we could see Broly being used as a plot device in order to make Goku and Vegeta even stronger. He could very well die if this is the case. We’ve seen Broly dying before, and it could happen again. But would Toriyama write Broly just to kill him off again? I highly doubt it. Look at the last two movies. Beerus and Freeza were both the antagonists. While Freeza did die, he still ended up being brought back, and now he’s one of the main DBS characters.
Beerus has a very important role in the series as well. I think the same will be the case with Broly. Even if Broly is defeated, I would like to believe that he’ll be a part of the Super series from here onwards. Whether he’ll be an ally or an enemy like Freeza remains to be seen, but I think Broly is here to stay.
Here’s the synopsis of Dragon Ball Super: Broly if you’re interested:
“Earth is peaceful again after the Tournament of Power. Realizing that the Universes still hold many more strong people yet to see, Goku spends all his days training to reach even greater heights. Then one day, Goku and Vegeta are faced by a Saiyan called “Broly,” who they’ve never seen before.
The Saiyans we’re supposed to have been almost completely wiped out in the destruction of Planet Vegeta, so what’s this one doing on Earth? This encounter between three Saiyans who have followed completely different destinies turns into a stupendous battle, with even Freeza (back from Hell) getting caught up in the mix!”
