So this Poster surfaced on the internet a while ago, and there was this little bit of doubt if someone was pulling off a master Prank, but a few moments ago. We finally got the confirmation that officially confirmed the most magnificent news of the year. The most talked about, the most electrifying, the most brutal, The Legendary Super Saiyan Broly is coming back with another movie.

Who is that guy on the top of the poster supposed to be though?
I suppose that’s Broly in his base form or another mysterious Saiyan character. Who knows! Maybe we will get someone else along with Broly, Yamoshi was in the talks before this, but what’s being suggested here is that Broly is The Saiyan, and if we are to go by that the one we saw fighting in the trailer is Broly! At least that’s what I’m getting at this moment. We do see the green aura, and in my earlier breakdown videos, I did mention once or twice if it could be Broly, although I seriously didn’t expect it to be the case.
Of course, there are tons and tons of unanswered questions about this entire scenario! However, if you are wondering how the character is going to be, we have comments from Akira Toriyama himself!
This is what he had to say-
Everyone, are you familiar with Broly?
“ He’s an incredibly strong Saiyan who only appeared in the old anime movies, and I apparently at least drew the designs for him, but I had practically no involvement with the anime at the time, so I had totally forgotten about the story content.
So, about Broly. I hear these days, he’s still very popular not only in Japan, but also overseas. Based on that, my editor suggested we have Broly appear in the next movie.
I went ahead and watched the movies from back then, and I felt this could be quite interesting once I rearrange some things. I got right to work trying my hand at a story that incorporates him into the Dragon Ball Super series.
While keeping in mind Broly’s classic image so as not to disappoint his fans, I updated him and added a new side to his character, and I think this has resulted in a more fascinating Broly.
Naturally, you’ll get to see fierce combat, but also the paths of destiny that lead to an encounter between Goku, Vegeta and Broly. It also involves the Frieza Force and the history of the Saiyans, which end up having a major connection to everything. The story content turns out to be very large-scale and dramatic.
Here comes the almighty Saiyan, Broly! I’m also including lots of other content all of you fans will enjoy, so look forward to it, and be patient a while longer for it all to come together!! “
Guys, the first thing about this latest comment from Toriyama is it sounds like another strong hint that Dragon Ball Super anime will start again, the way he talks about incorporating Broly to DBS. Also, this seems to be the start of a large-scale story that won’t be told entirely in this movie, so it’s almost certain that there will be a continuation of it whether in the form of series or further movies. Hearing things like this, for us, the hardcore fans who once went through the horrible nightmare of not having any Dragon Ball anime content for more than an era is of a great relief. It’s really good to know that they are coming up with long new stories.
In the anime when Kale went Berserk no one said anything about Broly. It means in the Canon, none of the Broly movies ever happened.
Well, I’ve always said the first Broly movie was the most entertaining movie to me, so it’ll bother me a little bit. However, as entertaining as it was there’s no doubt that story wise it can be way better. The Character Broly is fun to watch, yet he holds the potential to have so much more depth. The story can be so much better than The Legendary Super Saiyan’s only life goal is wanting to kill Kakarot just because he cried as a kid, right?!
I think a major difference is going to be, Broly will have more control over himself, and despite being The Monster he will be the one making his decisions. Maybe there will be an aspect where he has to fight with himself kind of like The Hulk. In the trailer, he seems to have more control as he gets ready for a proper fight, not just mindless attacks.
And we’ve known for a while that Frieza will play a major role in the movie. However, I do not think he will end up being the main antagonist. We will hear a lot of back stories and more details about Frieza’s past and his family, but I don’t believe he’s going to be the villain once again after the last movie. He won’t be effective even if he were to do that anyway.
Maybe Frieza and his army will invade the planet Broly is on, and get totally destroyed while Frieza barely manages to escape or maybe the other way around. Now if Broly here is more sensible he might have a beef to pick with Frieza over something more illogical like killing Goku, while he might still have a negative attitude towards Goku. This is where it might get complex, Goku might not entirely stand against Frieza after what happened in The Tournament of Power, Frieza did keep his promise, did play his part, and we all know how Goku responds to things like that. On the other hand, there will be Vegeta who doesn’t still exactly think like Goku. So this might be an interesting dynamic; there’s a version of the Saiyan history the way Broly sees it, the way Vegeta sees it, and the way Goku wants to deal with it. There might be a lot of conflicts with the decision making and picking sides, even between Goku and Vegeta.
Surely, Frieza is ought to play the most vital role, he will either survive and be part of DB for a long time or get permanently erased this time. Because he was not brought back to life for no good reason, that was done keeping important future plots in mind. I have a feeling they might want to do a whitewash to Frieza’s character, where he ends up looking more like a Good Guy or an Anti-Hero after his role in this movie. There might be another villain behind all this, maybe someone who got control over Broly, and that can even be from the race of Frieza. It could once again end up in a way, that Frieza, Goku, Vegeta, Broly all join hands together to overcome a common enemy. I have a strong feeling that while they will fight Broly in the first half or even most of the movie he will turn out to be a good guy and join them against an ultimate opponent. But then again the movie is named Broly, we can never be sure, but with Master Akira Toriyama’s touch, the Character Broly will become much more meaningful and perhaps more respected in the community!
