Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Producer Drops Major Tease for Teenage Gotenks

By Nick Valdez
One of the producers behind Dragon Ball Supers next big movie has dropped a major tease for a teenage Gotenks appearance in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero! Toei Animation will finally be bringing Dragon Ball Super back for its first new anime entry in four long years, and fans will be treated to a whole new kind of look for the franchise. Not only will the film be the franchise’s first new CG animation entry, but it will move the franchise several years into the future. This means the returning favorites are getting some major makeovers for the next movie
Two of the returning favorites for the new movie are Trunks and Goten, and the new movie will be providing some brand new looks for the two. The two of them have been aged up to their teenager years, and as teased on the newest poster for the movie the two of them might be attempting the Fusion Dance once more. As producer behind the film Akio Iyoku had noted further, we might actually get to see a teenage Gotenks if everything works out as it should. 
Speaking during the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Super Stage online panel, producer Akio Iyoku was asked whether or not Goten and Trunks’ attempted Fusion Dance meant we would be seeing a teenage Gotenks and gave quite the elusive response, “When it comes to these two, they’re going to do the Fusion at some point. I’m not sure how that’ll play out in the film, but if they’re both there, they might have done it.” This does raise some major eyebrows as to whether or not fans will get to see the Fusion Dance make its full return
As many fans have pointed out, a closer look at Goten and Trunks in the poster sees them playfully do the Fusion Dance incorrectly. Their fingers don’t line up, and this might play into Iyoku’s quote. Iyoku mentions that he’s “not sure” how it will play out and that they “might” do it, so this could be a major swerve as Goten and Trunks might want get into the battle but do so incorrectly. The two of them are likely no longer training as much anymore, so a Fusion Dance miss just might be on the table.
