Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is set to arrive in theaters in Japan this April, and while the Shonen film has yet to reveal when the next chapter of the Z Fighters will be doing the same in North America, plenty of merchandise and images are being revealed to get fans worldwide hyped for the battle against the Red Ribbon Army. With Goku and Vegeta sitting on the sidelines this time around, Gohan and Piccolo are taking center stage and new merchandise has given us a closer look at Gohan’s new look as he sets out to battle the new androids.
Gohan has played a major role throughout the sequel series of Dragon Ball Super, first being introduced as a Z Fighter that hadn’t kept up with his training and realized that he’d need to hit his former power level to protect the Earth and his family. Training with Piccolo, Gohan was able to once again grab onto the power he used against Majin Buu, his Mystic or Ultimate Form, and was a decisive part of Universe 7’s victory during the Tournament of Power Arc. Gohan would then play a big role in the Moro Arc, unleashing new tag-team attacks with Piccolo against the energy-absorbing sorcerer, whose introduction has yet to appear in the anime series.
Twitter User DBS Hype shared new merchandise from Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero which not only gives us fresh takes on Son Gohan, but also features several other characters that will be making appearances in the next entry of the Shonen series with the likes of Piccolo, Pan, Bulma, and Broly to name a few:

One of the weirder aspects that fans have noted when it comes to Son Gohan in this upcoming movie is the fact that he is transforming into a Super Saiyan rather than his Ultimate Form which he used during the Tournament of Power. With Gohan previously stating that he was looking to attain power outside of becoming a Super Saiyan, it will be interesting to see if this is touched upon in Super Hero as the son of Goku battles against the new androids of the Red Ribbon Army.
What do you think of Gohan’s new look in the next chapter of Dragon Ball Super’s anime? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Dragon Ball.
