Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opening weekend

While waiting for the global release, why not check out some seasonal anime. “The Rising Of The Shield Hero” is a popular isekai anime currently airing its highly anticipated season two. If you’re interested, check out our guide on “The Rising Of The Shield Hero” Season 2 Episode 11 right here.
How is ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’?
The film takes place after the events of Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Goku and Vegeta continue to train on Beerus’ planet, and now Broly too has joined them. But back on earth. The Red Ribbon Army, which Goku defeated back when he was a kid is back. Moreover, they have the powerful pair of superhero androids Gamma-1 and Gamma-2 on their side.
But with Goku and Vegeta on a different planet, who will protect the earth? The answer to that is Gohan and Piccolo. In this film, this pair of master and disciple will be the stars of the show instead of Goku and Vegeta. Another thing very different about this film is the animation. Toei has opted to make the film in a unique CGI format, which, although different, looks stunning at times.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Global release date
Since the film is already out in Japan, fans outside Japan desperately await the global theatrical release. And we’re glad to report that the wait will not be long as the film will be coming to global theatres later this summer 2022. You can check it out in detail right here.
