Beerus (Beer) is not exactly a villain, but whatever. So, this is another canon to the TV series?

Is this movie going to be handled by Key Visual (Known for Clannad, Air, and Kanon)? I noticed something different about a couple of characters: Gohan (I think it's him) is wearing completely different clothes and his air style is slightly different that's similar to 'future' Goten and Goku's uniform has different emblem on his left-side chest.

Remember when Frieza got back during Janemba? It took Gohan 1 punch and he was gone.
So this means we'll get Super Mega Frieza or something?

A "key visual" is an art piece that represents a show or film.

OMG Frieza is coming back!!! I just mass texted the key visual to all of my DBZ buddies lol. We usually get together on Tuesday nights to watch Dragon Box and discuss (recently lots of '15 movie speculation)...this coming Tuesday is going to be awesome.

I think the best part of this is that Toriyama listens to Maximum the Hormone. I've listened to "F" and it's awesome.

I wonder how powerful he will be in this upcoming movie. Since his death by Trunks, every one of his "returns" have been a joke so far against the Z warriors.

Frieza? Bhhmmp... Well, at least he fits the bad-ass villain category. The problem is... how will he fare with the Super Saiyans? It's gonna be dull to just give him a lot of power just because he's resurrected... Power scale's gonna be messed up again.

Won't he be weak against the current saiyans? They power up quite a bit since they defeated him last time

My bet is on Vegeta to kick Frieza's ass.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. He could be defeated by a Super Saiyan, and at the end of the DBZ, practically all of them were at that level, or Super Saiyan 2 or 3, and now they have fusions.

Freeza must be getting some kind of powerup... Or it won't make sense, but I guess the series has never been too much about making perfect sense.

That's pre-Buu Krillin on the poster. So does that mean this is a prequel to Battle of Gods?

Anyway, Frieza was always an... interesting character! Anime hyper Can't wait to see how this turns out.

He's trained in the otherworld and maybe will have a new transformation.

Kind of... lame, honestly. It's a sign that the series is still stuck in nostalgia-mode. The first movie is a big reunion, and now we're reusing villains?

Also, not a fan of hyping up Freeza as oh-so important. I get he's the most popular villain of the longest arc so fans gravitate towards him, but this seems to be flirting with the idea that he's pre-determined to give Goku trouble. Destiny and Dragon Ball do not mix.

"Frieza"?

Isn't he called "Freeza"? It's a pun on Freezer.

ANN needs to change that.
