Tags: Art, Dragon Ball, Information,

It seems Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will be the official title for the up-coming movie in the legendary Dragon Ball Z series! As you can see in the poster below it features Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Goten, Trunks, Piccolo, Bulma, Majin Buu and unknown enemies! What power do they hold? Who knows, but we’ll be seeing our heroes taking it once again to the next level!

Dragon Ball Z 2013: Battle of Gods will be the 18th movie in the Dragon Ball anime series. It will take place between Dragon Ball manga chapters 517 and 518, in the 10 year timeskip after Goku defeats Buu, but before the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. Akira Toriyama along with Toei Animation, Fox International Productions Japan, Shueisha, Fuji TV, Bandai, and Namco Bandai Games are all involved. The latest Dragon Ball Z movie is set to release in Japanese theaters March 30, 2013. There is no word on a North American or European release date at this time.

    nor was vegeta wearing saiyan armor at the time, but lets just be happy there’s another movie

  • http://twitter.com/kevingarciaacev kevin garcia acevedo

    he did go ssj in gt and he can but it will be weaker than his ultimate form 

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Old kai told gohan to try to become a super saiyan and when he tried he went into his mystic form. 

  • http://twitter.com/kevingarciaacev kevin garcia acevedo

    i wish gahn and gotenk would be older like the one in gt but not whit that patetic fighting and they fuse to see a grown up gotenks  or maybe future trunks apears and fuse whit gohan gohan+trunks _gohunks

  • Van Basten

    Should be good. But it’s not like seeing gods is anything new for us in this series. 

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    He never lost the ability to go ssj. It’s just inferior to his Mystic Mode

    i hope this is a sick movie and not another 40 min thing we need a long movie and some good fighting shit in it i love dragonball z there is not ep u cant ask me about and i dont know am a real fan i just need a good movie of dbz there is not a 100% best dbz movie to me the are like 80 and down 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AJHFSEUP4KMLDLIGAOUFEOJPUU Rose Abrams

    So the new villain is Anubis??!! Awesome!

  • http://twitter.com/Starfoxleon The Great Leon

    I hope Goten and Trunks are not screen hogs, as little as possible would be nice. Please let Vegeta have a decent fight Wrath of the Dragon embarrassed him.

  • http://twitter.com/Starfoxleon The Great Leon

     I think all the early ones are the best, they are usually pure fighting good story. They started getting silly after Broly 1 with silly scenes and the kids taking up screen time.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/D4D4I3HESXNQFDASYZNYQ36S7A Amy

    dont get me wrong i love all the dbz movies i just need one that i can say yea thats the 100% best one right now all is like 80% to me  i just that one 

  • thecrows2332

    Is Vidal in the left hand bottom corner of the poster?

  • http://twitter.com/Starfoxleon The Great Leon

     I can agree with that. I too want one to be about an hour and 30min. Enough with the 40 they feel like specials. I do love the older ones but I always wanted them to release a movie on the big screen animated. They would have made just as much maybe more than Pokemon if they did it during the same time.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZKAVVI6QI72JGTB5PTHJWWYYKU hector

    why is gohan transformed into a ssj cause this takes place after the buu saga D:

  • Shogunreaper

    I thought he was at his full power already in mystic, so there was no need for him to bother going SS

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Nope at least not in the dub version, Idk about the others

  • http://www.facebook.com/christiaan.neeley Christiaan Neeley

    why not he didnt lose the ability

  • Shogunreaper

    dub is full of edits, if you want real confirmation you’d have to check the manga.

  • http://www.facebook.com/xdarksoulx1129 Charles Darksoul Webster

     he has the ability to still go super sayian idiot… he does in dragonball GT

  • http://www.game-rumble.com/ LamiaGR

    So this is truly, really, a “brand new” movie? Fan service?

  • Sharnerius1

    Isn’t that an egyptian god?I knew Gohan could still go super saiyan.He never stated he couldn’t,it’s just that it would be useless.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Trust me dude, I know, I’m just answering the question as to where he got that “idea” from, which is why I said ” dub version at least”

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZKAVVI6QI72JGTB5PTHJWWYYKU hector

    of course he still has the abilty to turn into a ssj…. but he doesn’t need to because the old supreme kai unlocked his potential which is his strongest form. o btw Akira Toriyama didnt have much to do with dbgt so ya…….

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    FUCKING AWESOME, I CAN’T WAIT LOOKS FUCKING AWESOME DBZ=BEST ANIME EVER CREATED XD

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Me too, I think am going to faint of EPICNESS XD

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I know XD

  • Sigvon SinTei

    But from what I remember, to complete the process of unlocking his true potential, supreme Kai said that Gohan should just do what he normally does when turning into a super Saiyan. When he did, his hair didn’t turn yellow but powered up more than a super Saiyan and slightly changed his physical appearance.

    It’s true that they didn’t mention that Gohan couldn’t go Super Saiyan. But he should have turned when fighting Buu. He was beaten up bad until Goku came to the rescue.

    Maybe he just didn’t know how to go SSJ at that time. A couple of years has passed in the movie timeline so he might picked up a trick to do it. Maybe jumping straight to SSJ2 or Supreme Kai might have told him how to properly do it.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I claim this month of MONTH OF DBZ XD

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Hard to say, I am pretty positive thats Videl, at first I thought she’s Pan then I said its Videl cause this takes place before Pan was even born.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    True XD

  • thecrows2332

    Yeah when i first saw her i thought it was Pan as well. It must be Vidal then.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7RZ36JUKEPVF2VK6KVBBDRBHVI Charles

    After Super Buu absorbs ultimate gohan, he also absorbs the form’s power and skills. For some unknown reason, Gohan looses the ability to use his ultimate form, that is why his power returns to the way it originally was before the kai training. Remember Buu can merge with a kai, taking on it’s form and abilities, even if the kai can be saved, gohan for example, the form and abilities stay with Buu. 

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    brand new movie.

  • http://twitter.com/Dabers Alex Ndabananiye

    Always wanted to see Goku fight a human sized rabbit YES!!!!

  • enkitheanunnaki

    vegeta has always been an idiot, bad fighter, he used to be my idol when i was kid, and i watched it on cartoon network, until i realized toriyama didnt like him, thats why, he sucks as a fighter, i rather prefer gohan with his hidden power.

    Too bad there won’t be a subbed version until the DVD is released almost a year later, and who knows if and when there will be a dubbed version.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    I’ve never heard this theory before. At this point it’s all just speculation, but the point is there’s no need to go SSJ when his full strength (and any percentage of it he wishes to use) is achievable in his normal form.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    GT is NOT canon… just wow…

    Gohan didn’t even turn SSJ at the Hirudigarn movie, implying Akira might be planning something, or it is just an obvious mistake.

  • http://www.facebook.com/venomousdarkwave Keenan Nichols

    Its sad it wont matter who fights because everyone will lose against whoever they are fighting and then goku will kill them all while all of them are fighting him at one time so whats the point of adding the other z warriors ….it be nice if krillin actually gets serious and fights for his family or him and 18 tag against someone….but that wont happen because its always about the sayians…and the random piccolo apperance halfway through the movie

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I know that, seriously why would I not know that >_<

    Dude, if you are not talking this seriously then don’t reply to me, and how’s Pan in this movie this movie takes place before Goten & Trunks becomes Teens and Pan was born will take place between Dragon Ball manga chapters 517 and 518, in the 10 year timeskip after Goku defeats Buu, before the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament.

    dude thats f*#kin ANUBIS

  • sunnath_786

    i think gohans mystic power goes away. it would make sense since that power was given by the old kai and it was only temporary for a balance of power. also it was stated at the end of dbz that goku and vegeta was strongest on earth. however mystic gohan is stronger than both, so it probs goes away in this movie.

    But moviez aren’t canon either, or is dbz special?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    Vegeta is more powerful than Goku, but Goku got formal martial arts training while Saiyan martial arts is just like brawling. Its like putting Superman against a clone of himself that knows martial arts, he’ll always look like a crappy fighter in comparison.

  • supersayingzoro

    what powers do they hold?? come on…they all have the same power ki…i wonder if they will fight  slyfer the sky dragon and obelisk the tormentor…lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/BrooklynRageNeh Scott Ramen Boy Baker

    that logic is invaild it was never stated that it was temporary, and also it was stated that Mystic gohan gains such a boost becouse of his hidden power inside him, if anyone eles had same thing done they would be weaker for it, and GOKU never trully masterd ssj3 like his other forms so by end of dbz 10 years later gohan basicly never trianed goku and vegeta did goku ssj3 control and power was proberly greater after them 10 years

    the recent DBZ movie that came out (not the remake of the Lost Movie).
    the one Vegeta had a brother.
    that movie was alright but fight could have been better.

    but i love the colour, drawing and animation.

    hoping this would be better!

    also the Bardock movie was alright but could be better too

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ODVTWMSKMY4VAZC4ATOUDBTCIQ Red Robbin

    Wow ur stupid. After unlocking his full potential in the Buu saga via elder kai, he could no longer become SSJ. You’re a moron the movie is after the Buu saga.

    I highly doubt , Funimation has been slacking lately with DBZ specials lately…

    When he had his full potential unlocked he tried turning super saiyan but  it didnt happen

  • Twice_The_A

    I honestly think it’s just a simple mistake, I mean, they have vegeta from the android saga in this poster and that version I honestly don’t expect to be in this movie :P

  • *Super~Sayian*

    True enough, however thou most of plot holes is what made DBZ so famous, so I think contradictions is a blessing for dbz ( cell/buu saga )

  • Bo Schaub

    In the official Viz English translation of the manga:
    Gohan: How do I become this ultimate fighter?
    Old Kai: You turn into that super whatever often enough. Fire it up, just like that.
    Gohan: Just like turning Super Saiyan…Okay I can do that.
    Then he powers up = Ultimate Gohan

    “Ultimate” Gohan is all of Gohan’s power, Super Saiyan or otherwise, unlocked into his base from. To me this means he can not transform into a Super Saiyan in the traditional sense. If you look closely you can tell his hair is spikier and his eyes are more stern or angry, like a Super Saiyan but no yellow hair or green eyes. If they find a way to explain it in this movie then ok, but if not it is just as wrong as GT.

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    After the Elder Kai unlocks Gohan’s potential he no longer can go SSJ(or has a reason to) because of his Mystic form which pretty much made Gohan stronger and allowed him to tap into all of his energy without the use of something like transforming. Go back and watch the episode where Gohan first uses his Mystic form. The Elder Kai tells Gohan to power up like he’s going SSJ but instead of going SSJ he just powered up and his hair stood up like he transformed.

  • http://twitter.com/watsg00dn199a RyanBSmith

    No he hates Yamcha the most lol he was beaten by old men, had hes leg broken, blown up by an henchmen, and got beaten up by weaklings 

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Hopefully, from what I heard this movie will be CANON, so I hope they’ll explain it, but don’t be shocked if they don’t cause DBZ, especially after the frieza saga, suffered from a lot of contradictions/plot holes. not just fillers but canon too.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7RZ36JUKEPVF2VK6KVBBDRBHVI Charles

    No alex, go back to the episode about the origin of Buu. When he absorbs the two supreme kais, he also becomes part kai himself. He takes on their appearances and thier abilities, they don’t get them back after that. Gohan was saved but his Kai power was taken away from him do to being absorbed by buu.

    That looks like an Egyptian deity, hence the name.  This movie has the potential to be good, but it could also stink.  I’m being cautiously optimistic.

    Sameer Khan if you had watched all the OAVs of Dbz, you will remember that Akira Toriyama has the habit to not exactly respect the manga, the chronology or the characters levels of power in his movies.. such as in “the return of cooler” and others… and they still remains fucking good to watch. Nothing is shocking me at this stage and the purple cat seems to be charismatic. Morever he will inevitably be stronger than buu so…. i inevitably like that !!! I’m pretty sure that he is the big boss and the girl we can see in the background isn’t a vilain but just a character such as Tapion, whose story will trigger the fight between Goku and the “egyptian cat”. Sorry if i have made mistakes by writing. I just hope you understood me. I’m not an english speaker, im just a guy who wanted to give his opinion

    Louis… my gosh, are most DBZ fans ignorant. The OVAs and films were NOT canon, and Akira Toriyama had very little if ANY involvement in them. Same goes for GT. Toriyama has stated that, through his involvement, this film WILL be canon. But under normal circumstances, only manga material is canon.

    For the upteenth time, in the manga AND in the anime, elder Kai asks Gohan to go super saiyan but he is UNABLE to and instead unlocks his potential in his normal state.

    alex marrero… Sorry bro but you’re wrong revise your geek and stupid ARENA appelation. I got all the VHS in front of me because you made me doubt and the name akira toryma is on each vhs… An arrogant noob sure of him like you is something really really deplorable….

  • http://twitter.com/Louis_Jez Louis Jezequel

    Pfff ! it’s not because gohan is unable to go to super saiyen that kai decides to unlock gohan potential… Gohan was still able to do it and by broking the z-sword Elder kai appeared. After Elder kai decides to unlock Gohan’s potential only because Goku promised that he could touch the butt of bulma.  I won’t reply anymore, you’re too much stupid. A.R.E.N.A ? lol !!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    WHAT? Louis you make no sense. If you can’t write decent in English then don’t write at all.

    IT IS CLEARLY STATED IN THE ANIME AND MANGA THAT GOHAN ATTEMPTS TO GO SSJ BUT CANNOT. GO BACK AND READ/WATCH THEM. Since you are too lazy to do it, and since SI does not allow links, here’s the quote:

    Gohan: “How do I change into that ultimate warrior?”

    Kai: “You change into that super thing-a-majigie. Gather your energy like you do that.”

    Gohan: “Like a super saiyan, eh? Okay.” *charges energy* 

    Goku: “Just looking at you, there’s no transformation, and you haven’t even changed into super saiyan.”

    You are the stupid one, for arguing an issue that is clearly in my favor based on FACTS presented in both print and television and for attempting to communicate in a language you so clearly need more practice with.

     i hope it comes here in the STATES!!!!!! its been 10 years now and i want to watch something new thats anime/movie! PLEASE COME here! i dont like exlusive stuff like video games or movies from Japan! please have it here too! as a limited screening for a month!!!!!! than i will be happy!!!!!!!!! :)

  • Jack_Kim

    Actually, Gohan can turn into super saiyan.  Alex, your quote is exactly true.  I’ve read the manga and watched the anime here in the States, and also read/watched them in Japanese.  The quote is true, but the implication is that: 

    Gohan asks Elder Kai how to transform into the unlocked-potential state, and Kai replies by

    telling him it is just like transforming into super saiyan, that Gohan has to gather his energy

    (qi) just as he would to turn into ssj.  So Gohan does, and voila!  His power level increases

    dramatically and his facial expression changes to a more mature image.  Seeing that

    Gohan doesn’t change much outside, Goku expresses awe that there’s no ssj-like

    transformation yet he’s so powerful.  Elder Kai responds by saying ssj transformation (with

    all the lighting and hair color change) is just a gimmick compared to this.  So I think you

    just misunderstood the implications, or maybe the English translations were incorrect.  

    Elder Kai simply instructed Gohan how this is similar to turning into a ssj, not that he HAS 

    TO turn into ssj.Additionally, Gohan can turn into ssj in GT, but I can see how some would argue that it’s non-canon being that Toriyama wasn’t too involved.  But he was certainly involved for the beginning part of Baby saga, and Gohan does transform into ssj during that saga.   Long explanation…  Sorry :)

  • Garry K Edwards

    But will it be in English?

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    Doubt it… IF the limited release in Japan does well THEN Funimation might get involved with a wide scale (international) release too. The latter could be in either subbed OR dubbed format anyway LOL!

    Regardless, it’ll probably take a few months to a year AFTER that release for it to be available in the states… in DVD, Blue Ray etc. m/

    One of the stupidest comments about Dragon Ball so far. Now I know why he joined the Noobs Association.

    Gohan CAN turn into Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2. Why doesn’t he turn into Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2 when he fights Buu? That because Elder Kai already unlocks his secret power to the max and beyond that. So, transforming into Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2 is UNNECESSARY. But he STILL can transform into Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2.

    And Elder Kai says that physically transforming into Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2 is wasting of energy, thus Gohan doesn’t transform into Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2.

    I’ve been reading Dragon Ball manga and watching Dragon Ball anime since 1996.

  • YanuarP

    Gohan: “How do I change into that ultimate warrior?”
    [Gohan askes how to burst his new unlocked secret power to Elder Kai]

    Kai: “You change into that super thing-a-majigie. Gather your energy like you do that.”
    [Elder Kai says that Gohan can change to Super Saiyajin right, so how to burst the unlocked secret power is just like that, gather the energy like you change into Super Saiyajin]

    [Elder Kai explains that how to burst the unlocked secret power is LIKE how to transform into Super Saiyajin thing, just gather the energy, BUT without transforming into Super Saiyajin, keep in normal state -because Elder Kai thinks that physically transforming isn't effective and wasting of energy]

    Gohan: “Like a super saiyan, eh? Okay.” *charges energy*
    [How to burst the unlocked secret power? Just gather the energy LIKE transforming into Super Saiyajin]

    Goku: “Just looking at you, there’s no transformation, and you haven’t even changed into super saiyan.”
    [Goku amazes with Gohan's new unlocked secret power... Goku amazes MORE because Gohan EVEN hasn't changed into Super Saiyajin yet, but the power is already unbelieveable, if Gohan changes into Super Saiyajin, Goku thinks Gohan's power will be far unbelieveable]

    I hope, for the sake of all future DB games, that TREEVAX’s RB3 project is fully utilized by all the developers of any DB game. If you don’t know who TREEVAX is, please go look him up on his Youtube channel, and I also hope you like his Facebook page, too. He needs our support. Right now, TREEVAX has 2,500+ likes on his Facebook page which has a blue print for the best DB game in history. The next goal is 4,000+ likes. (Just a side note: TREEVAX has already shown his very detailed outline to developers at Namco Bandai already, and they were very impressed and liked his ideas. Now TREEVAX just needs backing from a large enough community to influence Namco Bandai more.)
    His outline and ideas can be found on his Facebook page.

    They’re planning to keep it cannon by keeping Gohan ultimate, but I assumed they already a cover so they’re prob not changing the front cover for gohan.But,Gohan will be ultimate for the movie.

  • Nisemonokatara9

    watch team four star’s DBZ the abridged series. They have a Krillin owned counter to count the many times Krillin got his ass handed to him.
