A new Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods scan has been released! It focuses on the Super Saiyan God mentioned in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Trailer 3 and a scan from February. The image shown is of the Super Saiyan God’s silhouette.
There has been speculation that Goku is the Super Saiyan God based on an image posted in Toei Animation’s office, shown as part of a Japanese news television show. It looks similar to the False Super Saiyan shown in Dragon Ball Z Movie 4 (Lord Slug). It’s just purely speculation if the image at Toei is of a Super Saiyan God at this point in time, although it does seem to match the silhouette in the scan. Additionally, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods Trailer 3 shows Goku with a blue aura, it’s speculated this is how he charges to get to Super Saiyan God.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods is 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.
