No. His story is clearly finished. If they wanted to continue using him he would have stayed in the present rather than go to an alternate timeline.

I wouldn't be so sure. I think he might return in one last arc from now where his timeline gets restored. Would be cool if this time it's the present that needs help.

I made a bet with Alee9977 that Vegeta won't be beaten quickly by an opponent. If I lose, I switch my avatar to Vegeta getting beat by hit. If I win, he switches it to Vegeta holding Black by his hair. This will last a month.

I don't see that happening anytime soon, and certainly not for this arc. If they wanted him in the present for the next arc then they would have had him stay in the present.

Would have been pretty cool if they needed the Super Dragonballs as a prize from the tournament to restore the world of the future timeline. Then I could have seen it.

He won't be in this arc but I think we'll see him again before Super's over.

The character's too popular to just leave behind. his story was already finished in Z yet they brought him back so there's no reason they can't do it again.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Nah, I doubt it. Considering the strict rules of time travel, the end of the Zamasu arc may be the last time we ever see Future Trunks again.

Nope. They could've easily kept him and Future Mai around, but chose to go though plot gymnastics to get rid of them. I'm pretty sure that was it for both, unfortunately.

I'd love to see him in this arc but it's not going to happen unfortunately. :(
I'm sure we haven't seen the last of him though.

No I hope he never comes back again and with his asspull of unexplained Ikari.

My hope is, as some of you said, he comes back once again, maybe if they restore his world via Super Dragon Balls

Super is a strong fanservice product, and many fans are highly disappointed with how all ended, with Trunks depicted as a loser who couldn't save nothing but Mai and who lives with two other Trunks and Mai

Horrible idea

No, no more Future Trunks, the guy got way too much love and BS, leave him where he's ought to be, in games.

2 Trunks and 2 Mai in 1 timeline... well, for me is far from "finished".
But I don't think in any case, the characters can appear in this arc.
Dragon Ball, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and DuckTales: no matter how old I get, these three things will always be my greatest passions.

I think his appearance in this arc is nearly impossible, in the first stages

Chances are higher in the middle and / or ending IF Super Dragon Balls Wishes are involved though

Thinking to 2 Trunks and 2 Mai living together is horrifying for me too
Trunks jumping in and helping our fighters against New arc enemies ( those 8 evil GoD ? See reddit theory for reference ) would be awesome

Poor guy deserves another chance to shine after that massive Zamasu Black arc fail
Currently is the most useless and failing character imo, aside for saving Goku's Life with that hearth medicine

He won't appear this arc but I think we will see him again in the future. We didn't really get a proper closure to his character arc and it would be great to see what happened after he went back to the future.

He doesn't need to appear if it isn't to become a Time Patroller.

Other Trunks already present in the series needs growing up and character developement desperately so no, leave Future Trunks behind already
