Of course it's going to throw movie Broly along everything else in Z's movies out the window. If Toriyama reintroduces Ssj4 then you can throw GT out as well.
I mean GT has already been thrown out since DBS changed so many things that stayed the same in GT like Kibitoshin and what not

You've still got fans holding onto what little hope that's left of Super writing its way into GT but if Toriyama brings over Ssj4 to Super that'll kill those hopes and GT as for many Ssj4 is the only saving grace it has so without it... :wave:

Lol, I wouldn't be surprised if someone is crazy enough to actually do this :lol:

But seriously mate, as you said, this movie is gonna break records, Broly gets fans talking and that's always a good thing it'll keep the buzz going, add that with a large demographic interested in the content and you got yourself a mega hit

Kale is introduced as a Broly look alike only for the real one to show up months later ? yeah, they knew what they were doing form the start as Kale got people talking about him again. Vegeta also brought up the LSSJ when he saw her which I thought may have been just a throwaway line at Broly fans but I guess not.

Come on Toriyama, bring over Cooler, Ssj4 and Gogeta.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind it will be popular and it will break records.

Whether or not it will be good is an entirely different question.

I'm kind of surprised they haven't brought in Cooler yet to be honest. He seems to be the second most popular movie villain right behind Broly, and we know so little about Frieza that him having a brother that's been hanging out somewhere at the ass-end of space all this time is hardly that bizarre a concept.

I for one did NOT see this one coming lol. Egg on my face I guess, I hate Broly so hopefully he has anything resembling a personality, character and motivation this time around tho...

If the latest news is true, I say it's just a matter of time when Toei/Toriyama bring SSJ4 design over the official/main/canon timeline.

Toriyama Akira: Oh yes, the movies. I'm sorry, I vaguely remember them. You said he was quite popular?
Toei sings: HE IS ONE OF THE MOST WELL LIKED CHARACTERS IN DRAGON BALL TORIYAMA-SAAAAN~
Toriyama Akira: He is?
Toei: Yup. That's why Kale was such a surprise to people.

Toei: Yes, Broli died in the second movie.
Toriyama Akira: How many movies were made with him.
Toei: Three. The last one was about a clone of him.
Toriyama Akira: With Freeza returning ... do you think Broli would be a surprise?
Toei: $_$
Toyble breaks through the door: WHAT?! TORIYAMA-sensei! Are you really going to ... I'm such a fan of Broli, too!
Toriyama Akira: Would you like to draw more of him in later manga chapters?

Toriyama Akira: Ya'll a bunch of Nerds.
Toei: Are you really sure you want to throw Broli into the ring, Toriyama-san?
Toriyama Akira: Why? What's the problem?

Well yeah of course but if we get another Toei Broly it will still be trash. The only hope is a new and improved Toryama Broly

The best thing is when Fukkatsu no F was announced without a name I said the movie will be

You were right...4 years later. Better late than never.

The difference is that Bardock was a good character. Broly on the other hand...let's just say there's no way but up to go.

Good character or not, is not like Toriyama can magically improve his character just because he's the author of the series.
