Out of curiousity is it possible to watch the version where Gohan was a super saiyan fighting Bills instead of him doing the ultimate power up? Or has this version been scrapped from existence? It may be really minuscule but I believe that version makes more sense because he got thrashed even quicker than Goku and Vegeta yet at the time he possessed more power than the two of them separately but was not originally using his ultimate form. In the final product his hair was just recolored for his most powerful form.

Pretty sure it was scrapped after the fan backlash.

Gohan stopped training and became a father to be, while the others kept training intensely, so really there's nothing to suggest that he was stronger than Goku or Vegeta at that point.

With that in mind, I see nothing bothersome about that scene.

I read that the ssj fight was only for marketing

The reason he wasn't as strong as Goku and Vegeta is cause he doesn't train 24/7 like them and keep in mind that the movie takes place 5 years after his fight with Buu which is more then enough time for both of them to get stronger then him

What doesn't make sense is Vegeta not having ssj3 after all that time so hopefully he gets it in the next movie or at least says why he doesn't have it

According to the May 2013 issue of the magazine Nikkei Entertainment, 
'DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF GODS' was supposed to be 2 hours long. 
However, since a child can watch a video without losing interest for 90 minutes,
the producers had no choice but to edit it.

In addition, because of the earthquate that occured in East Japan,
they purposely reduced the amount of destruction scenes.

That's disappointing. :(
Children can totally sit for two hours, imo. Look at how long that new Transformers movie is.

Interesting that the earthquake's impact is still affecting movies in Japan.

Could have sworn we had that article translated and up somewhere already.

We certainly have a similar quote from the theatrical program from Hosoda up on the film's "Movie Guide" page regarding the disaster.

This is terrible news to learn. :( I hope a third cut is someday possible. The "attention span" nonsense sounds like nonsense, given how popular the Marvel films are.

This article also confirms what we knew from other interviews about the film's original length.

Geez, given all the pre-film change of plans this movie went through, it's almost amazing it turned out as good as it did.

At least we got most of it back in the t.v version.

Well, we had plenty of statements that the script was originally longer and needed to be cut down, but I don't think we had anything that said they were actually considering a longer runtime and decided against it.

That said, I agree with you. Maybe we'll get a third movie in 2017 and they can release the three films as a trilogy, with Battle of Gods getting special attention as the film that started it all. So they update to its original, intended glory for this special release.

A fan can dream, right?

With the amount of $$$ the 2nd will make and how much the 1st is still making i think a 3rd and 4th are already planned.

Oh, I'm not doubting another movie as long as the ones they make are turning what they consider a worthwhile profit. I mainly meant it as whether it would be in 2017 or not.

Damn it! I almost had a heart attack. I saw the BoG poster in the front page and just because I saw "Dragon Ball Z" in a poster I thought it was for the new movie. I almost died.

Yeah, the only way this website will condone online viewings of the film is through sites such as Crunchyroll and things of that nature. If your looking for a free method, your left to your own devices.
