My Hero Academia has released a mysterious teaser for its next big movie project! While fans had been anxiously waiting for news of the upcoming fifth season, there was a surprise announcement that a new movie for the franchise is in the works. But while the confirmation of a new movie project is not exactly the most surprising for as successful of a franchise like this one, the way it was announced certainly had fans scratching their heads as each of My Hero Academia’s official Twitter accounts had played a role in the new movie’s announcement.
Taking fans by surprise, the three Twitter accounts representing My Hero Academia‘s manga, anime, and movie releases in Japan started tweeting out a strange chain of letters that combine to form the sentence “He will meet the ‘Three Musketeers’.” Not only that, but clicking on the links shared new visuals featuring Katsuki Bakugo, Izuku Midoriya, and Shoto Todoroki respectively.
While the links don’t quite pull up the mysterious visuals on a desktop, they do briefly appear on mobile. Each one sees the three young heroes dressed in new black suits, but naturally there is not more information about the new film just yet. Though seeing “Three Musketeers” here is a clean connection to both the One For All and All For One abilities since they seemed to be inspired by Alexandre Dumas’ famous work.
With My Hero Academia: Two Heroes focusing on Izuku Midoriya, and Heroes Rising extending it to both Midoriya and Bakugo, it seems the next film will be including Todoroki into the mix given how much more prominent he has been in the manga. There’s yet to be any news of a release date, or even more concrete details, but we’re sure to get more news soon either ahead of or as part of Jump Festa 2021 next month.
