    This one is apparently since it's taking place after the Tournament of Power. Especially if Broly lives and appears once Super returns

    Canon in Dragon Ball changes all the time, you shouldn't take it too seriously, Toriyama just changes it up whenever he feels like it. He's especially bad with times and dates in his stories, even the original manga contradicts itself a lot on those things.

    Yeah, but there's nothing wrong with wanting Dragon Ball to be better in that regard.

    I'm not sure what you were expecting from a non-canon promotional anime for an arcade game.

    Battle of Gods was set after the Majin Buu Saga, things changed, did it not?

    The anime and manga will cover the movie with its own spin.

    Oh i hope not. Especially since this is being advertised as a Super film unlike BoG and RoF which were Z films.

    Battle of Gods was released well before Super was even a thing, as was Revival of F, which warranted the Z tag-line.

    Revival of F hit the screens in Japan in April 18th, 2015, the anime was announced after it was released, and premiered in July.

    This film is absolutely being marketed as canonical to Super.

    Will there be an accompanying manga that tells its own version of events? Maybe.
    Will they overwrite what the movie puts forward if it is convenient to do so later on? Maybe.

    But the film is absolutely being marketed as a canonical follow-up to the end of Super. And as such, for now, it's absolutely canon, especially as we don't yet have confirmation of a continuing anime afterward. The lack of an ongoing anime right now is why this film is able to be canon, because they don't have to be mindful of current events going on in another production, as every Z film did on the way to being noncanonical.

    The problems with Goten and Trunks not aging. First, it comes off as lazy not making a new character model. Second, they're half-Saiyans, and the only prior half-Saiyan we have to this(Son Gohan) aged normally. Third, in both the anime special and the manga Future Trunks looked his age at the same time period as the Tournament of Power, but his counterpart looks 7

    Since we get to see Vegeta as a baby in the film, I wonder if they will show Vegeta's mother?
