"Dragon Ball Super: Broly" is a notable commercial success, and despite being screened over a month ago for the first time in Japan, the film continues to be talked about in that country. One of the main points of speculation for fans is the future of the antagonist Broly and his probable relationship with Goku, which developed at the end of the film. Obviously, everything that will be written from now on will be considered a spoiler for those who have not seen "Dragon Ball Super: Broly." Therefore, this is a spoiler alert.

Broly's future

Broly, before becoming a Super Saiyan had a particular transformation which was triggered by overwhelming anger. While the villain seems to take on the aspects of the golden-haired warrior, he cannot completely transform and the hair (albeit raised) remains black.

Instead, the eyes turn yellow and the temperament of the warrior becomes extremely furious and uncontrollable.

In the film, one can see Broly fighting with the duo formed by Goku and Vegeta who, inferior from the point of view of power, will have to resort to the famous Metamor dance to join into the famous Gogeta fusion. The character then manages to repel Broly's assaults, but their fight does not end because the legendary Super Saiyan gets teleported to another planet in the middle of the fight.

At the end of the the film, one can see Broly again on the planet where he grew up, in the company of Cheelai and Lemo, the two former Freezer henchmen. Goku appears on the planet, but not to fight.

This time he decides to preach to his opponent, thus leaving some doubt about the type of relationship between the two Saiyans. So can Goku become a mentor for Broly? Probably the answer will come only with the new series of adventures that Goku and his companions will face in the future.

A success in the US
