The wait is over, Metal Heroes fans, because Gavan is back in another new movie that is coming to Japanese theaters on October 20th. However, this movie is going to be about Gavan, and not a crossover film like Gokaiger vs Gavan. In fact, the movie might be a sequel to the original Space Sheriff Gavan series.
While Kenji Ohba won't be the main character of this new film, he is instead going to help out his successor who is going to be played by Yuma Ishigaki (the Azumi films, Hana Kimi). Besides the new actor, Gavan's new film is going to be directed by Osamu Kaneda (Let's go Kamen Rider, Superhero Wars) and Yuji Kobayashi (Gekiranger, Ultraman Max) will be taking care of the writing for the movie.
I might get arrested by the higher authorities from space for saying this, but all I know about Gavan is that he was a great character in the movie where he teamed up with the Gokaigers (Along with being the first Metal Hero.). Though I will admit that he is a badass for sporting a Robocop-like armor (As Dale North would say.) and standing on the head of a giant mecha dragon when he uses him in battle -- I guess I am destined to be Dale's friend one day. Before I get apprehended by Gavan himself, check out the two images of the new actor and the new Gavan suit in the section below.
