They're back: More Metal Heroes join Super Hero Wars Z

6:00 PM on 02.25.2013 // Salvador G Rodiles

Could this be setting up towards a true revival of the franchise?

Oh Super Hero Wars Z, how far must you go in accumulating more casualties in your second disaster? Not only are you making Space Sheriffs a victim to your action, but now you have plans to include other heroes from the Metal Hero franchise. 

I bet most you remember that show called Big Bad Beetleborgs, because Super Hero Wars Z is getting two heroes that were made into the same character in Saban's series that borrowed footage from Juko B-Fighter and B-Fighter Kabuto. While both shows are connected in the original version as well, Blue Beet and Kabuto are considered to be two separate characters. 

Exceedraft's Draftredder, Janperson, Jiban, and Jiraiya are also shown in the scans, so there's a chance that there will be more Metal Heroes partaking in the catastrophe to come.

Space Shocker may be in for a huge beating from all of these new heroes, but that's not stopping Super Hero Wars Z from adding more villains to the film. This time around, Strategist Reider from Sharivan will make an appearance; however, we're unsure if his allegiance will be with Space Shocker. 

At this rate, I think that Kamen Rider x Super Sentai x Space Sheriff: Super Hero Wars Z (They need to change Space Sheriff into Metal Hero) is going to break their previous world record of having the most costumed characters present in one film, so that might be the only good thing to come out of this. Even if the movie turns out to be another terrible disaster, I hope that the appearance of more Metal Hero characters is a sign that Toei has plans to revive the franchise with a new TV series. 

As we wait for the second rubber apocalypse to hit us on April 27, you can check out the new scans from the movie in the section below.
