 Long awaited by tokusatsu fans the world over, Shin Ultraman now has a release date of May 13, 2022. This new teaser was shown during the 2021 Tsuburaya Convention livestream, along with announcements for a new GridmanxDynazenon crossover movie, and an upcoming Ultraman comic, Another Gene, with art from Gurihiru (Superman Smashes the Clan, The Rise of Ultraman).

Directed by Shinji Higuchi (Shin Godzilla) and written by Hideaki Anno (Love & Pop), Shin Ultraman was initially slated for a 2021 release, but a near global collapse can sometimes lead to some slight delays. Anno is also working on the upcoming Shin Kamen Rider, slated for 2023.
