Back in December 2019, the second My Hero Academia movie released in Japanese cinemas. Now, nearly a year after, we have word that a third My Hero Academia movie is in the works!
The official My Hero Academia anime series, movie, and manga Twitter pages recently released Tweets that tease the upcoming movie. Each page Tweeted a teaser, which when combined, also spell out the phrase “HE WILL MEET ”THE THREE MUSKETEERS”. Aside from this phrase, each tweet also links to different My Hero Academia pages which feature one image each. When combined, the images form a new key visual featuring Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki.

Aside from the new key visual, we have no word yet on what the story of the third My Hero Academia movie will be. Though given the Three Musketeers reference, we expect that the film will center on Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki as they team up to face off against a powerful enemy. The third movie featuring the three heroes also makes sense as the first film mostly featured Deku, while the second had Deku and Bakugo sharing the spotlight.
The first My Hero Academia film titled ‘Two Heroes’ was released in Japan back in 2018. Two Heroes also released in the Philippines during that year. Meanwhile, the second film titled ‘Heroes Rising’ released in Japan last December, though it did not get a Philippine cinema release.
