Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z
is an upcoming film set to be released April 27 2013 following the first Super Hero Taisen
which was premiered on April 21, 2012, to mixed reviews. This movie will feature the first crossover
between characters of Toei
's three main Toku
franchises, Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and the Space Sheriff Series. The casts of Kamen Rider Wizard
, Jyuden Sentai Kyoryuger
, and Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie
will participate in the film. The Space Ironmen Kyodain
from Kamen Rider Fourze the Movie: Space, Here We Come!
will also make an appearance. The teaser for the film was shown after Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Wizard & Fourze: Movie War Ultimatum
This movie contains examples of the following tropes:
- Big Bad Ensemble: Space Shocker, lead by Space Ikadevil. There's also the Space Crime Syndicate Madou led by Strategist Reider.
- Fake Shemp: Inevitable, even before one takes into account the actors who died, retired from acting, or are just too busy.
- Let's You and Him Fight: Gavan type-G is charged with attempting to stop Space Shocker and is told their leaders use magic. This leads him to think Kamen Rider Wizard and Beast are the bad guys and goes out to murder them.
- Loads and Loads of Characters: Once again, we got characters from the Super Sentai and Kamen Rider franchises showing up, this time those from the Space Sheriff series'll appear, as well as Shotarou Ishinomori-based characters like the Space Ironmen and Inazuman, and if that's not enough, we're also getting a buttload of other Metal Heroes (see Unexpected Character).
- Gentarou, You Are My Teacher: The Inazuman from Movie War Ultimatum will appear here and promptly freak out Gentarou, since he's still a student here.
- Massive Multiplayer Crossover
- Space X: Space Shocker, lead by Space Ikadevil and Space Spider Man.
- Unexpected Character: Jiraiya, Jiban, Draft Redder, Janperson, Blue Beet and B-Fighter Kabuto. As only the Space Sheriffs appeared in early promotional material, and the title of the movie is Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z rather than Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Metal Heroes: Super Hero Taisen Z, it was assumed that the Space Sheriffs would be the only Metal Heroes to appear. This marks the first appearance of other Metal Heroes besides the Space Sheriffs after the Metal Heroes revival started in Gokaiger vs. Gavan.
- Turns out that they are in fact the Gokaigers, who changed into Kamen Rider OOO forms last time.
- While nothing is confirmed yet, the Net Movies feature a copyright mention of Marvel Comics, which might indicate an appearance by Supaidaman himself.
