New details about Goku's impending throw down with the God of Destruction.
The official website for the March 30, 2013 anime movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods has been updated with new details about Goku's impending throw down with the God of Destruction.
The new movie will take place between Dragon Ball manga chapters 517 and 518, in the 10-year timeskip after Goku defeats Buu, before the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament.
From Saiyan Island's translation:
The story takes place a few years after the fierce battle with Majin Buu. Bils, the God of Destruction who maintains the balance of the universe, awakens from a long slumber. Hearing rumors that a Saiyan defeated Frieza, Bils goes on a search to track down the warrior who championed this feat – Goku. King Kai advises Goku to avoid a confrontation, however, Goku is ecstatic that a new opponent has appeared after many years and decides to fight. Unfortunately, Goku is no match for Bils’ overwhelming power and is defeated. Bils leaves, asking if “there is anybody on Earth more worthy to destroy?” Will Goku and the Z Warriors really be able to stop the God of Destruction?!
