Some exciting news is coming out of Tsuburaya Productions today as we have been given our first glimpse at the 2018 Ultraman, at least in silhouette form. In the image below, we get our initial look at the new character, unnamed as of this writing. Tsuburaya has trademarks for three new character names currently, leading to a few possible theories. One is that the name is not final; another, that we will have multiple lead characters this year.
As of this writing, we have the possible names Ultraman Lube, Ultraman Rosso, and Ultraman Bull. A fourth name, Ultraman Bright has also been floating around the rumor mill, as well as speculation that the new Ultraman for 2018 will be the son of Ultraman Taro, in the same way Ultraman Geed was the son of Ultraman Belial. Any rumors, at this point, are purely speculation, but the possibilities are very exciting nonetheless. You can find updates here as they become available, and look forward to Ultraman 2018 premiering later on this year.
