Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Before Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods was released in 2013, the first draft had a very different story from the final version and it was originally written by Yusuke Watanabe.


Not much is known about the plot, but the movie was going to be set during Krillin and Android 18's wedding, and Beerus was an evil lizard that infected planets with evil, and it would've been revealed that the Saiyans were originally good but Beerus turned them evil. Beerus turns all of Goku's friends against him and Goku turns Super Saiyan God (Which had a more muscular appearance, had hair that was the same length as Super Saiyan 4, and it had a cape) and he would eventually defeat Beerus


The cast would've been the same but without the actors of Whis and the Pilaf Gang, and Beerus might've had a different voice actor as well

Differences between Watanabe's version and the final version[]

  • It would've taken place during Krillin and 18's wedding instead of Bulma's birthday (mentioned earlier)
  • Three original characters would've tried to steal the Dragon Balls instead of Pilaf's Gang
  • Beerus was a lizard rather than a cat in Watanabe's version (mentioned earlier)
  • Vegeta’s “My Bulma” scene wouldn’t have been in it
  • Beerus would've been pure evil and would've likely been killed by Goku like the rest of the villains from previous Dragon Ball movies
  • Super Saiyan God had a much different design from the final version

Why it was Cancelled[]

Akira Toriyama took over as the writer and he rewrote the script


  • This version of Battle of Gods was cancelled
  • The final version of Battle of Gods was released on March 30, 2013 and was a box office success with positive reviews from fans and critics
