“I did not believe it at all when I heard that they might be making a film, but I have been more than happy since I learned that it was really happening. Not to mention Deku and others’ action, I think that the film will have a lot of content, such as a certain character’s past that has not been told in the manga story yet and flashy action scenes that can be shown only in a film. You can look forward to it!”
