The movie was announced in the 17th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump and first premiered in Japan on December 20, 2019. It premiered in North America and the United Kingdom on February 26, 2020.


“A must-see story full of passion!! In this movie, Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Ochaco Uraraka, Shoto Todoroki, and all the other members of Class 1-A will make an appearance!

Even though All Might was admired by many all around the world, it was with a sad heart that he had to give up his hero role as the Symbol of Peace. Because of this, a dark force who was moving behind the scenes, a villain named Nine who can be considered the greatest villain thus far.”[2]



Late at night sometime in the winter, in the outskirts of Japan, the police and multiple Pro Heroes are in pursuit of the League of Villains, who are escaping in an armored truck carrying cargo requested by the Doctor. The cargo in question is a large fluid-filled life support tank harboring a man. With the combined efforts of Spinner, Dabi, and Mr. Compress, the villains manage to hold off their pursuers. At the same time, Spinner wonders who alerted the authorities of their route, with Mr. Compress suspecting an information leak.

At the end of a turn is a roadblock guarded by police and Endeavor. Dabi fires of a blast of his flames at the Pro Hero, and Endeavor uses his Flashfire Fist - Jet Burn, with both attacks colliding and canceling each other out. Shortly after, Dabi lets out a massive blast of his flames, with Endeavor countering with his Prominence Burn. The move easily overpowers the attack and engulfs the truck. The villains melt into piles of sludge, revealing that they were clones created by Twice.

The truck crashes into the surrounding forest, and the wreckage is soon visited by Hawks. When examing the contents of the truck, the life support tank is revealed to be empty. Hawks suspected the truck was carrying a new type of Nomu, but later believes it was something else.

The man in the tank, Nine, stumbles into the forest and up a small hill, where he meets with his associates: Chimera, Mummy, and Slice. Nine then looks over the city, telling his friends that the experiment was a success.
