Even more exciting is the full film title: SHIN ULTRAMAN - Fantasy Tokusatsu Film! This is a throwback to the original subtitle for ULTRAMAN, "Fantasy Tokusatsu Series" back in 1966.

Fun fact: Tohl Narita never liked the Color Timer's addition. It plays into why Ultraseven never technically had one (apart from the blinking head lamp).

Cool, but I hope we get an actual movie with characters and a plot instead of a 2 hour political debate of watching people move from room to room and be told what room they are in every time.

That image of him standing from across the water is actually terrifying. I am hype for Anno Ultraman but I am also scared. Hahaha

Read that the Ultraman design was originally going to be the final alien villain of Ultra Q (Twilight Zone style show preceeding Ultraman) but got repurposed for Ultraman I wonder if Anno will be incorporating a bit of that paranormal eerieness
