A pair of brand new villains have been revealed for My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, with just about a month to go until the film’s Japanese theatrical release.

The film’s official Twitter posted about Mummy and Chimera, the latest characters to join the villainous ensemble cast of My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising.

Mummy, who looks quite creepy covered in red bandages, will be played by Kousuke Toriumi (Naruto, Bleach, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure), while the wolf-like Chimera will be played by Shunsuke Takeuchi (ASTRA LOST IN SPACE, Mob Psycho 100, Bungo Stray Dogs).

With All Might retired, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising looks to truly challenge the likes of Deku, Bakugo and Todoroki as they take on these new villains and come together for a heroic team-up with all of Class 1-A.
