Reboot of Kamen Rider Black Announced as Kamen Rider Black Sun

Toei has announced a reboot to the 1987 Kamen Rider Black titled Kamen Rider Black Sun.

The series will be aimed at older fans of the Kamen Rider series. The original Kamen Rider Black was the only series to have a direct sequel with Kamen Rider Black RX. The show’s logo is designed by calligrapher Souun Takeda while Kazuya Shiraishi will direct the series. Shiraishi is known for his work on Blood of the Wolves, a critically acclaimed crime drama movie.

Shiraishi shared his comments on the show:

“The thought of being in charge of this amazing reboot of Kamen Rider Black gives me the shivers. I’m going to need to rely on every bit of my skill to ensure I don’t get crushed by 50 years of Kamen Rider history. I want the tragic story of Kohtaro Minami and Nobuhiko Akizuki to carve a new niche in the chronicles of Japanese heroes. I plan on giving it my best, I hope everyone will see it!”

The original Kamen Rider Black followed the battle between two brothers who were destined to fight to the death to become the fabled Creation King.

Kamen Rider Black Sun will air in the spring of 2022.
