Below are their actor comments:
Hidetoshi Nishijima: Since it is directed by Shiraishi, I am sure that it will be a deep and profound socially-oriented human drama. I will make it a film that adults can enjoy and also for children so they can carry Kamen Rider in their hearts! I want to do my best and risk my life to take on this challenge. I would like to take on this role with everything in my power and everything I have.
Tomoya Nakamura: In true Shiraishi fashion, I have a feeling that this will be a work where we can enjoy the story of people, history, catharsis, the true spirit of Kamen Rider, and the pain that Black carries with him.
In addition to that, a visual of the Kamen Rider Black Sun suit was revealed.
