It looks to be an ‘all for one, one for all’ thing

My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) and The Three Musketeers? Anyone who is a fan of the manga or the anime knows that it has a crucial reference to the Alexandre Dumas classic, and not to mention a ton of not-so-hidden Star Wars references. 

So when it was teased that there is a third My Hero Academia film coming soon, with a key visual that hints on some three Musketeers, no one was really surprised. But everyone is excited to see the heroes of UA’s Class-1A back on the big screen (well, assuming local theaters will be open by the time this film comes out in 2021 or maybe 2022?). 

There is not much detail about this upcoming film yet, save for a key visual released on the official My Hero Academia Twitter page, which features three heroes who are obviously Bakugo Katsuki, Midoriya Izuku, and Todoroki Shoto. With the visual is a text that simply says: He will meet “the three Musketeers.” 

Who “he” is, at this point, is anyone’s guess. But could the three Musketeers be referring to the UA Class-1A trio of Midoriya, Bakugo, and Todoroki? Perhaps. And could it have something to do with the concept of “sharing” One For All, which was shown possible—albeit with mixed reactions from fans—in the second My Hero Academia movie in 2019? Who knows? 

What we do know is that the fifth season of the anime is coming this 2021 summer. So if you haven’t yet watched season 4, which is already out on Netflix, you still have time to catch up.
