With its August premiere date fast approaching, the staff for the upcoming Gintama 2 live-action film has revealed more characters. This time, they revealed that Kotarou Katsura, Tae Shimura, and of course, Elizabeth are appearing in the sequel. Masami Nagasawa returns as Tae Shimura, while Masaki Okada also returns as Kotarou Katsura. However, they did not specify if Takayuki Yamada is returning in Gintama 2 as Elizabeth.
The staff are also revealing new cast members every day, from 22nd-26th May. The first of their daily cast reveals is Tsuyoshi Maruo, who will be reprising his role as Gengai Hiraga.
They will be joining the previously-revealed cast members. Masaki Suda and Kanna Hashimoto are reprising their roles as Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura respectively. Meanwhile, Shun Oguri is also coming back as the one and only Gintoki Sakata. Finally, Jiro Sato will also be returning from the first film, but this time in a different and unspecified role.
The staff is still very secretive about the film’s other details. However, we do know that Yuuichi Fukuda is directing the film, which has already wrapped-up filming. Yeah, they’re certainly planning something big with this much secrecy happening. However, since this is Gintama, they might just be trolling… as usual.
