I have been very nervous about the film, the date was recently announced, and all that, and yes, I know Tim Miller (Deadpool) is directing it but I decided to follow Naka-san on Facebook and found this in his photo gallery:
This is the best news that could ever have come my way. This means the film will be good and not shit. This is fucking awesome news. This made my year. なかーさん： ぼはとてもうれしいよ！よろしくおねがいします！
Even if his influence extended to a visit, that means he is aware of what they are doing and will have some kind of say!
