Kamen Rider Black Sun (仮面ライダーBLACKブラック SUNサン, Kamen Raidā Burakku San) is an upcoming Japanese tokusatsu drama[1] based on the 1987 TV series Kamen Rider Black, announced as part of the Kamen Rider 50th Anniversary.[2]

The series is expected to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in the Fall of 2022.


Like previous reboots (Kamen Rider The First, The Next and Amazons) in the Heisei Era, Kamen Rider Black Sun along with Shin Kamen Rider is a Showa Rider reboot project in the Reiwa Era. The project title had been announced on April 3, 2021, the 50th Anniversary of Kamen Rider, and was originally announced to be a film.

On June 30, 2021, Shinichiro Shirakura was interviewed by Variety about Kamen Rider’s 50th anniversary, he spoke of the movie’s intent to be for older audiences and to use practical effects as much as possible mixed with CGI. He then commented on how Masked Rider failed when Black and Black RX were adapted in 1995 and joked this project was Toei’s “payback” to Saban.

Shirakura also commented that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a potential model for their international expansion plans.[3]

A press conference was announced on October 4th and took place on November 19, which was posted on Toei’s Japanese YouTube channel. [4][5]

On November 21 at a Tamashii Nations event, the production staff unveiled character designs for the show as well as teasing upcoming S.H. Figuarts and belt toys for the series.[6][7][8] The redesigned Battle Hopper was also revealed at the show, with the bike later being put on display at the 2021 Yokohama Hot Rod Show on December 5th to further promote the movie.[9] On March 1, 2022, Tomoya Nakamura wrapped up filming his scenes in the movie, having finished them all ahead of time.[10] However, the movie was still in development as the crew was still filming.

On March 18, the film’s official webpage unveiled the full costumes for Black and Shadow Moon, as well as the reveal of the Road Sector motorcycle.[11] Kaichiroh Kurosu also posted on Instagram that the film was delayed and had just finished shooting, now set for a fall 2022 release.[12]

On June 12, 2022, Toei announced that Amazon Prime had acquired the rights to stream Kamen Rider Black Sun, officially confirming it to be a drama series while also unveiling a visual.[13]

On June 16, 2022, a short teaser trailer was revealed during a Bandai Tamashii Nations interview with Kiyotaka Higuchi while also unveiling the completed design of the Black Sun S.H. Figuarts toy.[14]

  • Kamen Rider Black Sun is the first film reboot since Kamen Rider The First and Kamen Rider The Next, and the first since Kamen Rider Amazons to be oriented for a mature audience. Additionally, it is one of two film reboots announced during the Kamen Rider 50th Anniversary alongside Shin Kamen Rider, which premiered the year following this.
  • The film will be released in 2022, which marks the 35th anniversary of Kamen Rider Black.
  • As part of the build up to the film, Bandai made a crowdfunding campaign for a remake of the 1987 DX TV Power Henshin Belt called the "DX Henshin Belt King Stone".[19] Since the old belt responded to flashing from a CRT TV, the remake comes with a special DVD of Kamen Rider Black episodes to activate the infrared sensor during Kohtaro’s transformation scenes. The crowdfund was successful gaining 140% of its intended goal with almost ¥28 million in funds.
