The official site for the Detective Conan: Black Iron Submarine movie states that “a key point of the film is the relationship between Conan, Ai Habara, and the Black Organization, with whom they have history. Will Conan and Haibara, who have a fateful relationship, clash with the Black Organization, and finally reveal their true identities? Please continue to pay attention to this work that is still wrapped in a veil!”
Yuzuru Tachikawa (Mob Psycho 100, Blue Giant, Death Parade) is directing the movie. Takeharu Sakurai, a long-time writer of other Detective Conan movies, will be writing the screenplay.
