According to a Deadline report from June 2022, the Fast & Furious director will helm Sony’s live-action One Punch Man adaptation. Which is based on the well-known Japanese shonen manga franchise of the same name. It tells the tale of Saitama, a superhero who grew to be so powerful that he could defeat any foe with a single blow. Saitama looks for a deserving foe to defeat when he grows bored and unchallenged.
Screenwriters Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, who wrote Venom, will collaborate once more on the project for Sony. Producer for the film will be Avi Arad, who has contributed to the Venom and Spider-Man films.
One Punch Man was first published as a webcomic by artist ONE in 2009, and Yusuke Murata provided the graphics for the manga adaptation that year. After its Netflix debut, the series gained further popularity in America and was soon converted into a popular anime.
Here is all we currently know about the impending live-action One Punch Man movie, including a release date prediction, plot, cast list, trailer, and the most recent information. So let’s dive in.
One Punch Man Live-Action Release Date
It didn’t take Justin Lin long to jumpstart another franchise after he left the Fast & Furious franchise after Fast X. It was the eleventh film in the series. It’s too early to give the movie an official release date at this time. It’ll probably air after Season 3 of the anime series. However, as soon as Sony gives us the latest release date information, we’ll let you know. The project was just officially announced in June 2022, so it’s unlikely that the movie will be released within the next few months.
The movie will probably closely follow the manga series of the same name by ONE. Saitama, the main character of One Punch Man, is known for his one-punch ability to dispatch any foe. The anime series’ first season, in which Saitama and Geno join the Hero Association, served as the basis for the movie’s story adaptation. You can count on lots of exciting battles against powerful monsters as well as, of course, humor.
One Punch Man Live-Action Trailer
We’ll probably need to wait more than a year before an official trailer for the One Punch Man live-action film is published because development is still very much in progress.
Staff and Cast
The official One Punch Man movie cast has not yet been revealed by Sony. But we will update this article as soon as we learn more about the actors playing Saitama and other well-known manga/anime series characters.
One Punch Man began as a web comic using the pen name One, but as it gained popularity, Yusuke Murata created an official manga adaptation. The manga was soon turned into an anime by Madhouse, which finally became a critical and economic success. Although the second season of the programme, which debuted several years after the first and was produced by J.C. Staff rather than Madhouse, received at best average reviews. The first season is widely regarded as one of the best anime seasons of all time.
