When we heard that our favorite superhero fiction is returning with a new live-action film, we couldn’t contain our excitement. Some sources reveal that show makers have passed green light to this anime. If you want to know more about the upcoming film continue reading this article.
Details about One Punch Man Live-Action
After gaining fame not only in Japan but also worldwide, it seems like Saitama is returning with a brand new film. There are some speculations that it is coming out as a Live-Action Movie. It will be developed by Sony and written by the Venom Writers. Sony hasn’t decided who will be playing the role of Saitama. They are making efforts in auditions for even smaller roles in the film.
According to the sources, Arad Brothers would serve as the producers along with Scott Rosenberg. Besides, Jeff Pinkner would be writing the story. If you don’t remember these guys, then let me remind you that Pinkner and Rosenberg were behind the success of Marvel’s Venom (2018). But before they begin the production, they must understand what it means to be a hero just for fun and entertainment.
If you have seen DC and Marvel movies, the heroes are pretty serious about saving the world, but Saitama is a different character. The show is based on satire and humor, rather than a serious action superhero series. Arad Brothers have done great work at adapting comics, so let’s just hope that this movie will be a success.
When will One Punch Man Live-action Movie Premiere?
Now non-Japanese fans from all over the globe can enjoy this show dubbed in English on Netflix. The first season of the anime was released on October 4, 2015, and ended on December 21, 2015. As soon as it hit the TV screens, it gained a lot of success. The show rose to popularity after season 1, so the makers decided to renew the show for a new season.
After four years, the second season One Punch Man premiered on April 9, 2019, and ended on July 2, 2019. Now fans are expecting the new live-action movie to roll out this year. However, the film is as of now in a very early stage of development, so the launch date is yet to come out soon. Also, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we might notice a delay in the production of the film. We can expect the movie to premiere by the end of 2021 or 2022.
One Punch Man Live-Action Plot:
Fans are anticipated to know the storyline of One Punch Man Live-Action film. The finale of the previous season highlighted the hardships of Garou’s lifetime. The second season centered around him. The plot embodied Garou’s journey to turning into a negative character and choosing the wrong way. He used to believe that people want to become the hero to gain power and authority.
So he thought by becoming the villain, he could still gain power. We speculate that the film will be the continuation of the previous season. Moreover, it might also reveal that Garou chose Saitama. Furthermore, it could take us back to his childhood. We could possibly see romance in Saitama’s life too. In the upcoming season, fans might also see flashbacks out of Saitama’s and Garou’s lives.
The story could also differ because it will be produced by Sony. As we all know, Hollywood is mostly known for adding their twist and turn to the film. Sony is really trying hard to break the records and make One Punch Man one of the highest budgeted films.
And let’s just hope manga and anime lovers love the storyline of the upcoming live-action film.
