  • Everyone’s favorite bald-headed superhero will be punching his way onto the big screen in a live-action adaptation of “One Punch Man” helmed by “Fast & Furious” director Justin Lin.

  • Lin will be joined by veteran superhero movie producers Avi and Ari Anrad and script writers Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pikner, who have previously worked on “Venom” and “Jumanji: The Next Level”.

  • “One Punch Man” tells the story of Saitama, a superhero with the overpowered ability to completely obliterate any opponent with a single punch, which is often played up for comedic effect.

Everyone’s favorite bald-headed superhero will be punching his way onto the big screen in a live-action adaptation of “One Punch Man” helmed by “Fast & Furious” director Justin Lin. 

After revitalizing the “Fast & Furious” franchise by directing highly successful installments that shifted the series’ trajectory from street racers to superspies, Lin recently left the ”Fast” family, exiting as director of “Fast X,” and will steer Sony’s film adaptation of the immensely popular web-comic, manga and anime series.

Lin will be joined by veteran superhero movie producers Avi and Ari Anrad and script writers Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pikner, who have previously worked on “Venom” and “Jumanji: The Next Level”.  

“One Punch Man” tells the story of Saitama, a superhero with the overpowered ability to completely obliterate any opponent with a single punch, which is often played up for comedic effect. The series has been acclaimed for its deadpan humor and exhilarating, yet predictable, action sequences.

Hopefully, the upcoming adaptation of this superhero satire will be a breath of fresh air for moviegoers that have become jaded by a cinema landscape inundated with a multiverse of web-slingers and caped crusaders.
