What’s so special about One Punch Man?
For many, One Punch Man It’s one of the best anime that have been done to date. It was born in 2009 as a webcomic that was published in Shonen Jump. It didn’t take long for it to go viral and achieve the fame it has now.
One Punch Man is a very interesting superhero story. atypicalwith many hints of humor and a perspective that we had not seen until now. For many comic book fans, superheroes like Superman are absurd for being virtually invincible. Y One Punch Man tells us a similar story with Saitamaa self-made man capable of defeating any enemy with a single punch.
Saitama lives in a city full of dangers, where monsters attack citizens day in and day out. However, he lives in an eternal apathy, because he has never found a rival who supposes some kind of effort.
All this is told by many humorous touchesbecause as has also happened on occasion in the Marvel universe, Saitama not only has the support of society, but is also accused of harming their lives. While he does crazy things like preventing his city from being crushed by a meteorite, his neighbors are only able to see how his houses have been damaged due to the action of the superhero.
At the moment, we do not know more details about this production, so we do not know the release date and casting. What is clear is that, although Vin Diesel would fit perfectly in the main role, he will not play the protagonist for obvious reasons.
