ONE-PUNCH MAN Artist Did the Japanese SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Poster

Spider-Man: Homecoming may be closing in on the $300 million mark at the domestic box office, but there are still some countries that still haven’t seen Peter Parker’s first solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Next week, the film is opening in Japan, and Sony is paving the way for its release with an all-new poster by One-Punch Man illustrator Yusuke Murata!

Via io9, the poster was released via the official Japanese Spider-Man: Homecoming Twitter account. It’s definitely an arresting image of Spider-Man battling the Vulture, with Iron Man hanging back near the bottom of the piece.

This is by far, one of our favorite posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming. It kind of makes us wish that Murata would take on an adaptation of the film in manga form. Or better yet, an original Spider-Man tale.

Spider-Man actually has a long history in Japan, so we expect that Homecoming will do very well there. Back in 1978, Marvel allowed Toei to create a live-action Spider-Man TV series that completely re-imagined the title character. For that incarnation, Spidey got his signature powers from an alien, and he also had his own giant robot called Leopardon! Spidey’s iconic costume was more or less intact.

Some fans may think that Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s artificial intelligence (a.k.a. Karen) is too out of place for the title character. But we think it would be awesome to see Leopardon make its MCU debut as well. After all, the Japanese incarnation of Spidey and Leopardon have already been made canon by Marvel Comics’ Spider-Verse event. A new live-action version of Leopardon should be the natural next step. Make it happen, Sony!
