“We truly believe that all animated content that is being translated to live-action should be created by fans for the fans. That is our mission statement and we want to prove to Netflix that we have the passion, vision and fan perspective to bring One Punch Man to the live action arena in a way that will please both longtime fans as well as brand new audiences.”

Based on anime series, Genos is the disciple of Saitama. Hence, it would be fascinating to see who will turn out as the winner. Although the fight is basically a practice fight, the two will give it all.

The trailer definitely teases fans with Saitama and Genos’ breathtaking fight, jaw-dropping stunts. The fight will end Genos’ doubt on whether his master is truly undefeatable.

The trailer unveils Alfred Hsing as Saitama and Yoshi Sudarso playing Genos’ character. Sudarso can be seen in Power Rangers Dino Charge, Power Rangers Hyperforce, and Power Rangers Ninja Steel.
