One Punch Man is one of the most critically acclaimed anime and manga series, and that's largely due to its illustrations. The illustrator has offered his take on other series in the past, but his art for Spider-Man: Homecoming is a different beast altogether.
He's been teasing sketches of the art for the last few weeks, but the completed version of the poster was revealed at Tokyo Comic-Con and it will surely make Spider-Man fans salivate:

Murata's completed poster features Spider-Man and Iron Man in a stylized pose that would have been very welcome in the film itself. Peter is shooting his patented webs while Tony is getting ready to shoot repulsor blasts from his gauntlets. Far in the background is the Avengers Tower for just that extra bit of goodness fans would be sure to appreciate.
Murata has officially provided art for Marvel's Spider-Man before. Not only did he draw for Edge of Spider-Verse, but also provided the fantastic Japanese poster for Spider-Man: Homecoming.
For those unfamiliar with One Punch Man, the series follows Saitama, a regular working Joe who one day puts a stop to a violent villain attack. After this fight Saitama is inspired to become a hero. Training his body hard everyday, he's eventually granted with extreme strength. Looking for a worthy opponent, Saitama joins the Hero Association in the hopes of fighting them. But every fight he gets into ends after a single punch! Forced to wander through life increasingly bored of his supreme power, Saitama has become hilariously disconnected with the world of action around him.
One Punch Man started life as a webcomic by series creator ONE in 2009. After going viral, surpassing seven million hits in June 2012, illustrator Yusuke Murata approached ONE about redrawing the series for a release in Shuiesha's Weekly Young Jump spin-off webcomics. Thirteen volumes of the series have been released as of this date.
VIZ Media bought the rights to distribute the manga in English, and the series was later adapted into a 12 episode anime series from Madhouse. The series first aired in Japan in 2015, and later debuted its English language broadcast on Adult Swim's Toonami block in 2016.
