Spider-Man and Golden Kamuy Have a Lot in Common

posted on by Kim Morrissy

At first glance, you wouldn't think that Spider-Man and Golden Kamuy have much in common. The former is about a teenage superhero from modern-day New York, while the latter is about treasure hunting and indigenous Ainu culture in Hokkaido. But a recent collaboration between the two franchises is all about the Golden Kamuy characters finding some common ground.

The collab illustration shows the Golden Kamuy characters recreating Spider-Man's poses from the Spider-Man: Far From Home posters. The backgrounds may be completely different, but the characters capture the spirit of Spider-Man.

A collab video posted last week by Sony Pictures Japan also focuses on the similarities. During the video, Golden Kamuy antagonist Lieutenant Tsurumi shows up to explain that he and Marvel character Nick Fury have a lot in common. Like Fury, Tsurumi gathers a lot of tough people together under one banner, and he's also charismatic and has a scar on his face. Sugimoto and Aspira don't know enough about Marvel to contradict him, but they're convinced of Fury's ruthlessness when they see Spider-Man's friend getting shot in the trailer.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will open in Japan on June 28 and in the U.S. on July 2.

Noda launched the ongoing Golden Kamuy manga in Shueisha's Young Jump magazine in 2014. The anime adaptation's first season premiered in April 2018. The second season premiered last October.
