The Godfather Part II isn’t just one of the greatest sequels of all time, but also one of the greatest films of all time. The film has influenced a lot of artists, and gave Robert de Niro an Oscar. However, the upcoming live-action Gintama 2 film just parodied it big time with a new visual:
Well, leave it to Gintama to parody a classic Hollywood film, huh? But then again, many consider Gintama as the Deadpool of the anime and manga world. From skewering other franchises with parodies to breaking the 4th wall, the two franchises have a lot in common, huh?
The new visual features actor Jiro Sato in his “mysterious” and unrevealed role. This will be a completely new role for him, as he previously played Takechi Henpeita in the first film. It also reveals its 17th August premiere in Japan.
Masaki Suda and Kanna Hashimoto are reprising their roles as Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura respectively. Meanwhile, Shun Oguri is also coming back as the one and only Gintoki Sakata.
