Nintendo and Illumination will be reuniting for yet another film on the iconic Mario Brothers, although they are not describing it as a sequel to The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Chris Meledandri and Shigeru Miyamoto will return as producers, and Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic will serve as the film’s directors.

While talking to Screen Rant, Chris Pratt opened up about what the announced film could do for the Nintendo Cinematic Universe, and according to him, the possibilities are just endless. He believes that they have only grazed the tip of the iceberg with the Mario characters.

He stated,

“Oh, man! There’s so much to explore. There are decades worth of [games] to explore, not only with Mario and Peach and Donkey Kong and Luigi and Bowser and Yoshi; that was teased at the end.

But it just gets me so excited. I was such a Nintendo head growing up, so just thinking about how everything from Legend of Zelda to the entire Nintendo cinematic universe could be created and what that could look like for all of these characters that I love? I mean, there’s really no limit. We could talk about it for hours.”

The Marvel Cinematic Universe started off with the big boss, Iron Man, and then went on to create films for other superheroes from the Marvel comics. If The Super Mario Bros. Movie is the Nintendo equivalent of Iron Man, more characters should get their own films, should the cinematic universe become a reality.

Now, one of the best things in the MCU has always been the superhero crossovers. Remember how we all collectively went crazy watching Avengers: Infinity War? Well, the Nintendo world has its own Infinity War Super Smash Bros.
