The original console war
Sonic is currently finding success in the cinemas, and Mario’s about to try things again with an Illumination project. With these big-name characters heading to the movies, it makes you wonder if we could ever see some sort of Smash Bros.-style cinematic collaboration.
If that were ever to happen, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 director Jeff Fowler would love to tackle it. In an interview with Comicbook.com, Fowler opened up about his interest in such a project.
“Nothing would make me happier than to just throw all the characters into a battle royale and do a big Smash Bros. thing. That would probably require some work from the lawyers before that could happen. Getting Mario and Sonic in the ring, I mean everyone would be kinda dying for that, right? That’s just classic.”
As of right now, there are no such plans for a Smash Bros. movie, but you never know what the future holds. Cinematic universes are all the rage right now, an Nintendo could certainly usher in a universe of their own when it comes to cinema.
