Obviously there’s nothing official in the works and no one knows what’s next, but Rogen clearly has an interest in the idea.

“It would be fun. I honestly had a great time doing it and I think like it’s a big world, gigantic, and it seems to be a thing that people are excited to see.”

I would enjoy a DK solo outing but they need to recast the voice. Nothing like having someone who hates doing the job playing the role and in this case a neolib anti worker who likes to stiff people on pay.

I fully welcome more Nintendo movies, pending a successful Mario movie. But why does Seth Rogen get to dip his toes in so many of our childhood favorites? He's not particularly good at anything he's done (though I haven't seen the stoner comedies he's known for).

Please don't let him have any creative control. He's already actively trying to ruin TMNT
