I rather not have a cinematic universe (Though a Smash Bros movie would probably be fun, lol). But I do want individual movies. Mostly Zelda. And if Mario is what it takes to get a Zelda movie, so be it. And if it flops we’ll probably have to wait another 30 years for a Nintendo based movie.
What I’m holding on to is the fact (I forget who at Nintendo) said within the last year they wouldn’t make a movie unless they could be involved themselves. And understandably so after the flop of the 90s Mario Bros movie. If Nintendo and Ubisoft could make Mario and Rabbids work, I think Nintendo and Illumination will do fine.
