What would shape the possible Nintendo cinematic universe.
There were many doubts before the release of the Super Mario movie, especially since specialized critics They were not completely convinced with the proposal of Nintendo and Illumination. Luckily, we are talking about the fact that it was a complete success, making most of the fans fall in love with this character, which has ended up unleashing rumors about more movies that use Nintendo’s IP, which also have a lot of potential. When we think of this, probably the first franchise we think of is The Legend of Zelda, which has recently given us one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch, although recent reports speak of two other great IPs receiving films.
As reported from JoBlo, now a report has appeared, which we can find on Daniel Richtman’s Patreon, known for this kind of leak, in which he basically makes it clear that Nintendo and Illumination they would be working on bringing Luigi’s Mansion and Donkey Kong to the big screen.
Specifically, this report talks about four films that are in production: the two already mentioned, the sequel to the Super Mario movies, and the also mentioned The Legend of Zelda film. Of course, this is just a rumor, so you should take it with a grain of salt, especially since we also don’t have much information about it. Therefore, the smartest thing to do is wait until Nintendo decides to officially announce it.

Since the release of the Super Mario film, there has been speculation about the possibility of Nintendo trying to promote its own cinematic universe, in the style of Marvel.
