There’s been a lot of news surrounding leaked emails from Sony Pictures about movies based on various Nintendo properties, and the man leading the charge is none other than Avi Arad, the father of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We know that they were hoping to secure rights to make movies based on Mario, Pokémon, and Super Smash Bros.—the third of which was likely positioned to be their answer to The Avengers—and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that if these movies were successful, they wouldn’t have stopped there.

It’s really interesting to consider what a Nintendo Cinematic Universe might have looked like. We discuss the subject briefly on
this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo podcast here at Gamnesia, so check out the video above to give it a listen.

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
