It was revealed not too long ago that Chris Pratt was going to be the voice of Super Mario in an upcoming movie.
Well, the response to that news wasn’t overwhelmingly positive.
It was actually quite negative.
However, Chris Pratt seems to have found the funny side of all of this.
The actor shared what he called an “amazing first look” at Super Mario Bros.
He said this on Instagram.
What it really was was footage taken from the first Guardians Of The Galaxy movie with Mario’s hat, nose and moustache superimposed on Pratt’s face.
It’s a pretty hilarious video and a really good way to troll all the people who made fun of the casting.
Chris Pratt trolls Super Mario fans
It was revealed by Variety that he was the choice for the lead role in this upcoming film.
The movie is being made by Illumination – the company behind the Despicable Me and Minions movies.
It’s going to be interesting to see what they do with this much-coveted property.
The property is not only coveted by fans, but also by Nintendo itself.
The Super Mario Bros movie still seems to haunt Nintendo to this very day.
It’s stopped them from moving forward with other big and small screen projects.
For instance, Nintendo and Netflix were all set to work on a Legend Of Zelda series together.
However, it then got leaked and Nintendo decided to pull the plug on the project.
It was also revealed that Charlie Day is going to be the voice of Luigi in this movie – now, I think that’s great casting.
Anya Taylor-Joy will play Princess Peach, Jack Black will be the voice of Bowser, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike.
