With Detective Pikachu now out at theaters, fans are already dreaming of what movies could be next. We know a Mario movie is coming, but what else could get greenlit? Could we eventually get to a time where a Smash Bros. movie happen?
While that might be a pipe dream, the writers behind Detective Pikachu have shared how they'd pull off a film adaptation like that. Here’s what they had to say in an interview with Screen Rant.
"I think that the key to doing anything like that is to make sure that the other introductory movies are sensational. It’d be a dream to write something like Legend of Zelda, but before you can get to that Smash Bros stage you have to write the best damn version of The Legend of Zelda that you possibly can. And the same with Mario, the same with Kirby, the same with Star Fox." - Dan Hernandez
"Avengers: Endgame is only as good as it is because we loved all of those characters individually, so when it came together it was just magic. And I think that’s how you have to approach the Smash Bros." - Benji Samit
