The SEGA and Nintendo rivalry continues
A little over a week ago, Sonic was back in theaters to offer himself a second success that he hopes will be more impressive than the previous one. Although he is of a formidable speed, our dear hedgehog does not burn the stages and builds, little by little, an umpteenth record in theaters as demonstrated by French box office figures. If you want to know everything about this second opus, it’s happening herebut know already that the film is positioned as an adaptation at the height of the license, even if the critics do not spare the few defects of the feature film by Jeff Fowler.
Anyway, the film franchise erases its mistakes over the iterations and the future of it is built little by little. The long-term goal? Copy Marvel, in a way, to build an extended universe in cinema, and much more. For the moment, the third part has not yet been formalized even if clues point to a new adventure for Sonic and his band. Will we find Jeff Fowler behind the camera? The question is still in suspense, but if the latter is absent from the production, he already has other dreams in mind, sometimes very complex to put in place, which he would like to accomplish.
Super Smash Bros on the big screen, is it possible?!
As part of the film’s promotional campaign across the Atlantic, the director of Sonic 2 was interviewed by a multitude of media, but it was at the microphone of the Comicbook site that the latter had comments that could leave more people dreaming. an aficionado of Nintendo-branded games. Indeed, at the turn of a question, Jeff Fowler explained that he would love to have the chance to make a feature film in the universe of Super Smash Bros. !
Nothing would make me happier than throwing all the characters into a battle royale and doing a big Smash Bros. thing. Putting Mario and Sonic in the ring, I mean everyone was dying for it, right? It’s just classic. — Jeff Fowler, director of Sonic 2 the movie
If it is a dream for the director, the border between fantasy and nightmare could not be finer! The guy is well aware of the enormous legal complications that such a project could cause and, for the moment, all this is only fantasy in his mind.. Lucid about the difficulties, he adds:
It would probably require some work from the lawyers before that could happen. — Jeff Fowler, director of Sonic 2 the movie
If ever such a project were to come to fruition, the filmmaker would go directly to the side of the competition, thus relaunching the battle of mascots that SEGA and Nintendo fought during the 90s. In the meantime, Jeff Fowler seems to be well and truly attached to the universe built around Sonic for more than two years, and interested in keeping it going.
