Despite The Super Mario Bros. only premiering a few days ago in theaters, Black has already expressed interest in a sequel. This time, the comedian wants a Bowser’s Revenge spinoff film.

“It would be cool to have ‘Bowser’s Revenge.’ Or a spinoff that’s just ‘Bowser Town,'” Black said. “Like a whole planet of Browsers. But that’s not my job. I’m not the writer. I’ll do whatever direction they want to go.”
