You want to show fans a teaser, but there’s not enough finished footage to fill much time, so what do you do? What would Deadpool do? In the case of the first look at his upcoming movie sequel, he offers a little skit spoofing iconic PBS painting show host Bob Ross.

Nintendo, one of the biggest video game companies in history, hasn’t bothered with movie adaptations for almost 25 years. Since the failure of 1993’s live-action Super Mario Bros. starring Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo and Dennis Hopper, there’s been little to no interest to try again. Rumors have circulated in recent years about deals with Disney or general plans for big screen versions of its properties. But we’re now on the verge of something real happening. And again it involves the Mario brand.  According to the Wall Street Journal (via io9), Nintendo is nearing a deal with Universal Pictures and the animation studio Illumination Entertainment, makers of the Minions (via the Despicable Me trilogy and spin-off), plus recent…Read More
