Nintendo Movies After Super Mario Could Happen, Suggests Copyright
It is quite possible that the entertainment world is living in a golden age of video game film adaptations. The past few years have seen fairly successful adaptations of Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, and Uncharted as theatrical films, with one of the next big ones on deck being the Super Mario Bros. animated movie. While the project has been delayed a few months from its initial release date, the film is still highly anticipated by Super Mario fans. Many have wondered if more films after this could be a possibility, and now a new copyright may point to a potential universe of Nintendo movies.
There are copyright records for the Illumination Mario movie, which have the expected companies listed, but there’s also new companies: “Nintendo Studios, LLC” and “M Brothers Productions, LLC”. Guessing these are the studios Nintendo will be listing their movies under pic.twitter.com/IydjzrkLyH

Twitter user MichaelO2000 recently shared new screenshots of a newly discovered Nintendo copyright that was filed for the upcoming Super Mario Bros. movie. As Michael points out in a post on Twitter, copyrights for the animated Illumination and Universal Pictures project appear to have been filed under Nintendo Studios LLC and M Brothers Productions LLC on December 19th, 2019, with both applications shown to have been formally recorded in March 2022.
With the appearance of these dedicated movie divisions under the larger Nintendo, this copyright might indicate Nintendo has some serious plans for its popular IPs. By all appearances, Nintendo Studios and M Brothers Productions were likely established to separate this film project from the rest of Nintendo, but it could also suggest some intentions to make more Nintendo movies featuring their characters after the Super Mario animated film.
A previous rumor suggested that the film’s version of Donkey Kong (voiced by Seth Rogen) could potentially star in his own spin-off film. It is also potentially possible that the M Brothers Productions LLC might focus on Mario-centric projects, with the Nintendo Studios LLC allowing for projects outside of the Mario World. Hopefully, these possibilities are all explored so fans can be treated to a Super Smash Bros. movie featuring Josh Brolin as Master Hand and Brie Larson finally playing Samus.
