As you might recall, Illumination - the company behind Despicable Me - is bringing a Super Mario animated movie to the big screen in 2022. It will be co-produced by Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto and Illumination's CEO Chris Meledandri.

Now in a new update, there's a rumour the Super Mario movie will be directed by the creators of the Teen Titans Go! cartoon animation. This information was first spotted by Twitter user @Mevans2703 who shared a LinkedIn profile of an Illumination character animator.

In part of the profile, it states the following: "Character Animator on "MARIO" directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic."

Jelenic is previously credited on a number of DC Batman animated television and movie projects and has assisted with series like Scooby-Doo! and Ben 10. Apart from Teen Titans, Horvath has contributed to animations such as Lego's Unikitty! show.

Just last month, the American stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco mentioned how he would have a role as Spike in the upcoming movie. Spike starred in Wrecking Crew alongside the Mario Bros.
