Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie director Jeff Fowler is currently doing the press rounds this week to promote the sequel and as you can probably imagine, he's being asked all sorts of questions about what type of video game movie adaptation he would like to work on next.

Speaking to, Jeff was asked if he would be interested in working on something to do with the Smash Bros. series if given the opportunity. While he's not so sure about getting the legal permissions required to make a crossover like this happen, he said he was still keen on the idea - noting how eager everyone probably was to see Mario and Sonic duke it out.

"Nothing would make me happier than to just throw all the characters into a battle royale and do a big Smash Bros. thing. That would probably require some work from the lawyers before that could happen...Getting Mario and Sonic in the ring, I mean everyone would be kinda dying for that, right? That's just classic."

While the whole idea of such a thing might seem like a pipe dream right now, who knows what could potentially happen in the future, as so many movie companies now want to recreate the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with other franchises.

Mario is also getting his very own animated movie later this year. It will star Chris Pratt as Mario and is being created by the team at Illumination (Despicable Me) with involvement from Mario's creator Shigeru Miyamoto. Would you be interested in a Smash Bros. movie? Leave a comment below.
