Meanwhile, actor Jack Black has some ideas for The Super Mario Bros Movie sequel and he is suggesting Pedro Pascal get cast as Wario. Black voices Bowser in the animated movie. Although he is unsure if his character would return for a potential follow-up film, he would want ‘The Mandalorian’ star to voice Mario’s arch-rival.
“It’s not a given that Bowser will return. You know, I did a few ‘Kung Fu Panda‘ movies, and it was a different villain every movie. They may do the same thing,” Black told Game Spot.
He added, “You know, what if there is a more powerful, more evil villain? Then I may need to be turned to help Mario and the rest to defend our universe against some other unseen force of evil. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Wario. Pedro Pascal is Wario.”
