We've written quite a bit about the disastrous Super Mario Brothers Movie but a new book, Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation, explores some of the making of the film. /Film has an excerpt and it's pretty wild. Did you know Dustin Hoffman really wanted to play Mario?

Yes!!! Make that Nightwing series happen. Big Teen Titans fan.
I don't think the second Spider-Man bombed, but it was not as good as the first.

Pat Dilloway said...

In retrospect Bob Hoskins probably wished Hoffman had got that role. A Nightwing series could be cool. It seems DC is really spreading their shows around. They'd have shows on CW, Fox, NBC, and TNT then.

Maurice Mitchell said...

The Titans show does sound good and I wonder the same thing. DC is missing focus.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Yeah bombed might be the wrong word.

Tony Laplume said...

Amazing Spider-Man 2 "bombed," I think, because it was a downer. Peoples like their Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man to be, well, friendly. (This is not to say I have suddenly stopped loving it myself.) That and everyone still seems to be having a major problem with this reboot, probably because the Raimi films were amazingly (heh) successful.

Maurice Mitchell said...

LOL well said Tony, it bombed in my mind.
