One of the biggest surprises of the last Nintendo Direct was, without a doubt, the revelation of the cast that will give life to the protagonists of the next film of Super Mario Bros. Of course, the actors that were selected weren’t to the liking of the entire community, so it was a matter of time before fans came up with their own ideal cast.
As we informed you, it will be the Hollywood actor Chris Pratt who will play Mario himself in the Illumination film. However, a fan assured on Twitter that Danny DeVito, who is recognized for his role as Harry Wormwood in the film Matilda, it is a better choice for paper. Surprisingly, thousands of people agreed with such a statement.

Beyond the meme, we must remember that Charlie Day will be the one who will play Luigi. Thus, said actor shared the screen with Danny DeVito in the sitcom It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia of 2005, reason why the fans considered that it was a “criminal” act not to repeat this pair in the film co-produced by Universal and Nintendo.
Fans reacted with memes to the announcement of the cast of the film
The cast of the Super Mario Bros film will have great stars from film and television, among which we find Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Jack Black, and so on. Of course, the announcement did not please all the players, who showed their discontent with memes and criticism on social networks.
