Fans call for Bowser to get his own spin-off movie after wild success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Fans have been going wild for the Nintendo villain after the movie's smash-hit success.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie has left fans begging for more, with some begging for the ultimate mushroom movie power-up of all: the spin-off.

And there is one character in particular that has fans calling to get his own movie.

It's none other than Jack Black's take on iconic Nintendo super villain, Bowser.

The film just became the biggest video game adaption of all time and its opening weekend marked the biggest ever opening for an animated film worldwide.

The family film, starring Chris Pratt and Charlie Day, had had fans racing to theatres since it premiered on 5 April, earning a whopping $508.7 million in just one week.

The Super Mario Bros. movie is doing brilliantly in the box office.

And an estimated $368 million of that came just from its opening weekend.

Fans have taken to social media to call for Bowser to get the spin-off treatment, coming up with some pretty neat ideas in the process.

One Twitter user had an idea that sounds sort of like a Bowser spin-off combined with School of Rock: "I want a spin off movie of Jack Black Bowser going on tour with a group of other Evil kings and forming a Heavy Metal band. Bowser on vocals and guitar, King K Rool on drums, King Boo on bass, and King Bob Omb as backup guitar."

Another had a rather Disneyesque idea: "Bowser and The Beast...I mean Beauty and The Bowser would be a better spin-off for him."

A third just demanded a spin-off on the grounds that Jack Black rules: "Jack Black has done more for the Super Mario Bros. Movie than any of the rest of the cast. Give this man his 'Fury of Bowser' spin-off!"

Fans have been going wild for Black's take on the iconic bad guy, with his ballad 'Peaches' capturing the hearts of audiences everywhere.

He wants to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom by marrying Princess Peach, who is voiced by Anya Taylor-Joy.

He sings: "Peach, you’re so cool. And with my star we’re gonna rule. Peach, understand, I’m gonna love you ’til the very end.

"Princess Peach, at the end of the line, I’ll make you mine."

I mean, Jack Black serenading us as he pirouettes across a sound stage...what more do you want in life?

Come to think of it, we're on the side of fans on social media now.

Give the man his spin-off, he's earned it and a special place in our hearts.
