Illumination's upcoming 2022 Mario Bros film will be upon us in a few years. It begs the question of Wario's place within this film or films if it succeeds. Will he make an appearance? Will he be saved for a sequel? Will we end up getting Wario films? How will Wario be portrayed? Will this film even see the light of day?

It's hard to tell right now, but it could honestly go either way.

On the one hand, I could see the 'traditional' Mario spinoff cast appearing in some form or another, if only to include all the elements people may expect from a Mario movie. In that case, Wario, Waluigi, Daisy, etc being in the movie would be fairly plausible.

Yet at the same time, there's always a chance they'll go really basic in a 'New Super Mario Bros' focused way and make it a fairly vanilla movie based on the 2D platformers, which would make Wario's chances less certain.

Something about this makes me think it may be the former though. And share more than a few resemblances to Mario + Rabbids in content and tone.

This sounds good, even though I don't really know what to think of it. We can only hope for a Wario appearance, but even if there is none, I still think I'm going to enjoy this.

Was it confirmed for 2022? I didn't know that. Seems so far away...

Honestly I don't hold hope to seeing Wario in much more than a cameo appearance in this film, since it's probably going to go more the route of the Mario RPGs and just have a more fleshed out 'Bowser kidnaps the Princess' plot, with maybe a new villain partnered with the Koopa King.

I could see Wario getting a bigger part in a sequel film though, allowing more of the expanded cast to appear and take part.

I hope though, would be for Wario and Waluigi to get little comedy shorts in between, since those two present a pretty comedic duo that would be rife for laughs. Just look at the Gamecube Sports games' intros for proof (why they stopped doing those I'll never know...)
