Everything points to a mere coincidence.
A couple of weeks ago we finally had the long-awaited premiere of Super Mario Bros movie trailer in which we could finally see several of the video game characters making the leap to the big screen in a way that is faithful to what any fan could expect, since that tape of the 90s did not exist Despite what Wikipedia and other websites say.
In any case, it should be noted that the Super Mario Bros trailer has brought us remarkable moments that are already memes, such as the penguins throwing snowballs as if they were throwing weapons, as well as the first encounter between Mario and Toad. However, the greatest curiosity comes from the hand of a franchise that has barely touched Nintendo consoles, even though have found similarities with Diablo 2.
Diablo 2’s cinematic is very similar to what was seen in the trailer for the Super Mario Bros.
Given this, it must be said that in the Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction cinematic Baal can be seen arriving at the gates of Mount Arreat, where a single man emerges to rebuke him. After being sent, Baal opens the gates and invades the barbarian lands in order to reach Worldstone, which has obviously made more than one remember what happened with the Super Mario Bros trailer in which Bowser does exactly the same thing with the King Penguin.
It should be noted that the youtuber known as Zaptagious has been in charge of collecting the moments in which both works fit, thereby giving rise to a rather curious comparison. Of course, far from accusing the Super Mario Bros movie of plagiarizing this moment, everything seems to be rather the result of chance, which is sometimes even quite forced in comparison. You can see the video below:
Otherwise, it only remains to mention that the Super Mario Bros. movie will be released on March 31, 2023 in Spainbeing on April 7 of next year when it will be available in other markets.
