The first poster for Illumination Entertainment's Super Mario Bros. movie was released today, and Nintendo fans seem pretty happy with the design! The poster features Mario, several Toads, and even provides a glimpse at Peach's Castle. It's a stunning poster, but Mario fans have noticed something missing: Mario's butt. Across social media, Nintendo fans have pointed out that Mario is lacking in the posterior, which is one of those things you never expect to actually type out. Nevertheless, many fans have had some funny things to say about that particular element of the poster, including how it might make it harder for Mario to defeat his enemies!
The Mario movie poster was released just two days ahead of the film's first teaser trailer. The teaser will debut at NYCC on Thursday, with a Nintendo Direct presentation set to begin immediately after at 1:05 p.m. PT. With the Super Mario movie set to release on April 7th, it's hard to say just how much new information will be revealed, but Nintendo is clearly starting to ramp up the hype ahead of the movie's release!

It's a bit... flatter than some were expecting.prevnext
Illumination probably wasn't expecting this discourse.
I didn’t expect the Super Mario movie poster reveal to cause everyone to start talking about butts, but I’m here for it. 🍑— Spiffy Skunk ✨🦨✨ (@spiffyskunk) October 4, 2022
It's a matter of practicality!
Where's Mario's butt? He can't kill Goombas with that! https://t.co/fa4VyGQVXh— Ashley🎨📝 (@ashley_actually) October 4, 2022
This time they've gone too far!
They took Mario’s butt away which makes no sense because he springs around bouncing and jumping and squatting everywhere. This is more offensive than the Lola bunny thing people were mad about. pic.twitter.com/pmuq3xUOFE— who decides what’s the bottom of all this? (@xwilkmanx) October 4, 2022
Must have been all those Ground Pounds.
The #mariomovie poster is amazing but.... why does mario have such a pancake butt.— Philip Centore (@CentorePhilip) October 4, 2022
The body shaming is real.prevnext
Mario's flat behind was canon all along.
Many have commented on Mario's butt being flat, but I think Odyssey confirms that Mario isn't really thicc. Yes, this is vital info.— LuigiKreepyKat ~ 🎃👻 (@LuigiKittyKat) October 4, 2022
