I must apologize for a recent tweet about a shot from The Super Mario Bros. Movie trailer that clearly many people found upsetting. The tweet seems to have struck a chord with many people, some calling me “weird” or “gay”. My intentions were simply to shed light on an interaction between a big gruff turtle monster and a handsome green Italian plumber that I interpreted as suggestive but clearly, this was a mistake, and I am sorry. The people just aren’t ready to accept the romance between Bowser and Luigi, and sadly, I fear they never will. I mean, think about it for a moment. In the trailers, Bowser has kidnapped Luigi and is interrogating him about his brother, Mario, who poses a threat to his ever-growing empire. Luigi is placed in a position of weakness, even more so with his body completely restricted by Kamek. Then we get to the infamous shot, where Bowser playfully lifts Luigi’s face with his large finger. He is doing this to create eye contact with Luigi, who up until this point has been looking away timidly. It seems at first glance to be a typical power play to assert his dominance over Luigi. However in contrast to his typical aggressive demeanor, Bowser is incredibly gentle with Luigi’s face. There is a fleeting softness to this moment that tells me that behind Bowser’s hard exterior shell, is a gentle monster that simply wants companionship, someone to hold. Anyway, sorry.
