In the film nerd community, few topics can get conversations started more quickly than the discussion of a crossover event -- look at the success of franchises like the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DCEU if you have any doubt of that fact. That said, that idea of crossovers is not limited to blockbuster franchises, so CinemaBlend recently decided to ask the Broken Lizard crew what villains they would want to chase in a potential follow-up to Super Troopers 2. Taking that idea and running with it, the guys had some excellent ideas from the DC and Star Wars worlds. The comedy troupe told us:
Jay Chandrasekhar: Jack Nicholson!
Kevin Heffernan: Just as a villain? Or as a-
Jay Chandrasekhar: As The Joker!
Erik Stolhanske: I would like to run into Solomon Grundy. He'd be a great bad guy.
Steve Lemme: I think take on Jabba the Hutt.
Not a bad assortment of bad guys for a group of hilarious highway patrolmen who have thus far mostly gone after crooked cops and stoned drivers. Jay Chandrasekhar would want to see Broken Lizard take on Jack Nicholson's Joker from Tim Burton's original Batman movie, while Erik Stolhanske would take things into the supernatural realm by having the Super Troopers cops face off against Solomon Grundy -- the DC zombie who was born on a Monday. Then there's Steve Lemme, who thinks they could head to the galaxy far, far away to take on Jabba the Hutt. While the odds of any of these crossovers happening seem pretty slim (the rights issues would create massive headaches), this most certainly shows how far Broken Lizard appears willing to push the limits of what the Super Troopers brand can do.
If you want a closer look at CinemaBlend's conversation with Broken Lizard (as well as how the guys reacted to each other's suggestions), then take a look at our Super Troopers 2 interview clip, below!
Of course, whether or not a third Super Troopers movie will ever actually happen largely depends on the success of Super Troopers 2. After all, the fact that this belated sequel even exists is largely due to the fact that Broken Lizard was able to raise money for the production budget through Kickstarter. In fact, when we asked about the status of Beerfest 2/Potfest, the Broken Lizard crew explained that Super Troopers 2's box office would play a substantial role indicating their ability to take on future sequels. If that is the case for the Beerfest follow-up, then it is likely also the case for Super Troopers 3.
