In a conversation with Collider, Smith said:

[Goldstein and Daley are] incredible. They’re so funny and they have such clear vision. I loved Game Night. That movie is so good and so funny. And it’s such a clear, specific story. It doesn’t try and be anything that it’s not. I think they approached this the same way. I can’t spoil too much but it’s action-packed, thrilling, funny as hell… it’s all of the things and yet it has a clear idea. That specificity is key in storytelling and John and Jonathan do that so well, being like, "This is the story we’re telling but they’re making it enjoyable the entire time." This is me not trying to spoil the movie in any regards. I’ve given away no details.


The movie, which also stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Hugh Grant, and Sophia Lillis, is scheduled for March 3rd, 2023.

I don't believe in the no-win scenario
I had a buddy clear the room one time, that thing had some hang time, it was like a poltergeist, it still stunk 20 minutes later.
They could really take advantage of surround sound systems in theaters with this. Even pipe in a skunk smell to get the full effect. Pretty sure this would sell lots of tickets.

Dispite an increase in popularity, D&D just doesn't have the cultural penetration for a resonant parody film aimed at a mass market, much less a Holy Grail style farce.

My hope is a good fantasy movie with action, character based humor, and in-fiction D&Disms. If they must include a scene of the actors around a table playing their characters, I'd prefer it be limited to a post credits easter egg.

Hopefully they didnt rely too much on the funny part. Humor sprinkled in here and there is good but if this is an action packed comedy that has me a little apprehensive. "Funny as hell" is relative depending on who you ask, so we'll see.
The commercial success of a good number of the Marvel movies would show that comedy and action co-existing is a well developed and well received style.
