All New Ask Mark Matthew!

Today we bring you another 'Ask Mark Matthew,' containing 100% new material! Let's get started!
Jowie Ross writes: Are you going to make a Johnny Thunder movie set in Japan this year?
Mark: For this year, we have no Johnny Thunder movies planned. The one that we do, Johnny Thunder and the Wonders Beneath the Waves takes place in Bermuda, not Japan. However, we have considered Japan as a location for Johnny Thunder to visit, and since we have a six-movies-by-2025 plan for the Johnny Thunder Saga (including the three already released), the Japan idea is not ruled out yet.
Colby James writes: What on earth was Thomas on about he cannot respawn like in a video game? It's real life and he died because of his stupidity.
Mark: You're right on your second point. Thomas Skint died in Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients because of his stupidity. However, this stupidity stems from the fact that Thomas thinks life is a video game. To be honest, this was downplayed in the final movie, as the original script featured him cycling through his inventory to grab a pair of binoculars, stopping in a field because he claimed to have hit an invisible wall, and charging to his death because he thinks he'll respawn anyway, just like in the movie. I hope this clarifies any issues you had!
Our Toy World writes: Hey Andrew! My name is Richie, and I am right now working on a LEGO Johnny Thunder brickfilm. I was wondering if you could endorse it! Thanks!
Mark: Andrew is out right now, so I'll have to speak on his behalf. We typically don't endorse other people's movies (unless they're fan videos), but we'll see if we can accommodate for this request. I think that the best way to make this fair is if we endorse each other. After all, I think that if something like this were to work out well, then both sides should win. We'll see what happens.
That's it for today's edition of Ask Mark Matthew! Don't forget that if you have a question, send it either as a private message to YouTube user Mustache Maniacs Film Co. or as a message on the "Contact Us" page on the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. website. Until then, we'll be making movies!
