Jack Black is STEVE in the Minecraft Movie?!

Jack Black might be nabbing another prominent video game role. He’s joined the cast of the 2025 Minecraft live-action (!!!) movie, and is rumored to be playing Steve.

Additional Context:
Jack Black is indeed gearing up to dive into the blocky world of Minecraft. He has confirmed his role in the upcoming live-action Minecraft movie, where he is rumored to be playing the iconic character Steve. This news comes after various changes in the movie’s direction and storyline over the past few years. The film, set to release on April 4, 2025, is directed by Jared Hess and also stars Jason Momoa, Danielle Brooks, and Emma Myers​​​​​​.

This isn’t Black’s first foray into video game adaptations. He recently voiced the character Bowser in “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” bringing his unique charm to the villainous character. Black’s involvement in these projects highlights his versatile talent and his growing presence in the video game movie genre.

In addition to the Minecraft and Super Mario Bros. movies, Jack Black is also known for his role in the Borderlands movie, where he voices the character Claptrap.

Jack Black’s involvement in video game-themed movies isn’t limited to his upcoming role in the Minecraft movie or his past roles in “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” and the Borderlands movie. Another significant addition to his video game-related filmography is his role in the Jumanji films, specifically “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and its sequel “Jumanji: The Next Level.”

In these movies, the Jumanji universe is reinvented as a video game world, where the characters are sucked into the game and take on the avatars they choose at the start. Jack Black plays Professor Sheldon “Shelly” Oberon, an avatar chosen by one of the teenagers. His character is a stark contrast to the teenager’s real-world personality, adding an interesting and humorous dynamic to the film. This role further showcases Black’s versatility and comedic talent, as he navigates the challenges and quirks of being a video game character within the adventurous and often perilous world of Jumanji.

These films, blending action, comedy, and a unique take on the video game concept, have been quite successful and well-received, adding a notable chapter to Black’s career and the genre of video game-inspired movies.
