Idris Elba’s Knuckles the Echidna is the breakout star of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with the British actor’s deep dulcet tones making hearts flutter world wide. The character spends a lot of the sequel as an antagonist for Sonic, having been satisfied he’s the dangerous man by Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik.
Now that the mud is selecting the sequel, followers have begun to look ahead to what’s subsequent. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 appearing in the next few years is now locked in, although earlier than that we’ll get a Knuckles-focused collection on Paramount Plus. This was announced last month, and now Screen Rant has a quote from Elba shedding some mild on it:
Well, we don’t know what it’s but, however we’re discovering it. Knuckles is a fish out of water. He’s new to the planet. I believe we would discover that little meals weblog or one thing.
The Knuckles present could be the primary within the burgeoning Sonic cinematic universe. President of Paramount Pictures Brian Robbins said last month that:
“We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Sega, Neal Moritz, and all our creative partners as we explore additive ways to holistically scale the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise across platforms and captivate its loyal audience around the world.”
With the tease of a serious fan favourite antihero becoming a member of the franchise for half three, the chances are huge. A Knuckles present with him studying about life on Earth sounds very humorous, however what else might be coming? Might we get a female-focused Sonic film about Amy Rose, Rogue the Bat, and Cream the Rabbit? How about watching the Chaotix crew launch their hip-hop profession? And — in fact — ‘Sega Bass Fishing with Big the Cat’ is an entire no-brainer.
Here’s hoping we get extra on their plans quickly. The Knuckles present is scheduled for Paramount Plus in 2023 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is now in theaters.
