One way or another, the Sonic the hedgehog the movie was not a disaster – actually, it was pretty awesome! So we can’t wait to see what director Jeff Fowler, along with writers Josh Miller and Pat Casey, has up for the sequel. New characters are acquired: The latest film teased Sonic’s two-tailed mate in a post-credit scene. But what about Knuckles the Echidna? The once-villain, who became a friend and occasional anti-hero in the Sonic universe, was nowhere to be found in the first film. But it’s not hard to imagine how he would fit in, as this movie also started with Sonic being attacked by a group of ninja-type echidna.
As with many trendy genre films, the set photos spoiled the surprise, showing a Knuckles prop alongside Sonic and Tails. The photos, originally taken by @ pursuit23 on Twitter and published on Just Jared, imply it’s not just a cameo. But it’s hard to read too much in a stationary prop. I just hope the sequel ends up being as fun as the original – however, I imagine it will be hard to get past Jim Carrey’s gonzo performance as Robotnik.
