Tech News: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to get another spikey sidekick.
In some ways, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie wasn’t a disaster, in fact, it was pretty good! So we’re curious to see what director Jeff Fowler came up with, along with writers Josh Miller and Pat Casey for the sequel. New characters are provided: In the previous film, Sonic’s two-tailed companion, Tails, was announced in a post-credit scene. But what about prewar Knuckles? The one-time villain, who became a friend and occasional anti-hero in the Sonic universe, did not appear in the first film. But it’s not hard to imagine how he would fit into the movie, since that movie also started with Sonic being attacked by a gang of ninja ants.

As with many advertised genre films, the photos from the set spoiled the surprise, showing a Knuckles prop standing next to Sonic and Tails. The photos, originally taken by @ pursuit23 on Twitter and posted on Just Jared, implies that this isn’t just a cameo. But it’s hard to read too much into a prop. I just hope the sequel is as fun as the original, although I imagine it will be hard to get past Jim Carrey’s bizarre performance as Robotnik.
