There’s a new rumour that Knuckles the Echidna will be appearing in Sonic the Hedgehog’s second big-screen outing. It’s not exactly a surprise considering he’s been such a big part of the video game series since first appearing in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, and when factoring in the other character revealed at the end of the original live-action Sonic movie.
This information comes from The Illuminerdi website, who shared an «exclusive update» revealing Knuckles’ appearance would be more than just a cameo. Warning:Original movie spoilers ahead…
«Knuckles the Red Echidna, will indeed have a role in the second movie. Many assumed that Knuckles may have a simple cameo appearance, similar to Tails in the original. However, our sources have indicated that he will have a relevant role in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, that will be larger than a cameo.»
Knuckles will apparently «stay true to his video game incarnation» – with the ability to glide and climb walls. While the sequel is still seeking a voice actor, here’s what his personality is expected to be like:
«his personality was described to us as serious in nature, but still gullible at times»
The production is also believed to be casting a supporting character named «Randall», who will only have interaction with human characters, and is also reportedly searching for an «A-List human cameo» to make an appearance. Names supposedly being thrown around include Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock.
