Not much is known about the direction of Sonic the hedgehog 2But the sequel has been revealed to feature a number of favorite video games, including Sonic’s loyal sidekick, Tails, and the super strong red echidna, Knuckles. The end of the first movie already hinted at where things can go, giving audiences a look at Tails in a post-credits scene.

Sources have since claimed that Knuckles will appear heavily in the sequel, with reports claiming that he will have a “significant role” in the follow-up and that the character’s appearance “will be bigger than a cameo.” Knuckles has also been reported to “stay true to his video game incarnation” meaning he will be able to slide and climb walls just like in the video game. His personality has been described as “serious in nature, but still credulous at times”. Fans have been given an idea of ​​what the character will likely look like in the movie, thanks to a statue of Red Echidna that was recently seen on set.

Actors as the voices of Tails and Knuckles have yet to be confirmed, but recent rumors have claimed that Aquaman Star Jason Momoa has been offered the role of Knuckles, and Paramount reportedly put the ball “in his court.”

Fowler has previously expressed his excitement about being able to bring more characters into the fray, having now established the focal point between Sonic and Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik. “For this first movie, we were really just looking at the 1991 game and seeing where it all started and keeping it simple,” explained Fowler. “Just try to catch Sonic and Robotnik and establish their rivalry because you don’t … I mean, I love it … There are a lot of great characters in the Sonic universe, but the most important thing is to just install Sonic and tell a little of the origin story with him, and do it in a way that really makes everyone fall in love with him as a character and just be more supportive. And then if all that goes well, then we can open it up and bring in some of these other characters that fans know and love. And yes, I mean, no one is more excited than I am to have that opportunity. “
