Fan wishes can come true. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 it may be bringing in some major star power. Jason Momoa (game of Thrones, Aquaman) has been offered the role of Knuckles in the upcoming sequel. Whether or not the star accepts the role remains to be seen, but it looks like the filmmakers are aiming high on it.
According to a new report, Jason momoa in fact, he has been offered the role of Knuckles. It had previously been confirmed that the fan-favorite character will appear in the sequel, which is expected to begin production in March. Paramount has put the ball “in their court.” Now it is up to Momoa to accept or decline the offer. Sonic’s friend Tails is also expected to play a bigger role in the follow-up. The character appeared in a post-credits scene attached to the first film, indicating that Sonic and Tails were ready to team up in the sequel.
This would add another high profile project to Jason Momoa’s ever-growing roster. The actor is set to reprise his role as Arthur Curry in Aquaman 2, which is expected to begin filming sometime this year. He will also be seen as the hero in Zack Snyder League of Justice, which will hit HBO Max next month. Also, Momoa has Dune in the boat. The highly anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel will currently debut in theaters, and possibly on HBO Max, in October.
Even if Jason Momoa is busy on screen, he can probably find time to do the necessary dubbing work for Knuckles. Voice work is a bit more flexible. Ben Schwartz, who voiced Sonic in the first film, will also return. The central human cast, including James Marsden and Tika Sumpter, will also reprise their roles. Jim Carrey is expected to return as Doctor Robotnik, although that has yet to be confirmed.
Sonic the Hedgehog premiered in February 2020 and had a decent run in theaters before they closed for much of the year. Paramount was happy with the results, all things considered, as Sega’s video game adaptation grossed more than $ 300 million at the worldwide box office. If theaters hadn’t been forced to close, it might as well have done even better. As such, a sequel was quickly given the go-ahead, and much of the original creative team returned.
