Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is out now, and the Sonic movie 2 post-credits scene offers a big tease for the planned storyline in the platform game film sequel. The Sonic movie 3 villain is seemingly confirmed, and there’s the possibility that Jim Carrey’s Dr. Robotnik may not be back.
In February this year, Paramount confirmed that Sonic 3 has already been greenlit – along with a live-action spin-off TV show for the Idris Elba-voiced Knuckles. Speculation has been rife amongst fans as to what the storyline for the third movie could be, especially as director Jeff Fowler confirmed that they’ll be “cherry-picking” from the games rather than following in chronological order.
A further complication arose yesterday when Jim Carrey suggested he might retire from acting, which would leave Sonic 3 without Dr. Robotnik. However, with Sonic 2 now out, the movie’s post-credits scene clearly reveals the villain of the next film – and confirms some fan theories, too.
