Sonic Prime seems like an interesting opportunity with that purported multiverse angle.

@  Shadow : (12 May 2021 - 05:04 PM)

Barely. Holding out for the big update.

I've been floating around here and there.

@  Lord Exor : (12 May 2021 - 04:59 PM)

I think it's been about a decade at this point, right?

I will check things out once in awhile, but right now I am mostly trying to work on getting back on my own two feet after struggling for a near decade.

Deadline is reporting that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has found its villain with the addition of comedian Jim Carrey who will play Robotnik in the film. Carrey joins a cast for the live-action/animation hybid that includes Ride Along‘s Tika Sumpter and Westworld‘s James Marsden.

Also known as Dr. Eggman, Robotnik has been the primary antagonist of the Sonic franchise for decades, making his debut appearance in the first game in the series.

Sonic the Hedgehog will take its cues from the popular games, focusing on Sonic’s attempts to battle the evil Doctor Robotnik who is on a quest to assemble the Chaos emeralds. This mark the first time that the Sonic games have been adapted for the big screen, but the character has previously appeared in both Wreck-It Ralph and this year’s Ready Player One.

Neal H. Moritz from Original Film Inc. (Fast and Furious series) will produce the adaptation which has Jeff Fowler (Blur Studio, Academy Award nominee for 2005 Best Animated Short Film Gopher Broke) set to direct and Deadpool‘s Tim Miller executive producing. Sonic the Hedgehog film will open in theaters on November 15, 2019

Just as I feared. A live-action Eggman...

Then again, if they play their cards right, maybe it won't be so bad.

Guys, this may not be a bad choice. Jim Carrey is considered one of the best character actors out there. I mean look at his roles over the years. Favorite one is Count Olaf

 

He could pull it off

“Some say that he is the only man in history to buy a DFS sofa when there wasn’t a sale on, and that his favourite boxing venue is Munich airport. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”

 

“Some say that if you hold him in the wrong way he doesn’t work properly, and that just very recently he developed an irrational hatred of Rubens Barrichello. All we know is he’s called the Stig.”

He's a close visual approximation of Eggman from Sonic 2006 if they add facial hair and remove his scalp's hair.

I have no doubt he can pull off a good Eggman, I was just taken aback by the announcement. It sounds like one of those fake April Fools headlines that sounds too weird to be believed, yet it's totally genuine.

I don't really want Eggman to be like Jim Carrey's Riddler performance. I would have liked someone more theatrical like John Goodman or Ben Kingsley.

I made an image of what Dr. Eggman looks like with Jim Carrey's face superimposed.

Oh man, John Goodman would have been SPOT ON.  I dunno, this is so far the BEST piece of news we've got for the film...

Honestly, overlooking the "Olive Garden" advertisement, since I didn't feel like it was the focal point of the movie, I really enjoyed it. My boyfriend and I both saw it last Saturday. It was amazing and we look forward to see it again, and adding it to our Blu ray collection.

The best I can advise is see it for yourself and make your own judgement call. There were plenty of nods to the Sonic fandom that I'm sure fans would appreciate, but I don't want to give out too many spoilers.
