Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Idris Elba Confirmed As Knuckles in The Sequel

The Sonic: The Hedgehog sequel is more than confirmed, and so is the first big name in the cast: Idris Elba arrives to play Knuckles the Echidna‘s voice, one of the franchise’s main characters and the protagonist’s friendly rival.

The actor announced a small teaser of Knuckles’ look in the film, which still has no premiere date.

Elba posted on his Twitter account an image of Knuckles‘ hand with his classic spikes, which in the games, allow him to grab onto walls and other obstacles.

Containing only a “Knock, knock….” in the caption, plus the hashtags #SonicMovie2 and #Knuckles, it’s easy to join the dots and realize that Elba will play the character in the sequel, again directed by Jeff Fowler.

In addition to Knuckles, we will undoubtedly see more of young Miles “Tails” Prower, Sonic’s allied fox, who even made an appearance at the end of the first film.

The only doubt remains about Robotnik, the villain played by Jim Carrey and the biggest name in the cast so far.
