    Whether you want it to exist or not, The Fast and the Furious producer's Sonic the Hedgehog film is currently in production. A few new details were divulged through an exclusive story from IGN, including a promotional poster, which can be seen above, though it intentionally obscures Sonic's face. Sonic, voiced by Ben Schwartz (most known for his roles in DuckTales and Parks and Recreation) will have an attitude resembling a "juvenile delinquent", as he winds up on Earth, and has to deal with the way his new home works, while partnering up with a police officer (James Marsden) in order to take on Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik. The movie's production team has explained that, as seen in the poster, they wish to give Sonic a more "realistic" look, giving him fur and less cartoon-y shoes.

    During an interview, Tim Miller (Deadpool director) stated that he believes SEGA isn't pleased with the way Sonic's eyes will look, as there was difficulty in adapting the character's face for the setting of the movie. The entire film team is said to be working directly with SEGA in order to make sure the project represents the best of what Sonic the Hedgehog has to offer, and to create something that all fans can enjoy. Sonic The Hedgehog will premiere in theaters late next year, on November 8, 2019.

    The poster honestly looks like they hired someone in a horribly put together fursuit to play Sonic... Wasn't he supposed to be animated anyways? Why not just keep the animated look then instead of going for a "realistic" look? I get that we still haven't seen the full look of Sonic yet but judging off that poster it's going to be horrifyingly bad.

    I have never felt so much anger, horror, and fear, all from a single image. Holy shit, get this abomination away from me.

    That poster instantly reminded me of this image:
    [​IMG]

    It just looks so cringey with how they tried to make it look all edgy but forgot how Sonic's body's proportions work:rofl2:

    "From the producer of The Fast and the Furious" How ironic.

    Oh. My. Gosh. Those thighs are tight.
    I can't wait to see it, this is one of those magical movies that misses the mark so bad that it circles back to being good again. *walks off crying* :rofl2:

    They really did Sonic dirty what the fuck. These characters were not designed to be pictured like this, nightmare fuel.

    Looks like an actual human body with a Sonic head.
    Also, it reminds me of realistic Tempy.
