Idris Elba Will Play Knuckles in Sonic The Hedgehog 2

Sonic the hedgehog 2 is the sequel to the Sonic the hedgehog movie released in 2020, and this time the Sonic universe is expanding with new characters coming in like Knuckles, which we now know will be spoken by none other than Idris Elba.

The news came from the actor himself, who simply tweeted a photo of a new poster for the movie or what Knuckles’ signature spiked gloves will look like, or at least the one on his right hand, with the caption “Knock, knock…” followed by the movie hashtagged and his character name.

The news was immediately met with praise online, as many fans are very excited about this casting, and rightly so. Idris Elba is very arguably one of the best actors working in the industry right now, and after the success of the first movie, it’s clear those behind the scenes at least know how to make it entertaining, which raises the bar compared to other video game movies very high lays high.
