What does King Emerald mean to him?

When Idris Elba was officially set to play the super-powered red echidna in “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” the actor dug deep into the character’s background and identity, trying to find what it would take to shape and play a character well. All the information needed.

Director Jeff Fowler revealed: Elba is studying like crazy, hoping to bring out the best in the character.

From the first trailer so far, fans get a glimpse of Sonic’s heroic side, with Tails, the flying little brother joining them, and Knuckles in this trailer looks like a The villain has attracted widespread attention.

Fowler was well aware of what bringing the character to the live-action film would mean to longtime fans of the franchise.

In 2020’s “Sonic the Hedgehog,” we see Sonic’s adventures in a small town in the green hills, the series’ first foray into reality.

This time around, “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” will be darker and bigger.

Fowler said: “We put the speed of Sonic and the super strength of Knuckles in one movie and let them play freely, like Steve Rogers and Iron Man together, can create a lot of fights and action scenes. Choreography.

While the film isn’t about dark, stoic, and other esoteric themes, Fowler does take Knuckles’ character as seriously as Elba does.

Knuckles do have their own motives, and in Fowler’s mind, Knuckles actually has a very deep bond with our blue Scuds.

The conflict and battle between Dr. Ivo Robotnik and Sonic is more of a look and feel in nature.

But when you bring in a character like Knuckles, Fowler explains, he’s powerful and in many ways better suited to fighting than Sonic.

While Sonic does have a final bout with the Doctor at the end of the first movie, it doesn’t feel like much of a superhero.

And Knuckles’ entire existence is for honor, for being a fighter, playing a distinctly different style from Sonic from the start.

So we did that scene in the trailer where they faced off to make fans realize that Knuckles represents a pure force that Sonic didn’t expect.

This setting is extremely dramatic, and it’s an excellent basis for building a movie’s plot.

Fowler, who also worked on Blur Studio’s animation and visual effects design, said Knuckles also gave him more opportunities to enjoy pure highlights.

Tyson Hesse, lead author of the IDW “Sonic the Hedgehog” comic book series, tweeted after watching the latest trailer that the sequel has a more Sonic feel than the first film.

In the trailer, Tails and Sonic flew into the hail of bullets on the tornado together. Here, the classic scene from the comic book is restored, Fowler said. Therefore, in order to make this series of movies return to the beginning, I chose to use these visuals. The effects and characters are better integrated, giving Knuckles a high profile appearance and making him more of an earlier version.

As for Elba’s performance, Fowler said the actor was absolutely up to the task.

Despite Elba’s best efforts to control his voice, his Knuckles voice is vaguely sexy, perfect and unpretentious.

“Sonic the Hedgehog 2” is expected to hit theaters on April 8, 2022.
