Live-Action ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ Movie Debuts First Poster

Sonic The Hedgehog

It’s time to roll around at the speed of sound, open your heart to His World while you Live and Learn, and prepare to let the speed mend it. You can look up what all that means later. Right now, the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film recently had some footage shown at Comic-Con Brazil, and while the rest of us out there probablwon’t get a chance to see that footage for ourselves, fans can rejoice at the arrival of a new motion poster for the upcoming adaptation of the blue blur.

The motion poster showcases a blue blur running past the screen twice — but not, unfortunately, followed by the SEGA logo — and collecting some rings before coming to a halt. And as you’ll notice, Sonic’s got some electricity crackling around his legs. Doesn’t look like this Sonic swallowed an Electric shield, though. Here, have a look at a still of the poster in the image below.

And you can also have a look at IGN‘s motion poster for the Sonic the Hedgehog film below.

It will be interesting to see how this film will ultimately play out. Not even counting the track record that video game adaptations have, but also factoring in how divided the Sonic fandom can be at times when you blend the colorful world of Sonic’s environment and then combine it with the real world. People tend to think of the likes of Sonic X or Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) as examples of how Sonic’s world just doesn’t blend with ours, although that’s been happening as far back as Sonic Adventure.

Then there’s Eddie Lebron’s recent Sonic fan film which… did not go over well, and for my money, not that big of a leap forward from the Mega Man fan film, but hey, combined with the people working on this (Deadpool director Tim Miller and Neal Moritz, producer of the Fast and the Furious films), perhaps this could turn out great. After all, the trailer for Detective Pikachu seemed to go over well with many, so maybe an official teaser for Sonic could do the same.

What do you think of the motion poster? Are you curious how a Sonic the Hedgehog film will work? Let us know in the comments below.

Directed by Jeff Fowler, Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog stars Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Jim Carrey, Lee Majdoub, Frank C. Turner, Adam Pally, Natasha Rothwell, Neal McDonough, Debs Howard, and Elfina Luk. The film will speed its way into theaters on November 8, 2019.

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.

Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.

1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.

Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home. 

2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home

Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.

3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic AffairSpider-Man Far From Home Happy Hogan Aunt May

This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.

4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury

The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.

The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?

5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus

During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:

“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”

Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
