Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is retired present successful theaters, continuing the bluish blur’s big-screen adventure. The sequel brings immoderate acquainted faces into the fold, similar Miles “Tails” Prower and a peculiarly buff Knuckles. While those are the series’ biggest stars, the video crippled series has a monolithic formed of heroes and villains, from Team Chaotix to Big the Cat.
For those hoping that the sequel mightiness unfastened the doorway for much characters, you’re successful luck. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is intelligibly mounting up for a sequel that’ll grow its the Green Hills struggle beyond Dr. Robotnik. That’s acknowledgment to an astir surreal post-credits stinger that’ll person fans screaming. Here’s what goes down successful the last moments of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and what it means for the future.
Spoilers to follow.
If you’re conscionable looking for a spoiler-free reply here: Yes, you’ll privation to instrumentality done the credits in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. After a nostalgic, animated batch of credits, there’s 1 abbreviated country to instrumentality in. That’s the lone bonus country successful the film, truthful consciousness escaped to permission aft that — though fans of the crippled whitethorn find themselves excessively stunned to move.
At the extremity of the film, Dr. Robotnik is erstwhile again defeated, falling disconnected his gigantic Eggman robot. The post-credits country takes spot successful the aftermath of that moment, arsenic G.U.N. agents hunt the perimeter for Robotnik, who has gone missing. We bash get to spot the destiny of 1 of his cohorts, arsenic Lee Madjoub’s Stone sneaks his mode done the country disguised arsenic a masked agent.
Then comes a infinitesimal Sonic fans ne'er thought they’d spot connected the large screen. A G.U.N. cause stops Commander Walters to archer him that she’s made a troubling discovery. When wiping Robotnik disconnected the subject organization’s database, G.U.N. discovered a concealed record dating backmost implicit 50 years. It contained coordinates to a hidden achromatic tract probe installation moving connected thing called Project Shadow.
Yep, that’s right. The camera pans to a containment compartment and dilatory reveals Sonic’s arch-nemesis Shadow the Hedgehog. He opens his eyes and the country ends.
After 2 movies wherever Sonic battles Dr. Robotnik, it was wide that Paramount would request a caller villain if it was going to support the bid going. Shadow is the astir logical adjacent step, arsenic he’s a literal foil for the bluish blur. If the threequel gets greenlit, you tin beryllium definite that Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles volition person to squad up to instrumentality down the achromatic hedgehog.
Does that mean that we’ve seen the past of Dr. Robotnik? Maybe, but lone due to the fact that of logistics. Jim Carrey has hinted that helium whitethorn retire from acting soon, truthful Robotnik’s vague destiny seems purposefully open. He could travel backmost and squad up with Shadow, oregon helium could vanish entirely. It seems improbable that the relation would beryllium recast close away, arsenic the 3rd movie won’t truly request Robotnik present that Shadow’s around.
The surreal cameo sets up immoderate questions for Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Will different Team Dark villains similar Rouge the Bat amusement up? Who’s broody capable to dependable him? Will helium get to sprout a literal gun, arsenic helium does successful his 2005 video game? I ideate that adjacent fans who didn’t click with the erstwhile 2 films volition beryllium funny to cognize those answers. Let’s anticipation the container bureau numbers are beardown capable that we get immoderate answers. In the meantime, Sonic’s adjacent video crippled adventure, Sonic Frontiers, is inactive scheduled to motorboat this year.
