Idris Elba to play Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic 2 

Idris Elba has announced through his Instagram that he will be playing Knuckles the Echidna in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 2. In the post, Elba shared a picture of the character's fist.

While the first film hinted that a sequel would see Tails appearing, it looks as though we can expect Sonic's friend-competitor to also join the second film. At this point, it is still a mystery who will play Miles "Tails" Prower in the sequel. Ben Schwartz will also be returning to voice Sonic the Hedgehog in the sequel, while James Marsden and Tika Sumpter will reprise their roles, as will Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik. Just like the first film, Jeff Fowler will direct a script by Pat Casey and Josh Miller.

Elba was recently seen in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, and Netflix's Concrete Cowboys. Elba will next be seen in the Netflix Western film The Harder They Come alongside Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Lakeith Stanfield, and Delroy Lindo, coming out in November. The actor has also finished shooting for Three Thousand Years of Longing made by Mad Max: Fury Road-fame filmmaker George Miller and co-starring Tilda Swinton.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is currently scheduled for an April 8, 2022 release.
