Two things must not happen:

1) Sonic must NOT kiss a human girl at the end or vice versa.

2) Knuckles does NOT look like a freak of nature. (I absolute HATE his new look)

Sony pictures is behind this? Well we all know that this is going to be one big train wreck and just when I thought that Sonic couldn't sink any lower. Sad

I dont see cause for concern here since Miller is just overseeing as a producer and also an employee from Miller's "Blur studio", which was responsible for the special effects on Deadpool is directing if nothing else this just might help this project to make it more contemporary.

lol Actually him and Ryan couldn't agree on Cable casting is what I heard. But a Sonic movie...I wonder if Shadow will be the "Deadpool" for it.

On this subject, a few more criteria might be added:

3) Doctor Eggman will only ever be referred to as 'Robotnik', ideally with an exaggeratedly rolling 'r' sound.

4) Scratch, Grounder and Coconuts will be given long-overdue cameos, complete with any and all catchphrases.

5) This immortal line from the previous motion picture must be included in its entirety.

Cat: If it was R-rated, then it'd be about Conker. Razz

Does it still count as kissing if they tongue wrestle without their lips ever touching? More seriously, watching that scene just made me doubt the idea even more: Sonic characters do not mix with realistic characters; actual humans can only be worse. Giving them hyperdetailed fur might help, but there's nothing to be done for Robotnik(casting an on-screen actor would just draw attention to the problem, I think).

Agreed. Those oversized guns are completely out of proportion to the rest of the design.

I quite liked how the first Sonic Adventure handled it: Sonic called him Eggman and it made him furious. By SA2 he was referring to himself as "Eggman", sadly.

Does "I HATE THAT HEDGEHOG!" appear anywhere but this series? Because it really needs to be included in any movie. Maybe he could say it as they dig him out from under something?

I have to wonder how they'll work it out if they try to take the movie in a serious direction, though.

Article I read said the issue was more stylistic in nature, with Miller wanting Deadpool 2 to fall more in line with the other flashy, big-budget superhero movies than Reynolds was comfortable with.

Just be glad it's not being directed by Michal Bay. Because it would be less about Sonic and more about his human friend trying tot get laid, with an over abondence of explosions, and Linken park will provide the song in the trailers and ending credits.

His Boom design along with everyone else's is exclusive to Boom.

Actually we all don't. Not all of are jaded Sonic fans who think everything that's done with the franchise outside our ideal suggestions and beliefs is a bad thing.

I don't recall Sonic X being written like that.

Becomes a lot less sad when you research into the fact that Eggman is his original name (and explains his naming gimmick for his creations) and not Robotnik which was created for english speaking audiences much like the aforementioned berserk button.
