If you thought casting Idris Elba in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 would pave the way for “Sexy Knuckles,” think again. As smooth as Elba may be, he recently spoke to Screen Rant to break the news to everyone that he won’t be going for that vibe in the upcoming sequel.
While there are certainly many out there who would say, protesting with great vigor, that Knuckles is “already sexy,” here’s what Elba had to say about his portrayal of the Echidna:
“Honestly, I cannot say. Contractually, I cannot say anything. But I wouldn’t say he was sexy. I don’t think I’m going for that. That’s for sure.”
Look, Idris Elba may not be “going for that” when he voices Knuckles, but somehow we find it doubtful that he won’t find a way to make it sexy. We’ll have to wait until we actually hear what he’s pulled out for the movie when it premieres in the U.S. on April 8, 2022.
