Sonic the Hedgehog Brawls Alongside Chris Evans in Early Concept Art
It seems like the delayed-release has worked well for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Jeff Fowler’s feature has debuted in theaters around the world last week, and it already set the record for the highest opening weekend box office for a video game adaptation. Now that everyone’s attention is on it, an early Sonic the Hedgehog movie concept art has made it to the web, featuring the title character fighting side by side with a Tom Wachowski who has the looks of Chris Evans. Evidently, The Avengers saga star never landed the role which went to James Marsden. Interestingly, Ant-Man‘s Paul Rudd was considered for the role of the sheriff of Green Hills as well.
You can check out the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie concept art in the gallery below.
Sonic the Hedgehog is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
The film should have originally hit theaters on November 14. After very negative feedback from audiences surrounding the design of the iconic character, though, Paramount delayed the release to February 14, 2020. Subsequently, they used that extra time to redesign Sonic to better fit his look from the video games.
Sonic the Hedgehog is now available in theaters. What do you think about the early Sonic the Hedgehog movie concept art? Would you have liked to see Chris Evans as Tom Wachowski? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
