    Sonic has gloves. They're going to be making some major changes..
     
    What happens to merchandising now? The designs are going to be completely different

    Start on page 380 and read 55 pages.

    We don't have to treat it like a zero sum game though. If the license proves to be profitable, it can help pave the way to an animated movie rather than hinder it. Into the Spider-verse is a perfect example of that. Everyone knows that franchise spits out live action movies and prints money, but eventually someone got off their tail and realized the demand/profitability of an animated take - and we got an awesome film from it.
    If the Sonic movie does take in its fair share of $$$, then the single biggest complaint about the film (why isn't it an animated movie) won't just go unnoticed. I'd argue the more profitable it is, the marketable the franchise is, the higher the likelihood of getting that animated film. As opposed to the movie bombing and we wait 10 years before anyone is willing to touch it with a 10 foot pole.

    I hope they ditch the Boost formula and return to the Adventure style of gameplay. The boost formula is extremely limiting

    I don't get why they didnt use the Badniks. They could have made them look much scarier and less silly looking since since what Miller is going with. I would have been fine with a reimagined take on the Badniks that hewed closer to Bayformers 
     



    The robots they went with aren't even robots. They're just drones with guns. Lot of misses potential here.

    Well, as long as most kids enjoy, that's what ultimately counts I guess. Like Myst said, the movie is for a new generation of fans so if they succeed in bringing kids who dont know Sonic in, I guess Paramount will be happy.

    I saw the trailer at my showing for Detective Pikachu and the kids seem to enjoy it quite a bit. I was in a packed theater

    Anybody remember this? Haha, oh man. 

    That's what I imagine Sonic would have looked like had this movie come out in the 80s

    Yes, but those are his own designs. The B.A.D.N.I.K. could have been one of Robotnik's unique, signature patents. The animal robots could have worked considering they are bringing him in from his own devices, so whatever he brings to the table would be what the Government needs to capture Sonic. It doesn't have to make sense to Government officials, it makes sense to Robotnik and they could have him say something about his brain being superior to theirs if the question comes up. He's the wild card they bring in to solve this problem, animal robots are just an extension of his odd flamboyance and Intellect that others do not understand. 
     
    I don't know, I feel like the animal inspired machines are a classic Sonic staple and they could have been that extra element to give this movie a unique aesthetic/forge it's own visual identity that's still rooted in the lore of the franchise. They seem to be going for Sonic 1, so it would have made sense to have that connection. 
     
    Imagine a highway chase scene between Sonic and a group of Moto Bugs and Buzz Bombers. It could have been epic.

    He's already a weird dude that they hesitate to call in at the start of the movie, there's no reason why "compulsively designs robots based off animals" couldn't have been part of that. It's not even that weird an idea to start with, considering some real-life robots take inspiration from animals. Just take a spider-ish robot, jazz up the design Hollywood style, give it a net shooter or a grappling wire or something and bam, it's a badnik.

    I have. When this movie was first announced I had this mental image of Buzzbombers blowing up cars on the freeway, and Tom firing at some with a police rifle, while Sonic spindashes a few.
    I also had this idea that Sonic would toss rings like grenades at enemies, but oh well. Portals work too.

    This might be a reasonable compromise. All this person did was adjust the face slightly and it looks so much more bearable.

    It feels a bit weird that the backlash to the Sonic movie is now within the mainstream instead of confined to this thread. It's like the gates blew off their hinges and the ghosts of misfortune were set free to terrify people on mass instead of just us poor heathens stuck within the confines of Sonic Silent Hill.
