Going by how Paramount marketed Gemini Man with a trailer online Tuesday and that same trailer being attached to Endgame on Friday, I think they will do the same thing with Sonic. Trailer will release online tuesday of that week, and be attached to Pikachu on Friday.

So since Pikachu releases May 10th, then May 7th has got to be the day we get the trailer!

Good work! And bonus points for the Sunny image.

BUT a twist! Detective Pikachu releases in Japan next Friday on May 3rd... Could we see it this coming Tuesday instead?

BUT ALSO I just remembered Sonniku za Mubī comes out May 2020 in Japan so maybe not...?

In any event, it's gonna be imminent. Here's hoping that when we do get it, they've included some Eggman since Carrey got such a positive reaction at CinemaCon.

More like "super generic evil scientist" character.

Don't you know? Much like gloves and socks, people being bald is just simply too unrealistic and silly for this film about a 3-foot tall bipedal hedgehog that runs fast and busts up robots.

I mean, come on, an older person not having hair? That would just be silly.

If this become true, then we should expect an trailer to be rated and ready to be released and shown to the public. I guess this is good news, so we probably won't have to wait for the trailer that long anymore.

The sad thing is I actually really like that design.  It's expressive, functional, and neither over-nor-under-accessorized.  But shit; it sure isn't Robotnik, and even if I was to condescend to let this movie try to convince me that it should be more realistic and the game design won't cut it, it can't even uphold its own standard if it ends up using the game design in the final scene anyway.  That practically reeks of baiting a sequel hook to me; a hook many people may well not bite.

However, there is a tiny argument in its favor, I suppose: If they're targeting newcomers arguably the canon design doesn't scream "mad scientist" as much this does.  The canon design, and to an even further extent its earlier adaptations, plays a bit more on the would-be dictator side of the character.  Call the Carrey Robotnik design generic if you will, because it is, but if the character spends most of his origin story as a scientist employed by someone else, maybe this is okay as a gateway drug to a more game-accurate design.  Again, though, that's only a good thing on the assumption we get another movie that has a chance to be more faithful to the games; if this one is so badly received that we don't, then it will have been a huge wasted opportunity.

So, you like basically every evil scientist ever created.

Crazy hair, labcoat, gogles and gloves..THE ORIGINALITY IS OFF THE CHART. Perfect way to sell a character that's supposed to be instantly recognizable.

Also, having a big round belly is unrealistic too. What is he? Santa Claus? PAH!

Thinking about it, Will Sasso would have been a good if not better choice for Eggman.

ShreksDonkey already confirmed at least one death.  

This got me thinking. What if the person who died is Tom's partner who is likely played by Adam Pally (Iron Man 3 and Making History)? Collider confirmed that Adam will played an fellow cop. So, I assume he will be his partner and an minor character. I had an feeling that he probably is the one who will be killed off.

Pally will play a fellow cop, while McDonough’s role remains under wraps.

There's a few possibilities for this:

• We're getting a trailer like LITERALLY ON THE DAY of Endgame's OFFICIAL 100% FULL FILM release tommorow (probably not).

 

• We're getting a trailer next week.

 

• We're a trailer the same week as Detective Pikachu.

 

• We're getting TWO trailers. The Sonic and Robotnick ones (again, doubt it).

 

• We're getting a random trailer in the middle of May

 

And Maybe "stuff" means more than one thing. Like a movie tie in game trailer, and the film's trailer (again doubt it).

What ever is it the wait is fucking agonising haha. Proper poster and trailer would be awesome. I've dreamt of a Sonic movie since I was a kid back in the early 90's.

Me too. I can't wait for the trailer. I feel like we don't have to wait too long for it to come.:

Yeah. But there’s a difference between disliking a trailer and review bombing it over something dumb.

I feel like there are some people just waiting for the trailer to come so they can hit the dislike button without even watching it. They don't want to give this thing a chance.
